Dude, people are just simply pointing out that with such low end hardware, such as yours, an optimised driver can only do so much.
Remember your the one who posted this thread because of your poor BC2 performance, you should have expected people to look at your weak hardware aswell.
I'm glad you've found your miracle driver in 10.5a, with your hardware your'll need plenty more miracles in future.
Myself I find 10.6 runs best for me in BC2.
Oh as for your comments re i7 owners being intel sheep or not knowing the value of money....... Remember not everyone here is in the Ukraine, an i5 or i7 860 like mine is just a midrange/ very affordable processor. No more than a days work money wise.
Besides, us sheep may do other things with our quads (besides going "baaa.baaa") such as encoding, folding, mulittasking..... Things you can only do very slowly with your dated e8500.
Anyway enjoy your game glad you found the right driver!!
Slightly off topic, but i noticed a huge difference when a changed from two cores to four.
So you ask for help and have been given the answer and you simply shoot it down as if you know what your talking about. Why do people like you even ask for help if you wont take any advice given? What a waste of time.
No abuse plz man. Just stating my point. I hope that 10.7 will be miracle
Read once more the head of the topic. It may be helpful for you
Yes, I got that, good one man! </sarcasm>
Yet your title is a bit misleading isn't it, you asked when 10.7 official will be out and your post is more geared towards your performance issues in BC2. Why am I even bothering with you at this point? :bang:
Enjoy your ignorance!
*Sadly looks at the flooded above*
This is what happens when people tolerate ignorance. Stating the obvious, it would take less time for op to actually google "official ATi forum", then click on the very first link and be on his merry way... Instead, he goes to a very specific HW board and asks for something which is actually in every second thread in this section, then starts an offtop discussion trying to disprove the well-known and illustrated fact. It is way too unethical.
Guys, you forget that BC2 is a console port and can't deal properly with all that modern hardware in a gaming PC. For instance HD5870 is 10 times more powerful than Xbox 360 Xenos GPU. How bad ATI drivers must be to destroy that excessive power in a first place? It is all up to BC2 being a console game, running on a PC.
Huh? Where did you hear that a 5870 can't run BC2 well. And yes, it's a console port. That being said they didn't just port it over to PC and release it. You've been misinformed. Have you even seen a comparison of the 360 & PC side by side?
With my rig , i am getting avg 35 fps in bfdc2 and avg 25 fps in metro, yah i am very happy with this performence .. (high,10.5,1600x900,noAA,16AF,obiously dx11) ..
The PC version was developed parallel to the console versions I believe and features much higher quality graphics (on max settings) and resolutions than the 360 and PS3 builds. It has HBAO lighting for example. The console versions run at 1280x720 with no AA and a 30 fps framerate with intermittent screen tearing.
i would like to chime in. i would like a real answer to this discussion about dual core vs quads.
I have a E8600 overclocked to 4.2ghz i have a 5870 at 950 core and 1300 memory
Now everyone here will say of course you are getting a bottle neck because your cpu isn't powerful, therefore you will have a low graphics score because your cpu can't feed the graphics card fast enough.
Ok well thats all fair and all but when i look at my graphics score its the same, as quad people and i7 people. here are my scores.
for 3dmark vantage = 14808
gpu : 19794
3dmark06 = 20326
SM2.0 = 8953
HDR/SM3.0 Score = 11313
CPU = 3835
Now please look at the graphics score, i don't think my scores are being to hindered by my dual core my graphics score is where it should be even though i am running a low end cpu.
I know this is synthetic benchmarking, but in final fantasy 14 benchmark low i get 4800 and high i get 4, 600. try the benchmark and see how you do.
anyway, i am not trying to argue either point, its just that i feel i needed to overclock to 4.2 ghz in order to not cripple my card. at 3.3 ghz my graphics score was super low. So obviously i was bottle-necking it, but now i feel that it isn't bottle necked that much.
You mean they made PC version and turned rest of the code to asians to quick port so it barely works on Consoles so they can sell it. 'parallel' just today sounds so fancy, lol. c1:
(just kidding of course.)
any clue or info about 10.7 ??? are they changed from 10.6 base .dll tree and code philosophy..?? because 10.6 are the most hated and failed drivers nowadays...:3eyes:
Catalyst 10.7 on 21st July~
"We assume that the next Catalyst until just before the last week of July, from 21 July will be released."
well said. after reading this whole thread yours is the best post
As this thread turned into a dual v quad one, particulary in BC2 i thought i'd posted this in here (as well as in the BC2 thread)
I remembered seeing it when the game first came out and just found it again for that other thread......
Now a few things to point out.
1)It was done withe the beta, the full game got even more multithreaded perf with one of the first patches - so the difference will be even more striking now.
2) It was a proper CPU test, the bit-tech one wasn't...why ?
Since when have CPU tests ever been done at 1920x1080 max details ? never.
CPU tests are always done at low resolutions so as to isolate the gpu from the test, just like the one above is
BC2 is massively multi-threaded, its so much commom knowledge particulary amongst the players themselves its not even debateable.
Also I have just done some tests myself with HT on and off.
With HT on I get about 10-15 % perf increase and the game is much smoother.
According to CatalystMaker, he never said 21st, thats a false rumour
Thats probably with no AA on, or a low resolution
