AMD logo (60 pix) AMD heeft zojuist de vierde Catalyst-release van dit jaar voor zijn ATi Radeon-videokaarten uitgebracht, wat versienummer 8.4 heeft opgeleverd.

Met de HD2900XT @ Stock en E6850 en 2GB DDR800 CAS4 op DX9.0c in Crysis Benchmark Tool 1.05

Quality = Optimal Quality in CCC 3D settings
Performance = Optimal Performance in CCC 3D settings
3DMark06 standard = 1280x1024 NoAA en alle andere standard instellingen

http://members.home.nl/straighton.nl/resultsHD2900XT-8.4.jpg

In Crysis test ik wel alles maar op 1 cycle dus de werkelijke resultaten liggen waarschijnlijk wat hoger, door laad-lag.
Game on!

* Het lijk een flinke performance drop op 1280x1024 als CCC op optimal quality staat tov de vorige drivers, maar bij de fixes staat ook dat de CCC 3D instellingen nu gefixt zijn. Bij 8.3 had het veranderen van deze instellingen geen effect op de performance in de game.

Dus dat is opzich al een verbetering, en ook is er een kleine snelheidswinst te constateren en ook ziet het er beter gerenderd uit vind ik persoonlijk.

Wel loopt 8.4 iets schokkeriger dan 8.2 en 8.3 naar mijn mening, maar dat verschil is nauwelijks waarneembaar.

8.4 zijn toch weer lekkere drivers!
Hmmm de 8.2's doen het bij mij eigenlijk erg goed... denk dat ik deze maar even oversla of er moeten wel hele positieve benchmarks verschijnen :)
Ze zijn goed. De Cat 8.3 waren voor sommige XP gebruikers een ramp. Bij mij kwam de crossfire preformance niet ver boven 1 kaart uit. Nu werkt Crossfire weer gelukkig normaal.
FF een vraagje:

Er is voor deze 8.4 catalyst drivers een HOTFIX uitgebracht voor de AGP versie van veel ati kaarten. Deze hotfix zou er voor zorgen dat deze nieuwe catalystdrivers ook op een agp kaart konden draaien (de oude support voor agp stamt nog uit de 7.7 versie)

Maar: moet ik nu eerst de 8.4 catalyst drivers installeren en dan de hotfix eroverheen? of gewoon de hotfix alleen installeren (beide driverpacketten zijn ongeveer even groot) :?
Lol.... en wederom staat er niks bij over de OpenGL driver die ze kapot (http://www.driverheaven.n...ut-now-2.html#post1130773) hebben gemaakt sinds Cat 7.12, ik ga deze wel eens testen maar ik hoop er niet op, ik zal waarschijnlijk bij Cat 7.11 moeten blijven...

Mischien een tip..

Als je 8.4 installeerd ,copyeer dan de openGL van 7.11 over de openGL van 8.4 heen in Windows/system32 _/-\o_
werkt hier fantastische
Welk bestand is het precies? en waar zit ie?
(en hoe vis ik hem uit 7.11?) :P

want ik heb erg veel last van dit probleem (Ik gebruik heel veel blender3d, en dat is bijna alleen maar openGL... )
Filename c:\windows\system32\Atioglx2.dll

in 7.11 c:\windows\system32\Atioglx2.dll

gewoon van 7.11 over de versie 8.4 copyeeren (wel windows in veiligemodus opstarten anders kan je hem niet overschrijven)
Draai nu op deze, werken perfect, 8.3 was een ramp.
8.3 werkte bij mij beter dan 8.2. Ik kreeg een hogere 3DMark06. 8.4 ga ik overslaan omdat er voor mij niet echt belangrijke fixes tussenzitten.

Vista Home Prenium x64 met 3870X2 kaart.
Geinstalleerd , kan nog weinig beters ondekken aan 8.4 , Folding@home GPU2 client draaid er prima op met 2x GPU@ client op 2x een MSI RX3850.

Met games geen performance verbeterin of verslechtering ondekt, overig het lijk wel of 2D soepeler draaid op de Desktop van XP
Waar is de mobility versie? de 8.3 zijn er wel
Dit blijft toch wel de apartste issue onder Windows XP:


Known Issues Under the Windows XP Operating System
  • The floppy drive may fail to read or write under Vista on a Dell XPS410 system.
:z
ik denk dat dit meer een xp en vista probleem is, en niet aan de ati drivers ligt:
er is bekend dat dos-floppies corrupt raken door de ntfs-aansturing van Xp/vista, zodra een floppy gelezen wordt in verkenner.
Zat ik ook al raar naar te kijken. WTF kan dat nou zijn, een gpu driver die problemen geeft bij een XPS systeem zijn floppy drive

euh :s

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
