Driver-update: ATi Catalyst 8.1

AMD logo (60 pix) Eerder maakten we al melding van de gelekte Catalyst 8.1-drivers, maar nu heeft Advanced Micro Devices de stuurprogramma's officieel vrij gegeven.

Wijzig sortering
Ook zijn er twee nieuwe features beschikbaar:

MultiView™
Catalyst 8.1 introduces MultiView™ support. This feature provides for hardware accelerated OpenGL rendering across multiple graphics adapters. MultiView™ will provide hardware accelerated 3D rendering in a system containing multiple graphics cards on an extended desktop arrangement. This feature will allow for the rendering performance and additional frame buffer resources to be evenly shared with the second and third graphics adapters. This allows for a 3D applica- tion to have the same performance running on a secondary or third display device as if it were running on the primary display device. This feature will be supported under Windows XP (32 and 64 bit versions), Windows Vista (32 and 64 bit ver- sions), and the Linux operating system.

ATI’s Folding@Home
Folding@Home is a distributed computing project designed by the Stanford Uni- versity. The application performs intensive simulations of protein folding. This simulation will help researchers uncover how certain diseases develop. Fold- ing@Home uses distributed computing to simulate protein folding, the workload is broken up into small work units and distributed across hundreds of thousands of computers over the internet. You can help find the cure to many different diseases!
For more information on Catalyst 8.1 (for Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Linux versions), including all of the resolved issues in this release, please see the Catalyst 8.1 release notes found in driver download section.

Die Folding@Home is al sinds 2006 beschikbaar, niet zo nieuw meer dus ;)

Ik tippelde er ook in hoor :)
Zouden de linux versies van de drivers niet gelijk uitgebracht worden? Maarja... echt hoog zijn mijn verwachtingen toch niet meer. ;)

Is het nou aangeraden om ccc mee te installeren?

Ik heb altijd dat dan mijn pc sloom word met opstarten.

ps. ik heb al atitool geinstalleerd.
Heb je een pentium II of III? :+

Als je systeem het prima doet zonder instellingen te veranderen met CCC, dan kan je beter CCC niet installeren!

Wel installeren als je een roteerbaar LCD scherm hebt i.v.m. rotatieopties.
Deze instelling kan XP niet voor je doen! :?

Nee ik heb een e6600,

maar dat terzijde: ik heb altijd het gevoel dat ccc een beetje bloated en log is (zie installatie bestand), maar dat kan ook aan mij liggen. Iig draait het nu zonder problemen.
Hmmz... ik zal wel de enige zijn die er last van heeft, maar ik vraag het toch even.

Hebben meer mensen er last van dat de installer niet functioneerd? Bij mij start hij de installer, pakt de onderdelen preventief uit, geeft 3 foutmeldingen, dan kan ik niets anders doen dan dom doorgaan, zodra ik Express install of Custom install kies crashed de installer er uit.

Ik zal straks nog even kijken op de betreffende machine om welke foutmeldingen het ging.
Dit had ik ook maar dan een paar dagen geleden met de 7.12 driver. Uiteindelijk heb ik de geunzipte driver handmatig geupdate via het configuratiescherm.
ik krijg met deze leuke 4 bit kleuren en 640x nog iets resolutie,ook met de 8.1 hotfix,me back naar 7.12
EDIT: met een 1950 pro agp overigens

Ik merk met Colin McRae DIRT dat de framerate een klap heeft gekregen maar de beeldkwaliteit een boost. Ik kan geen getallen noemen maar het viel mij erg op.
De mobile versie die je hebt geplaatst is voor Windows XP. Heb je ook de link voor Vista?
gewoon de normale versie (vista) aanpassen met Mobility Modder. Dat zorgt ervoor dat je die desktop drivers ook op je notebook kan installeren! (voegt o.a. mobility kaarten toe aan een inf file)
Zijn hier nog mensen waarbij de kleuren anders woorden weergeven bij bijv. google of in windows?
En de drivers crashen ook regelmatig bij mij en dan heb ik dus gewoon een zwart scherm. Vroeger ging die dan nog terug naar windows (windows functioneert dan nog gewoon) en kreeg ik een melding van Ati dat de drivers waren gecrasht. Maar nu gaat hij dus gewoon niet meer terug naar windows en gaat het scherm niet meer aan. Dus moet ik restarten. Baal er behoorlijk van en heb het alleen onder XP en niet bij een andere Vista PC. :\
Ja hier ook spijtig genoeg.
Had dit reeds bij een nieuwe installatie met de 7.12 drivers en had gehoopt dat 8.1 verbetering zou brengen. Echter het is ofwel truetype smoothing kiezen (yuck!) ofwel de smoothing in zen geheel afzetten.

Het krijgen van een zwart scherm, waarbij hij niet meer terug naar windows gaat heb ik af en toe ook. Daarnaast krijg ik ook af en toe problemen met Atimkdag.sys.

Ik heb Windows Vista Premium in combinatie met 2600XT

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
