    Hey everyone. New to the board and this thread is awesome! I have a HD 3870 card. I've followed the steps and got the FirePro 8.6xx drivers to work perfectly so the computer sees it as a v7700 and I got the performance boost in 3ds Max. The problem I'm running into now is that I have XP64 and I want to use 8.7xx drivers because it has a better OpenGL version than 8.6xx and before. Can someone please post the script for 8.7xx drivers for v7700 on XP64? maybe I'm not seeing it but I've looked all over this board and can't find that exact combination.

    Thanks!

    I finally succees to convert HD4890 to v8700 and all works ok but specview gives me strange results. Graphic benchmark on v8700 is a lot faster than the standard HD4890 , but the final results are not as i expected. Resolution is 1920x1080.

    EDIT:

    Maybe not so much difference. It seems that the ViewPref 11 has less value than the ViewPref 10. Look at this link: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/quadro-5000-firepro-v8800-workstation-graphics,review-31984-11.html

    I'll try to download version 10 and make another benchmark.

    I looked through that thread as well with no luck.

    However, I was able to piece together enough information from all the threads to make my own.

    Here's the script code I made that I got to work:

    [Common]
    SrcFile = ati2mtag.sys
    BakFile = ati2mtag.old
    HlpFile = no_help_file.rth
    MakeCRC = 1
    Packed = 1

    ;script for FireGL driver 8.723 _ win xp_x64

    DstVar0 = force ATI FireGL V7700 capabilities

    Src0 = E8 46 57 00 00 85 C0 74 32 33 C0 EB 45 44 0F B7 C0
    SCM0 = FF 00 00 FF FF FF FF 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF
    Dst0 = E8 46 57 00 00 85 C0 74 32 33 C0 EB 40 44 0F B7 C0
    DCM0 = 00 FF FF 00 00 00 00 FF FF 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00


    Src1 = 83 F8 40 75 09 66 81 7C 24 30 02 10 74
    SCM1 = FF FF FF FF 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF
    Dst1_0 = 66 c7 44 24 32 11 95 0F B7 54 24 32 EB

    I have two HD 3870s in the computer I did this on but the FireGL drivers don't allow crossfire so only one of them is recognized as a v7700 and the other card is inactive. The irony is that the performance in the 3D Studio Max viewports is about the same between one v7700 and two HD 3870s in crossfire. So in the end, performance is a wash but the computer draws much less wattage to do the same job. ...and getting FireGL drivers to work is way cool.

    Crossfire Pro worked for me, but only with older driver (I think 8.634), you have to install Catalyst Control Center and enable the option.. If there is no option in CCC then it doesn't work..

    P.S. tired of hearing the same questions everytime.. We should make a FAQ to get rid of this.. (maybe I will do this if I have time..)

    Hey schoko I'm posting just to thank you for your modified atiogl.xml because it made a huge difference with my rig (see my profile)! Having just tested the maycarbench scene I got 7.4 fps textured, 8.6 fps shaded and 110 fps textured while before I got 4.4, 4.6, 32!!! That's what I call a HUGE difference!!! Thanks a lot!!!

    The info I am seeing on the AMD site is that it's just the v7700 cards can't be crossfired even though the HD 3870 counterparts can.

    Another issue I'm having though. Anyone else having problems installing FireGL/Pro Catalyst Control Center for 8.7xx drivers and newer? I tried to install it but it didn't work. And no option to install it in the custom install either. It's missing from the list. So right now I'm using the 8.723 drivers with the 8.634 CCC.

    4870x2 win 7

    I have a 4870x2 and windows 7, I've noticed that there is no script or I could not find script for 8700 DUO in windows 7, I would like if they could lend me some help, I tried using the 8700 and got my Device Manager says pro v8700 ati fire and working properly but the resolution only have 800x600 my screen
    :S. CPU-Z says I have the 4870x2, gpu-z says I have ati 8700 pro fire.
    riva tuner says 4870x2 and no supported drivers detected for this displayed drivers :S.
    Help :S



    I used the FireGL V8700 drivers for 8.723 win7x64 and has worked appearing 2 FireGL v8700.
    Im using this script :


    maybe you have this problem maxpoz

    The problem was that Dseo13b was not configured properly, i have to sign atikmdag.sys (system32), we must also atikmpag.sys(system32) sign for the drivers to work properly.

