dat deed hij dus niet. Er stond blijkbaar nog een installfiletje ergens. Lekker van Ati dat ze dat effe zeggen :S Je moet dus EERST alles erafgooien en dan rebooten. Eer je daar achter bent is het al een jaar verder..

Maar tis gelukt, eens testen..

wat zie je dan bovenaan? - Installation Instructions.

en als je daar opklikt: je product kiezen en dan zie je weer:

"Introduction

These instructions are for those that are trying to update their software to the latest version. To update your software, you first need to remove the existing ATI software that is present on your system. " ..... etc.

Volgens mij niet meer dan 2 klikken vanaf de page waar de drivers kan downloaden. :)
sorry, maar ik vind die site een zooi. Ik heb echt lang moeten zoeken voordat ik dat vond. Waarom staat dat niet gewoon onder die download, voor de handigheid? Maar ik ben blond he, misschien scheelt dat.

[Reactie gewijzigd door Daso151 op 6 maart 2008 17:02]

Geinstalleerd en draaien hier prima op 2x MSI RX3850 256MB, in Crysis merk ik met crossfire een verbetering van7Fps meer en minder framedrops onder XP
andere games draaid het wat vloeiender en COH nog niet geprobeerd.
Straks even Vista opstarten en dan deze driver daar onder DX10 eens proberen, Crysis was een ramp om te spelen onder Vista en COH draaide ook niet echt geweldig met 8.2

Ben benieuwd onder Vista.....
hmm slechte drivers moet ik toegeven , heb hier een CF setup van twee HD 2900XT's en met Cat 8.1, 8.2 als 8.3 krijg ik veel CrossFire bugs zoals beeld flikkeringen enzo dus ik heb vrolijk weer Cat 7.12 er op gezet en weg waren de narige omstandigheden en nu draait Doom3 1.3.1 als Flight Sim X ook weer normaal.

het is jammer dat ze alleen op de 3800 serie concentreren en niet op de oudere kaarten van de 2000 series als daaronder, ik had ook leuke veranderingen verwacht maar helaas, Ati failed again.

Toch moet ik toegeven als eend river goed naar toebehoren werkt dan werkt de rest ook wel goed mee, alleen heb ik de laatste tijd veel gezeur gehad met drivers ook de reden dat ik nog steeds 7.12 draai, en ja het gedoe van telkens de oude er af en de nieuwe er op ben ik al een ende zat, me volgende sys maar een kaart van het groene kamp.

[Reactie gewijzigd door Gold Leader op 11 maart 2008 00:03]

Wat kan je nog meer doen voor een oudere kaart? Als het maximale eruitgehaald is dan kan je er toch niets meer bij doen? Ergens zit een grens en ook de nieuwere series moeten ondersteund worden.

The floppy drive may fail to read or write under Vista on a Dell XPS410 system.The floppy drive may fail to read or write under Vista on a Dell XPS410 system.

Vondt ik overigens wel weer grappig om te lezen :+

@Smierlo, volgens mij is het iets anders dan je videokaartdriver alleen.

Enorme lijst verbeteringen! Amd is flink bezig geweest. Gelijk even uitproberen, crossfire wordt nu ook steeds aantrekkelijker.
Alleen zo jammer dat de AMD/ATI zich het meeste bezig houd met "performance" en "features" in plaats van de bestaande problemen op te lossen. Vooral die lijst "known issues".

Blijf het toch raar vinden dat ze het toestaan dat die lijst blijft groeien, vind het eigenlijk een kwalijke zaak. Maar goed.

Hopen dat m'n dual monitor probleem stiekem wel gefixt is ondertussen.... Zwaar frustrerend.

[Reactie gewijzigd door Sypher op 6 maart 2008 15:42]

Kwalijke zaak?

Bekijk het van de zonnige kant:
Het aantal problemen over een lange tijd blijft vast gemiddeld, alleen is er bij AMD dus blijkbaar meer bekend dan in het verleden. Waar eerst een veel voorkomend probleem niet in de known issues staat, staat hij er nu wel bij.

Een zo groot mogelijke lijst met known problems geeft alleen maar duidelijkheid aan de klant.

Dus: aantal problemen blijft gemiddeld (er worden dingen gefixed en er komen dingen bij, thats the way it goes), alleen de lijst met de voor AMD bekende problemen groeit.

Een beetje een warrig verhaal van mij, maar ik hoop dat je begrijpt wat ik bedoel :P
die lijst met known isssues is goed. Nvidia heeft nooit zulke mooie "patch" notes. Known issues zijn goed, immers een probleem moet wel bekend zijn om hem op te lossen.

Deze patchnotes zijn precies wat ik verwacht van patch notes.
Connecting a CRT and an HDMI display device followed by enabling clone mode and setting the resolution to 1024x768 32bpp 60Hz. no longer results in corruption being noticed on the secondary display device when resuming from suspend mode.
Vooral dat soort notes doen mijn hersens kraken. Andere fabrikanten zetten dit er neer in 5 woorden ofzo.

Flippin it, netjes om bugs op die manier te reproduceren :)
Als het sneller kon dan hadden ze dat er heus wel sneller neer gezet, verwoord het maar is in 5 woorden zonder dat er informatie vervalt...

Vind het wel jammer van AMD dat die drivers zo stip uit moeten komen, heb je ook meer kans op bugs.
Ik krijg het niet geinstalleerd. Bij de installatie, vista X64, krijg ik elke keer de melding dat het INF bestand niet kan worden gevonden. De Installatie heb ik herhaaldelijk gedownload (ook de losse driver..) maar de installatie blijft mislukken. Iemand een idee / oplossing?

(hd2900xt)

edit: Toch maar 8.2 geinstalleerd. Dat ging probleemloos.

