AMD intros more hotfixes

Written by Fudzilla staff


Catalyst 10.10c released
Just days after it released Catalyst 10.10, AMD has released not one, but two hotfixes for the driver pack.

The new drivers were ready in time for the HD 6800 launch and they were used in AMD internal testing weeks ago, if leaked slides are to be believed. However, the outfit has already introduced the 10.10a hotfix which we wrote about yesterday and the new one, dubbed 10.10c appeared today.

The latest hotfix delivers OpenGL 4.1 support as well as a few Crossfire performance improvements. Some performance optimizations for HD 6800 series boards in AvP, Starcraft 2 and Open GL are also included.

You can get it here. The hotfix is not officially supported by AMD, but we doubt anyone really cares.

Why do they still have so many problems with drivers? I currently own the HD5870 and have more problems than I should!

what problems do you have?

and this is more "optimisation" then "hotfix" as nothing was actually fixed :D

I don't know what problems you have, I own ATI cards sins Radeon 9200, and I had some GeForce. No essential problems were happened. I think it's not drivers, but crooked hands problem...

The last time I had a problem with ATI Cat drivers was back with the 9700 Pro, the card that converted me to ATI. It really wasn't a problem but an issue with un-installing the previous version per say.
I am glad AMD is keeping up with the driver optimisations.

Drivers always have problems n00b. You think nvidia drivers are problem free?

not 10.10b then, or did I miss that one?

There will always be unresolved bugs thematrix606, that's because they can't account for every type of configuration or misconfiguratio n there is on the PC market. Don't think nvidia is different... they broke my former Leadtek 6600GT color correction control and it's still broken to this day. Its then released drivers work fine for this purpose, just not the updated ones they release these days.

Anyway, nice to see they take care of this. The importance and quality of drivers will allow them to grow... otherwise it would be a slow growth.

Wow, it's almost like censorship here: Vote down any ATI problems!

What's wrong with you people? Use your logic, it shouldn't matter if I write down nVidia or ATI, you don't rate down problems! You learn to understand them!

@blobber: you don't think I know that? I still get BSODs - GFX card related. I've owned about 10 different ATI cards and about 15 nVidia... ATI always had more problems for ME. If you had a different experience, I am happy for you! But I did NOT have this with drivers, and the ATI cards are a bit laggier as well, less constant FPS, more screen chopping. But NO one would ever notice it, cause they are too blind. Get a video editor or other non biased professional in the video world and he will show you the difference right away.

And to add in, I also like ATI cause they are the underdog, and I hate nVidia for their rebranding and all the other shit they've pulled. But when any of the sides have problems with their cards, DO NOT turn a blind eye to it, but identify it. Don't support fanbois! If your 'side' has a faulty or bad product, identify it, and move on, while still supporting your side. Don't have blind support!

It's because of people like you that we have the governments we do, which are corrupt and evil.

I have two HD5850's Crossfired, and have had no trouble what-so-ever with them, Ever.

I did have trouble that i couldn't run games in DirectX11 at the start but that was because of a windows error, not ATI, and microsoft have now fixed the issue.