    I tried also with only 4870

    Almost no improvement



    Problem for this drivers youtube not found correctely , youtube shows a green screen and the solution is to disable hardware acceleration but it gets a little slow and it looks worse in my opinion: S. Any solution?? (For now install adobe flash player 9 active x for internet explorer , google chorme no has solution :S)

    For now Crossfire is more slow that a single card :S, I do not know what the reason, :S:S:S need help thanks :bang:.

    I have been doing test, I put the links for the post not too long

    thank you very much

    this is because dseo signed driver will load only if you're under test mode...see dseo warning after enabling test mode!

    Maxpoz you need activate enable test mode with dseo13b and rebot pc,

    while pc rebot press f8 and choose disable driver signature enforcement, (you now must sign the drivers,)

    open dseo13b and choose "sign a system file" and now you must sign atikmpag.sys(in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\atikmpag.sys) and sign atikmdag.sys (in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\atikmdag.sys).

    Reboot normaly and its done

    cadcat was you tried double 4870 ? what is yours results vs one 4870 ?

    btw I did it with one 4890@8700 it is work and the results are better about 15-20% over 4850@v8700 :)

    I returned to the 4870x2 drivers because there are bugs in Maya as exaggerated slow-down in modeling. : S: S: S
    sniff sniff :bang: :bang:

    In 4870 this bug not exist :S :S

    Nvidia like a AMD are not support more than one GPU in proff. application's rendering yet :(

    and up to FirePro-driver_8.773 Radeon_3850 (my) successfully patched,

    it's my compilation from this forum patch's_text:

    [Common]
    SrcFile = atikmdag.sys
    BakFile = atikmdag.original
    MakeCRC = 1
    Packed = 1


    ; script for win7_x64 driver 8.723 & 8.773

    DstVar0 = force ATI Firepro V5700 (Radeon4670new_var?) capabilities
    DstVar1 = force ATI FireGL V7700 (Radeon3850)capabilities
    DstVar2 = force ATI Firepro V5800 (Radeon5770) capabilities
    DstVar3 = force FirePro V8700 (Radeon4850) capabilities

    Src0 = B8 94 00 00 00 E8 8A 65 00 00 3B C5 74 46
    SCM0 = FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF 00
    Dst0 = B8 94 00 00 00 E8 8A 65 00 00 3B C5 EB 46
    DCM0 = 00 00 00 00 00 00 FF FF 00 00 00 00 00 FF

    Src1 = B1 46 38 0B 75 B4 48
    Dst1 = B1 46 88 0B 90 90 48

    Src2 = BA 2E 00 00 00 48 8B CB E8 36 D0 FF FF 85 C0 0F 84 88 00 00 00
    SCM2 = FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF
    Dst2_0 = BA 2E 00 00 00 48 8B CB E8 36 D0 FF FF C7 03 9E 94 00 00 90 90
    Dst2_1 = BA 2E 00 00 00 48 8B CB E8 36 D0 FF FF C7 03 11 95 00 00 90 90
    Dst2_2 = BA 2E 00 00 00 48 8B CB E8 36 D0 FF FF C7 03 A9 68 00 00 90 90

    and Radeon3850@FireGL7700 has good improve both in 3DSmax2010_proff_D3D_driver and in SPECviewperf11

    I not has Radeon4850/4870 and not able to test script, but he was copy/pasted from this forum.

    A string about ATI Firepro V5800 (Radeon5770) was find at forum also. Why dev_id was 68 B8 instead of 68 A9 I don't know. not any guaranty:pc1:

    Also instruction for step-by-step patching i wrote here:

    @nowcry

    do you have the option to enable crossfire pro in catalyst control center with 8.723 driver? I guess not, thats why it doesn't work and you get no improvement..

    @adamath

    I tested crossfire pro with HD4870 in combination with HD4890 and it worked, in CATIA I got big performance improvement (tested with own benchmark, not ViewPerf..)

    Again it is important that you have the option to enable in CCC otherwise it won't work..

    Try 8.634 driver..

    @Sergyg

    Is this a new script? You modified it on your own? Will test it..
