ATI has just released this year's final version of its Catalyst driver package. As you might already know from our previous BETA release post, with the release of ATI Catalyst 8.12 users can now unlock the potential of accelerated applications enabling ATI Stream technology for various ATI Radeon graphics processors. This release also adds Stream technology to ATI's AVIVO Video Converter and many performance improvements.

Looks like the release notes show more improvements beyond what the Betas had. Going to give these a shot now.

Let us know what you find. I was expecting to see the official 8.12 to just be a more stable version of RC3. Now i just can't wait to get home and get some tests done.

I always do this (i use driver cleaner pro), issue still not resolved and there are quite a few people starting to post on the ATI forums with similar issues with 3870 based cards both in single and crossfire configurations.

Seems that Windows is detecting an incompatability between the new drivers and my GPUs :(

For those of you with the AGP version of the 3850 and want to get these and 8.11's to install, this is whatcha have to do...

1.) Extract the driver package, you can run it as it'll fail anyway...



2.) Open the file INSTALL.ini in your ATi directory e.g. C:\ATI\SUPPORT\8-12_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_72271\Driver\

3.) Find the following text 0x9505:0x25421002 and replace it with 0x9515:0x0028174B - save!

4.) Now, in the same directory, open the CX_72271.INI file and do the same as option 3. Replace 0x9505:0x25421002 with 0x9515:0x0028174B.

5.) Now go to the XP_INF folder and open the CX_72271.INF file and find "ATI Radeon HD 3850" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9505&SUBSYS_25421002 entry and replace 9505&SUBSYS_25421002 with 9515&SUBSYS_0028174B.

6.) Once you've made all these changes, don't extract the files again as your efforts will be other written, just run the setup file that's already been extracted.


This is actually the 8.12 RC3.

Now it should install flawlessly on your 3850 AGP - if people want me to do earlier cards PM and I'll do what I can.

Enjoy!

By all means, share the knowledge. If it's OCN then I won't bother as I was going to, but I'm lazy. ^^

I've installed this fine. But where is the encoding feature?

The Avivo Package on the site released today still says only compatible with x1k series.

The Avivo package is available from the same page you download the drivers.. just further down the page. It's compatible with the 4800, you might be looking at an older archived version.

Well it gives a release date of today. I'm looking at this page

http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista64/common-vista64

Also, I've just tried it (and as it has with every previous catalyst version), instant crash. (tried to convert xvid file to an ipod video file)
