ATi Catalyst 5.7 Drivers Released


The updated Catalyst software suite v5.7 is currently available for download.

The software suite includes the following:

- Radeon display driver 8.152
- Multimedia Center 9.08
- HydraVision 3.25.0006
- HydraVision Basic Edition 3.25.9006
- Remote Wonder 3.02
- WDM Driver Install Bundle
- Southbridge/IXP Driver
- Catalyst Control Center Version 5.7

Catalyst v5.7 for Win2K/XP is available here. Notice that the Control Center requires .NET Framework to be installed first.

Performance Improvements (from the manufacturer):

Enhancements to driver's internal memory management bring significant benefits to 64MB and 128MB framebuffer configurations in Catalyst 5.7.

The resulting performance gains are most apparent in high resolution, everything on modes, when running applications that use a significant amount of graphics memory. Examples include:

5-15% gains in 3DMark05 on some products
20-60% gain in Far Cry Regulator across multiple settings
25-60% gains in Half-Life 2 at 1600x1200 4xAA 8xAF
40-60% gains in UT2004 at 1600x1200 6xAA 16xAF
50-100% improvement in Comanche4 at 1600x1200 6xAA 16xAF
50-200% gains in certain ShaderMark tests at high resolution
