I installed this driver
Win 7 64x
ASUS Mutrix HD7970

And there is a problem. now the model of video card AMD FirePro W9000 (FireGL V).
I open the "catalist control panel" and I can not find the menu option "AMD FirePro" This is necessary to enable 10bit color mode. What did I do wrong? How can I enable this mode?

hey, am trying to get the FireGL Control Center to load.... Could you please explain where you injected the id for it to load?
I found the ccc.dat file with ids, is it enought to enter the id there ?

mino


I found it, so dont bother....

it is in the Core-Static-Net4 msi file you have to add the id of the card, if anybody is searching for it...

Try the Config folder and edit the atiicdxx.msi ASIC_IDs it holds the information for the chipsets.

So change the marketing name from your own card into a marketing name for the FireGL card and try copying the information like turning the FGL flag to 0x1* also try bus speed 0x04* like the firepro cards.

If you really want to try a risky thing, which I've crashed a couple times so I don't do it.

You add your card to the Windows Display Driver inf files inside of Drivers/Display of the AMD install swap your cards directed installer so instead of r575 (for example 7970) you tell it to go to r575gl (w9000) for its install path, then don't mess with any of the settings.

I don't think Hawaii has any FireGL counterparts right now.

edit: I was writing most of this away from my home pc so some numbers were wrong.

Thanks a lot,
the atiix.msi file helped a lot... I didnt change the marketing name, i simply changed the isFireGl Setting yet. I get the FireGL Control Panel now, but the options are still the old options...
The card i am using is a bios flashed now r9 290X Card so there is no actual counterpart FireGl Card yet.

Anyway, i added this line before:

AddReg = ati2mtag_R575GL_SoftwareDeviceSettings to the[ati2mtag_Hawaii] Section. I forgot the [AMD_Service_Inst_Hawaii] Section though, it didnt do any good but no harm as well, so i removed it because of your warning, and i am happy that i didnt break anything....

you wrote something about bus speed of 0x06 but i think it is 0x01 (which is the standard value for the r9 290X) the chiptype is 0x06 (standard as well). the agp transfer of the r9 290X is 0x10 which is the highest number in the table so i didnt change any of it

Anyway, the driver installed without any problems and i did some test. The problem is, the results were somewhat inconsistent...

So first, the Spec Viewperf 11.0 Results



After that i did the SPECapcSM for PTC Creo™ 2.0 Test because the Results where the worst....

The Results of this test are:

SPECapc Creo TM 2.0 benchmark scoring utility

Installed graphics supports a minimum of 8x MSAA so compare results only to 8x MSAA results

OVERALL
________________________________________________________________________________
Graphics Composite (groups 3 & 4) = 5.74
Shaded Graphics Composite (group 4) = 5.62
Wireframe Graphics Composite (group 3) = 5.87
CPU Composite (group 1) = 3.14
I/O Composite (group 2) = 2.24


APPLICATION WORKFLOWS
________________________________________________________________________________
Worldcar_Graphics (test 1) = 4.52
Worldcar_Regen (test 2) = 2.06
Worldcar_Retessellation (test 3) = 2.32
Worldcar_Engine_Mass_Properties (test 4) = 2.87
Worldcar_Load_Erase_Load (test 5) = 2.29
Worldcar_Body_Graphics (test 6) = 5.54
IGES_Import_Export (test 7) = 2.19
Worldcar_Engine_Drawing_New (test 8) = 4.37


These Results are similar to some results i found on the Specs website of a workstation equiped with the ATI FirePro W8000 Card:


If you take the 8x MSAA into account that for whatever reason is enabled on the r9 290X Card this result seems more like what you would expect.
The second result is far more realistic as the framerate is apparently high enough that you have smooth movements throughout the benchmark even with 8xMSAA,
the benchmark is rather too fast at times, and it is run in the actual application. so the 2,96 fps in viewperf is definately not accurate...

There seems to be some problem with the Viewperf benchmark.... i dont know what it does but it is definately not benchmarking the actual application performance...
there are other tests for maya, 3dsmax and solidworks as well, but i dont have the possibility to run them.
It would be a good idea to check if there are the same differences and the modded drivers are actually much better than it seems to be in the Viewperf benchmark.

can i install this driver in my sony vaio laptop with ati mobility radeon hd 5470 graphic. the note says it supports mobility radeon hd 5400 series?
post #57 of 123
Code:
[ati2mtag_R575GL_SoftwareDeviceSettings]
HKR,, OGL_Specific_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, 3to2Pulldown_NA, %REG_SZ%, 0
HKR,, GI_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, CatalystAI_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, APISpecific_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, TemporalAAMultiplier_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, Main3D_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, VPURecover_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, SmartGart_NA, %REG_SZ%, 1
HKR,, DalReportSingleSelectedTiming,        %REG_DWORD%,  1
HKR,, KMD_EnableDesktopTexture,             %REG_DWORD%, 1

The NA means what? NATIVE ?
I guess Native would make sense.
I actually tried to put the call to these settings back in the driver, as addition after the R575 ones and the driver still installed, but it became really slow.
I put it in both parts, the ati2mtag and the service part. like this:
Code:
[ati2mtag_Hawaii]
...
AddReg = ati2mtag_SoftwareDeviceSettings
AddReg = ati2mtag_R575_SoftwareDeviceSettings

AddReg = ati2mtag_R575GL_SoftwareDeviceSettings

AddReg = ati2mtag_Hawaii_SoftwareDeviceSettings
AddReg = ati2mtag_FGL_SoftwareDeviceSettings
...

So maybe the native functions have to be enabled first, like the guys over at Benchmark suggest:

http://benchmark3d.com/mod-catalyst-driver-to-add-supported-cards

On the other hand, with the r575gl part the card doesnt block the onboard graphic anymore, so it might not be completely wrong after all...

So i guess i will put the r575gl part back in and do the stuff they suggest at benchmark3d unless somebody allready did it an knows it is killing my card.

P.S :

i got the wrong link:... and it wasnt at benchmark3d but guru3d:

the 5470 card has been added to the driver on the front page, so you can try to install it, it should install, but further than that I dont know, guarantee or take any responsibility if it will work or not though...

I wasn't using the mobility drivers to guide the firepro drivers.
Notebook graphics even have their own kind of download in the AMD driver section.

Well if normal graphics drivers for desktop cards work for you then try it.

ok, i guess i am done... the driver performance is pretty amazing... at least i think it is...



there are 10.001 hummers in the scene and it is still responsive, not smooth but when you start moving things around
I have 2 - 8 fps i guess thats enough.... The polygon count is negative because of a buffer overflow...
