AMD released Catalyst 7.1 software suite for Windows Vista, offering the ability to playback Blu-ray and HD DVD protected high definition content under Windows Vista.
The software is compatible with both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows
Vista. Playback of Blu-ray and HD DVD high definition content is supported when
used in combination with a software content player from vendors such as
Cyberlink or Intervideo and an ATI Radeon X1000 series graphics accelerator
(with HDCP support).
In addition, the new drivers introduce CrossFire support for the entire ATI
Radeon X1000 product series under Microsoft Vista.
Catalyst 7.1 also introduces native support for OpenGL, delivering a number of
OpenGL application performance gains over the previously released AMD Vista RTM
driver (188.8.131.52.2.1). Future Catalyst releases will include further OpenGL
optimizations to further enhance performance of Vista OpenGL applications
A new ATI Radeon graphics installer has been included, as well as a brand new
version of the Catalyst Control Center for Windows Vista.
