History of this modified driver: Idea was never to perform good, but to get back what is not working and after 20-25 builds and over 10-15 Official AMD/ATI builds of drivers. We are still and will be looking on full functional driver ONLY. OpenGL, OpenCL with-in any setup working correctly. Difficulties on CrossFireX and setups like ATI+NVIDIA will be bypassed as they come around and build around the issues. All current and every future build will support these no matter even, if they make me build the slowest driver in earth. Spoiler To read and understand: Should you use 'Catalyst [Modified build]' in the first place: I do not believe that this topic is for newbies or unexperiences new users. I do believe that people who understands what they are doing or at least how to read should be the only people using my mods and further more I still build them to myself not for others, including support for other to use them in their specific systems is what you should consider an bonus. Paranoia Users: I will as said before separate the tweaking and cleaning to be user optional for next build. I will not separate build up of tweaks to user optional from our install system as it's here to stay and any paranoia user can read my installer through personally, if he/she wishes and understand it or not use my mods at all and use what ever you like, but don't come here to ask questions about it I am getting sick and tired of people stupidity when not utilizing what I have to offer and then trying to out smart the installer by installing 'something' from the package which is the most idiotic thing I can think of anyone doing. Do you have an options? Yes, you do: Official ATI/AMD Drivers Page, Back to Guru3D AMD - ATI Drivers Section Recent News: 06.06.2012: Updated latest changes to Clean-up v5.01 now including missing paths and verified new data against old data. NVIDIA Section will be gone soon (as there's a new setup not ignoring Batman Arkham Tweaks = stable version, Experimental version is going to be fully functional in PhysX just not in B:AC release). 27.07.2011: New modified driver is attempt to support <any> system. I know from the past that CFX/QFX systems this will be bad move, so, most likely we will see x86/x64/Desktop(single card) + <X>Fire x86/x64 drivers still separated as AMD has not been able to even fix the DirectX 9-11 currently and my honest guess is they are still struggling to get the CPU/GPU processors and hopefully basic processing unit network together + application engineers/developers to actually support their new crap. Sadly at current drivers we have this ain't gonna happen as no one seems to be interested of porting this. Hopefully also I can mod against the DX1x drivers and not these damn alpha/beta/preview/uber future AMD builds. 26.07.2011: New v4.90-5.00 cleaning system begins to be ready. Adding it as soon I've verified and tested it against laptops. 03.07.2011: Started working on 10.2->10.7 preview however there's still some problems on core driver at both 10.6a and 10.7 preview. I can first solutions from earlier drivers, but will build new build against 10.7 soon enough. 01.07.2011: Time is limited, but got hold on new testing equipment working on pretty tight schedule (7 day weeks), but there's some free time now and then, so, currently I am hoping to test the 10.6 hotfixes and build against 10.7 (WHQL). 17.03.2011: Still no word for testing equipment. Missing an decent CFX GPU for testing currently as only component. Beside that and few other probs in real life next build will be here around start of next month at earliest. It is been build never the less, but testing is 100 times slower on current hardware and so I will not even attempt to build. Older News Archives: Spoiler 23.01.2011: Genetix Cleaner v4.84 update: Improved the script further to process display data faster and to not hunt ghosts. Updated AMD Motherboard ignore some of files. So, clean-up is now has full support for AMD motherboards. Also ignoring now HDMI so HDMI is not cleaned during clean-up. *by my personal testing now and few testers helping out I truly hope v4.84* is 'the' number and clean-up won't have to be updated again ever. 22.01.2011: Genetix Cleaner v4.83b update: bug at jumping over installed content + process missing x86 entries. 22.01.2011: Genetix Cleaner v4.83 - Stand-Alone ATI/NVIDIA clean-up system is now alive and I do believe this is the last clean-up which will be build as it doesn't anylonger matter what AMD/ATI updates (if there's something I am sure to fix it). Current clean-up system can be even now used, if drivers are installed in matter of facts in any system condition. 21.01.2011: For people who has Flashed BIOS or updated GPU hardware without reinstalling windows. There is an possible bug of detecting 'ghost' hardware. Solution is provided at driver release notes. 20.01.2011: heck I just have to congrat AMD Driver team after 9 months of breaking OCL they have finally brought back functional OCL to 11.1 beta's. (Even while they did break OpenGL in the action, heh). 20.01.2011: Hmm, 2 bugs identified and dealt with. (still trying to locate the mobility OGL bug mentioned), but information can be read on release notes and included temporal NOTE to install instructions. Next build date is unknown, but it will no longer be 10.11 or 10.12 driver series. 20.01.2011: If there's a better use for a internet I haven't found it. 19.01.2011: New NVIDIA patch up also fixed basics on installer so only the installer cmd was updated to include better WISE installation clean-up (optional). 19.01.2011: Final Build v5.10 is up and I did some major testing on this one took me solid 10 hours to go through all equipment and installation methods and I almost completely fixed the batching and tweaking. 19.01.2011: Fixing sevral issues and adding build v5.09 online today. 18.01.2011: There was Critical issue with installer and clean-up batch files. Please, override the files before installation. 