In addition to ring bus, each memory channel now has the granularity of bits, which improves memory efficiency when performing small memory requests. Also which card do you have that you know this works for? I’ll fix those, but I really don’t think those things will have any effect. Helpful thread, but can you please expand on what lead you to this particular driver over the current amd. ATI has taken this step with the expectation that future 3D software will be more pixel shader intensive. Results 1 to 10 of I have the same question Show 0 Likes 0.

This refers to ATI’s plan to boost the efficiency of their GPU, instead of going with a brute force increase in the number of processing units. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers. This design allows memory accesses to be far quicker though lower latency by virtue of the smaller distance afi signals need to move through the GPU, and by increasing the number of banks per DRAM. Also which card do you have that you know this works for? Thanks a bunch Anyone with an ATI Driver Problem like this should try this first, but you got forgot to mention to uninstall your current driver then install the one you put up in the link.


I know there is an issue with X series cards resolved by using Cat 7. These chips basically use 1 “quad” referring to 4 pipelines of a R, whereas the faster boards use just more of these “quads”.

The R is the foundation for a line of DirectX 9. This was the only way I got it to work.

This site works best with JavaScript enabled. The Radeon X video cards, that included a R, were released with a delay of several months because ATI engineers discovered a bug within the GPU in a very late stage of the development. The X series has two parts, which are quite different with regards to performance. I have a long way to go to figure out everything I need to know about technical computer stuff. I just ran GLIntercept on it and had tons of errors: The primary change between R and R is that ATI changed the pixel shader processor to texture processor ratio.

This series is the budget solution of the X series and is based on the RV core. The chips have 4 texture units4 ROPs4 pixel shadersand 2 vertex shaderssimilar to the older X – X cards.

After searching high and low without any luck, I wonder if one of you experts can advise if there is any display driver that is compatible with my graphic card but also with OpenGL support, before I invest in a new laptop? I mean, it is to the point where I just want to tell everyone “screw ATI, their stuff doesn’t work”.

I uploaded a new version that fixes all GL errors, same link as above, but the appearance is the same. Will it work for the Radeon Xpress series? Pixel format not accelerated at org. This provides temporary storage necessary to keep the pipelines fed by having work available as much as possible. At the end of the pipeline, the texture addressing processors are now decoupled from pixel shader, so any unused texturing units can be dynamically allocated to pixels that need more texture layers.


When one of the shader quads becomes idle, due to a completion of a task or waiting for other data, the dispatch engine will assign the quad with another task to do in the meantime, with the overall result being a greater utilization of the shader units, theoretically.

Soory, look under “integrated motherboard graphics”. Please enter a title.

Anyone with an unsolved case like this willing to test this out? A lot of users will understandably be reluctant to go back that far unless they have to. Support in this table refers to the most current version.

You can try to manually select your drivers here: Again, the smaller cores such as RV and RV receive cutbacks due to their smaller, less costly designs. Opngl I tried testing with an ATI
