AMD Catalyst driver and Raptr

Recommended Posts

I installed the new AMD Catalyst video driver and it now installs a game distribution service called Raptr. Raptr also works with your system to optimize games for AMD graphics cards. So I decide to not uninstall it immediately and see how it does. It does seem to improve my PS2 gameplay a bit, slightly higher framerate.


However, I also noticed my entire computer system freezes momentarily, fairly often. I've given it a day to see if anything changes but it's the same today as yesterday. So I uninstalled Raptr. Most all of the OS freezes have gone away.


I'm wondering if anyone else with AMD cards is having the same experience?

Seems like that is to compete with nVidia's "nVidia Experience" software. It will optimize games for your GPU as well.


However, can't speak to AMD drivers/software. They seem to be notoriously bad with their drivers though.


I might recommend seeing if there are modded drivers for your card to fix the AMD driver issues.
