nice, i had issues with 9.8 hotfix but this gives me those things + a stable driver


and it seems threes more than one HDMI fix here - this is great news, as HDMI bugs (scaling, missing options) is a long-standing, annoying bug with ATI drivers
Can you confirm the return of scaling in 7?

It works fine so far, but wierd enough the Chinese CCC (Lang 1) is still 9.8.

Would the Sims 3 fix be pertaining to the trees looking weird with AA enabled? Or has it been fixed already before and I've just didn't really notice it since I haven't played Sims 3 again for quite some time? :p

ATI arent fixing this stuff anytime soon - the admin on their forums wont admit theres even an issue and bans those who disagree with him over it.

The hotfix didn't fix the issues for me with the trees, and enabling advanced AI causes huge lag when zooming.

However they and the AVIVO video package are waiting for me at home.

The fix for the scaling issue in 7 is here:

http://www.tech-report.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=68072
no, its not.

thats the solution offered by spyre on their forums, and its wrong. the first link in my sig is about me getting banned from the ATI forums for pointing out their "solution" doesnt work - let me provide a screenshot as proof (the act that got me banned)




Note that the native res is stated as 1080P while the resolution is lower (and apply is greyed out, so i have hit apply) - not there.

To make it work you have to go below 1280x1024 (an issue fixed for XP around cat 8.5, but ignored for 7 - it was in a change log), and even that doesnt work for some people.

The question is - why is this needed? why cant the setting be applied at ANY resolution, since it has no effect unless you lower it?

I confirm.
1 of my radeons runs @160/250 right now while the other runs 625/993(3d core clocks of both are 800+)
So Powerplay works with 9.9
