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

its an incompatibility with your screen. it still works well here for me, so i suggest you contact ATI support.

edit: i was WRONG. in the previous WHQL mine worked fine, in this one it does not. scaling is disabled for me as well. I will also submit a report to ATI.

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.
I had this a few drivers back. make sure you manually update your directX9, it fixed it for me. (

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.

As far as I am aware there will be no change in the files there are just issues with getting them posted to the website (like with the hotfix I mentioned the other day) AMD/ATI dont like posting drivers on a Friday anyway due to not having support in place over the weekend so I was kinda surprised they were going to be posted today in the first place.

So if you already downloaded them then no need to worry.

For now the files will be removed from the server til monday to prevent people downloading them manually. (although I am sure you can find a mirror somewhere in the vastness of the internet of the files for the people who didn't get them yet)

9.5 lots of fixes

9.5 was intended for directx10 lighting fixes and stability.
im using a 4890 and kept gettn strange lighting artifacts and distortion in dx10.
while looking for a crysis dx10 lighting fix.. i stumbled upon the 9.5 driver.
dloaded, installed and lighting back to normal with improved fps in crysis. after installing i was able to run crysis warhead without crahsing once in dx10, while crashing numerous times running 9.4.

they are legit and WHQL certified, digital signature by a ATI.

And does anybody know how to enable/disable HDR ?
thnx in advance

I don't think they forgot ....I think they found a major issue with the 9.5's they planed on releasing.

That's probably why they pulled them

it was quoted they were pulled because it was released on a weekend, and they like to do weekday releases. its been 2 days of the weekend + one holiday where ATI is located, so they should be released today. and i bet you one e-cookie they dont change a thing.

Meh. I lost two points in 3D06. I just checked AMD and the 9.5 drivers are there but still no release notes.

Fix MSi 4800 issues

9.5 Fixes the locked clock speed issue plaguing MSi 48x0 cards . Using 9.2 , 9.3 , or 9.4, and an msi card, overclocking would not work. If you used CCC your computer would hang and if you used rivatuner it would let you move the slider but GPU-z didnt report any difference on the sensor tab. This issue was fixed with 9.5 drivers!

Not much of an update these 9.5's and in most cases a loss of some performance.:shadedshu
