battlefield 2 lijkt er bij mij stabieler op te lopen. minder desktopcrashes iig
Nou Ik knal er met een reboot uit.. nu al twee keer. Na het installeren van de Ati drivers.
Sterker nog Ik heb de oude maar teruggezet want niet alleen BF2 maar ook andere dingen liepen slecht.
Op het buroblad waren sommige icoontjes opeens vertekend. In BF2 waren de textures opeens heel vreemd. Ik heb trouwens de X800 Pro en en AMD 64 systeem.
Ik heb zefl geen ati kaart meer, maar alsnog, 5 a 15% winst in 3dmark05...Ode aan de programeurs van catalyst, want dat is heel veel voor enkel een driver update. ATI ziet er goed uit de laatste tijd. Gelukkig gaan ze niet de NV30 fout maken een een GPU leveren die later nix meer waard is.. Worden daar trouwens al types van ondersteund in deze drivers?
Letop:

The exact magnitude of these performance benefits will vary depending on the product configuration, clock speeds and available system memory. All of the changes noted are specific to 64MB and 128MB framebuffer configurations. Performance of 256MB and 512MB boards is already very good at these settings.

Nu maar afwachten wat dit in de praktijk opleverd...
Het is dus wel de moeite waard om deze drivers te installeren op mijn Radeon 8500. Ik heb de laatste 5 versies overgeslagen omdat er gewoon geen performance-verschil was ;)
offtopic:
Gefelicteerd!
Misschien even slim om te vermelden waarvoor ;)

Het gaat dus om de 10.000ste meuktracker!!

Eveneens gefeliciteerd aan de melders en posters !!
Willen jullie voortaan wel eens even wachten op de officiële feestelijkheden?

HIER moet je feesten! En veel plezier en namens de crew jullie ook bedankt voor tienduizend enthousiaste draadjes :)
Toch netjes.. verbeteringen voor Comanche 4, een spel van 5 jaar oud
offtopic:
Het valt me op dat commanche 4 bijna elke driver update voorbij komt :P
En ook bijna elke benchmark.. terwijl ik niemand ken die dat spel speelt.
Vergeet Serious Sam ook niet, aan die vent wordt ook nog voortdurend geprutst. Het is haast zo'n geöliede Lara Croft, maar dan zonder de siliconen, maar met steroïden van 'ATI PowerPills' ofzo ;-)
Of het is een bug van 5 jaar oud die ze nu pas opgelost hebben 8-)
Hier niet al te best op m'n 9800pro, in BF2 allemaal rare lijnen, artifacts en vastlopers ... terug naar 5.6 voor mij ;)
Interessant. Net pas BF2 aangeschaft en na één avond probleemloos spelen de Catalyst 5.7 geïnstalleerd. Mede vanwege de goede reactie hier :). (Ik weet niet meer zeker wat mijn vorige versie was maar ik dacht 5.4) Gister na één ronde ineens flinke artifacts. Computer een uurtje uitgezet, in-game videosettings terug naar default, kast (nou ja, SFF dan :Y) ) open gezet maar weer na een ronde flinke artifacts. Dit alles ook met een 9800Pro (128MB).

Vanavond maar eens 5.6 proberen.

[EDIT]
Hmmm, 5.6 helpt niks :(
Probeer fast write en/of combined writing even te togglen.
Dat verhelpt altijd het probleem bij mij in UT2004

Na een verse driver install zet hij die dingen weer standaard aan.
Ja, hiero ook hetzelfde. Nooit last gehad van rare strepen/lijnen/wat dan ook in Battlefield 2, mja, niet onoverkomelijk. Gewoon even weer de oude erop.
Die kaart van mij gaat steeds harder lopen vanaf 5.6 :P

Ik had de nieuwste van Omega ook geprobeert maar die komen niet meer in de buurt bij ATI :)
En je hebt een: ....
De Dantooine-Bug in SW-KOTOR is iig nog niet opgelost ...
Nog steeds de aanpassing in de inifile maken ..

[Graphics Options]
Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1
Ik heb een Asus 9800 XT kaart en er is geen snelheidswinst, maar ook geen snelheidsverlies te bespeuren met de nieuwe driver 5.7
Snelheidswinst alleen bij 64 en 128 Mb dus.
Ik mag dan op heden een 6800le hebben van Nvidia, de driver updates en de kaarten van ATI rocken tha Bomb.

Bij nvidia weet je nooit precies wat er veranderd is aan de updates. Je moet maar hopen dat wanneer er perfomance verbeteringen in de drivers zitten, de beeldkwaliteit niet op een dubieuze manier verminderd is...


ATI rules, echt ze doen het goed en blijven eerlijk.
