Whats the advantage of this update??

better gaming performance.

Dude, teh latest version is 8.882.2.3

Can u please upload a pic of ur software version (in CCC i mean)
And some graphic settings too. PLEASE>

Edit: i got it brother, my cc was not able to find any update. it was saying that i have the latest version..

I got it from here: vista-7 32 bit -http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_win7-32.aspx
vista-7 64 bit - ATI Radeon? Video Card Drivers

@rider: Bro i updated my driver to 12.6, but in device manager, when i go to display drivers. it shows that driver for 7400m (while mine is 6490m) is installed.... WTH is this??

These links are for amd radeon GPUs for desktops and other laptop brands. hp is providing automatic switching facility like fermi cards of nvidia so they modified a little setup. hence, those setups can not be installed, better to update drivers from hp website and update manually from desktop > right click > graphic properties > information > Software Update > Click on Check for updates now... and download the update, after completing of download install it and enjoy 12.6!
 
Actually, hp still have old ones on their WS.
And, i am not able to update SW V. from CCC !!
Actually, the one i had installed was also, 12.6 but DRIVER PACKAGING VERSION WAS DIFFERENT FROM YOURS !! (IS THAT BCOZ I HAVE A DIFFERENT GPU)

if you are not able to update from catalyst, there is so error in software.. reinstall may fix.

I'm now getting upto 45-50fps in max payne 3 in these settings :hyper:

I bought this in early june from flipkart.. completed in couple of days.

Catalyst 12.6 really boosts the performance about 25% more.

May be you are playing on Intel HD 3000 GPU. Go to configure switchable graphics and set max payne 3 application to high performance by browsing to game location.

To update drivers go to desktop > right click > graphic properties > information > Software Update > Click on Check for updates now...

And enjoy catalyst 12.6

For those who want more power and are willing to pay a bit more : you can customize dv6. My friend's room-mate has a dv6-6000 series laptop with i7 2760QM. He got it for around 5-10k extra and says that he was also offered Radeon HD 6950M for 5k more ! Another friend just ordered dv6-7000 series with an SSD. All you have to do is keep enquiring about customizing on the customer support section of the HP India website, until they mail or call you.
The only downside is that they deliver the laptop in very few cities in India.

EDIT-BF3 ran after a reboot,but Max Payne 3 is stuck at Loadimg screen.

After customization with core-i7 2760QM and HD 6950M what remain the final price paid by your room-mate?

Yeah,hp has been doing this since a long time now,and they do give you a wide range of choices for processor and graphics both;the downside is that delivery is restricted to only a few cities,mainly metros.
Unfortunately I wasnt aware of this practice when I was in market.I found out this when I saw a dv6 with backlit keyboard and 1080p display with my senior at college.

May be,you can try your luck with hp indiA's customer care.I had read an article a long time ago that hp may look at giving customers an option to customise their laptop,in order to counter dell.This was planned on a short basis to check popularity and how public reacts,before making it official.

Someone please help.
