AMD releases ATI Catalyst update

Tweaks galore

AMD's ATI division has released the latest version of its Catalyst drivers package, implementing the usual array of tweaks to boost game framerates and benchmark scores: gains of 6.7-15.8 per cent can be seen in 3DMark06 and 9.7-10.5 per cent in 3DMark05, the company claimed.

ATI also pointed to a speed boost for folk doing CrossFire on Intel 965 chipset-based mobos, and the addition of high-dynamic range anti-aliasing for The Elder Scrolls Oblivion.

Catalyst 6.10 for Windows also now officially supports the version of Stanford University’s Folding@Home protein-folding modelling application that can offload tasks from the CPU to the GPU.

The Linux version of Catalyst 6.10, version 8.30.3, incorporates a number of bug fixes for TV playback related issues.

Both versions of the driver package can be found here. ®
