No. If you have a release that is working 'bug free' for a non-game environment, then there is no real benefit to updating, unless a new driver contains a 'must have' feature.

You got that one right on the money!

But even if you have a semi gaming environment and all is well it's not a mandate but an option to look into what the newer ones offer.

One thing to do if you not sure is keep the different ones safe in a separate folder and wait to see how each newer one works out before dumpinng the old stuff. If any newer update is found buggy you can alway revert back to the previous.

Here I keep a small inventory of the older releases onhand for the older cases people ask me to debug at times where the newer ones are simply too new and no longer support the older model series cards after a certain point.

I can dump a few on a flash when repairing or updating one not connected to download directly as well as backup the ones known to be good.

Did you restart before (or since) trying to run the WEI? The drivers will install/update without needing a restart after, but somethings won't work properly without one.

so 10.10 is out and the question is - what is AMD Catalyst™ Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) Technology and do I need the driver version with it?does my 5770 even support this?

I was wonderin' about that. too - not much in the way of explanation - is there?

also this:

AMD Catalyst 10.10a Hotfix Features:
■Support for the new Morphological Anti-Aliasing feature
■Performance optimizations for systems with an AMD Radeon™ HD 6870
and AMD Radeon HD 6850 series of graphics products installed

◦Aliens versus Predator performance enhancements
◦Star Craft 2 performance enhancements
◦OpenGL performance enhancements
– gains can be seen in Prey, Quake Wars: Enemy Territories, and Heaven v2.

- when were those cards issued..?

- another thing - my WEI dropped to 7.1 - via the GFX result..
- after re-activating the Ati colour control - WEI for GFX went back up to 7.6

- spooky..

Sorry to say but this is a case of RTM as it is explained in the release notes,

Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7-releasenotes1010.png

and yes your card supports it, as to whether you have anything that makes use of OpenCL at this time, only you know what you have installed.

installed 10.10 and got green tint (checked gamma test: green and blue too much). yellow became acid green.

EDID was enabled in Color Temperature Control (because with previous drivers it worked that way, display has sRGB mode enabled because i work with graphics).

Now i disabled EDID and set temp to 6500K. Now everything looks like it was before.

ATi and their drivers...
