Changes from the previous database
Changes to version 1.1.1.4
  • Smooth Line display is disabled for ATI cards using driver 6618.
    Note: It is recommended that you disable the Smooth Line display feature when OpenGL is configured for a non-certified ATI card that uses a driver different than 6613.
  • ATI Radeon cards are now Supported for AutoCAD when using drivers 6606 and 6618 (Catalyst 6.4 and 6.6). These cards do not support the Selection Area display fill area. If you see artifacts when using the Selection Area, you can turn it off setting SELECTIONAREA to 0.
  • The following tables display new graphic cards and drivers that have been added to version 1.1.1.4. The tables also show existing graphics cards whose drivers have been updated since version 1.1.1.3.
