Anybody Else Having Woes with the New Radeon Drivers?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else having any problems with the August 1 Radeon drivers (6.13.10.6118)??? I installed them for my ol' 32MB All-in-Wonder (original Radeon), and although it says I have frame rates of 30 or 40, the game just doesn't "feel" right. Not only is everything jerky like I'm having low frame rates, but everything seems like it's playing out in slow motion. Anybody else? Comments/ideas?KennethEDIT: I'm also thinking about getting myself a new graphics card to temporarily fix up my problems until next year when I build a new system. Anybody using the Radeon 9000? I'd get the 9700 but that's a pretty good ways out of my budget. Another question, do the new Radeons have an "All in Wonder," or, TV Tuner version? Thanks... and sorry as I have just realized this would be better off in the Hardware forum.

A great big howdy from one Radeon owner to another!I downloaded the "newest" August 1 drivers when they were released and have had no issues to date. The key to my success (IMO)is to download a Radeon tweaker to tweak up the "higher" setting the control panel won't let you access. My personal favorite is Rage3D Tweaker which can be found HEREIf you need help tweaking, drop me a note or post in this thread.Good luck!Mike

Thanks!specs:P41.5GHZ512MB RAM40GB HDDATI RADEON VE 64MB DDR Windows XP PROWhen i tried updating to the latest drivers, I got the same 'jerky' feeling to things. The FPS counter was at 25FPS (locked @ 25) but the scenery was still jerky

Just to let you guys know I'm still here and following the thread. Thanks for the link to the tweaker, I've personally never really been much of a tweaker of graphics cards so any help in the area is appreciated. I'll probably get ahold of that tonight (at work right now) and twiddle around with it.Thanks guys, keep me posted on your experiments with the tweaker! If you have any settings or anything feel free to email them to kenneth@pardue.com.Best regards,Ken

Gave Rage3D a try. WOW! I have yet to check to see if I still get panel blurring with FSAA, but the Overcast coulds work pefectly now and things seem to run faster in general.
