very very very good review.
one of the most complete review that i've ever read.
congrats for the reviewer
Great job to both of you. And just in time, as my X1900XT arrived today
Tell us how it is.
Catalyst 6.4 works with ATI Tool 0.25 beta 14 ?
It is a very interesting article.
How did you make ATI Tool 0.25 beta 14 work with Catalyst 6.4 ?
Indeed, I am forced to use Catalyst 6.3 version only since, with all newer versions (6.4 to 6.6), the GPU and memory clocks are automatically reverted to 2D ones when I launch a game.
And I have another question : when I launch a game (except F.E.A.R.), the GPU and memory clocks remain at 2D frequencies whereas I applied 3D profile when a 3D application is launched and 2D profile for 2D applications (3D detection menu in ATI Tool). Consequently, when I launch a game, the 2 frequencies should change form 2D to 3D values. That only works with F.E.A.R. This problem is solved by manually choosing 3D frequencies before playing.
Did you encounter this problem ? If not, would you know why such symptoms occur ?
First the ATITool Beta Area and Bug Reports threads are going to be the best place to ask questions...
I didn't have any trouble running the 3d clocks using ATITool with Cat 6.4 and I did test the 3d profile with FEAR and did not have the same issues as you. It would appear that some people are having issues where others are not... I will test on another system other than the one I used in the review to see if the issues you have become apparent...
Passionne... I installed CAT 6.6 on the benchmark system used in the review and on a DFI mobo... I was able to use ATITool to set 3D clocks and profile, the only issue I had was when playing FEAR, I went to Graphic options and when it did "Detecting Memory" for the video card I lost Fan control, so it maybe in the way FEAR wants to detect the video card for auto settings... I was not able to reproduce your error, have you tried to set the 3d clocks without using a profile? Do you have your profile to set back to 2D clocks? Maybe uncheck return to 2D from the profile and test...
