    Well Crysis did a hard freeze where you can't do anything (Caps Lock won't change) and I had to do a hard reset. TF2 and FO3 both had a display driver has stopped responding and crashed to desktop.

    I noticed that Crossfire isn't enabled and I'm trying to figure that out also. No my old NVIDIA card was not crashing.

    I put my jumpers on my T-Power i45 to CF configuration and I put the CF connectors on the cards. I couldn't find any BIOS settings to enable or disable CF and I can't find any in CCC to do the same.

    Around 8.5 (maybe the earlier 8 series, can't recall atm) there were issues with AGP cards, making it necessary to keep older drivers for the more popular ATI cards like the 9800 and x800 series.

    What's the status on older AGP cards and the new drivers?



    Thanks for any tips. :)

    In my case, i'm stucked with 8.10 + Hotfix, because these only drivers fix color settings bug. My desktop contrast level stays correct in all conditions. Hope catalyst 9.1 won't disappoint me!!!

    ok i had a quick read thru and noticed a lot about 8.12 and 4850 and 4870. but i cannot get the 8.12 driver to work on my rig, nor on my roommates. he has a 3870x2 on an intel build asus p5e mobo and a QX6850.. we both had the exact same problem our crossfire stopped working. performance literally halved for both of us in every crossfire game. and for myself in older games like CSS i was getting less with both cards then i was with one.

    i'm going to keep a close eye to this thread for 9.1 to see if it fixes anything.

    i also hope catalyst catcher reads this and can tell me if my house is 8.12 alergic or if this happens to a lot of crossfire situations, not just the 4850's.

    fyi room mate has 3870x2 not pair of 3870's, and i still have a pair of old 2900xt's. i am overclocked to 3.1GHz cpu, room mate is at 3.8GHz cpu. i hope hope hope that this driver problem isnt linked to overclocking because that will not work for me.

    How about making a "Desktop" profile with correct colorsettings that you can enable when exiting games from the traymenu?? There is one game that resets my colors at exit as it did on my former Nvidia GTX280 card, but a simple profile remedys this... Annoying, yes, but I won't miss out on some serious performance enhancments and fixes just becauce of this.. Give it a shot...

    Fresh Vista 64 SP1 install... I downloaded the hotfix from ATI site and had tons of usbport.sys BSoDs in F.E.A.R. 2 demo... Reverted back to the official 8.12 release and everything is normal. :bang:

    1) do i have to uninstall the 8.12 WHQL to install these?
    2) is it needed for single gpu solutions?

    As I mentioned, fresh install. Meaning I just installed the hotfix right away and nothing else. I installed the 8.12 driver - which is stable - only after the hotfix gave me tons of BSoDs :(

    And I dunno bout multi gpu solutions. Never had one. But the hotfix should be for everyone according to what I read.

    I found this, goggling around. I am not convinced to install de hotfix (my machine is running ok with 8.12).
    I just thought it might be interesting to post it.

    Obviously, I do not know this people and their conclusions are , theirs.

    Hope it adds some value to this thread.

    Thats the same hotfix that was released weeks ago. You people need to pay attention to the threads you are posting to! How many times are we going to paste another link to the same hotfix? WTH is the matter with you all?

    The thread was posted on the day the hotfix was released?!? There has been two. This one enables multi threaded drivers in DX10. WTH is the matter with you?

    besides the bug that fixes the CrossfireX issue, the boost in performace is only for DX10 (no DX10 in XP).
    I do not know if there is some other difference with XP.
