ATI Catalyst 9.5 Released

Attention all ATI users: your Catalyst 9.5 drivers have just been released. I'm still awaiting AMD's Game website to be updated to show the info on the new Catalyst, but meanwhile direct download links with the valid new driver are working. I'll update the news as soon as some new info is available. Until then, download and enjoy the new driver release.

My X800 was one of the best cards I've ever owned. I mean I honestly felt a bond with it. Kinda like you do with a pair of shoes or a good truck. I feel newtekie1 pain on this one.
Indeed. And my AGP x850 XT is still going strong in my old P4 rig I sold to a co-worker... :toast:

Yeah, WTH are the RNs?

well the Vista aka 7 driver both support WDDM 1.0 and 1.1
so dosnt mater what you have, if you have 7 the driver will use WDDM 1.1, if you have vista the driver will use WDDM 1.0

someone at AMD is taking a nap before they put up release notes

From what i see the 8.612 that were posted on 5/5/2009 are the same as the driver build in the 9.5 set. I tried to install them and got a BSOD. Didnt bother to check the error log.

The ones released on 5/5/2009 work great in Win 7 Ultimate x64

So are the "Vista/7" drivers actual Windows 7 WHQL or are they just the vistas, because I really don't want to do that manual install BS.

Why is everyone so up in arms that cards prior to the 2k series are no longer part of ATI's main driver package? Your cards' drivers haven't changed in months or years, so it only makes sense that ATI removed them from the package; all you were getting was a shiny new number and some fun system restarts.

Nice, I was wondering this too.

Edit: These drivers are the same as the 9.4 Windows 7 updated ones released a week or two ago.

Yea that picture wasn't funny and the mod or admin should remove it. Peope love to play around with real life issues, and when something bad happens, they end up crying like a little bit**, someone remove that photo please. :mad::mad:
Those people in that photo i am pretty sure died in a horrible way, have some respect man.
I thought it was funny. Look who's the one crying "like a little bit**" now. I wonder how you can watch the news, TV, or surf the internet when there is so much genuinely offensive material out there.

Think a few people are taking that image a little too seriously. You'll all happily play games based around [modern-day warfare] yet someone makes a slight controversial joke and people get sand in their vagina.

Instead of whining, why not PM the poster stating your concern and try and deal with it in a mature manner.

From what i can recall from 9.4, they had 134

Let's pull this thread back on topic ... and try to keep it there.

Anyone find the release notes yet, or have any performance issues or improvements to report?
