Catalyst 11.9/11.10 Issues

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
After upgrading from Catalyst 11.8 to 11.9/11.10, the game RAGE will not open/load. I was able to play it without any performance/quality issues for hours while using 11.8.

1) I have followed the trouble shooting steps from STEAM.
2) I have "completely" uninstalled each driver several times back & forth only to confirm that 11.8 only plays RAGE.
3) I have also made 3 fresh installs of WINDOWS 7.
4) I noticed that the WINDOWS INDEX RATNG for my graphics has dropped from 7.8 to 6.3
5) I have reduced all overclocks to notice no change in the problem.

I know RAGE has been plagued with performance issues for a multitude of PC folks. I just find it really odd (albeit frustrating) that newer "optimized" drivers don't even let the game open along with the WINDOWS INDEX RATNG dropping so low.

Any input would be immensely appreciated

Stay on 11.8 if you can. Or download a modded 11.9/11.10 driver.

yeah i'm fine on 11.8. i'm just baffled why the alleged "RAGE optimized drivers" conflict like that. the windows index isn't a real issue since i haven't noticed any performance hit in games - just weird.

That's pretty weird, just updated my drivers from 10.9 to 10.10 and my windows 7 rating went from 7.3 to 7.9, so I'm pretty happy! And all Rage's texture issues are sorted... So no complaints from my side

OK, scratch the Rage part, after a few minutes of playing the textures go crazy!!! But at least my Windows 7 rating still went up LOL
