Shame your gona lose that boost though, and a lot more next week, when the Dx11 patches are out
it disabled Crossfire
Ok i m getting exactly the same fail with you ,can you tell exactly (step by step) how to fix it?
i cant find this file you are talking about to my computer and i dont know where to find these options you say so to see everything that is in my folder
Please answer i am looking all over google for something like 4 days without find anything!
After some (my PC's) wierd issue of windows boot freeze after installation of CAT 11.6 and 11.6 CAP1, first impression of performance is good .....!
getting additional 10 FPS at witcher 2, in the prologue area right after you exit from Triss's tent in the beginning. (when compared against the CAT 11.5 without any CAP's, which I used to play)
I have yet to play the game, gonna do it after sleep!.
I always use Dxtory with witcher 2 to limit FPS to 59, and D3Doverrider to force Vysnc+Triple Buffering from outside the game.
Having serious graphic artifact with 1.6 W7x64 in Photoshop CS4 64bit
looks like all the GPU previous functions are affected
games run perfect though....
(1.4 all was fine)
Just a quick question out of curiousity...
In the inf file for the drivers, and this goes for the previous drivers and the different chipsets, what does this line do:
The figure is either 128 or 256 for the different card series, just wondering why its 256, as obviously the card has more than that... what affect would setting this to 2048 (for 2GB video RAM) have and reinstalling the drivers?
Just tried that, changing to 1024. Driver didn't install.
Yeah its kind of a curious setting, are you on Windows Xp/Vista/7 32 bit/x64?
I think that setting is for integrated graphic cards only. It defines how much ram is shared between system and graphics.
I fixed my DiRT3 issue by going into the Hardware settings config XML file and setting the force DX9 parameter to 'Ture'.
You can find this file in My Document > My Games > Dirt3 > Hardware Setting> XML file is in here.
Edit with notepad or other text editor and give it a bash.
Fixed my problems in both Dirt3 and F1 2010.
Hope this helps?
for me this is the worst driver ever as I can not use it... never had any problem like this... tried to install it with complete package, separate component display driver only but no go... the PC goes in reboot loop or does not install correctly so I am back to 11.5... instead of playing games lost the whole sunday afternoon to return the PC back in working mode
To everyone that claimed FPS boost using 11.6:
Could someone please make a screenshot (png or some non-lossy compression format) comparison regarding image quality vs older drivers?
Gaining the some claimed FPS boost always makes me wonder or they sacrificed something on the IQ department.
I don't have time to this myself. Very much appreciated if anyone could do this and report back.
forcing dx9 kills my fps though....do you get the same problem?
didn't noticed any improvement in the games i play, especially The Witcher 2, though my hd5650 mobile doesn't really have the horse power to run the game fluid, so i can't expect some miracle from an ATI driver (never had and never will)..rest of my games run great and stable, the mouse lag in the right corner is still present.
Just run Heaven DX11 with everything maxed out, and getting BSOD, with atikmpag.sys as the problem, and other hanging at 99% and not coming down... funny thing is temps lower to idle temps, but usage is still 99%. After that BSOD attacks :/
Any quick ideas where to go from here?
For all you guys having BSOD , please if you can report your problem here on the 11.6 BSOD tread it will be appretiate it , the more info we gather , the better for the AMD Driver Team to come up with the fix. Thank you.

It's naught to do with how much ram your video card has but rather what width the memory bus runs at
Ah ok, that makes more sense
All those with BSODS and issues with 11.6's try the 11.7 'preview' linked to in anothet thread:
This resolved my BSOD problem and it, so far, seems to be working better than even the 11.5b's did. I highly recommend it! AMD inadvertently added the BSOD issue with 11.6, and aren't sure where in the driver it is, but they must have inadvertently resolved it with these, as the date is before they started looking in to the issue but the driver versions are later than 11.6!
Driver Packaging Version
11.6 --> 8.861-110624a-119606C-ATI
11.7 --> 8.871-110619a-121104E
2D Driver Version
11.6 --> 8.01.01.1162
11.7 --> 8.01.01.1171
11.6 --> 7.14.10.0841
11.7 --> 7.14.10.0847
11.6 --> 18.104.22.16834
