New ATI Drivers

The ATI Drivers & Software Page now features new version WinXP and Win2K 4.12 CATALYST reference drivers for ATI graphics cards. Games impacted by fixes in the new drivers are Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike, DOOM 3, EverQuest, Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault, Tron 2.0, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Thanks Thomas.

These new 4.12 caused 4 to 5 crashes an hour on Bloodlines, compaired to the 3.3.4.12b - DNA-drivers, I have been using for the last 2 weeks, never tried anything other than the ATI before, now these are the best I have seen.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

these perform worse than 4.11 for me

Wow, so the release version is like the beta version, but with fixes?!?

Way to try to sound important by just stating the painfully obvious there, champ.


No, you fool. I was just trying to make people with the 4.12beta driver aware that they should not expect anything newer or better with this WHQLed release.

It's obvious that you don't understand how ATi's current driver development works. This is just the one month old 4.12 beta released WHLQed, nothing else. I highly doubt that there are any changes between both.

And for starters (like you), ATI WHQLed driver releases are always based on 1-2 months old code! The fact that the WHQL process does take some time, ATI periodically releases an upcoming driver earlier as beta so that ATI users can profit of important improvements much earlier than normally.

In the case of the early 4.12beta release a month ago the reason was a significant HL2 performance increase.

The drivers w/CCC since about 4.09/4.10 have defaulted the driver to 60hz refresh after installation. I can only think that the ATI isn't testing the driver on CRTs for that to slip through. The way I've found to fix it is to unstall the CCC, use the standard control panel to set the display to the refresh rate you want, and then reinstall *just* the CCC.

Installing the CCC at the same time you install the drivers seems to be bad.

Downloading the version w/control panel (Not CCC)
CCC is the devil, end of story.

Thanx for the tip. Doesn't work though, since the "Use DDC" checkbox is ticked and grayed out... This is starting to remind me of installing a soundcard under 3.11, where things mysteriously, and seemingly randomly would not work...
EDIT: Downloading the version w/control panel (Not CCC). Maybe that was how I Fixed it. Distinctly remember swearing over this before... :-)
EDIT Again: Yes it was...

I use refreshforce, then just make sure to uncheck "Use DDC information" in the drivers and your all set.

These fuckin' drivers default to locking at 60Hz (like the 4.11's). I remember changing it, but not exactly what I did... damn... Any ideas?

YAY!
Finally newer drivers that don't give me texture corruption!
The beta ones did. Well, any of them with catalyst AI on did. I don't know if it's on or not, but at least it was a smooth transition this time.

Actually, they seem to be just a little slower than the 4.12b

This is basically the same version as the 4.12beta Driver released by ATI a month ago with some minor modifications.
