Q: Official AMD Catalyst Drivers for Windows 8 Thread

I created this thread in order to inform people about any new catalyst drivers that AMD will release for our Graphic cards. I will try to keep it updated.

For now one we only have these drivers.

AMD Catalyst Drivers Windows 8 Consumer Preview

A future AMD Catalyst Windows 8 driver release that adds support for the AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series, and AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series is planned for the coming weeks.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

So here are the first official pictures of both the HD 6850 and HD 6870:

Radeon HD 6870

Radeon HD 6850

The NDA for performance tests expires on Friday the 22nd. But as a sneak preview, here's something I found over @ Hardforum.com (grain of salt as always):

Dirt 2
1920 x 1080
8x AA, 16x AF
Intel Core-i7 920, 6GB DDR3 Ram
1120 meaning 'Radeon HD 6870'
920 meaning 'Radeon HD 6850'

Comments? =)

A:AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series GPU's official thread.

pretty good numbers there, but im intrested in the Cayman series, coming late Nov or so they say. I think its called the 6950? It's meant to replace and be better then the 5870.

Hello all. My laptop used work perfectly until the day I decided to remove all the extra stuff by doing a clean install of Windows 10.  I predownloaded all the drivers I would need and then did the clean installation.  Now I have an issue with my wifi.  It randomly drops connection to wifi and is slow to start working again.  After coming out of sleep it does not automatically reconnect to the ap and I have to trigger it manually.  Separately (i think) when coming out of sleep, the login screen does not respond to the keyboard and I am forced to use the mousepad to click or a touchscreen swipe to get to the password field. What I'm seeking is an official list of drivers that are required for a clean windows 10 install on a thinkpad yoga series 20CD.  If order of installation is critical, please give this also.  I believe I downloaded everything available from the support page but just want to be sure.  Sometimes not all drivers are available when filtering by OS "Windows 10".   Thanks in advance. Laptop specs are:512gb ssdmemory card slot2.4/5 n/ac wireless 7260ac w/bluetooth

Open question, discussion, and somewhat of a problem.

I've recently been having various issues with my pc, among the things I tried to do was update my graphics card driver: found the newest driver crashed madly, and rolled back. It's brought to mind a simple question:

What benefits are there in going for the newer ATI Catalyst drivers compared to the one defaulted by windows but which hasn't updated in 3 years.

Generally what could have changed? Compatablity? If it works it works. Stablity? Performance? Heat management?

Since it takes me 2 hours to download a driver (slow connection) I'm sticking on my w7 default ones: I know they work. It does make me ask though if there is a benefit to upgading after i've got my PC stable again.

A:Windows Drivers vs ATI Catalyst Drivers

newer drivers are made to improve performance and add new features in the graphic control panel and fixes bugs and issues that were in the previous drivers.

I just installed the office AMD VGA Driver jan 17 2017 16.40.2701.1. once through amds regular install and then a second time after using DDU in safe mode.  I can now access radeon addition settings display color setting all drivers since 16.9 drivers.  I use a tv as a display and need that function greatly.  I havent been able to get it to show that tab with AMDs newest drivers at all.  My new problem is with Lenovos drivers my apu is max 800mghz constantly when plugged in. I attached a pic so you can see.  The APU going from 800 to 300 was me plugging and unplugging it.  This is an issue for me now because I down clocked my CPU to play some games and now im crashing constantly from what my guess is the APU at 800 mghz constant even with little no no load.  THis is so frustrating Lenovo and AMD.  THis is the flagship laptop for AMD right now and Its terrible with drivers.  So any help or explanation would be greatly appreciated. I just want to use the newest drivers with display color settings.  Its not that hard to ask. EDIT in radeon additional settings I always have used maximum performance when plugged in and now when I switch it to optimize battery my APU for down to 300 when in idle or light load like it should and used to with all the other drivers ive used and left it on Maximum Performance.  This sucks if that settings on optimize battery the cpu runs at 2.5ghz on high performace. &...

After I installed Windows 8 Pro from scratch it automatically installed my Radeon HD6900, everything worked fine, but Photoshop has some problems in the advanced GPU-drawing-mode. So I wanted to see if an original Catalyst driver would work better, besides I wanted to have access to the Catalyst Control Center.

I deinstalled the driver Windows automatically installed and started the Catalyst installer. It told me, everything went fine and the screen flickered as it always does, when you install the graphic card driver.
But listed in the device manager was still the one windows installed at the beginning. And the CCC won't start, telling me:

"Catalyst Control Center cannot be started. There are currently no settings that can be configured using Catalyst Control Center."

When I deinstall the driver again and reboot I have the wrong resolution (that's how it should be without a graphic card driver installed), but only for a few seconds. Then Windows kicks in and installs its Radeon-driver again.

Is there any way to install a Catalyst instead of the one Windows keeps on choosing for me?

Thanks for the help!

Ok, I've been trying to get this video card to work for almost a solid week. I tried contacting customer support, but I got a generic email telling me to disable my onboard video which is already done.

