Windows 7: Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

20 Jan 2011   #1261

Windows 10 Home Premium 64bit sp1

Ok i got you sorry if i didn't post the correct info this should be the one now you wanted when i went into bios it was auto calibrated .

I also have the option to automate over clock etc .. but i only move the fsb up to 218 no real oc and i manualy opened up the ram to run the timming auto that was suggested and proper mhz 800

I didn't want to fidle around too much with anything hence my cpu does the job i did a automatic overclock before to 4ghz and it seemed slower so i just took it off and increased the fsb by a little

and everything is set to auto so i figure it has to be the suggested voltages given in the hwcpuz

Bumping your bus speed a little will effect your RAM as it gets bumped a little as well.

Lets see you CPUZ Memory tab, it will tell us if there is an issue there.

GTA IV (and EFLC) performance is still crap with these beta drivers. Still hoping AMD will fix this issue. Back to 10.10e for now (will try out 11 series when official released again).

Yep, good stuff.

AMD's upcoming Catalyst 11.1

[H]ard|OCP - AMD Catalyst 11.1a Hot-Fix Driver Information

(good and stable)
(this is beta for Windows 7)

AMD Catalyst 11.1a Hotfix (BETA 8.82.2) download from

Officially Catalyst 11 will be available soon at Graphics Drivers & Software

New features for both ATI 5 and 6000 series:

(enabled for 5000 cards without registry hacks)

- Tesselation control slider
- Morphological AA

New Tessellation Controls:

The Catalyst Control Center includes an early prototype of some new tessellation controls. Our goal is to give users full control over the tessellation levels used in applications. The default selection “AMD Optimized” setting allows AMD, on a per application basis, to set the best level of tessellation. The intention is to help users get the maximum visual benefit of Tessellation, while minimizing the impact on performance. Currently no applications have been profiled, so the “AMD Optimized” setting will be non-operational until further notice.
“Use Application Settings” option gives applications full control over the Tessellation level. Users can also manually set the maximum tessellation level used by applications with the slider control

The long term goal for the “AMD Optimized” setting is to use the Catalyst Application Profile mechanism to control the AMD recommended level of tessellation on a per application basis. AMD’s intention is to set the tessellation level such that we will not be reducing image quality in any way that would negatively impact the gaming experience.

Tesselation 64X:

Tesselation 2X:

AMD Radeon HD 6900 and AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series:

3DMark Vantage improves ~7%

Riddick Assault on Dark Athena SSAO performance improves ~20%

Batman Arkham Asylum improves ~4%
Crysis Warhead improves ~2-4%
Metro 2033 improves ~28% at 4xMSAA

Win 7 Ultimate x64

Catalyst 11.1 is now available,


Release notes,

AMD Catalyst

If you're using the 11.1 hotfix driver from last week you may want to give this a miss as it is older than the hotfix driver.

Anyone notice with the newest drivers if their cards are are downclocking properly? I could have sworn with 10.10e at idle my 6870 was dropping to 100mhz core clock and now its only dropping to 300mhz.

Windows 10 Pro
slight delay with new control panel

Anyone one else notice there a slight delay when right clicking on the desktop with the last two driver updates with the new control panel?

I was having problems with my system and thought the delay was just another issue so I wound up reinstalling the OS. Anyways to make a long story short there was no delay prior to installing the Catalyst drivers. Now that the drivers are installed there is this short delay again, I'm thinking it has something to do with the new control panel.

The other reason I think it's the control panel is because Windows installed some of my drivers including the video card drivers during install and there was definitely no delay when right clicking the desktop, but again, now that the full catalyst package is installed, the delay is there. Never had this with the old panel.

Anyone else have or notice this?
