btarunr your link works.. but AMD's takes you to an "Invalid URL". hopefully they fix this soon. Doesn't really matter to me.. I won't be able to install it until later today. I'm glad they gave MLAA to the 5XXX series owners. Thanks for the info btarunr! :toast:

Sounding like a broken record :p

Having updates looks like the opposite of fail to me.

Btw the link does work fine, what doesn't work is AMD's download link.

Now that is really so much damn fail... :)

Wiz, there are enough letters to go around till next Cat release, so 10.11a is the next milestone. We won't run out of letters till then.

Either way, no need to mod drivers for my HD5850. And i love MLAA. It's good to see they keep old customers happy by adding such extra features.

i actually like these small, logical incremental updates.


no bullshit with

driver

222.22 has features A B and C
222.23 has A B and D but forgot C
222.24 is a beta made by a monkey and has its roots in the detonator 30.82 drivers, etc etc.

not to say ATI havent done the same shit in the past too, i just like the current orderly naming system.

Soon 10.11 should be out, so no 10.10z:laugh:
Catalyst 10.11 wont support MLAA, maybe 10.12 will ...

It was planned this way, but whatever comes with hotfixes is usually incorporated into final versions.
Otherwise why bother and waste development resources twice?

an educated guess is that this is their new driver system.


Release final.

work on fixes.

as fixes come out, release betas.

go by community feedback/extra testing to see what goes into next hotfix.


when due for new driver, pick best hotfix, slap whatever latest stuff you have on top, release, rinse and repeat.

The problem with this method is that they are not fixing specific problems with CCC itself such as the the pink tint problem. If they are going to release a bunch of hot fixes they have to 1st and foremost fix CCC and the driver itself in the original WHQL before they start added other profiles, fixes, etc.

You know what, I'll just wait for Catalyst 10.11 (and also hope they dont release Catalyst 10.11a on the day of release).

My god, they add features that didn't have time to make it into the final.......what if they add more features that the card never had when I bought it. The BASTARDS!!!!!

BTW. I'm now waiting on the "z" class ATI dragon warship driver with a cloaking device so I can remove the klingon drivers.



ATI: Hey guys, were giving you more enhancements, and some performance increases. But we promise not to kill your cards.
You: Wahhhh, more features, I can't even use the features I have to max out my scorez in benchmarking....


If you don't like it, don't use it. But stop your bitching, as I for one would love some MLAA action in a few games.

nicely done with the research. the drivers were soooo broken, they had to add in MLAA and release it early for us 5K card owners.

just unforgivable.
