    Don't it say that there is something wrong with your pc if you can only use year or as you said in an earlier post 1 1/2 years drivers and majority of people have no problems can use subsequent drivers.
    Ive a 5850 and have no problems with any drivers. Im that happy with the card im gonna wait till next year to update.
    So check your hardware before you start bleating that people are disrespecting you, you idiot.

    Does AMD have a page where it explains all the 3D CCC settings? if not their should be I don't know what half of them do we shouldn't have to search other sites for explainations when it's their card and drivers were using:3eyes:

    Hmm...So I'm on a completely new installation of Windows (a day old), I installed the 11.8 drivers last night, games were fine, I deicded to revert back to 11.7 for certain reasons (unimportant here) and when I was uninstalling ATI drivers, the system got a BSOD, file culript was atikmpag.sys. I want to point out I've not used driver sweeper, or any other cleaning utility/registry cleaner. I've not mucked around with anything and have been completely safe. Sigh, ATI...Sometimes... :mad:



    2nd try: Uninstall was a success, however I noticed this time it didn't uninstall as many things because it already uninstalled a few things last time. Infact, the resolution didn't change this time so I'm not sure...Anyway whatever.

    Not really while playing games

    my problem with ati is i have to persist in using a january 26th release of 11.1a because i play cod bo

    with every driver since then and i mean every set i get first kill or gun fire lag on the game i play 90% of the time and it makes the way i play this game unplayable , alot of my friends have the same problem , where as my nvidia friends only have the sound bug which causes gun fire lag but that can be sorted , not with any other driver than 11.1a with my setup

    i bought my 6870 day of release and thought i would see gradual increases in performance and i dont see any , i am happy with it and every other game plays fine apart from bo , what is different with every driver since 11.1a which causes bo to do this , i wish i knew :bang:

    ROFL a lot of what's been said in here would make it into the Guru3d vault of fail just for being so utterly stupid

    the only thing I have a problem with is when AMD frig with opengl sometimes quake 3 will work flawlessly sometimes it just wont even display on screen (starts to an black screen) but other than that it's really been a good driver so far

    Performancewise this is one of the best driver I've ever installed but I observed 2 problems,

    1.GPU Caps Viewer opencl gpu Julia demo sometimes locks up my system
    2.windows experience index does not complete because pc goes into "driver stop responding/recovered" loop while executing gpu tests

    both of which have never occured with 11.7

    but these problems are minor so I'll probably stick to this driver.
    Despite release note warnings, both stalker cop and f12010 works well for me.

    Ever since I installed the Cat 11.8, my screen gets really dark while playing Left 4 Dead 2. Doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it's a nusents. Lasts about 5 to 10 minutes, then goes back to normal. While it's dark, you have to strain just to see if a zombie is coming at you.

    Also I have the Phenom II 940 Black Edition, and the CPU Overdrive tool within these drivers are locked, I cannot unlock them.

    I play BO every day since the game launch and never see this problem reported by you . I used all drivers since the game launch. You tried to reinstall the Windows??

    The random stuttering is really "normal", is a bug. But this constant freezing hindering the gameplay, I never see something like that. Your PC is like mine, damn mysteries of computing. :nerd:

    PS: Your PC have onboard sound? Perhaps the old Audigy 2 is the problem. Try using onboard sound.
    Since Windows Vista, my Audigy2 does not work correctly. When I migrated to onboard sound, the problems solved.

    yes i know about the sound bug , using 16 bit 48000hz solves the gun fire lag . i have used both my audigy and onboard , and with 11.1a all is good perfect gameplay , again any other drivers after that the lag is there , very subtle but when u play rusher 99% of the time and reactions count any lag at all is not acceptable hence why i persist with 11.1a

    so put atiumdag.dll from 11.1a in the game folder & see if you can play with new drivers without a problem now


    most of it is standard stuff found in every gfx card & a lot of games, & i'm hovering over the tooltips now & only the AF or mipmap tooltips are poorly worded (they should put the preview image/animation back)

    of course i dont see all the new sliders & buttons, what's left that needs explaining?

    The darkness isn't related to 11.8, I also had that problem every once in a while with older drivers. It usually happens after you get pounced/grabbed/pulled/whatever or when you die as an infected.
