Re: AMD M8x Drivers

2009-09-28, 2:58 AM

The M8X Discrete driver .inf (C7_87975.inf) only mentions

"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series" = ati2mtag_M72_PRAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_95C4&SUBSYS_210417AA

It did NOT work for me when I tried to install it for my FireGL v5700 (identified as HD3650 before the correct driver was applied)

 

I had to install the M8X Switchable to get the right driver for v5700

Has anyone one experienced BSODs with this driver in W7?

 

The old driver for Vista would constantly blue screen.

 

I modified the system version number in the inf of the "AMD M8x Driver" and installed it on Win2k8 x64 successfully.

Hopefully, the BSOD issues have been fixed.

There don't seem to be any battery life increase when switched to integrated vs discrete... somehow i still get max 4 hrs with my 6 cell on my T400, even with battery plan on "power saver"

The Switchable drivers seem gone. I only see "ATI Display drivers" now.... Any comments?

probably pulled cause they were riddled with bugs, just like power manager 3.0
