Co za problem odinstalować stare omegi i wrzucić nowe Catalki, ja z NGO i "omegów" zrezygnowałem po sprzedaży R9550. Na X1300 specjalnej różnicy nie widziałem, a CCC obecnie jest bardzo stabilny, i zżera trochę mniej pamięci niż wcześniejsze wersje :wink:

No tak, jeśli używasz karty z siga to najlepiej NGO raczej. To, czy są stare dla tego chipsetu nie ma znaczenia. Obecne poprawki mają na celu przyspieszenie nowszych kart, i czasem Radeony typu 9500/9700 będą miały niższą wydajność w stosunku do zastosowania nowych Catalystów. Co do "cudów" CCC - to dzięki dobraniu odpowiedniego "AI" do konkretnej aplikacji widać wzrost wydajności w stosunku do "gołych" driverów. Chyba, że porównujesz do starego Control Panela. Wszystko idzie na przód, i należy się tylko cieszyć że ATI oferuje naprawdę funkcjonalne CCC w stosunku do tego nowego "dziwadła" nvidii.

AI można wygodnie ustawić w ATT, nie trzeba instalować CCC (dla mnie chorego) a dziwadło nvidii to już nie komentuje. Co do nowszych sterów to niby i w 7.4 nie było już nic odnośnie starych Radeonów, a mimo wszystko dały mi przyrost wydajności w stosunku do starszych driverów, więc może i teraz coś się ruszy.

 

EDIT: No ciekawe, jak w mordę mają wpisane wsparcie 9500 a podczas instalacji wywalają brak odpowiedniego sprzętu.

A ściągałeś sterowniki dla Mobility, czy zwykłych Radeonów? Z lapkami jest często tak, że ID producenta lapka może uniemożliwić instalację sterowników od ATi. W takim przypadku wystarczy wgrać sterowniki z poziomu menedżera urządzeń, podając wcześniej odpowiedni *.inf do drivera (aktualizuj sterownik). CCC lub ATT instalujesz później.

heh :/ Mi te nowe catalisty wogole nie ruszaja :| Jesli juz nawet zainstaluje to podczas restartu (zaraz po instalce) gdy powinno sie pojawic okno logowania pojawia sie czarny ekran a po czasie ,ze ati2dvag sie zapętlił i tylko restart :/

Nawet sterowniki omegi robia takie kulki (oparte na tym catalist) Dopiero instalacja wersji rad_w2kxp_omega_38360 działa poprawnie i moge spokojnie działać :/ Zauważyłem różnice pomiędzy tą wersją a tamta rad_w2kxp_omega_38413 otóż sterowniki ,,display" na tej nowszej instalują sie jakoś dosowo i nie potrzeba zatwierdzać zgodności z Microsoftu

 

Co o tym myślicie ??

to jest tak ze jak sie na ati pobiera mobilne drivery to oni daja do sciagniecia program weryfikujacy - wiec sciagam inne - niby tez mobilne.

 

jak zatem rozpakowac drivery aby wskazac recznie plik .inf ?

Przy każdej instalacji paczki sterownika tworzony jest katalog temp, o nazwie "ATI" - z reguły na dysku systemowym. W tym "rozpakowanym" katalogu znajdziesz inf'a.

W moim wypadku, żadnych problemów. A modowałem już sterowniki zarówno pod XP, jak i Vistę.

 

Sprawdź, czy twoja karta, jest na liście obsługiwanych przez ten program i system.
