CATALYST 3.6

kuglvinkl ::

New Features
The CATALYST™ software suite now provide a Force TV Detection feature.

Force TV Detection

Some TV sets may use non-standard inputs resulting in the TV enable button continuing to stay grayed out in the ATI Displays tab.
This issue is address by a Troubleshoot button that is now available. This button allows the user to force detection of their TV.

TV detection will also need to be re-enabled each time the system is restarted.

Nimam nobenih težav z verzijo 3.5,tako da ne bom zamenjal.

Gejmer ::

Te so pa hitri.. Menda hočejo slediti nnividiji. Jz bom naložu vseen.. Men bi blo bol ušeč da se usedejo pa nardijo ene dobre gonilnike za Win in še boljše za Linux(že dolgo ni bilo updata..)..
Nanda yo?

Tega prej ni bilo, zgleda da so nazadovali :D
Za Linux bi pa res rabil boljše. UT mi rahlo trza, ko ga igram v OpenGL.

Jap, nasledni teden pridejo pa 3.7 :D
Mah ne tolk, da bi sledili nVidii, ampak se še vedno pojavlja ful hroščev pri igrah, pri čemer tudi R300 ni izjema. Opažam tud, da se je začel folk kao bunit, da že od 3.2 ni blo spljoh kake optimizacije, kar se tiče same hitrosti. Ja valda, ko sam hrošče popravljajo. Od majhnih nedolžnih pokvarjenih tekstur pa do nezmožnosti igranja iger, npr. NWN za 8500/9000/9100, predvsem pa za 9600 serijo, kjer igra od random do 80 sekund zašteka. (ko že omenjam NWN, sem skoraj crknil od smeha, ko je tip CM rekel, da so za igro najbolj stabilni dobro leto stari gonilniki verzije xy) :D

CM se trudi, preseneča, sam še vedno,.. to ni to... ATI potrebuje še veliko vaje in veliko učenja od nVidie (z GF2Pro nisem imel problema niti z eno igro, pri Radeonu,...rajš najštejem tiste, s katerimi nisem mel problemov, bom prej konc) ;(( :D

Kar pa se AA tiče, je pa veliko iger teži k nVidii in to jih matra, bo treba malce popravt zadeve.

upirna ::

jaz mam radeona 9000 PRO, pa nimam nikakršnih težav. Res pa je, da ne igram iger(ali pa zelo malo).

Zheegec ::

Ne vem kaj vas matra nekatere. Imam R9100 in edina težava je Toca Race Driver (mogoče so to že odpravili?), drugače pa mi vse deluje ok, od raznih 3DMarkov, pa do UTja, GTA, NFS, Warcrafta, B&W, RON, CM2, CM3,...

freejack, a ti to iz lastnih izkušenj?

overman ::

Mene samo zanima kako zbrisem stare gonilnike oz. alui samo nove prek posnamem? Zdaj sem sel nekaj gledat napredno (meni) in opazil da tam pri graficni kartici pise: Chiptyp RADEON9700AGP (NE),
Dac-Typ: Internal DAC(400Mhz)-a je to normalno ali pa je moj radeon eden tistih, ki ima enak cip kot 9700?
Früher oder später wird jeder Geometer :p

upirna ::

gonilnike naj bi zbrisal v dodaj/odstrani programe, sam jaz jih ponavadi kar povozim.:)

ALIEN3001: Ti NWN in pa mogoče še Jedi Knight 2 (ob določenih max nastavitvah) deluje bp?

***********************

Da bi povozil gonilnike? Pa človk bi vas tepel.

ATI drivers do not always uninstall/update very well so I have my own foolproof method to make sure that everything goes as planned. This is geared towards WinXP, but the principles are the same in all Windows OS's. This the closest I can get to a clean install of ATI drivers/SW that I have figured out short of a reformat.

You will need to disable Windows File Protection (WFP) or do the file deletions in the \system32 folder while in safe mode depending on your system configuration. To disable WFP, I use X-Setup by X-teq (free, very powerful system tweaker) and you should have no problems deleting any file. Otherwise Safe Mode should work just fine. (press F8 during startup and select Safe Mode)

Items you will need before you start:


* Download all of the necessary drivers from here
* Download and install Regcleaner (the best registry tool out there) from here.


System purging procedure:


* Uninstall all ATI SW, drivers, hydravision, MMC, remote SW, whatever because it makes it easier to clean up your system and it won't cause problems when restarting. Don't reboot until everything is uninstalled.

* Delete the following directories:

* C:\ATI
* C:\Program Files\ATI Multimedia
* C:\Program Files\ATI Technology
* C:\Program Files\Common Files\Raviscent Shared

note: you may not have all of these depending on your card type, just delete the ones you have



* Clean out the C:\Windows\Temp directory. There is a chance there are some driver files in there as well.

* Go to the C:Windows\system32 directory, make sure you are in detail view and right click on the header (where name, file type, date modified...is) and select more and check the box for Company. Then double click on the Company header and then delete all of the ATI files in there. Do the same for the C:Windows\system32\drivers directory.

