Zainstalowalem te stery z CCC na Viscie i po wybraniu opcji Przywroc do ustawien fabrycznych obraz zrobil sie jak na grafice z lat 90.

Zamiast czarnego mam szary, dziwne sniezenie na obrazie. Bawilem sie wszystkimi ustawieniami i nic nieudalo mi sie poprawic obrazu :(

Co się dzieje?

WarCatsów już nie ma (przerzucili się na nVidię), a ostatnie omegi mają nr 7.4.

Czy pozostały tylko oficjalne catalysty? Czy jest jakś alternatywa?
