ok ok. What did they break this time?
12.4 beta broke my 6650m clocks
I don't know about SMAA, but BF's FXAA ain't much more blurry than MLAA? Look at the trees on BF3... FXAA on High it does them look like a compact mass... while MLAA is much cleaner.
About Adaptive-MSAA, indeed, I'll just use just MSAA with MLAA.
Disable all "enableulps" !!!
Do these drivers have high idle clocks bug with crossfire just as 12.3WHQL (and maybe 12.4beta from what I hear) had?
If they do, I'm not going to bother and stay with 12.2beta drivers.
done, as well as TdrLevel = 0
They break my computer entirely. I can't run anything 3D without it hardcrashing. Weird, as the betas are beautiful.
Ran like crap at first..
Had a lot of difficulty getting these drivers working out. Took three tries to uninstall and reinstall with driver cleaner and sweeper. Each time my fps sucked. Like really slow. Had left over cap profiles in the uninstall section of windows and they even put up a fight with uninstalling. Noticed BSOD sometimes unistalling old caps and conflict with the AMD ATI installer and Logitech Gamecenter keyboard software.
Weird thing is that even after doing a driver cleaner or sweeper run (tried both apps) my eyefinity setup was just like before where in the past I use to have to start over and setup my screens again. So Driver sweeper/cleaner is failing to remove a part of the driver. Anyhow finally on the 4th try my games played smooth like they use to as before gpu utilization was like all over the place. And about Skyrim seems a little smoother but my third gpu in crossfire is still MIA most of the time.
Can't wait for GTX680s one of these days. Feels like ATI doesn't vet their drivers half the time..
these drivers are broken, just like the beta. AMD broke it so badly.
When I switch to my dgpu, dgpu can't detect a game that is running, so it won't ramp up the clock. It's stuck in 100/150mhz.
The only way I can force the clock to 3d mode is to visit youtube and watch a flash video to trigger hardware acceleration. THEN the dgpu will ramp up to 600/900.
and once I finish all 3d stuff, the clocks remain stuck at 600/900 during idle.
For some reason, 2d mode runs really laggy on the desktop, even running at 600/900. dragging windows isn't smooth like the igp. Right click desktop has lag and behaves like there is memory leakage.
In contrast, Catalyst 12.1 running on dgpu dynamically clocks down to 100/150 in 2d mode, and desktop performance is smooth.
Loaded up Driver San Francisco with cat 12.4 , and it stutters.
AIKA online's performance is way up in XP. I can literally set 24x AA, with supersampling and there's only a tiny performance hit, much less than any of the previous leaked XP drivers. Very impressive performance boost.
Edge Detect BSOD bugs seem to be fixed. Although I can't even tell if EDAA is working or not. CS:S/Aika Online doesn't BSOD anymore. Haven't tested if Summoner crashes or not, or if the flickering in Sacred 2 FA/I&B is fixed. CS:Source's performance seems to be up (no more 30 fps in smoke with 24x AA And supersampling).
x1 link speed PCIE bug is fixed completely (glad those trolls who claimed it never existed
For W7, I'm using the 12.5 beta, FWIW (too busy playing League of Legends to test other stuff).
Just played BF3 no caps installed, no flickering that i can see on any map, runs decent and stable.
I found a pretty serious bug in Crysiss 2 with these-you crash when you go to customizing your weapon-when I switched back to the 12.4 betas, the crash went away. Also, I have 7970 crossfire
why would you make tdr delay = 0? that would increase crashes IMO
This is the first set of drivers since 11.11 where you can install just the drivers via device mgr and not generate errors running WEI. So i'm happy.
They fixed my HDMI and pc speakers audio switching problem when I switched between the TV and PC monitor. It was driving me insane in the 12.3 drivers. Do note, this is only with the HD7870 that I upgraded to. Have not had issues with my old HD4850.
So far I'm pretty happy =]
with Tri fire and eyefinity these are no good still get BSOD with any DX11 game I try.
Hmm 12.3 WHQL and earlier I usually get 50-55fps on top of Whiterun on Skyrim but with 12.4/betas I've been getting 35-40fps on the same spot, odd... anyone have similar symptoms? 6xxx cards, 7970 tested fine (1920x1080 Ultra preset)
i still see it like 12.3whql, but i've never had a problem launching a dx9 game & quitting to fix it, just like when this bug appeared 2yrs ago
i guess some newer cards dont have a workaround this easy? i launch guildwars or geometrywars & gpu2 goes back to idle when they exit c1:
(my ULPS is off)
Yeah that sucks mate, not a IOH issue?
Sorry i suck with acron's what is IOH?
I had that issue with 12.3, seems to be sorted in 12.4
tell them your bugs- http://www.amdsurveys.com/se.ashx?s=5A1E27D27E29B0E3
i can't believe they made this worse than 12.1
