ATI ROM Update Reports
10:30 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
For those that have either been fiddling around with ATI's recent ROM update or been wondering if they should even bother, Accelerate Your Mac has posted a feedback page for those using the update. The reports cover all sorts of ATI cards, from the Rage 128 to the Nexus 128 to the Radeon, both PCI and AGP. While most of the reports have been positive, there have been some problem reports as well.
Here's a clip from a happy updater:
This ATI update is excellent. It brought back all the functionality I needed from 9.2 and 10.0.4. The TV out works again. Also, before this update, I had problems with the display preference crashing in 10.1. That's gone as well, and all the resolutions are available again. I love 10.1 and now I love it even more! Bring on those drivers every vendor!And here's a clip from a not-so-happy updater:
I used the update on the retail Radeon card in my PM 8500, since I did the update I've lost all the Geometry, Color & AV controls in the Monitors control panel in OS 9.1, I did the usual stuff pram zapping etc etc but to no avail, my AppleVision 1710av is now recognised as a "Display". I'm not that bothered about it, I'm hoping the kernel panic is fixed in OS X so maybe I can install that on it.Further comments on the subject can also be found in IMG's forums. Be sure to share your findings with other readers, both positive and negative comments can be beneficial.