Dell Optiplex gx1p
Diamond Stealh s80 (radeon 9200se) PCI
p3 500
320 mb ram

So I was using a Radeon 7000, and decided to upgrade, the 7000 was working fine and figured it would be simple matter of uninstall the drivers, swap the card, reinstall drivers, and bang it's done.

I was using windows xp SP2, and tried the drivers that were shipped with the card (didn't work), and the system would hang on boot st the loading screen. If I disabled to primary adapter, it would boot in VGA mode on the secondary apapter. Figuring the drivers were not compatible with sp2, I uninstalled them and tried the latest drivers from ATI. Same issue.

After much frustration and trying different varibles (different drivers ati/diamond) I decided to try windows 2k pro. after more frustration and more hours trying to get a different result, I (somehow) got a working display with the latest DNA drivers from 3dguru.com, but I had no 3d accelleration, every time I tried to load a 36 program, it told me i couldn't load the opengl subsystem and D3D programs would simply hang. So figuring I might as well try the latest catalyst drivers, I'm back to square one.

In short when I boot to VGA mode everything works fine, but when I try to boot normally, and win2k trys to load th... Read more

Exact same problem as the post listed above. Windows 7 RC 7100 using Radeon x1650 card will not allow drivers to install. See the screenshots in above post for details. This is not just a situation where things run slower on the Vista/7 architecture, this really won't install new drivers beyond This is causing Flash movies to freeze after a few seconds of play for me. If you seek forward it will play a few seconds again then freeze. This only happens after installing the Catalyst driver and did not occur with the default Windows VGA drivers.

I had this problem with the earlier 66.71 drivers and I just installed 66.93 and had the problem again (I was using a nonofficial driver, can't remember number). What it appears to be doing is taking the polygons of certain things and extending them, like lines, across the entire world, they move with the originating entity, but they just extend to infinity... This has happened with both Far Cry and the World of Warcraft Beta, both of which worked fine with the non-official drivers. Has anyone ever heard of this kind of thing before, or am I alone in this?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Did you completely uninstall the old driver first?

Also when installing drivers it`s a good idea to disable any antivirus programme you are using as this can seriously screw up the process of installing and uninstalling.

I had been tearing my hair out for the last 2 days trying to work out why my SSD performance was slower than my previous computer (Q9300, GA-EP41-UD3L with no AHCI, 4GB DDR2 RAM) and realised that it was the SATA drivers that came with my motherboard. As soon as I went back to the Windows default AHCI SATA drivers my read/write speeds were about 280MB/270MB per sec. once I installed the Intel ICH10R drivers and the Marvel SATA 3 drivers, my performance dropped to about 240MB/235MB per sec (This is using ATTO Benchmark)

Anyone notice this and is there a solution for this problem?

P.S. It also appears that the Intel/Marvel drivers do not support the TRIM command as when I run a program to force this to happen, the drive does nothing (whereas it works with the default drivers)

A:Slower SSD performance with official drivers

Hello Scorpian, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might give the beta Intel AHCI SATA drivers a try to see how it works for. It supports TRIM. I got better performance with my SSD with this one.

The latest official WHQL Intel AHCI SATA drivers (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) also supports TRIM, but it not the latest version as the one above.

Hope this helps,

Hello HP community,I have quite a problem here. I game on this HP 15-r032nx notebook that I obtained about a year and a half ago (as silly as it seems, but I'm a low-spec gamer, so anything goes), and I've been vouching for Intel to grab the latest Intel HD Graphics drivers, as the official ones provided by HP are sorely outdated (a little bit over a year, to be exact, latest official driver was released back in August 2015), meanwhile Intel's latest driver update was released in the middle of August 2016. But, the big thing was, when I decided to revert into HP's official latest drivers, all my games' performances improved marginally. I seriously feel the performance could be further improved by having HP release their version of the latest drivers for Intel HD Graphics 4400, but unfortunately I do not see that for my laptop model. Anything going on here?

A:Official HP Intel HD Graphics 4400 Drivers Outdated

Nothing is going on. HP does not create the drivers for the HD 4400 graphics, Intel does. It is their product. The graphics solution  is on the same chip as the CPU\APU and not on the system board. Your best source for an Intel HD 4400 graphics driver will be at the Intel driver download website

I am using this as the ATi drivers are (strangely) not compatible with ASUS modified cars, so gameplay cuts out often, now I've installed SmartDoctor, i miss the really effective overclocking feature. Although the drivers work. Any Help ??

At this point, I am wondering if my employer's VMWare-based secure remote desktop is the problem. Is this what is meant by 'side-by-side' configuration, or is this a Crossfire issue?

I read elsewhere that incorrect or missing C++ Redist. packages might cause this issue, so I have done clean installations on those services as well.

They came out a few days ago. But I've noticed that the ATI overdrive is quite a bit different. The 10.2 drivers allowed the GPU to automatically step down to 600MHz from 750MHz, when idle. The memory could be run as low as 450MHz (though it had to be switch manually), and the gauge would report ice cold temperatures at idle. This is a 4870 I'm talking about, and underclocking the ram was almost like turning the card into a 4850 at the flick of a switch. Great for when you're not using the video card much. And some games will obviously run at 60fps with the memory underclocked like that anyway. It was pretty cool, even though you had to switch it manually.

