Should the Official INF be modified or not ?

    Well, I got here something I've been cooking now for 3 days and I've been near every minute been testing system with 2 x HD5970x2 + NVIDIA card and I now got pretty good picture of what works in this system clean.

    I am building, atm, driver for you guys here based on new twice as fast generic through processing & D3D however the driver will be based on 2 sets. Where as 10.5a based set will process better on DX10-11 and 10.4a based set will process better on DirectX 9 (I will add both up in, asap). These will be builds v3.71_DX9 and v3.71_DX10-11 figured I should just give the versions a name since I cannot by any means process both DX levels as it is hardcoded to driver what can multi-thread by ATI Driver Team. :(

    These new will be both as experimental and I am going to be simply updating my extras to current v3.49 and upload it exactly as is back up (later as for now there's separated link for extras however this does not affect performance, but provides cleaner driver installations).


    @commonly

    Ok, finished uploading now.

    New v3.70 are up :cheers: for Single Monitor setups.. HERE

    Multiple Monitor setups has to wait until I get my research done a bit more. ~1 day thanks for patience.

    yep, this one is gonna be fast ;)

    I am only hoping the folder there now is not too mixing for people to use. Peons always expects 'run and go' even while it actually is exactly that it still looks a bit too much for 1 driver installation for some people I bet.

    I truly hate peons who doesn't wanna read like 10 lines of quick installation I've written with really good information, but I still consider this method better even
    if there would be 100 CMDs in the dir than packing all in 7-zip and say launch this.


    -edit-

    O and sorry about typos on "install-[readme].txt"-file.. Nothing serious, but just noticed while I pasted the Quick install instructions to First page here on forums that there are some typos there.

    -edit-

    O yeah, we btw, finally got out processing speed back thanks to 10.7 WHQL. it's actually top out on lower clocks now 2-3 FPS higher than highest I've ever seen.

    -UPDATE-

    Well, modded now the first page almost entire. Also added verified best DirectX 9 build as for moment for Eyefinity systems. However, those
    packages all has OLD extras. So, please anyone using them use only the 'genetix_<version>' path + v3.70 extras from below those packages before I can get the v3.71 for Eyefinity systems up and tested. :pc1::pc1::pc1:

    As for now it looks like this will take a day, but well it depends a bit on my personal inspiration. As I just finished the single display build and that was
    honestly quite a work and very very many steps as it now looks like we actually got some new grounds to module side from ATI and there is very
    many good issues fixed while as in ATI style they broke half the hell with it cladly this time features broken are very minor and those are not affecting any of primary GPU features like gaming in any sense.

    TwL, you're pretty amazing. Even if I didn't need these drivers, there's no denying that you have a great skill and talent for enhancing these drivers. You do good work for certain.

    As a side note, CatalystMaker posted a message online saying the hotfix is almost ready and that it should contain AA support for Starcraft 2. Is he referring to a 10.7 hotfix?

    We'll have to see what he works up. as last my check he went to 2 weeks vacation or something. So unless he plans to laptop the drivers from Greece sure.

    I'm gonna launch my ars off tho, if those are the hotfix drivers I have been hunting for past 3 days all over internet. as in mentioned here several times
    'where is the drivers based upon code branch of 10.5a'. I sure at least hope they are not that stupid that they would ignore this set completely.

    As for Starcraft 2 Anti-Aliasing I have to honestly do a check on that. I haven't yet get the game. So, gonna have to see until then, but I insist to
    believe the v3.70 will work with Starcraft with full AA. I see no reason it wouldn't work I mean.

    @ TwL, as of right now only Nvidia has support for Anti-Aliasing in Starcraft 2. People who have ATI cards were upset about that and so ATI has been working on adding AA in their own drivers for Starcraft 2.

    Here's the twitter post from CatalystMaker:

    http://twitter.com/CatalystMaker/statuses/19739897631

    Sounds like he is away but others are working on the hotfix driver.

    Well, I just checked and the title costs way too much for me for time being. So, gonna fix it blindly, if anyone can link me up to some demo or alpha or whatever would be nice.

    I got it for $35 US after some store credit. I was only mentioning Starcraft 2 because of the message from CatalystMaker. Hopefully the hotfix driver carries some improvements.

    EDIT: There is no demo or alpha, do you really need to have the game to fix the issue? I would just let ATI do the work for you, unless you don't think they can do it.

    Hey TwL

    I just downloaded your 3.70 drivers and i got this error while decompressing them

    gonna re-download the package to make sure it wasn't a corrupted download.

    @GaBBa-Gandalf

    nope those are old.. compared what I did use. :)

    checking on that error of yours.

    -edit-

    Nope, pack here extract just fine so on WinRAR as well as on 7-zip.. What link you used? and is the MD5 correct on the RAR?

    @For Victory

    Yeah, I know price isn't that much just for the moment can't afford anything. You know have to live on something too in 'real life'. :)

    as for no demo.. Well, I can let ATI fix the crap up check what people saying and use the information and build an fix, but no I do not trust anyone when it comes to fixing.
    Either I see thing X fixed or its not fixed I won't release something just based on a 'should be fixed' this way I keep on track
    on my builds and I know on instant when someone mention a game what could be wrong in the specific game engine.

    This drivers are a rocket!
    I only tested DiRT 2.
    Max FPS increased by 3-4 fps
    Min, increased by 2 fps.

    Awesome, just awesome!
    Also, it feels a lot more smooth :D

    Thank you!

    @ TwL,

    I agree with you, 60 dollars for a PC game stings even if you have the money. I don't blame you for not having great trust in ATI. Here's an idea, would it help you to fix the AA issue if you got a Starcraft 2 temporary guest pass?

    Zippyshare package extracts without any problems the mediafire one is corrupted.

    @ Cornell,

    I was wondering about which link you downloaded from. I always use Zippyshare so I didn't get the corrupt download, but I was also going to tell you that you could try to use Winrar to open it instead of 7z. Sometimes that makes the difference. Glad to hear you got it sorted.

    Are you using an old 7z version?
