ATI Catalyst 10.1 WHQL with Wrong Number Version



ATI Catalyst Graphics Drivers

ATI Catalyst Graphics Drivers - GPU Caps Viewer


AMD has released the WHQL version of Catalyst 10.1 which is a bugfix version (see the release notes for more information).

But this driver comes with a funny bug related to the driver version (under Win XP): 9.5 instead of 10.1.

And Terry Makedon confirms this fact but with another version number:

The correct 10.1 is up, the issue is that the version number just shows up as 9.12 – just use them as normal

9.12 was already displayed by Catalyst 10.1 beta

Anyway, you can grab Catalyst 10.1 as usual HERE.

Obviously, it’s not a good time for graphics drivers teams (see here) 😉

    I’ll wait for ‘100mb sized’ hotfix release all in one because I don’t like download twice 😉

    The floating point bug in GLSL is STILL not fixed for opengl 3.x contexts at least. What a shame.

    Thankfully, Crysis on my HDTV at 1080P is now borderless! Runs like a charm at 60hz full screen now. The same goes for 3dmark Vantage.

    Yes they should have been fixed a long time ago.

    Mine shows as 9.12.

    – Drivers Version: 8.700.0.0 – Catalyst 09.12 (12-10-2009) – atig6pxx.dll
    – ATI Catalyst Version String: 09.12
    – ATI Catalyst Release Version String: 8.70-091210a-092787E-ATI

    @Korvin77: I think that was a typo.

    After installing 10.1 hoftix:
    – Drivers Version: 8.700.0.0 – Catalyst 09.12 (12-10-2009) – atig6pxx.dll
    – ATI Catalyst Version String: 09.12
    – ATI Catalyst Release Version String: 8.70-091210a-092787E-ATI

    LOL! Still 9.12… you would have thought they would use the hotfix as a chance to fix that…

    Oops, that version didn’t change….

    Only the CCC version changed to 2010.0126.1637.29770
