Hi all. I'm trying to update my 6950 to the latest set of Catalyst stuff so I can do accelerated Photoshop OpenGL, but the driver doesn't successfully update.
I've tried (a couple of times) downloading and installing the latest Windows 8 64-bit 6900-series driver package, Catalyst 12.10, from AMD. The installer appears to run normally, and it says it's installed successfully, but even after a restart Device Manager lists my current driver as 8.97, and Photoshop still doesn't recognize the card.
This Photoshop issue is almost always a problem with an out-of-date driver, according to the Internet.
I tried uninstalling my old driver with Driver Fusion, which seemed to work (the resolution was wrong after a restart), but after reinstalling the driver I'm still at 8.97.
Nope. Do you think it'd make any difference what version I'm trying to upgrade to?
Note: Also, Catalyst, isn't showing me any graphics options right now. It used to have tons of stuff; now it only has CPU options.
Oh, right. Tom's reminder. I installed a Windows Update item that had something to do with AMD and the problem went away: my driver now displays the correct number, and Catalyst has all the graphics options again.
Thanks for your attention, anyway. Free Best Answer!
