I just want to get a sense of what has been the best and/or most stable Catalyst driver for BF: Bad Company 2.

I have tried 10.2,3,4,5 & 6... I am aware that they are currently on 10.10

So far I have stuck with 10.4 and that has proven to be the most stable for me when it comes to BFBC2.

(I am running a single ATi Radeon HD 5770 1GB)

I voted 10.4! :)  nothing wrong with 10.10 though

Thanks :) 

I think I will give 10.10 a go this week just for the sake of comparison.

I was confused as to why the poll and thread was locked at first, I guess it wasn't fully done. I like 10.10c, nothing wrong and I do get a bit of extra framerates.

i haven't run into any problems with 10.10 yet

Last night I finally got around to trying out 10.10. My opinion as others hear have said is: 'so far so good'.

The frame rates may be even slightly better, there do not seem to be any idle clock issues (as far as I can see) like with the previous drivers and some of the rough edges I was seeing in shadows seemed to be smoothed out.

One thing I did notice is that my temps, both idle and under load went up slightly, nothing alarming though. I think I will stick with 10.10 for a bit more to test it out.

Another plus for 10.10 is something they fixed in 10.5 and onward: no faded lines when watching dvds. BTW, the fix for that in 10.4 was to turn off dynamic contrast in CCC.

Just an FYI to anyone searching for answers...

I recently updated to 10.11 and I experienced major flickering and other issues running BFBC2. I was using 10.6 with no issues... Now I installed 10.10 and all seems good! :D

10.10c seems to be a decent and stable driver. My 5770 seems to stay at good temps as well, although it does get hotter than normal.

Still on 10.5 (from my update to get SC:C working). No issues worth reporting on my 4890.

I have the HD6850 from XFX using the 10.10e Hot fix on Windows 7 64-bit and seems to be fine but I'm still waiting for the the official release of 10.12 Drivers for the HD68xx series.
