About 3 months ago I downloaded a Catalyst update and after that I started getting horrible tearing with my graphics. For example I'll look at a planet in a space game and I'll see a big jagged chunk of terrain missing and I can see through to the opposite side of the planet (never normally visible).


Graphics Card
- ATi Radeon 4300/4500 series
- no over-clocking

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
Driver Provider: Advanced Micro Devices Inc

Date downloaded 5/4/12

Driver version: 8.961.0.0

Driver signer: microsoft windows hardware compatibility publisher


I got it from the latest Catalyst link.


I tried reverting to previous driver but it didn't work.


I've installed another update since then but that didn't fix it.

Operating System
Vista 32 bit SP 2.

Issue Details
It has occurred in Eve Online, The Secret World and Everquest 2. With graphics settings on minimum.

CPU Details
AMD 9150e Quadcore 1.8Ghz

It has a Packard Bell flatscreen monitor.

I have a Radeon 6870 in Crossfire and I do see the screen tearing.
I was gonig to file a seperate ticket for that but you beat me to the punch.
At least we can confirm the screen tearing is also seen in Crossfire mode.

It's kinda annoying as I see it alot when daylight hiit the building you may even
get missing textures or flashing ones.

Anyone add me to this complain for The Secret World.
And there already two other game breaking bugs in
Crossfire mode causing terrible graphical corruption issues.

We need a hotfix out for this game pronto!
