    Yeh, I was thinking that. I guess I will check when I get home if they added anything to it.

    Autotune has been in Overdrive for.... a very long time as far as I'm aware.

    Yep, they've done something to Overdrive. For starters they've added some weird screensaver thing while its testing the clocks. It also takes a lot longer so i guess its a bit more accurate.

    I think it errs on the side of caution now, dropping 10mhz below what i know my card to run safely at.

    Re: News - AMD launches Catalyst 9.4 drives, introduces auto-tune to ATI Overdrive

    Hopefully it will be more accruate as when i ran it on Auto not long after I got my 4870 a couple of months ago it kept increasing and passing the clocks for core and memory up to the end of the scales.

    'Wow what a great card!' I thought, needless to say in real world applications it didnt last long at those speeds and I backed it down to stock. Will have another go tonight.

    Re: News - AMD launches Catalyst 9.4 drives, introduces auto-tune to ATI Overdrive

    Just had a bash. My card is a standard 4850. Fan speed locked at 100&#37; it is like a jet engine.

    My previous auto-tune results were Core: 690MHz and Memory: 1185MHz

    This time when I performed it, it really took a lot longer. This time it clocked in at Core: 690MHz and Memory: 1160MHz.

    Just hope these work better than the last cats in win 08
    Someone left a note on a piece of cake in the fridge that said, "Do not eat!". I ate the cake and left a note saying, "Yuck, who the hell eats paper ?

    Re: News - AMD launches Catalyst 9.4 drives, introduces auto-tune to ATI Overdrive

    lets hope these drivers acually work well.
    recently ati drivers suck.
    every so often the screen will just randomly go blank for a few seconds and then come back.
    i first noticed it on the college machines. i assumed it was the mirror driver that is used by ABtutor control.
    but then it happened on my parents computer which also uses a ati card. all the new dell's at college use ati cards.

    i will update the drivers on my parents machine soon and find out if they are any better.

    Never had a problem like that, either with my x1950xt or the 4870. Have been constantly running the newest drivers for the last 6 months or so.
