since they are older ... are better than the 8.97 one?
I saw them since yesterday and I see them now...
Saints Row The Third runs great here, no issues at all.
On 12.3 my GPU stucked at 3D mode and for 12.4 it stucked on IDLE mode.. i can guess which mode it will stuck for 12.5.
With february 24th drivers I get 100+ fps in BF3 @ 1080p (without Vsync, motion blur or AA, everything else on ultra, textures on high) in almost any map ... lowest fps I get is 70. for the sake of smoothness and lower temps and power consumption, I use Vsync, though.
I still don't want to go above 12.3 drivers as they are rubbish.
I want to hear more feedback from someone using 6000 series CF
so, for now 8.95.5 drivers for me
you need to download a .DLL...
The correct name of the .dll is "atipdlxx.dll". If you want, use mine, I uploaded the dll from 12.1 WHQL. http://www.mediafire.com/?eof9egy3374ytk2
Just copy it to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and Clocks should work again. I needed to do this for Trixx and Afterburner, they would not get my default clocks otherwise. After copying the dll it worked.
This solved my problem.
well for me install goes black i reboot and install again it goes w/o problems O_O
Thanks ya it figures......damn you AMD they should have just told us this and I wouldn't have wasted 2 months trying to fix ****!
Now I'll will try and return as many cards as possible or wait till 12.5.
What card are you using ? .. I remember have got this, reinstall windows and was perfect then, i suspect something with my registry was broken somewhere.
It is very rare, I'm seeing in Google Chrome's 12.3, and the Internet Explores the 12.4
I do not understand
the cherry of this thread :banana:
I do, Chrome uses your internet cache instead of reloading a new page.
Try to reload the page with Ctrl + F5.
oh wow.. i'll try that next time. thank you very much. :nerd:
No problem. It seems that any AMD driver above 12.1 haven't got this crucial file for the video driver to detect correct clocks from VGA bios... so they get stuck at 3D or idle clock all the time...
Hope it helps.
No fix for trifire eyefinity. Currently using 11.12 as it's the only stable driver for my setup that allows me to launch games at 5760x1200 :S
I just ran Skyrim yesterday for a few hours and I'm playing Ultra settings. Initially with the 12.4, I had fps between 20 and 30. Then I went into the CCC and put everything on application. now it pretty much runs 60fps everywhere. Sometimes when I turn it will dip to 50fps but only for like a split second.
Read this and your questions will be answered.
Actually I just booted my game and I was also getting low fps and when I alt tabbed into CCC and tabbed back the clocks kicked in and I got full fps after that. From 12.3WHQL to 12.4 I saw about a 3-4fps boost. (1920x1080/Whiterun/Ultra presets)
My routine check list with every new Catalyst :
- 2D/3D clock bug with the 2nd GPU: check
- Catalyst Control Center slow startup and randomly crashing : check
- Random green screen when playing Flash content in web browsers : check
- Latest AMD APP (a.k.a AVIVO) isn't compatible with GPGPU transcoding software : check
- Choppy WMV-HD video playback with Windows Media Player : check
But I have to say that I am having less BSODs with these, so don't say I am not trying to be positive about this new release of Catalyst drivers ...
that is crazy if true, I mean how can they be that stupid? I've been having major problems with the clocks not returning to idle after exiting games!