18.01.2011: Added NVIDIA v1.07 and v1.07-ocl builds for hybrid setups. Driver is different and monitoring data and OpenCL support. Select your own poison for now these are the best before I finish this NVIDIA developer driver OpenCL support for new. 17.01.2011: Goodbye signature checks. New system build against this concept. So, now we have full HD69xx support and also I scripted up RadeonPro fix for this hardware. Including minor hardware detection to installation. 17.01.2011: Driver release is growing so huge I have to split it for unique setup styles. As for currently: Mobility, AGP will be at own category and HD2xxx-6xxx on their own category. 17.02.2011: Updating recent bug fixes and new cleanup comes as WinRAR SFX requesting Administrative privileges. I could of done this now on CMD form, but using WinRAR SFX this guarantees 2 things first of that it's executing in 'temp'-folder which is writable and second that user has needed permissions to do clean-up. (You may still extract the EXE by right click with WinRAR -> Extract it's not locked by any means) Current Release Information, Changes Log: Under update... Instruction Colors: * New Unexperienced Users: Read and Understand All Colors at least ones. * Basic Users: Read only COLOR (Verify Bug + Critical notes) + COLOR * Later on Quick Install: Read the COLOR * Uber 1337s: You don't need colors: http://crux.nu/ AMD/ATI + NVIDIA - Removal Instructions: 1. Use regular uninstall methods (NVIDIA > ATI) NOTE: Make sure 'device manager' says 'Standard VGA Display Adapter' on all ATI and NVIDIA cards, if not: - remove driver & add check mark to 'Delete the Driver Software for this Device' -> 'scan for hardware changes' or on NVIDIA cards - 'scan for hardware changes' -> to find NVIDIA adapter before reboot (to avoid another reboot as otherwise it detects it after you've rebooted and you have to reboot again) (Do this so many times/long that it does says 'Standard VGA Display Adapter', if there's an WDDM 1.1 Microsoft driver continue to clean-up you cannot remove it by device manager) NOTE (PhysX): uninstall PhysX as ATI Catalyst also affects PhysX functionality / display setup also. 2. reboot as usual. OPTIONAL (Chipset UPDATE, if needed): People with INTEL Chipsets: Intel Chipset Software (proper update process) -> Official Website / Newest Drivers (NOTE: This website has popups, but drivers are always newer than at Intel because of Intel hides latest updates to specific chipsets) People with AMD Chipsets: AMD South Bridge Driver NOTE: AMD drivers and utilities are included with v5.00 build package. Detection if/when to use these might be incorrect as for now would still be recommended that you do your own updates. (Increases Stability of whole system to have properly installed and up-to-date chipset drivers before driver installation) DirectX: AMD/ATI: You should install DirectX Full Installation BEFORE actual driver installation OR use the webinstaller with the clean-up cmd I created to make sure that Microsoft newest DirectX patches/improvements could work better/at all before driver is in the system. AMD/ATI+NVIDIA: You wanna update DirectX also while full installation is done, after the 'fake' display for NVIDIA card is active as then DXDIAG will see correct GPU memory amount of all cards. NOTE: Check that there is NO 'C:\AMD' OR 'C:\ATI' folders existing. (AMD/ATI Official Install folders as these installers tends to check it seems). AMD/ATI - Install Instructions: NOTE (Critical): Batch files most be executed as TRUE administrator (and not on any safe mode). Instructions are given at above quote how to for OEM and bad situation systems at none administrative level users can do this. There are also situations on Windows where operating system itself bugs (like on latest RC SP1). NOTE (Bug) [v5.10 ONLY]: Please, install the packages from folder with no spaces (ex. c:\something) there's an registry passthrough error, if you already did run the install you can launch 'optimize\finalize_optimization.cmd' manually would solve the problem. NOTE (Bug) : Verify/Understand that there is no updated hardware bug mentioned at release notes. 1. Run 'genetix_cleanup.cmd' 2. Run 'genetix_install_silent.cmd' Alternatively: Run 'genetix_install.cmd' (this will display AMD Driver installation window. Just don't boot when asked by AMD driver installer.) 3. Reboot to finish the setup NOTE (ATI+NVIDIA): If you have an hybrid setup proceed to NVIDIA setup instead of rebooting. Spoiler NVIDIA [Hybrid Systems] - Install Instructions: 3. Run NVIDIA + PhysX Installations before rebooting. ('genetix_nvinstall.cmd' from v1.08 is recommended which will require the NVIDIA Expansion pack v1.07) 4. To enable ATI + NVIDIA OpenCL do following at this SlideShow: 5. Reboot to finish the setup NOTE: You might still need to reset or modify any direction NVIDIA overclocking from monitoring applications as this activated the 'nvapi' better/faster. NVIDIA - Driver Versions: Slideshow is only applicable to NVIDIA driver versions 25x.xx and below noting that 19x.xx driver versions needs PhysX Mod 1.03 before restart + PhysX Mod 1.04ff after new PhysX installation installed after actual display driver has been installed separately. At new NVIDIA 26x.xx this display setup does not apply and OCL/DC device is activated even without display being attached, however this is unfunctional as of yet because of buggy new nvidia display syncronize module. Cross-/Tri-/QuadFireX - EyeFinity + NVIDIA: Under Cross-/Tri-/QuadfireX systems and Multi-monitor environments you really wanna create linking and generally finish installing ATI Side BEFORE you turn up NVIDIA driver & it's monitor. Otherwise you will be in switch situation where NVIDIA monitor will keep switching as 'Display 1' and that is a situation you can only get rid of by disabling & removing NVIDIA monitor and then reboot and do the whole monitor setup again. ----Download Links---- Official ATI/AMD Website newest drivers: ATI Driver Download Section Experimental Build v5.15 - 12.6a baseline - [HD2xxx-6xxx Single Card Setups + NVIDIA Hybrid configs] - [12.06.2012]: * Really little testing done at this build.
