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. ®
