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.

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

My image scaling works fine man. Have you done a clean install of the drivers lately using driver sweeper?

Oh and as far as anyone being offended by that image.............:nutkick:
The only way its coming down is if a Mod asks me to take it down.

I've had numerous system freezes after installing the 9.5's, from everything to playing video's to games, on a 4870. Gonna go back to 9.4 and wait till monday to see the official release.

I picked up a few more marks than listed in my specs in 3dmark 06, thats after reflashing both the cards to 735/980:D I cleared the old ones using driver cleaner and left the 9.5's at stock settings....very happy about this..now to turn the retina scalding gamma down....done and done...

Guess there's not much use installing these over the whql-release in win7 since they seem to be the same. And here i was hoping for 2 nice releases in one month instead of the regular one....
Yeah i'm an update-junkie... :)

Random lockups when perfroming find max with the new GPUtool. I can hit 860 stable on the core, but every time I start to find the max on memory it freaks and the driver stopps responding, with no reset. So I have to shut down.



This card as well as my 4850 seem bandwidth starved, and not much FPS is gained on core speed.

Anyone managed to get 9.5 Catalyst for Linux?
I'm waiting for them because i want to get my 4870X2 working at full power in Ubuntu 9.04 since 9.4 and 9.3 are NOGO...

Thx in advance.

There is a 1 in 12 chance you might get an answer. I'd say "Whoa Nellie" and wait for the download final from ATI.

the 9.3 bug is where certain 4870x2's would only run with one gpu instead of both unless you had the legendary 9.3hotfixes, the 9.5's also made both my gpu's run so i was quite happy and i do beleive they fixed human errors problem as well seeing we had the same problem

The built in 'Auto-tune' can't be trusted to find stable overclocks, Use either ATItool for 1 hour or Furmark for 15 minutes to get a better gauge on stable overclocks.

I can confirm this :) They also fixed the bug where if you were using some crossfire setups like the 3870x2, 4870x2, 4850x2 then gpu 1 would be running at lower clock speeds in 2d mode (as it should) but the 2nd gpu would be running at 3d speeds creating a lot of heat for nothing until you entered and exited a 3d application - that was really annoying and im glad it's fixed as well.

Really not impressed with this driver set - within XP and Windows 7 - HDR is far too bright for me now is almost every game - desktop performance is incredibly sluggish in 7 and Far Cry 2 micro-stuttering hasn't been fixed.

Back to 9.4's for me.

:(

SUPER WEAK!

Oc is on par with 9.3, furmark runs up to 740/1150 on 9.4 lower oc and on 9.1 oc was 750/1150...
Scores are on the down side again, equal to 9.4 or lower, slight over 4700 compared with personal 5050 record on 9.3 with 740/1140 or around that mark...

the card, a 4850...

I doubt these are final, unless I'm the only one on vista 64 with out any skins to choose from.

Skins are fine for me.

However, I did have installation issues. Setup would not detect my GPU so I had to manually install the drivers through Device Manager.

They arnt final, they were pulled due to some last minute bugs, I am guessing when they are released next week, anyone running this version will be updating again.
