ATI Catalyst 10.4 Preview Driver Now Available

AMD has released preview build of ATI Catalyst 10.4, which should only be of interest to those with 5000-series cards and who play Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

The only fix listed for the driver is:

Long load times for new maps in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 when using an ATI Radeon HD 5xxx series graphics card.

If that sounds like it's right for you, then grab the driver here.

    Ah, can't wait to get in these games faster, any word on a crossfire flickering fix from these ? And yes, some people still have that issue.
  • jedimasterben
    Hell, some people are still having GSoD issues! And wasn't this supposed to be a performance release? If so, that list had better start growing!!

    I am running DX 9 because of slow loads, perhaps fix this the patch dose.

    Well if it dose what it says it dose.

    how about amdkmdap errors? or my inability to play browser games because of 2d and 3d problems? or freezing up when i alt+tab from WoW to thottbot? OH and maybe updating flgrx to include the 5k series?

    Hey, that's cool an ATI driver news thing. Instead of just nvidia stuff.
  • nukemaster
    I think I will wait for final release.

    when is the 2d issue going to be fixed? they said it was simple driver issue... i thought 10.4 was supposed to hve that fix? is it 10.5 or 10.6 now? i thought we only had to wait till may to have it fixed :P i cant sand it, that 2d issue plus the 2 monitor issue makes it really bad, the expand desktop mode causes that 2d issue to be really big, only fix really is to run at like 300/1200 (max ram speed) on 5870 the ram clock throttling is the main issue that causes flickering/tearing and freezes in things like playing HD content, or any app that causes the gpu to throttle up from idle and at times to 3d speeds

    I applied the patch, even though I don't play the game, nor do I have a 5xxx card. I rule so hard.

    Seriously though, good fix, but overal depth of the driver update seems lacking.

    Remember that this is just a preview, so it will not have all the features of the full driver.
