No way! They finally integrated Avivo into the Advanced CCC! Looks like they might be dropping the name Avivo too. I'll be brave and try them. Let's see what they do with CrossFire. :D

Another cool feature, if you are using a graphics card on a mobo with integrated, you can now switch between the two on the fly.

Any video card and ATi IGP.

It's a beta, they aren't released to cater to specific needs. Use the WHQL's.

This version has a 2d clock "fix" when you enable drag and drop acceleration. It sets 2d clocks to 400/1000.

application install: install package failure FIX

If you are getting this error message it is because there are other ATI installmanager dwords, etc still in your registry. You can uninstall Cat by going to installation directory:
-X:\AMD\"cat driver name"\bin\ or X:\ATI\"cat driver name"\bin\
-click on InstallmanagerApp.exe as the typical ATI Catalyst Install Mander found in Uninstall A Program may just error out.
this should completely remove your drivers.
-reboot
-Open up regedit
-Goto File and export a copy of your registry. Make sure that Computer is highlighted
-Goto Edit, Find and enter: Ati Technologies. Remove all Keys (yellow folders)
-Once completed go back to find and enter: installmanager and remove all dwords that contain that and ATI. Again, make sure that installmanager relates to ATI. Next look for CCC.exe and Mom.exe. Now look for ATI then AMD (make sure they relate to the video card). With those 2 words make sure you check off "Match whole string only". Or else you will get any word that has ati in it.
-Once completed reboot your PC
-Now install the latest Cat this time you shouldn't get any errors.

For Real ? :eek:

even an Nvidia Card ?

Does the card not being used shut down ?
Sorry, any ATi card. :ohwell:

Something else interesting, when you overclock the cards in CCC (775/1125) 2d clocks go to 400/1125. I wonder why?

so there are no 2d crashes m8. the higher the clocks have to jump from 2d to 3d the more unstable that jump is causing flickers artifacts and crashes

Stream Profiler 2.1 works just fine with these FYI. I'm testing games out now, I wouldn't expect any crazy performance anything.

confirmed. idle temp went from 33c idle to 44c. most likely due to 2d being at 400 now instead of 157. load temps were the exact same.

0 improvement in metro 2033 btw :shadedshu

@Cold Storm

ATI don't actually put the CAT version until release. Even Hotfixes/betas don't usually update the Catalyst registry entry. Simply because the Cat gets it's version from Year & Month of release and it's not released yet.
It's installed ok. I know the screenshot says 10.5, but I put that in the .inf before I installed it.

If it makes you happied, open regedit and search for 'Catalyst_Version' and modify the entry to '10.5'

Like I said in my post, I did ec's post, # 10, and it just gave me 9.7 still.

It's working prefect. so no worries.

Edit
But, I did search for 'catalyst_version' and it worked perfectly. Thx

They havn't. This is a very early leaked driver. DX files are updated, But it has an older OpenGL (from about January). Fully 3.2 complient though.

Turn off drag and drop acceleration in CCC, you don't need it. It will set your clocks back to 157/300

Nah, I'm not trying to take the credit. I found this on 2 different website forums and wasn't sure by whom it came from .
