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.

If you want release notes, run some benches and release your own!
I can't. Me and erocker are too busy making porridge to sell to porridge bonkers.

Anyway, lol, I'm more interested in the problems people are having, not the performace.
9.4's run very well on my rig.

Dont forget as stated in the original article these drivers havent actually been released officially yet. Just someone has managed to get the driver links for them. So you cant expect all the change lists and release notes until it goes official.

Which we will be notified of in the news inbox. :)

"Sorry guys and gals the drivers are delayed until monday unfortunately. If you already download the drivers manually then you wont need to re-download them on monday as far as I am aware."

So I guess no release notes today... or tomorrow etc.
Myself I didn't install them yet, I don't feel like restoring some backups later. Just wait for official release :sad:

Fix for missing Skins Cat 9.5

Anyone notice this problem? I don't have custom skins.
Ok, this problem is easy to fix. If you are experiencing this problem unpack the install files for Cat 9.4. In other words click on 9-4_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu.exe (depending on which OS you are using). It will unpack the install files.

Once complete cancel the installation

Go to X:\ATI\Support\9-4_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Driver\CCC\Skins (or were they normally install).
Take note that X:\ATI\Support\9-5_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Driver\CCC\ won't have a "Skins" sub-directory.

Click on ccc-skins.msi. This will install the skins pack.

Go to ...\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Skins
and click on ccc.reg and install it in your registry

Log off your OS

Log back on your OS

Skins should be working now. :toast:

According to Spyre they are.
Sorry guys and gals the drivers are delayed until monday unfortunately. If you already download the drivers manually then you wont need to re-download them on monday as far as I am aware.
If that changes we will find-out on Monday. But these do give the Catalyst Version description in Graphics Software Section:


The above is Cat 9.5 beta. Take note that there is no "Catalyst Version" information.





This is Cat 9.5 which includes Catalyst Version information.

My 2d driver version is 8.01.01.899 on the 9.5's, is that correct? Or do I need to manually install it somehow.

so back on the 9.5 discussion, has anyone tried these out yet? Do they seem to perform any better than the 9.4's in Windows 7?
Seem the same although i've not checked the FPS differences, every thing is as playable as it was with the 9.4's to me.

No bugs yet though :).

One fix i have noted is that crossfire setups such as the x2 cards now have the gpu clock speeds set correctly on BOTH gpu's. In previous releases the 2nd gpu would be running at 3d clock speeds until you entered and exited a 3D application. I can confirm they now both load and run at 2d clock speeds when not gaming :)

Does anyone know why image scaling hasn't worked for the past two driver releases, 9.4 and 9.5 on 7 don't work, but 9.4 on Vista did work. RRRRRRRR
