Catalyst 10.6 with 5970.. help? Tags: Graphics Cards Performance Catalyst Graphics Last response: July 1, 2010 2:13 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Mezza_18 June 30, 2010 7:06:43 AM Hey everyone, has anybody else had problems with catalyst 10.6? I have a 5970, and after installing 10.6, I noticed that my performance in crysis dropped dramatically at max setings @ 1920 x 1080. I uninstalled, and things went back to normal. As of this moment I do not have any catalyst drivers installed. Should I give 10.5 a go?

So definitely test with 10.5 and check if your FPS drops or not. Herr_Koos a b U Graphics card June 30, 2010 7:52:56 AM You must have some kind of driver installed, otherwise nothing would be working. I'm guessing Windows rolled back to your previous version when you removed 10.6. Just to be on the safe side, grab a utility called DriverSweeper. http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/ Remove your current driver, reboot in safe mode, run DriverSweeper to clean out the remnants of you old drivers, and then reboot and install the new version. If your issue persists, post on the ATi websites. They need to know about it.
