ATI released new Catalyst drivers. This release of Catalyst® introduces CrossFire™ support for the Intel 965 Chipset. This feature is available for D3D applications, and is supported on ATI Radeon® X1900 CrossFire™ edition products. This feature is supported under the Windows XP operating system.

Performance Improvements:
  • 3DMark2006 overall performance improves 6.7-23.7% with anti-aliasing enabled due to improvements in HyperZ efficiency on the Radeon® X1300, X1600 and X1800 series of products. The largest gains can be seen on Crossfire™ configurations and/or 256MB card configurations at resolutions of 1280x1024 or greater
  • Doom3 performances improves up to 9.3% due to further OpenGL shader complier and transform engine optimizations on the entire Radeon® X1000 Series of products. The largest gains can be seen on Radeon® X1900 configurations at resolutions of 1600x1200 or higher
Fixes:
  • Desperados 2: Attempting to play the game with CrossFire™ enabled no longer results in the game failing to launch and an error message being displayed. Further details can be found in topic number 737-23254
  • Doom3: Enabling both CrossFire™ and Temporal AA no longer results in a ghosting effect being noticed when playing the game. Further details can be found in topic number 737-23284
  • Elder Scolls IV: Oblivion: Setting the in game video option to High Resolution and setting the 3D option in the Catalyst® Control Center to Optimal Quality no longer results in corruption being noticed when playing the game. Further details can be found in topic number 737-23057
  • MS Flight Simulator 2004: Creating a flight and clicking on Fly Now no longer results in display corruption and flashing being noticed when playing the game on a system containing an ATI Xpress 200 series product. Further details can be found in topic number 737-23250
  • Splinter Cell Chaos Theory: Playing the game on a system running Windows XP and containing an ATI Radeon® X1300 or 1600 no longer results in the game failing to respond when enabling AA to 6x. Further details can be found in topic number 737-23264
  • The Settlers: Heritage of Kings: Setting AA to 4x, AF to 16x, High Quality AF on, and AAA to on/quality, followed by setting the in game video options to high and the display to 1600x1200 no longer results in black or flashing textures being noticed on the surface. Further details can be found in topic number 737-22568
  • Tiger Woods 2005 or 2006: Playing the game under Windows XP with an ATI Radeon® X19x0 series product installed no longer results in the playback of the opening cinematics failing to playback properly. Further details can be found in topic number 737-23006
  • Tomb Raider: Enabling CrossFire™ and setting AA to 12x and AF to 16x no longer results in corruption being noticed when playing the game on a system containing an ATI Radeon® X1800 series. Further details can be found in topic number 737-22811
