How do you tell what drivers you have/??

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Ashton Crusher, Jan 9, 2007.

  1. I bought a Sapphire X1900GT and after installing the drivers it
    appears it has driver versions 6.14 from the install disk that came
    with it. Yet when I go to the ATI web support site, they list the
    newest drivers as ver 6.12 and just came out Dec 13th. I bought the
    card earlier then the 13th, how can it have shipped with newer drivers
    then ATI just posted??? If I upgrade to the "newer" drivers according
    to the ATI site will I really be going backwards? Plus the Cat
    Control center I have now shows a version of something like
    but the ATI site indicates the new ones are the 6.12. I don't see any
    logic in how I can compare the two version numbers.

  2. Catalyst release numbers are dates more or less not versions. 6.12 is
    DEC.06. Last year they put out a bonus 5.13. Their won't be a 6.14 release.
    Individual components have their own version numbers.

    If you didn't delete it, look in C:\ati\support. If you have the Cat6.12
    release you'll see a folder named. 6-12_xp_dd_ccc_wdm__enu_38463. If that's
    not what you see, what is similar to it? Basically I just install releases
    so not familiar with the version numbers.