* Go to the C:\Windows\inf directory and delete any file that starts with ATI (open the inf files in notepad). Then go down to each file named oemxx.inf and open it, delete any that refer to ATI. Make sure that you delete the corresponding .pnf file as well.

* Run Regcleaner. Delete any ATI entries.

* Empty the Recycle Bin.

* Unplug your internet connection or disable it. (Mainly for WinXP) If you don't Windows will try to download a driver for you and install it.

* Reboot




Driver/SW install


* Install the WDM drivers For AIW cards only. Do not reboot.

* Install the Display drives (Catalyst). Do not reboot.

* Install the Control Panel. Reboot.



On startup Windows will install all of your HW went it boots and it will take a few minutes. If you are using a non-AIW card you are done. For AIW users, there are two more setps:


* Install the MMC SW. Reboot.

* Install the MMC DVD Decoder SW. Reboot



Like I said, I have done this more than a few times and it always works for me. I wouldn't have spent all of the time formatting this message if I didn't believe in it.

**************************

overman: neki časa nazaj je blo govora o 9500, ki so uporabljale iste čipe, ki so na 9700. Te si lahko zmodal potem iz 9500 na 9700, zarad česar so jih tudi vzeli iz prodaje. Če si morda lastiš 9500 s 9700 čipom, hitro pobrskaj po forumu, da vidiš, kako lahko iz svoje grafe dobiš čisto pravcati 9700.

**********************

upirna: govorim tako iz osebnih izkušenj, kot iz izkušenj mnogih ATIjevih lastnikov.
p.s. s CM sem mislil na Catalyst Makerja, ne na Colin McRae.

# Slowdown / stuttering in D3D/openGL with AMD MPx dual chipsets

Impresiven seznam. Jaz mam edino negativne izkušnje z NWN, ki mi po nekaj trenutkih zmrzne.... blah :'( .

# Gothic2 slow FPS in towns

# missing refresh rates in driver for monitors able to support them


tole sem dejansko tudi sam doživel... in če pomislim, da igram v bistvu zelo malo različnih iger :\. pravzaprav sem za par od teh stvari mislil, da so problemi s samo igro (predvsem upočasnitve v morrowind, nwn in gothic 2). go figure...
1ACDoHVj3wn7N4EMpGVU4YGLR9HTfkNhTd... in case I've written something useful :)

asPeteR ::

Samo nekaj.

Zakaj pa mislite, da se to dogaja? Nesposobnost programerjev?(a ni malo cudno, da v eni igri vse dela v eni za zezajo stvari?)Skratka potem sledi ugotovitev, kaj pa ce programerji teh iger niso tako superiorni, kot vsi ocitno mislite?(sodec po tem, da nobenen ne udriha po njih)

Stvar je podobna, kot pri chashanju winsev. Vsi krivimi billija in kompanijo, v resnici se pa ve, da je levji delez, teh neprijetnosti neznanju piscev gonilnikov. Zacuda, odkar je MS uvedel driver signing, so ti chrashi(blue screeni) prakticno izginili. Go figure ... In ta primer lahko lepo prenesemo v nas problem.

Joj kaj bom jaz enemu naredil, ko dela driverje za ATI...
Ravno sem zložil vodno v kišto in hladim tudi radeona... lepo zalaufam, dam gor CAtalyst 3.6, zaženem 3d mark 2001 ... ne konča celega, še enkrat... ne konča celega... v tretje ga je le končal in to z rezultatom malo čez 6000 pik... Halo??? ;(( Sem mislil, da mogoče zajebava kaj voda...:O zložim spet vse iz kište, izpraznim sistem, dam navadne hladilnike gor... probam 3d mark... isto...:O
Odstranim driverje z driver cleanerjem in naložim Catalyst 3.2. Ne boste verjeli, ampak stvar dela čisto normalno. Preko 17000 pik spet 8-O
Zdaj pa jovo na novo dat cel sistem z vodo nazaj... :\
Walking the way is something completely different than imagining the way.

freejack ::

Od 3.2 naprej se stvari še bolj sesuvajo, napaka pa je tako s strani pisca gonilnikov, kot s strani pisca iger, čeprav so gonilniki manjši krivci, kot proizvajalci iger. Problem je v tem, da je veliko iger naperjenih proti določenemu čipu oz. njegovem proizvajalcu, konkretno NWN za nVdiio, čeprav tega ne bo nobeden potrdil, Atijevi programerji imajo v tem primeru slabši položaj, saj morajo določene stvari predelat, da bodo sploh solidno delalo, kot npr. zadnje čase je veliko problemov z AA v določenih igrah, pa ne govorim samo o funkcijah, ki se tičejo iger. Ko "ekslkuzivnih optimizacij" za določen čip ne bo več, bo na vseh karticah delalo, ne samo normalno, ampak celo stabilno.
