I just upgraded to the 14.2 driver and my old SAPPHIRE HD5870 2 GB eyefinity6 edition is crashing left and right.

Anyone suggest a retro driver for the 5870?

It never was a game, mate. You just thought it was.

On which my 5870 crossfire / eyefinity (3 x 1920X1200 / 60 Hz through DP / MST-Hub) system is still sailing happily.


By the way, 14.2 was the first driver with AMD's specific note in the release notes that "Current driver MUST be uninstalled" before installing it... meaning: coming from a 13.xx or a 14.1 driver (possibly that is where your issue stems from). /EDIT]
