I have a Windows 8 HP Laptop with AMD. My biggest problems is it getting really hot(metal build) and occasionally my screen will sometimes dim even though I have it at max brightness. I've done some Googling and most of my results pointed to the AMD Catalyst Control being a root cause.

He said AMD not consoles.

AMD has a place. It's second place.

I don't mind being second place.

I still get better performance than poster #4 with my 770 GPU.

...nothing personal, just proving a point.

Consoles are powered by AMD because they embrace their inferiority.

I'll be sure to phone up the AMD CEO and give him a trophy for second place in a two man race.
