AMD talk to KitGuru – BadCompany 2 fix is coming

This past Wednesday, AMD released Catalyst 10.6. We looked at video performance here and flash acceleration here. In our forums we have seen a few Crossfire users of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 complain about decreased performance in that game with Catalyst 10.6. So we went right to the source, to ask for a comment on the reported performance decrease.

Terry Makedon told us this “Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We have reproduced the performance drop and will be issuing a Catalyst Application Profile (CAP) update later today to get our performance back up to previous levels. An optimization was accidentally disabled which caused us to unnecessarily stall the driver resulting in stuttering and poor performance.”

KitGuru says: You guys wont have long to wait !

    They can’t write decent drivers, it’s the same as always. Poor software support… every major title has some kind of glitch when you’re powered by ATI. Not to mention their drivers for other OS’s. It’s sad.


    what about the single gpu user and the load times in bfbc2? since they have gotten slower now with the 10.6 driver i had 5 second load times with the 10.4 and 10.5 driver but now im around 15 to 20 seconds for load times. so when will this be fix? i have a 5870

    Wish your site was a bit more friendly to Mobil browsers. Once the page loads the menu blocks the text so I can’t read anything but posts on the article. The actual article is covered up by the menu. Just thought might like to know.
