Same here, i'll wait for the final release.
i think its the 8.12 drivers but no stream.
When will the final version be out ?
In about 5-6 days, depending on what time-zone the 10th is in.
so I will be waiting, I am sure that by the end of next week, we all be much smarter
I have one monitor and 2 4850's i get the same vga error message tried restarting tried complete fresh installs but still get the same thing, i hope it isnt released like this uke2:
Haven't had the time to fully test these drivers.
But the 2D/3D bug is FINALLY fixed!
This is the first driver since i have this X2 card that actually seems to work as it should!
Using X64 vista
Try to install catalyst 8.10/8.11 first, restart, uninstall the drivers, restart and then install the 8.12 drivers.
Dont use drive sweap or anything to remove from the registry.
I had to do this :S
At first, I got the impression that Avivo Converter did not use the GPU because all the time, GPU load was at 0%. But in some tests i.e converting a mpg file in a very low compressed MPEG-4 one, I see the GPU load taking discontinuously the value 0 and 25. I don't know whether the process is faster since I'm not used to transcode file on my computer. But it seems that ATI STREAM is active. Maybe if I had a pentium 2 it will show continuously 100
lol good theory
no, i ment for AA in game!
Cant get Crossfire to work with these drivers, tried all sorts
Never had any problems before.
hi,me too having problems with this set of drivers.
uninstalled 8.10,then regedit and deleted eveything from amd and ati,then deleted folders on c:\
rebooted,installed 8.12 rc3,first time bsod,then they install fine,but no crossfire,this happens also with 8.11.
Its unacceptable,last time a buy ati cards,never had so many troubles with nvida card for just installing a driver.
Btw,8.10 works fine,but can't play newer games because they sometimes need newer drivers.
i hope the final 8.12 working,otherwise the ati cards flying out of my pc
What's the 2D/3D bug?
Card doesn't drop down to 2d speeds when you boot the OS until you open a 3d application and close it again. Easily bypassed problem though.
I thought it was only a misreading in the software, not an actual hardware problem.
Not only that. The first time you started a game it ran @ 2D Memory clock speeds.
question?,does my 4870 1gb have that bug cause only the gpu clock drop to 500mhz but the memory stays the same default or overclock,i have to do a 2D profile at 500mhz(gpu) and 500mhz(ram) or it should be doing this automatically
No thats normal with a 4870. Only 4870X2 cards downclock the memory.
thanks a lot KBDE.
