Not that I'm having performance problems but some extra performance would be nice
Link takes me right to 8.7's ?
I'm installing the 8.8's. Maybe its your time zone, change it to US Central really fast
Anyone have a change log?
I don't see it, only 8.7.
That's just teh intarnetz punishing you for using IE7
And thanks 4 the heads up, downloading now
If you can't see it in the link in first post, then try here http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
Can't read release notes yet.
Edit: Got them. too many people i quess
LoL,now they show up
I was trying to show greasemonkey that the link to the 8.8 was working for me.I could have clicked it and opened in a new tab,but i wanted to show the tpu page in the background.Maybe i should have elaborated a bit more.
After someones comment about trying to prove myself an idiot,which i thought was directed at me,i deleted the post.
It's better to use this link instead of linking people to vista drivers. Not everyone uses vista!
I am just going to run 06 to see if my score is better or not.
Oh man I hated that, was the only thing preventing me from playing at max settings! Now I can play it again full FULL POWWAAAAA!
Where are the release notes?
I'll install them tomorrow. Long bug fix but not much for my pc.
well maybe with these i can OC my 4850 ever since 8.7 cant OC with out crashing
release notes here
Any in non pdf? I cant open them because I consider acrobat spyware.
I am in the process of doing a comparison between the 8.7 and 8.8 drivers with my 4850 (board isn't posting with both of them so single card for now) and my 3870x2, might be a while for full results, but I will keep this post updated as I finish them. For simplicity, I will be running all benchmarks with the cards overclocked.
EDIT: I am going to post screen shots of benches after I run them.
8.7 Vantage 4850
8.7 06 4850
8.7 Fur 4850
8.8 Vantage 4850
8.8 06 4850
8.8 Fur 4850 I had to swap out my 4850's, I think the other one is going bad, so I will reistall the 8.7 drivers with this card and compare to see if the significan loss here is driver or hardware related.
No powerplay fix, maybe more stable than beta, haven't tested performance yet.
lets hope these run FARCRY for me.
Farcry runs fine for me wolf(same os),try the delta sector mod,looks really nice,is hard too.
wolf to tigger, wolf to tigger, come in tigger --
dude it doesn't even start for me , just hangs with a black screen . tried reinstalling the game also .
Hey wolf il have to redownload it (yay its free now!), but I can try to test for you.
erocker to wolf, FarCry has worked for me sinced I installed it on the 8.5's
damn . . . it feels like 8.7 was only a week ago
