Have there been any decent drivers for ATI 5970 after 10.11?

post #1 of 7

Hi guys,

More than two years after the release of my card I have yet to see any decent drivers for my HD 5970.

Currently I have Catalyst 10.11 wich seems to be the least buggy, do you know of a more stable release?

11.6 will not hurt you. Minor 5 series changed have been made since the drivers your using. Might as well take full advantage of these small changed. Follow my guide in my sig to remove your current drivers properly.

I have 5970 crossfire, and I'm loving the new 11.6 drivers.
11.5a Hotfix was good too.

Go ahead.. upgrade.. AMD is changing. 8-)

I have problem Need For Speed Shift 2, and Crysis 2 though.. flickering .. hope it will be solved in 11.7

I like the 11.6 drivers. I always update and this is the first time I notice a difference.

It fixed my LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean flickering, Shift 2 flickering and Crysis 2 flickering. I still get kinda low frames on Shift 2 at night though.

I can confirm Crysis 2 ficlkering is gone for me as well.

It would seem 11.6 is a good release for HD5970.
