Thread: The State of ATI Readon from my perspective




  1. #1

    Default

    Well I may have stated in my reviews that I have been happy with ATI Readons based on 9500 and 9700 Cores. This has been true untill now

    After some in depth testings and stability runs, I have found ATI to have gotten quite a big hole in their 9xxx series.

    First off the new ATI 3.0a Cat driver series. Well all i can say is this needs a whole new approach.

    After running these drives for over 1 week now I have had nothing but problems. Benchmarks run fine, its when you actually start to play games for hours on end.

    I have had system resets, hard lockups and data corruptions.

    From my prospective ATI needs to re-work their entire driver setup to combat these new errors.
