    Have you installed the drivers for both primary and secondary card?
    ATI cards always show up as two cards in the device manager.

    Hmmm, now that you mention it. I probably did not install the secondary..

    Ill also do screen shots of my installation process, so that way any one who knows better ( or less! this will help for people who never softmodded) can improve the soft mod installation and ask less of the same questions popping up in this forum. :smoke:

    My X1950Pro AGP 512 is ok for firegl7350 ;-))

    the drivers are ok but if the realview solidworks 2005 sp05 don't work : go to the site solidworks for the patch "fireglpatch".

    It's very cool ;-))

    do you know goods benchmarks for firegl?

    Thx all for the help

    I just ordered an x1950XT, and planning to SoftQuadro, ahem, I mean SoftFireGL it. :) Psyched. I got sick of Nvidia and hassling with Quadro protections.

    softmod working on 1950xt

    Finally got my x1950xt modded and benching properly. Used the 8.293 drivers and huangyanhao's script. Thanks huangyanhao! :rock:


    Initially thought it wasn't working because Spec9 scores were very low. I discovered the 8.293 FireGL "maya" profile sucks, don't use it. Default settings OpenGL is much faster and i see no quality differences. Will post scores later, but I'm getting around 70 on Maya in Spec9, and Mudbox and Zbrush seem fast.

    1) patch driver with above script using Rivatuner, as per instructions in this thread.
    2) No need to edit .inf file.
    3) Completely uninstall all drivers from device manager
    4) Reboot VGA
    5) IF your card has VIVO capability, install latest Catayst. however, select "custom" and deselect drivers and Catalyst, leaving only WDM drivers, which will install ATI's VIVO function.
    5b) manually "update drivers" from device manager, for primary and secondary video, forcing 7350 for 19xx series. (lower device id is primary. my primary was 0x7244, my secondary 0x7264)
    6) reboot and install control panel from FireGL 8.293
    7) stay in "default" OpenGL settings and disable refresh sync for benching, unless it causes problems or a specific profile is needed.

    Toledo : Try using Driver Cleaner Pro or whatever its called and make sure you are starting fresh,


    Now, my own problem w/ Solidworks 2007, 1900XT using the V7350 drivers,

    I've gotten the driver setup and RealView is enabled in solidworks, but the textures are not shiny..... That is, they are just matte as if RealView was not enabled....

    Has anyone run into this ?

    Edit: Nevermind, I'm freaking retarded. You need to set the material not the texture. Its been awhile since I've used SW.

    Thanks to to everyone that made this possible (this site, rivatuner, the scripts, the users)!

    I already tried that but with other driver ,i will try to clean up all the stuff with drive cleaner a try again with the latest driver ... regarding SolidWorks textures , they will be shiny if you choose proper materials , for some materials Realview makes no difference at all .

    btw- the ATI drivers are a PITA to uninstall and reinstall. Once you get them installed, leave them alone. Game drivers (Catalyst) can somehow interfere with the FireGL control panel, and make it very difficult to install without registry editing out all references of it in safe mode.

    So, stay away from Catalyst, and be very careful installing/uninstalling ATI drivers. Do one thing at a time, and reboot often between steps.

    Make sure you're not running any other video card tools like ATI Tool or such. I've noticed they tend to mess up over clocking and can cause crashes, and will prevent Spec from running.

    New Specviewperf 9 scores and some weird issues.

    Once i realized OpenGL wasn't running my 1950xt to full clocks I ran Rivatuner's HW monitor and ATI Tool to manually set clocks to full default spec 625/1800(900*2). If anyone knows how to activate ATI's built in clock controls to OC for OpenGL, please let me know!

    Also, kinda dissapointed with the OpenGL control panel for 8.293. The only tabs I have are: options, rotation, configuration, advanced settings, displays, color. Seems lacking detailed OpenGL controls.

    Also, running ATI Tray Tools and tweaking any OpenGL settings totally kills performance. So, apparently ATI's OpenGL drivers are a black box.

    X1950XT 512 @ FireGL 7350
    Wow nice maya score :)

    Thats really strange about the opengl clock issue. Anyone else notice this?

    I just ordered my x1950xt 512MB so hopefully i have a nice 7350 soon too. Be a nice change in graphics card as the last ATI i touched was a 9800Pro modded to a FireGL X2... So i can not wait to play around with the new card.
