AMD updates Catalyst graphics software

AMD has posted the latest version of its ATI Catalyst graphics chip driver package. The new release, 7.3, allows OpenGL applications to run in CrossFire mode under Windows Vista whatever ATI Radeon X1000-series graphics cards they're working with.

AMD claimed that would yield "significant performance gains in a number of OpenGL apps". It also said the new driver package will enable CrossFire's Alternate Frame Rendering mode by default under Vista - handy for games that have yet to be coded to do so.

Meanwhile, the Linux version of the driver package - also made available this week - introduces the Beta version of the AMD Catalyst Control Centre: Linux Edition to replace the FireGL Control panel.

Catalyst 7.3 is available here.
