WARNING 10.5+ (Leopard) users: Allthough idiots blocked the file in their "Windows SharePoint Services.", I dug the site to find they are not really supporting Leopard. They say "OS X already has drivers".

While that is right, the tool was used for _troubleshooting_ and _performance_ since video players (including Quicktime) really goes insane with post processing. Some games rely on a "control panel" (prefpane) for advanced settings too.

So, basically, an idiot company (AMD) bought another idiot (ATI) which is known to waste great chips with outsourced software... This happened. Don't take risk if you don't really need it and/or have a full backup (entire disk, as DMG!)

I mistakenly installed this some time ago before I realised it wasn't necessary and now I can't figure out a way to remove it safely, can anyone help please? I have an iMac G5 running Mac OS 10.4.10 if that's any help...

Uh,no - your own lack of pre-update maintenance did that.
Always repair permissions and run either the Disk Utility Repair of a third-party product like DiskWarrior against your drive prior to installing applications - ESPECIALLY ones that write to the kernal.

um no. lack of pre-update maintenance is not always to blame. I never run permissions repair or anything else like that and have never had a problem.

I'm thinking he forgot to plug in his airport card instead.

On the download page for mac (latest version is 4.5.6 BTW), a click on the dmg file redirects you to "http://support.ati.com/ics/support/DLRedirect.asp?fileIDExt=9f3d342d38e036a9137ef3e270d9d79c&accountID=737&deptID=894", which if on Safari creates an endless popup loop, and on Firefox creates a page that keeps reloading itself with javascript errors.

In other words, you can't download the file until ATI gets their ass together and fixes the download page.

Version 4.5.6 on 1.25GHz PB G4 w/ 10.3.9

I had no problems downloading, installing, or opening/running it.

However, I only get "info" and "3D" tools. I don't get "Advanced", "Multimedia", Mac2TV or any other menu items.

As far as I can tell I'm not getting the "Advanced" options because I'm using the built-in OEM Mobility Radeon 9600.

Anyone else able to shed some light on this?

or whether ATI Displays 4.5.6 gives VersaVision for Panther (10.3.9)? I'm trying to rotate a Dell 2100FP to portrait...

thx

Something tells me from LOTS of experience (of screwing around with my computer needlessly) that if your Mac works fine BEFORE you install firmware/software, you probably don't need it in the first place.
This won't "over-clock" your video card so why take the risk of having something horrible happen to your Mac.

Leave it alone!!!

Tried everything possible to input a trouble ticket. All 4 browsers on my Mac, IE on a Windows machine. Can't choose the "manufacturer" pull down. Can't submit a trouble ticket without this. No way to get through to support. REALLY FRUSTRATING. These guys obviously don't care about their customers.

Black screen of death:
Here is my problem. installed the card, installed the software on the CD, everything was fine. Installed the latest firmware for the card, everything was fine. Installed the latest Radeon software, system wouldn't boot. Get the black screen of death after reboot. Will only boot in safe mode. Tried repairing permissions, etc. Still won't boot. I backed everything out. They loaded the software from CD again. Everything fine. I would like to load the latest Radeon software update, but I need advice about how to avoid the screen of death.

Against my better judgment I went ahead and installed this on my new 20 G5 Imac, with the 128MB ATI 9600. Installed no problem, no permissions problems either, wow!

I tested it with Airburst Extreme, and Luxor. You create profiles for each application and then go from there.

Noticed no difference in Luxor(I'm thinking it doesn't really use Open GL)

Airburst Extreme, ran well when I set it to Highest Performance in the presets. When I set it for quality, It barely ran at all.

I'm thinking OS X handles everything just fine on its own. If you want to tweak a little this works nicely.

Hint: once you run it through the System Preferences is shows up in the Recent Items menu, its also in your Utilities folder, why did they bother adding it to System Preferences?

It's a prefpane that open up an external application. Dunno why ATI hasn't rolled it up as single thing - same goes for Remote Wonder too.

Although not stated, the 4.5.5 updater will work with the 9550 chip in the new iBooks as well...
