Ill give this a try. Hopefully it fixes the issues I have been having with 9.2 and 9.3
I gained about 300 3dmark 6 points
but here again i lost about 200 when i installed 9.3
Ugh, had to disable catalyst ai to get rid of vantage artifacts. Before, having it disabled caused these artifacts... weird
Nope still didn't fix my issues. Back to 9.1 for me.
I'm on 9.2 right now. 9.1 was a little odd for me, couldn't put a finger on it but there was just something off. But other than that I really haven't had any problems with any drivers.
The best reason for CCC IMHO.
except CCC won't let me go over 790 on my 4870
thats a known crossfire problem. You have to reboot between enabling/disabling crossfire.
Thanks, a reboot did the trick. It's running right now. 3dmark 06 gained me back the 700 points i lost in 9.3. hopefully vantage will go up as well.
I have my bios modded at 700 core & 1000 mem for my 4830. Every CCC release after 9.1 downclocks my 4830 to 585 core & 900 mem. I can't OC the card with any program at all (CCC, Riva tune, etc).
I've gone up 400PPD in F@H with these over 9.3
I believe one thing tho is most of those Cards that are PCI Express actually will probably become part of the AGP Hotfix Suite as Radeon 9k some models of the Radeon X*** and then X**** are AGP while the rest are PCI Express.
you can use Cyberlinks software to encode using ATI GPU
this is the an expect good driver for 4xxx from ATI , but i expect it come with havok physics
So when I paid $549 for a X1800XT new, and it worked fine with the software provided, then to a 3870, and it worked fine, and now to a 4850, and it doesn't work on operating systems out in mass, I should have to buy another piece of software, (that fucks with my canon transfer and editing software) to make something advertised work?
Nothign against you, this rant is about ATi and their software support. If I pay a grand for a high definitino camera that supports the files natively, and alot of money for a all AMD/ATI system, their shit should work. Not, mebey, or only for users with XP-X86. But for the new operating system that has been out for ohh 2.5 years or so, it should be supported.
what are you looking for again? i can find links for AviVo video conversion software on the ATI site, for vista x64
Wait a month or two
I know its a shameful copout. But I reinstalled vista64 and was able to get rid of that code 43 error. running asus m3a32mvp, phenom 9600, and 2 hd3870 crossfire.
still no avivo ... support...
But it seems available for Vista 32-bit
what am i missing here?
I believe You don't need "Avivo™ Package" to watch Blue Ray titles.
The driver already supports decoding of them.
"Avivo™ Package" is used to encode or re-encode videos.
Here is a program that can check HD decoding availability DXVAChecker
In Decoder Device tab it should contain these:
*VLD = Variable-Length Decoder
*FGT = Film Grain Technology
ok dude we wait for ATi strike
You can install AVIVO video converter on Vista x64 and it works fine. It just doesn't use the GPU acceleration for encoding. I've done some thorough testing in this regard on both XP32 and Vista64 and the GPU acceleration does very little, if anything at all. There was no significant speed difference between the two OS's. And that's just on top of the fact that the converter is an utter crap. Speed is amazing, quality is very poor.
As discussed on another forum, the GPU is not used for encoding as such (on any OS), it is merely used for geometry calculations, which is only a small part of the encoding process.
To sum up, if you find the quality of the converter satisfactory, you can still use it under Vista64 no problem. It's still very, very fast. As far as I can tell, the quality in Badaboom is almost equally poor. So if it's quality you're after, then invest in some decent CPU and use x264.
OT: I wouldn't say that Vistax64 is out in mass...
The chipset xpress1150 present in motherboard is not supported by catalyst 9.4
but stop to catalyst 9.3
