ATI Catalyst 10.3 and GPU Caps Viewer


A beta version of ATI Catalyst 10.3 is available. You can grab this beta version HERE.

Here are some information retrieved with GPU Caps Viewer:

– Drivers Version: 8.710.3.0 – Catalyst 10.2 (2-5-2010) – atig6pxx.dll
– ATI Catalyst Release Version String: 8.71.3-100205a-095620E
– OpenGL Version: 3.2.9606 Compatibility Profile Context
– GLSL (OpenGL Shading Language) Version: 1.50
– CL_DRIVER_VERSION: CAL 1.4.556

The number version has not been updated and is still 10.2 like HERE.

There is no new OpenGL extension so this list (181 extensions) is still valid.

I tested some OpenGL and OpenCL demos included in GPU Caps Viewer without problem (on a Radeon HD 5770 + Win 7 64-bit):

    I began to have some graphics artifacts (missing quads on triangle edges) with the new 10.x drivers in the following situation:
    1) draw scene using the depth render-texture as z-buffer;
    2) transform projective depth to linear by reading a first depth render-texture and writing to the second render-texture;
    3) continue scene drawing using first depth render-texture as z-buffer.
    Artifacts appears on the 3-rd step because of 2-nd step.
    9.12 driver and some older versions are free from such behavior.
    It’s all about OpenGL.

    I want to see ATi fix their stinking OpenGL string. 6.14.10.9551? How about what it really is? 3.2.XXXX? Why not just make it 1337.-FOMG-OPTIMIZE if you aint gunna put in the right version string. lol
