Should I dump AMD?

    Should I dump AMD?


    Having terrible trouble with on-board video using an AMD processor. Can't get CCC to work and have underscan.

    To be honest, I've always had trouble with CCC. only a legacy version (10.2) works with HD channels on satellite in the UK and even then there is still sometimes some pixelation and artefacts.

    So, do I swap to an Intel based MB or try a non ATI video card? What would my options be for non ATI video cards? I need sound and all the HD gubbings over HDMI for blu-ray and Spotify etc.

    Any advice?

    AMD don't release new drivers and a new CCC version for Windows 8, keep in mind Windows 8 is not a final product and not all manufacturers support it.

    Decided to abandon Win8 instead.

    This isn't a rheotorical question: these appear to be a new Catalyst suite for Win8 X64:

    AMD Catalyst Drivers Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    Haven't tried them (or Windows 8 CP) because I have a new 7000 series card, which the above release does not support.

    Found and installed the catalyst driver for my video card ATI HD5570, works fine, no problems

    Was surprised and impressed that Ati had the drivers in place already

    Good finding,as you said it's only for the 6xxx and olders that's explain why today I checked for my 7970 and found nothing. At least they work on it.

    Hi there
    Quick, concise and to the point.

    YES



    We always knew AMD was an upstart co. -- it won't survive the next super generation from INTEL unless it merges / joins forces with some other people.

    Even in the early days when there were problems with some ATI graphics posing as Nvidia card "clones" :

    if anybody suggested AMD we'd say A(sk) M(y) D(og) from whom you'd get a better answer to your question anyway.

    The Cheapest option isn't always "The cheapest" in the long run -- there's far more to this than the base "shelf cost" of the hardware from the store.
