ATi Quad Buffer

Discussion created by steeley on Nov 14, 2011

I have downloaded the AMD Quad Buffer SDK (with sample) but I am unable to get working on my current setup.

Installed in my machine I have a ATI Radeon HD 5870 and have the latest drivers:
Driver Packaging Version      8.892-110914m-125030C-ATI    
Catalyst Version                      11.9    
Provider                                   ATI Technologies Inc.    
2D Driver Version                   8.01.01.1186    
2D Driver File Path                /REGISTRY/MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Control/CLASS/{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}/0000    
Direct3D Version                   7.14.10.0860    
OpenGL Version                    6.14.10.11079    
Catalyst Control Center Version    2011.0908.1355.23115

According with the documentation that comes with the SDK my graphics card should be supported. However I tried running the SDK sample with my PC connected to a Benq MP670 projector running at 1024x768 @ 120hz but the demo only runs in mono.

I've tried debugging the demo and it seems to fail to create the AQBS surface required to perform the quad buffering.

Is there anything I'm missing should there be something in the Catalyst Control Centre to enable DirectX Quad Buffer support?

Thanks
