4870X2 powerplay bug on 2nd core returns :bang:
Yeah, that's what I do as well. I also remove the ATI directory if I spot it.
Taken from release noted pdf
Catalyst™ 9.2 brings performance benefits in several cases where framerates are
CPU-limited. Some measured examples are:
• Crysis DX10 gains up to 20%
• Crysis Warhead DX10 gains up to 20%
• World in Conflict gains up to 5%
meh i still had the desktop mouse cursor see through when i started burnout.
Anyone elses 4870X2 seem to be running a bit hotter than before?
load up a fullscreen 3d app and exit and 2nd core returns to 2d clocks
Hehehe nop, i have a legal copy and i do get code 43 error.
gpu #2 is in 3d mode when windows loads, gotta start/close a 3d app to get 2d clocks back...this problem started for me w/9.1
My clocks are at 2d, 507 core 500 memory(or so CCC claims), no 3d app has been loaded. When I said hot I should have specified... only about 7-8C higher. Nevertheless I loaded up COD4 and ill see if the temp drops.
E/ Seems to have worked, temps are dropping. *sigh*
This is not fun anymore for me , im back to green on my GTX 285 , now i need 1 more for SLI goodness. Bye ATI and bad driver support :rpg:
That time is getting close for me.
great driver from ati as usual,i am still happy from day 1 until now,never had a single issue and its hard for ati to solve a problem when its not all its user suffer the same faith.
i have a friend and is video card only crashes when he overclocks his physical memory(rams) so sometimes its other things causing the probs.
when i had my 8800gtx sc i found it impossible to use vista as my main OS cuz i would get bsod,freeze games and driver crashes,with this 4870 1gb i didn't even install xp any more(thanks ati) and for the rcord this is my first ati card and i'm not a fan of either and some people want too much from a driver.
do these have the multi core support than the 8.12 HF had?
By the release notes, yes.
and still this driver DOES NOT FIX THE GPU SCALING IMAGE CENTER ONLY BUG, that's frustrating.
well they're not supposed to be for windows 7
there's no scaling probs in vista
FWIW the "official" win7 preview drivers scale the game image to full screen
Working fine for me these, in both XP 32bit and Win 7 beta 64bit.
Just wait for 9.3.......the windows 7 driver is suppose to be updated with 9.3 (when it comes out of course), which should hopefully fix the scaling bug.
It worked with every driver up to 9.1, and how do u know that 9.3 will come to 7?
