I use AtiTool 0.26 (for XP). 0.27 Beta for Vista.
I use Rivatuner 2.0 Final in XP. Allows me to overclock and change fan speeds.
I don't think I even want to know the power reqs.
These drivers improved my 3dmark06 score, however.
Digital Scaling Now Works.
Desktop Resize on a HDTV still is non-functional. Option is available, but still doesn't work.
Ill be selling my card on eBay if I can't get this feature. Its very important to me.
It worked on the orignal drivers off course, but those drivers were terrible when it came to hd purevideo technology.
Well, I have tried these drvrs till now only on S.T.A.L.K.E.R where was no problem but TDU did not run me good. There were many artefacts and others problems. And there was a really huge FPS decrease. So going back to 100.02 or gonna try 158.19
try ForceDriverVersion 16501
Works for me, but then again I'm using XP
Express Test ForceWare 165.01 XP in Games: STALKER, Test Drive Unlimited, FarCry, FEAR
you might want to test it with a good card, cause the only i have is performance gains, no loss at all
Ok, I finally found a bug with these drivers (and the 158.19). Apparently I can't watch certain h264 encoded video files, watching them will have garbled graphics on the video screen and once, I got a BSOD after trying to play the video file. Reverting back to 97.92 solved the problem but also reduced my performance...
Man, now this sucks donkey balls.
Edit: Hmm, seems like CCCP and ffdshow does not agree with these drivers. Had to use VLC to playback the problematic files. Note that not all h264 files have problems in CCCP/MPC/Ffdshow but there are some... at least for me.
I tried these on xp with my 7950gx2 and they make FEAR and Need for speed carbon reboot my computer.
Ati tool works for overclocking in xp but i dont know about vista since i uninstalled it.What i want to know is can i get old control panel in xp?
Should I get the 165.01 driver on a Vista 32 bit computer ? or stick with the 100 version driver for now?
i have a BFg 8800gtx
Hi Many thanks for your help. I tried ATi Tool 0.27 b1, IL2 1946 run quite smooth without stutter at the beginning of mission.
Well I've only been playing STALKER & Supreme Commander on these drivers & to be honest Supreme Commander seems to be smother & more responsive. But STALKER's performance on my system is now worse than the 101.70's capabilities.. well I'll keep looking into it tonight.. but I'm not sure there's anything I can do to up the frame rates apart from turn off the Object Dynamic Lighting routines but that is not going to be an option as I'll just go back to the 101.70's rather than loose a lot of STALKERS atmosphere.
yup, i'll send you the reg file you need
Test Drive Unlimited is a lot smoother and responsive with 165.01 on XP than with v 102.
Can I have the reg file to enable the old CP in XP?
sure, pm me your email addy.
