Catalyst 11.1a hotfix available - Page 4

post #31 of 100
So far so good for me, concerning these drivers.
There's only one thing i came across, i got 6870, but somehow these drivers make it run on 300/300 at stock idle, tried to bring it back to 100/300, but no go atm. Anyway, that's not big of a deal, at least for me, so i'm more than satisfied - far better than the last i used (10.12), used to BSOD out of nothing, while computer wasn't even used.

As far as driver sweeper, I only recently started using it as a backup. Used it the other day, and windows wouldn't regonize my AMD card upon reinstalling, kept saying I have no graphics card installed.. lol I've always used DriverCleaner.net with no problem though..
Amen to that. With 10.12a drivers, after a period of time I'd lose performance mysteriously. I tested in Metro 2033 bench and sure enough fps would drop from 80 to 55, no matter if I was at 4ghz or 4.6ghz I was stuck under 60fps.

With 11.11a damn, first run in 2x cf 76fps. Hallelujah! I enabled, disabled, moved this, changed that... then set everything back to normal. Ran Metro bench again, bang 80fps. This driver just works like how it's supposed to.

I guess the personnel changes in the driver team are working out!

Anyone got a different link for the drivers? They seem to be down at the German site.

[edit] Nvm, looks like TPU got it up, I figure it's the same set of drivers.

Yes, but you used it to remove nVidia drivers.

So whats the right way to install new ATI drivers?
post #39 of 100
AMD's recommendation was just to install the new over the old, which has worked for me for every driver except 10.10 -- in which case, you can use CCC's uninstall feature to remove the driver completely.
post #40 of 100
When is this driver coming to the AMD Driver Page? I like to download them officially.

I am sticking with 10.10e until it does come out and when it does, if it is well appraised....