Anyway, I notice in the 10.3 catalyst, that the GPU won't go lower than 750MHz, even at idle (even though you can set the slider as low as 600MHz). And the Memory is the same, in that it won't go any lower than 900MHz.

Anyone else noticed this at all?

I've been having quite a few crashes in a lot of my games (mostly the ones designed for nvidia e.g San Andreas, Sims 2 etc.) referencing a 0xc0000005 fatal crash. My PC does not restart, simply crashes to desktop. I checked google and it says that 0xc0000005 errors in games are usually 70% of the time due to device drivers with around 50% caused by Graphics drivers. I'm currently running the latest catalyst 5.7 drivers and was wondering if anyone knew of any stable catalyst versions which I could test? I'm pretty sure it's graphics drivers as Farcry and Half Life 2 run like charms.

{EDIT} SPEAK OF THE DEVIL! Just received a BSOD, ran the minidump through windbg and it came out as most probably caused by ati2dvag.dll :evil: Anyone who can infiltrate the minidump further to help me with my problem is willing to try.

A:Stable catalyst drivers

Ok I'm going to upgrade to 5.5, if I can recall correctly my PC problems all started back when I installed 5.6 before playing San Andreas. Will report on the situation.

{EDIT} Ok so I degraded to 5.5 and tested out Warcraft 3 (primary crasher) and have had no problems, no BSOD's, Farcry looks a bit less exquiste but is still amazing and tranquil as ever. I checked the net, apparently ATI made some major changes when developing cat drivers 5.6 & 5.7. When 5.8 come out later this month I'll give em a go.

Ok, so I have taken the big leap of faith in Microsoft and put Vista on one of my systems. After regretting the decision nearly immediately, I opted to just duke it out with my overloaded computer and try to get this to run. I have searched through numerous tech help forums looking for references to the ATI drivers, and it seems that everyone is able to get their graphics card to run. I found my card on a list of Vista supported cards, and downloaded the Vista drivers from the ATI website. After some minimal problems getting the drivers installed, and a reinstall just for luck (although the installer informed me that everything was up to date and running), I am still exactly where I started - without my Radeon. I can't even get the Catalyst Control Panel to open from my desktop (I double click the icon, or right click to Open, or go straight from the program file, and it basically just sits and blinks at me). The kicker is that of the numerous ATI programs in my Installed programs list, Catalyst is listed absolutely nowhere. Any suggestions?

The catalyst driver suite installs without a hitch on my laptop which is running Windows 7 HP (x64) but when I try to install the latest or previous versions of the same driver suite on my desktop which is running Windows 7 Ultimate (x32) the installation mentions errors and in the log it states the driver has not installed. In order to install the drivers I have to do it manually through device manager. I have used Driver Sweeper to erase all traces of the old driver files inside safe mode. I always uninstall my old drivers before putting in the new versions. Anyone know what is going on here and how to fix it?

A:ATI Catalyst Drivers won't install :(

Ok, firstly, alarm bells started ringing when i noticed that one device (laptop/pc) is 32bit, and the other 64bit. If you are using the same instal file on both machines, thats probably the problem!

If I'm reading that wrong, then sorry.

What I would do is firstly try the manufacturers website of your graphics cards for the latest drivers. If not, try windows update. If not, did you have drivers with the pc/laptop? If not, run dxdiag, save all info to text file and upload here for me to see.

May I present to you (an otherwise, most excellent find, if you ignore the nay-sayer below) the Catalyst WHQL ATI 9.8 drivers in both x32 and x64 flavors. These feature great support for newer (and older games) and a much-needed interface improvement for the Catalyst Control Center. Enjoy.

These are not leaked, and they are not exclusive. And this post is late.

But thank you for an almost excellent find.

Hey all, I've got an older 4850 that's perpetually stuck with CCC 11.2 drivers. I had issues when I originally put it in where it wouldn't install drivers at all which required a boot into safe mode alongside driver sweeper and some deleting of mucked up files in a system folder. But now when I go to do the automatic update through CCC, it says everything installs correctly but it doesn't actually install the latest drivers. And I've uninstalled CCC and reinstalled to no avail. I'm thinking something is broken deep down but I wouldn't know where to begin to look. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

A:HD 4850 won't take new Catalyst drivers

Zach, have you tried driver sweeper in Safe mode? The reason I ask is that the drivers need to be COMPLETELY removed for a new install to work correctly.

What's the deal with the latest Catalyst drivers? I just installed 4.8, and I would get a black mask over the image in PowerDVD, and Fullscreen in WMP9 when watching DVDs from my Virtual Drive. You can hear the movie playing and all, so that's not the issue.

I uninstalled them, and put back 4.6, and they play fine.

Is this some sort of protection/encryption system? If not, is this some sort of driver problem?

How stupid. (If its the former)
