Calling all people who downgrade drivers or don't update because new versions suck - Page 2

Poll Results: do you update your ATI drivers?

 
  • 56% (44)
    Yes, every time.
  • 24% (19)
    I sometimes look for the version that works best with my computer
  • 19% (15)
    No, never, I only stick with one release that works best. ATI rarely fixes stuff.

5850 is a few yrs old now , 11.1 driver was not designed for these cards .. nor a 5770 , nor 5850 or a 5870 . 11.1 is for 69XX cards only , IMO .. You think they still worry about 5850 drivers ? time to move on , there latest series are out now and people have a long list for ati to fix in upcoming driver releases ..

I too always update. Though I don't personally benchmark... So I don't know what drivers are the 'best'. And I don't really have any trouble with the newest drivers.

Though I might download some benchmarking software for my gpu and then test out drivers, especially after coming into contact with the level of acidity quite a number of posters here reserve for the latest driver for their non 6900 cards.

I got my 5970 in November, installed whatever was the newest on their site at the time, and I've not updated since.

Why should I? All my games run perfectly, and I don't spend waste my days benchmarking to impress people I don't even know, so I have no reason to.

Well you do have a 5970 afterall... It's not like it 4-5 frames matters to you tongue.gif

However I think that benchmarking to get the best performance out of your machine (which seems to me the thing that everyone here tries to do as well as to impress them) seems like a logical thing to do.

I've never had any issues with my ATi drivers. I used to update every month and then thought about it. Why do I do it? If everything works as it should, why bother?

And there's the issue with frame rates. You guys complain about frame rate loss, yet you're using a 60Hz monitor. You wont EVER see any thing over 60FPS unless you get a new monitor with a higher refresh rate.
While yes, in certain games, Valve games mainly, more FPS does = better performance, but in games like BFBC2, there is NO discernible difference between 60 FPS and 150 that I've noticed.

At any rate, since I installed Win 7 (last month), I've just used the 10.5 driver and been happy with it. I don't really care about benching, and I don't care about FPS unless I'm getting less than 60.

Also, for all of you *****ing about ATi drivers, just remember this, ATi has never released ANY driver that has literally KILLED cards like Nvidia has.

Also, nvidia sacrifices image quality for FPS. I know this for a fact as well. (The difference between the 175.19 driver and the 180.xx driver). I'll take quality over high FPS any day.

What would you suggest is best driver for 5750 ?

I do some oc'ing all the time and Ive read that is possible to achieve 10k gpu score in vantage but I have no clue how.

I did some bechmarks with 10.12 and the latest ones 11.1 with my card oc'ed at 870/1350 in both cases - second screen due to the nature of bugged driver shows 10.12 instead of 11.1 as it should:


1. CPU at stock clock, gpu at 870/1350, driver 10.12
3dmkvstock8701350.jpg



2. CPU at stock clock, gpu at 870/1350, driver 11.1
3dmkvstock8701350drvupd.jpg


Looks like no big differance but I can see it when playing Black Ops... Im gonna downgrade. So lets get back to what are the best drivers for 5750 then and how can I achieve that 10k gpu score Ive read about ? smile.gif

Cheers.

So what I see now are 3 groups of people

those who update always and never had a problem
those who sometimes update and don't have a problem, but don't care about latest version either

Those who have 1 version they like, because it works perfectly.

I used to update every month, until it started to crash and glitch. Then I downgraded, and I'm happy. And my friend can't live with it.

There's one thing you need to understand. When a company releases new drivers, they DO improve something, you can't expect them to improve every single thing with 1 update, that would pretty much take a ****load of time while THOUSANDS of people around the world are having issues with some older drivers, and every issue is an issue, if it doesnt fix anything for you, simply don't update it, period. No need to bash everyone else because they do update, or make a poll about it.
And if i recall, most issues are Crossfire and Eyefinity, because, honestly, this is the third time i use an ATI card, and i NEVER had a single problem, lag, bsods, random crap happening or delays..

same applies to your friend, just kick him in the head, coz nobody really gives a damn about it...

Why do you really need to achieve 10k? Benchmarking is tecnically for fags who got nothing else to do except showing off their non-existant e-peen on the internet..
You got a gaming card, objective is plain simple: GAME
What do you really need benchmarks for?

Dont worry Im not one of those showing off fags I simply seek fps boost for Call of Duty Black Ops and some future games I might play like Duke Nukem Forever. If its possible to squeeze any extra performance then why not going for it ? And I want this for myself not for flashing 3DMark screens - the reason I include them is so people that I ask for help have more details. Im clueless and barely a rookie and some day I would like to know what those things mean and to be able to draw my own conclusions and apply my own solutions so I wont ask others for help.
