  • Added support for the following GPU(s):
    • Quadro M1200
      Quadro M2200
  • Added support for the ARB_parallel_shader_compile extension to allow multi-threaded compilation of GLSL shaders.
  • Updated the X driver to ignore any Virtual Reality Head Mounted Displays (HMDs).  See the "AllowHMD" X configuration option in the README for details.
  • The driver will now advertise GLX FBConfigs with no depth bits on depth 30 X screens.
  • Added support in nvidia-settings to view configured PRIME displays. To enable PRIME displays, see "Offloading Graphics Display with RandR 1.4" in the README.
  • Added infrastructure which enables the NVIDIA EGL driver to load EGL external platform libraries that add client-side support for new window systems, beyond the existing For more details, see:
  • Added support for the following Vulkan extensions:
    • VK_KHR_display
  • Enabled OpenGL threaded optimizations by default in the driver. Refer to the "Threaded Optimizations" section in the "Specifying OpenGL Environment Variable Settings" chapter of the README for details.  These optimizations will self-disable when they are degrading performance.  As a result, performance should be unchanged for many applications, and increased for those that benefit from threaded optimizations and were not already forcing them enabled.

General Discussion / [3dFoin] New Fairy, New Year Sale, 90% OFF limited deals
« Last post by 3dFoin on January 17, 2017, 08:20:45 PM »

Happy New Year everyone :D It's 2017 and we are summoning the annual Lucky Pack!

Lucky Pack contains all of our 3D models: Dark Knight, Female Warrior, Male Peasant, Female Peasant, Krasue, Dragon, Short Goblin, Goblin Assassin, Basilisk, Statue Pack, The Baby, Hydra, Fantasy Snake, Saber Tooth, T.Rex, Dragon Bat, Dragon Bug, Royal Knight, Eric The Shooter, Gargoyle, Elongata, Watcher, Dragon Worm, Triceratops, Royal Sorceress, Genie, The Girl, Mushroom Monster, Royal Archer, Sould Eater, Wyvern, The Chick, Badass Spider, Dragon Turtle, Royal Executioner, Manticore, Action Hero, Mermaid, Devil Cat, Fantasy Lizard, Female Royal Knight, Female Ninja, Centaur, Orthos, Raptor, Strong Zombie, Royal Wizard, Fire Bringer Statue, Dragon Boss, Modern Wizard, Ogre, Female Centaur, Ancient God Statue, Animated Hand Statue, Unicorn and the new Fairy plus Fantasy Interface Pack (total $1008) and the price is $99 only!!! (for more than 40GB of textures and models), you save $909 (90%)!!!

Which means it's likely 2.4 dollars for each of our high quality game-ready model.

But not just that, you will get 2017 3dFoin Membership, which mean you can download all the models that come out in 2017 also. Amazing right? XD

This pack appears randomly once a year so you don't know when you can expect it. It can only be purchased 5 times, so only 5 persons can buy all of our high quality models with such an incredible price, after that, the pack will vanish. That's why we call it the Lucky Pack. ^^

Are you right on time or are you too late? You can try your fortune at:

Good luck! :D

BTW we have a new model also it's the Fairy:

Bear in mind that desktop and mobile GPUs now have the same names.
To distinguish check out device IDs

Also the score depends a bit on the CPU which has to "feed" the GPU.

A legit score seems to be about 6000 points for a desktop GPU (device ID 1B81)

Your laptop version has device ID 1BE1

Here is a score of  5702 points from a MSI rig that matches your CPU/GPU combination:

HP Omen with weaker CPU scores 3585 points

I guess the different results on laptops are caused by more or less agressive thermal throttling depending on the manufacturer.

AIDA is a read-only tool?
Use device manager to activate iGPU

Get the hybrid driver here:

Don't have that old atioglxx.dll anymore.
As i said grab old Catalyst versions from

Here are some experts for old ATI rigs:

Hi guys,
I recently bought a new PC: ASUS ROG G752VS-XB72K (over clocked edition). I noticed my GPU results are a lot low compared to the results submitted by other users. Is there something I can do to improve my score?

Somehow my intel gpu is disabled I don't know how and why is disabled. What i've got is only ATI gpu that is working except what i have told you above.

Regarding OpenGL use my old atioglxx.dll work-around
Actually you should collect different versions of atioglxx.dll and store them somewhere.

the url for atioglxx.dll download is not working anymore, could you upload it somewhere else?

As you might have noticed i had a similar HP G62 long time ago.

At first you need to install the hybrid driver from HP.
Afterwards you can update Catalyst as you like, but never touch the Intel driver again.
Go to to get a bunch of old Catalyst versions.

Regarding OpenGL use my old atioglxx.dll work-around

Hello everyone, I don't know if I am in the right location to ask for help but maybe here are few smart guys that could help me to solve this problem.

I have a laptop model : HP G72 - b40SQ
with switchable graphics but somehow AIDA64 is showing to me that the integrated graphic card is disabled.
Dedicated : AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5470
Integrated : Intel HD Graphics

But this doesn't bother me, there is another problem that bothers me which is the fact that when I install latest video driver which is
amd-catalyst-15.7.1-with-dotnet45-win7-64bit, OpenGL games such as Lineage II, World of Tanks are not working and I am getting crash with error "Service stopped working" with atiumdag.dll.
When I install an oldest driver ati_catalyst_10.7beta_opengl_es2.0_win7_vista.exe all games are working but the image in game is shaking.
This problem started 1 month ago, until 1 month ago i didn't had such problems, I'm wondering if is a hardware problem or a software problem or a BIOS problem.
I want to add that i've reflashed the BIOS just in case.
I want to add that I have clean installed Windows 7 - 64 bit
I tried even Windows 10 - 64 bit

I have got few dxdiag64 reports :

Latest driver 15.7.1 :

Old driver 10.7beta :

There are few differences that I've noticed between the two of them
