    ..and it(OpenGL) brakes(BSOD, wrong textures) Quake Live. Catalyst 10.5 does the same…

    What about memory clocks in idle when ATI overdrive is on? Are they still too high in idle like in 10.5?

    breaks several OpenGL based games as above Quake live, Quake 3 Arena / Team Arena and some older OGL based CAD and rendering programs.. So what’s the point of “Official support for OpenGL 4.0 and OpenGL 3.3″ if its breaks programs that require v3.2 or older openGL support :( for me the answer is to back to an older cat version of opengl atio6axx.dll for x64 and atioglxx.dll for x32 taken from cat 10.4

    I dont have any problems with games based on Quake 3 engine, my radeon HD5850 play games such COD1, Quake3, Medal of Honor Allied Assault without any problems. My OS is Windows Vista 64 and Catalyst 10.6 WHQL.
