[TPU] AMD Catalyst 11.2 - Page 7

post #61 of 110
About my previous post. Yes the 4870s are a little old, but not that old and out dated. They are still fantastic cards with great performance. My beef is that AMD promotes new drivers that subvertly degrade performance on these cards. Now I dont know if they are doing it intentionally or not, to try to entice gaming/performance junkies to buy new cards, but they have to know the effects these drivers have on 4800 series cards. So if the last, best drivers for these cards where 10.5, they should so note it, or at least warn of the loss of performance. I totally understand if they are targeting the driver updates for new cards, but they should just offer patches to fix bugs in other cards. I have never had any bugs with these cards, and the only random crashes I had was when my OC wasnt stable. Oh, and I am not a hater, maybe a little of a fanboy or a loyal user.

It's something I had noticed from the 11.1a drivers as I could turn off tesselation even using tesselation at extreme in heaven. Those benchmark were ran at max tesselation (64x in ccc). So I decided to do a few more tests and even after clicking the "use application settings", it seems the last tesselation slider was still in action.

I did 6x tesselation from CCC, then clicked "use application settings" and here's what I got (11.2):



4x:


0x:




Those benchmarks were all ran using the same heaven settings, and were all using "use application settings" within CCC 11.2. Difference were changing the slider to the # tesselation, then clicking "use application settings" after slider was greyed out.

So there is obviously a flaw or non-compatibily in heaven where CCC last known tesselation will take over heaven tesselation. From 64x to 6x, I didnt really notice any differences that my eye was able to distinguish. At 4x, I could start seeing the tesselation wasn't at what is should be. And at 0x I could totally see the difference.

As for the improvements over 11.1a vs 11.12, check page 4 for scores in heaven, even tho its not a very overly world-changing improvement, it seems there is a little improvement from my test. I'll try running some 3d marks benchmarks for more concrete numbers.
My score now is the same as my old driver which were very old and its kind of disappointing. Must have had tessellation @ 0X when i got 69fps. Now i get 53fps.

I am still running a single 4870 and its still kickin ass, it is Oc'd to 800mhz.. good card. The 11.1 driver seemed fine, made playing dirt 2 less buggy. But I also have physx installed and I here that causes issues with some games/ ATI card.

Can you help me with this? I am trying to figure out how to do this like I used to with the old interface. All I want is a profile for gaming where the fan speed is a little higher.

This is caused by the change of memory frequency when changing from 2d to high performance 2d to 3d. Drivers 10.10 keep high mem frequency on 2d and if you want to use any later drivers you have to manually set the frequencies. Firefox will not flicker like that either, its primarily in IE. There is a way to disable GPU acceleration in IE but I don't remember how.
