Preferred 5870 driver

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Which are the best drivers for this card? I have tried 10.12, 10.10. I heard 10.4 is one of the better ones but, just figured I would ask here before I install/uninstall them all to find the right one.

I just got my card back from RMA Friday & now I am getting black screen for 5-10sec like the computer has crashed and is restarting but then it comes back fine. I read it's most likely a driver issue.

Thanks

10.5 is one of the better ones, but I would just keep them up to date. Performance can only increase with these cards with each driver.

I'm on 10.12 and it hasn't caused me any harm, even with crossfire.


Just read that your receiving driver crashes, I would try the 10.5's as for a while they were the best, up until the 10.8's on up.

well I have TRI 5870's and my best has been 10.4 without any issues. I am currently on 10.12 and honestly dont notice any difference in performance between the two. But I do play Bad Company 2 all the time and it performs better with 10.4. Sometimes my screen turns partially black. If I zoom in and out it will go back to normal. Why I have not switched back to 10.4 at this point is beyond me, since the performance is the same for me.

10.10e is the best for me, no crashes. 10.11/12 driver would always crash as soon as the clocks dropped on loading screens in games.

10.5 or 10.8 for best performance definately, they both should be very stable and not causing the black screening your describing, I always uninstall via control panel, reboot in safe mode, run driver sweeper, reboot, re-intall drivers, reboot, install CAP's, and u should be good to go.

GL!
