NEW 12.1 Catalyst Drivers cure High CPU Usage problems with ATI cards...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Okay, I tested this after DarkRyder gave me a heads up... works great on Milkyway, Albert@Home, Collatz, and Moo! Wrapper...

DarkRyder tested it on 3 machines and bal2wolf tested on several as well as my one HD6990 box.

No more having to free up 2 cores to run Moo! or Albert!!

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/Catalyst121Previewdriver.aspx

Enjoy!

Does this include the 8.93 display driver, or is it still 8.92?

Edit: I'm currently using 8.93 with catalyst version 11.12.

Interesting. Roughly how much CPU is freed up?

I was having issues with BF3 since the most recent patch. I wonder if this might help out...

It used to take 2 free cores to run the GPU's crunching BOINC... now it uses so little CPU's that I don't have to free up the 2 cores....

Have no idea how games may be affected...

The link Tex provided states that gamers should use the new driver. My CPU usage for my video cards has dropped. I am running another WCG thread and the video cards didn't even notice.