[Reactie gewijzigd door Hann1BaL op 6 maart 2008 18:13]

Heb bij mijn buurjongen 8.2/8.1/8 beta veel vaker geinstalleerd maar het werkt gewoon niet. 7.12 zonder problemen geinstalleerd. Hij heeft een HD2900PRO

Een verse Vista install en je kan hem installeren 8)7
ik blijf ook bij 8.2.

AMD mag eerst het probleem oplossen daarna ga ik hem installeren. Ben het inmiddels wel zat van dat de INF bestand niet worden gevonden of dat de detectie systeem niet werkt!!!

Zijn er meer mensen met het zelfde probleem???
Graag reageren!!!

[Reactie gewijzigd door rolex op 6 maart 2008 18:46]

gewoon inf bestand van 8.2 in de 8.3 setup map gooien werkt ook niet? Zijn meestal nagenoeg gelijk.
Nee niks helpt. Kan nu niet eens 8.2 instralleren.
Ik word er sagerijnig van.

EDIT: 8-2_vista64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_58134.exe gedownloaden en de is geinstalleerd.
Afsluiten duurde ongeveer 15 minuten.

Hybrid Graphics Support. Voor degene die net als ik het moesten opzoeken ;)
Boosting Game Performance through ATI Hybrid CrossFire ATI Catalyst 8.3 also introduces ATI Hybrid Graphics support for Windows Vista, that allows combining discrete graphics cards and integrated solutions into a single graphics subsystem.
http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/video/display/20080304145453_ATI_CrossFireX_and_Hybrid_Graphics_Technologies_to_Be_Available_This_Week.html
Moed je op de install icoon met je Rechter muis drukken en dan in de menu die je krijgt op
Run as Adminstrator drukken, en dan moed het wel lukken.

Als het goed is doet hij het dan wel.
Weet iemand of deze ook de Radeon HD 2x00 AGP serie ondersteund?
Volgens mij is dat een kwestie van proberen en eventueel de inf file aanpassen. Het is nogal onduidelijk wat van die kaarten (HD2x00 en HD3x00 AGP) nu eigenlijk de status is. maar echt actieve ondersteuning van ATi hebben ze iig niet. Op de driver-site kan je ook alleen HD2x00 (PCIe) kiezen.
Ik heb hem geprobeerd, je moet idd nog steeds de inf files aanpassen, maar daarna lijkt hij goed te werken :) Alleen de ingebouwde geluidskaart krijg ik nog niet aan de praat, maar ik kan in ieder geval weer games spelen :)
Op welke manier heb je de INF files aangepast?
Ik heb eens op internet gezocht maar kan niet duidelijk vinden hoe en wat.
If your AGP card is not supported by the latest ATI drivers...
Sometimes the drivers don't get updated for every card for every driver release, so you need to edit a couple files to add
your card. Run the installer, and continue until you extract the driver into a folder under C:\ATI\SUPPORT\.
At the next opportunity, cancel the installation and navigate to the C:\ATI\SUPPORT\ folder in Windows Explorer.
Edit the files as follows, and you can then run C:\ATI\SUPPORT\{Current Version}\Driver\setup.exe.

The files you need to edit are:

C:\ATI\SUPPORT[Current Version]\Driver\Driver\XP_INF\CX_*****.inf

Under "[ATI.Mfg.NTx86]", add the following lines. You can do a search for "HD 2400" to put the lines with the other entries for the HD2000 series, if you wish.

"ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO AGP" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_94C4
"ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT AGP" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_94C6
"ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO AGP" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9587
"ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT AGP" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9586

The lines can be placed anywhere under the "[ATI.Mfg.NTx86]" section. For example, your entry could look as follows:

[ATI.Mfg.NTx86]
"ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO AGP" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_94C4
"ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT AGP" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_94C6
"ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO AGP" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9587
"ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT AGP" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9586


C:\ATI\SUPPORT[Current Version]\Driver\Driver\CX_*****.INI
C:\ATI\SUPPORT[Current Version]\Driver\Driver\INSTALL.INI

In both files, under the "[WINXP]" section, add the following at the end of the second line, which starts "R6=DriverPath_R6":

,0x94C4,0x94C6,0x9586,0x9587

For example, your entry could look as follows:

[WINXP]
Label=R6,R6_2,R6_3,R6_4,R6_5,R6_6,R6_7,R6_8,R6_9,R6_10
R6=DriverPath_R6,0x554F:0x149218BC,0x7162:0x3001147B,0x94C4,0x94C6,0x9586,0x9587
DriverPath_R6=\XP_INF,CX_52443.INF

Ik ben weer terug naar 8.2 gegaan. Ik had met 8.3 10500 3DMarks 06. Nu is het weer met 8.2 11700 3DMarks 06. Dit is met een HD3870 onder Windows XP Professional gedaan.

Ik heb met 8.3 de driver settings aangepast om meer eruit te krijgen, zonder effect. De 8.2 was op de juiste manier verwijderd (uninstaller, driversweeper) voordat 8.3 erop ging.

EDIT: Gisteren is ook een nieuwe bios van Sapphire uitgekomen. Deze heb ik nog niet gedownload. Misschien draait het dan wel beter met 8.3.

En vanwege 3dmark ga je terug? Dus je speelt geen spellen ofzo? Want een performanceboost voor spellen lijkt me wel handig, dan maakt me 3dmark niet uit
In de change log waren geen performanceboost voor spellen gemeld die ik op het ogenblik speel. COD4 liept zoals bij Mausje ook voor geen meter. Ook maak ik geen gebruik van 3 of 4 kaarten in crossfire, dus geen reden voor mij om bij 8.3 te blijven. if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Ben benieuwd, even installeren en uitproberen of deze daadwerkelijk sneller zijn en Crysis ook beter draaid met Crossfire
