Par rapport à la Radeon HD 3870, il y a 5 extensions en moins:

  • GL_ARB_texture_non_power_of_two
  • GL_EXT_framebuffer_sRGB
  • GL_EXT_packed_float
  • GL_EXT_texture_shared_exponent
  • GL_AMDX_vertex_shader_tessellator

L’extension GL_ARB_texture_non_power_of_two est un manque important. Est-un problème de pilote graphique ou matériel?

How to run OpenGL programs broken by ATI Catalyst 7.12+

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/06/23 at 09:53

Categories: Catalyst   Tags: , ,

In December 2007, ATI removed 22 extensions from OpenGL in Catalyst 7.12. Unsurprisingly this mashed a bunch of applications. A workaround is to put a copy of atioglxx.dll 7.11 into folders of applications that stopped working.

ATI Catalyst 8.5 Analysis – XP and Vista

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/05/30 at 08:53

Categories: Catalyst, Drivers   Tags: ,

AMD has just released a new Catalyst driver for Radeon graphics cards – TweakTown checks out performance under XP and Vista.
Read the article HERE.

While there were some performance increases promised, we didn’t really see much across the board. Crysis performance actually took a bit of a hit with the HD 3870 X2. We wouldn’t be in a huge hurry to upgrade to the latest set of drivers unless there were some fixes in the release notes for you.
