intro


Ab sofort steht der Catalyst 6.12 zum Download bereit. Diesmal hat ATI sich nicht sehr viel auf die Leistung konzentriert, sondern diverse Bugs in Spielen und dem Control Center behoben. Darunter z.B. in den Spielen Black&White 2 sowie Neverwinter Nights.
Technic3D schaut sich dennoch die Leistung des wohl letzten Catalyst Treiber im Jahre 2006 an. Der Catalyst 6.12 steht für Microsoft Windows XP, XP 64bit, Linux und Linux x86_64 zur Verfügung. Geeignet ist er für alle Radeon Modelle ab der 9500er Serie. Neu hinzugekommen ist die DirectX Videobeschleunigung für CrossFire (Dual-VGA) Systeme.
Laut den Treiberenwicklern von ATI-AMD sollten Anwender welche Folding@Home der Universität Stanford auf der Radeon Grafikkarte nutzen, nicht auf den Catalyst 6.12 umsteigen, da es damit noch Probleme gibt. Bis zur nächsten Treiberversion soll dies jedoch behoben sein.
