ATI Drivers in Boot Camp?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Basically, heres the question, I look at the reviews for the 6750M (currently in my MacBook Pro), and the fps reviews on notebookcheck.net look great and all, but when I launch the same games I get worse FPS. I was curious, when installing the amd/ati video drivers, do people use the ones created by boot camp assistant or the ones directly from ATI/AMD's website located here - http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...win7-64.aspx#1

I have a 2820QM processor, and 8 GB of DDR3 1600 MHz. I am surpised my FPS is rated lower than it should be.

How much worse is your FPS?

With my (older) MBPro I have always just used the drivers installed via BootCamp. It may be worth contacting the reviewer?

Well I am running COD on medium, and I get 30-40 fps. The benchmarks here are 76 fps, BC2, feels less fluid than it was before. I had a 15 inch laptop with an i7-840QM, 8 GB DDR3, and a 5850M and it ran better.

I would just pick up the drivers from AMD directly. Boot camp is just a program that allows you to partition your hard drive and configure a boot loader to allow you to switch operating systems during boot-up.

It has been said many times, after you install windows using boot camp; you will have to do all the necessary driver and program installs to get windows working at full speed.

Problem is if I install the ATI drivers, then install Bootcamp software it installs all the drivers again and overwrites the ATI drivers.

Bootcamp first then the ATI drivers? Sorry if that's just stating the obvious, am I missing something?

Well I am just curious as to which driver is the best. I have heard people getting huge gains when not using the Apple Boot Camp driver, but I tried the one directly from AMD last night and it wouldn't detect the card/work.

Install the ATI drivers AFTER the bootcamp install. Also, check to see if they downclocked the gpu. I have the 9600m Model and they downclocked the gpu so i had to run afterburner to bring that badboy back up.

PS I use the official nvidia drivers for mine as apple is sooooo sloooooow to update the drivers in their packages.

I wish I had nvidia at this point. The only drivers I can install are the ones Boot Camp puts on the CD.

17" or 15" model? If the former, make sure you're looking at the scores for the 17"'s 1080p resolution and not the 900p resolution of the 15".

Actually, it's not even a boot loader.

What problems are you having exactly when trying to install the drivers from AMD?
