Does AMD give a damn about its users?

No, it's not fixed.

As I already wrote for the 11.9 RC driver, for system with more than one GPU the bug still exists!

I have a system with 2 x 6970 - and I get 100% CPU load per CPU. With Catalyst 11.9

Question: Do you not test your software at AMD before you release it????

Please give us benchmark.


Here the link to RARed benchmark: MB_bench_v208

The easiest way to reproduce environment for my test is to join to one of BOINC (boinc.berkeley.edu) projects. App in benchmark designed for SETI@home BOINC project. So, it's required to work fast when CPU under 100% load too.
This bench will disable/enable BOINC subsystem automatically. As alternative, one can use some another idle-priority CPU-consuming processes to mimic required environment.

To start testing just run one of CMD files in top subdirectory. also, there is short readme.

When members of the AMD team write "Please give us more info" it usually means: "We don't care about your s**t - but at least we give you the impression that we would."

It certainly doesn't help when people claim "it is fixed".

Really because every single MULTIPLE-GPU system I have tested the 100% cpu bug remains.

 

Did a clean install of Windows 7 on machine w/ 2x 5970s, installed Catalyst, installed SDK, ran examples in SDK  .... drumroll ... 100% CPU bug is present.

So to those who are claiming "it is fixed" could you be a little more specific.  Please provide the OS, number of GPU, GPU models, and specific kernel example where the "100% CPU BUG" is "fixed".

FYI - Cat 11.10 just plain broken. My app produces wrong results with it, all prev releases at least ensure correct results...

OK, so

1) When can we expect a hotfix?

2) When can we expect a final version?


And please don't start bulls**tting us!

Raistmer,

We downloaded the 11.10 preview driver. I did not see issues with the applications i have.

How can i conclude your MB_bench_v208 is runing fine(giving correct results)?     

I see following in log. What is the meaning of theses.

ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value

Result : Different

 

Is it possible to get your application for testing?

Tristan23,

I cannot tell you time lines.

You should also remember that we are here to help each other. Not for some thing else.
