ATI Catalyst 10.8b Hotfix

I HEARD YOU LIKE UPDATES: 10.10 works perfect, I tested every one of the stuck games, and a couple of the regular.

UPDATE2: Get the 10.9 hotfix, so you can have any other fixes that are in 10.9 itself. This list here still applies, since both 10.9 and the HF were made before I even started this list. Hopefully they figure it out for 10.10.

UPDATE: They’re looking into it. (Cool! Terry saw me.)

Time for some testing. This is for those that had the 2nd crossfire gpu stay in 2d speeds.

Download 10.8b hotfix from AMD. (Older, if you don’t like 10.9 for whatever reason.)

I’ll update this as I go. You can open and close one of the ‘ok’ games to get the core back into 2d no problem.

  1. 1 I didn't bother to try this hotfix with all the problems said at 5:01 pm on September 13th, 2010:

    yet. but from previously, all DX10 games had the 2nd gpu stuck at 2d in game but dx9 games work fine – this is from 10.5a. I thought they were going to fix that issue in 10.8b..not sure what they have done but the issue is still around for most.

    that’s what this is, are you sure it was dx10 stuck? all i saw was dx9 games stuck in 2d, which was a much bigger problem than dx10 (less dx10 games exist)
    this hotfix does fix that, with specific games staying in 3d after exit (workaround that by opening & closing a working game)
    try the hotfix, unless you have other problems?

    @terry, sapphire 4870×2 stock/reference, vista64 sp2
    why not have the 2nd core blindly follow what the 1st is doing by default, then have overrides for specific games like blur that are better without CF?

    ME=from Tweaktown, VGA Forums, AMD Forums,misc. others.

    Thanks man! – u saved me! – new computer with this VERY new ATI 5770 and you cant run counter strike with the up to date driver WTF!”? but now it works yiihaa…

    Thanks a lot ;)

    @themonk, the old CS with opengl? there is a known issue where games back then were poorly coded, expecting a maximum length of text that lists the ‘gl extensions’ from the driver…. well, after so many years, that list is too big, so the driver needs to do workarounds, while proper app coding should only request the specific extensions it needs
