If applied, this package will install AMD Display driver version 8.97.100.7, OpenCL build 10.0.937.2, as well as the producer’s Catalyst Control Center (CCC) 2012.1116.1514.27190.

However, bear in mind that, if you are running Microsoft’s Windows XP platform, OpenCL will not be available through this release, while the Catalyst Control Center version will be is 2012.1116.1444.26409.
