im d/l'n at the moment and will let ya know asap solaris if theres anything up with the 3870z
np Solaris, i ran into a tiny snag...
Can someone tell me how and what to click on..... the beta driver is zipped and i use WinRAR to unzip... how do i run the install?
what kind of files do you get?
Check if it has "RC2" in the name: if it does, you have the wrong version.
You need one that has "RC3" in the name.
I may be wrong but i believe you have the wrong version. Does it have "rc3" in it's name?
The file name should be "vista32-64_8-561rc3-081201a-072643E_CAT-8-12.exe"
No it says RC2in it.
You made the same mistake i did, when i 1st downloaded.
Check this post and download from there.
All ready ahead of ya man... thanks for the help..
how you liking the beta?
Since i don't have any of the games listed in the OP, nor do i have 3DMark and Vantage installed ... can't really say: sorry
I don't notice any differences in ... Diablo II ...
No worries... i have mark06 and will see what it does now.... the RC3 worked flawless and it was the best driver by far to load....
Not just an ATI issue, I have an older gaming rig running SLI and it does the same thing comming out of sleep... Must be a DRM thing, def driver related.... Yea Vista!! Common Windows 7...
Will wait for final, last time beta was a headache
Seems to be mostly just Vista, 4850s in crossfire, and sometimes intel chipsets.
Not effecting 4870s for some reason.
8.5 ccc is great... 8.7 ok.... and 8.10ccc is working the best for me.... gee ATI gimme what works for me lol..
they're waiting on the GTX 295
My configuration with 2x 4870 in crossfire not function.... 1 card is correctly installed... the second was disabled by windows vista because is incompatible
I wonder if this Driver will Support AGP parts out of the box or are we going to have to wait for the Hotfix Driver?
Thanks for the news, got the drivers up and running... may I say hell yeah? Everything is running like pie! Running crysis wars and far cry 2 so much better, no benchmarks from me though. Sigh now if only I got my other 4850 back from RMA >=[
worked fine when i installed RC3 over 8.11 on 4870 / Vista SP1 64-bit
Usually the release candidates do support AGP, the 8.11 betas did, so I'm going to presume these do as well. I'll be installing them tonight after work. If you haven't tried them out before me I'll tell you what I think.
UPDATE: Maximum disappointment! It wouldn't install I've now gone back to the 8.11 RC2 as this was the set I managed to get 9606 with - hopefully I'll be able to break that score.
Well I may wait for Final Release Drivers and Probably a Format to get this machine fresh, I was thinking about getting a copy of Vista and puting it to a diff HD and run XP and Vista Parallel and see how Vista does, but it seems NF2 Dont have New Drivers, along with the SATA Controller.
I like these, things seem a bit smoother, may have to do with my fresh install last night but I keep my systems really clean.
Are these new drivers expected to fix any crossfire issues?
