AMD Catalyst 8.12 Introduces ATI Stream Support


AMD has released Catalyst 8.12

The ATI Catalyst 8.12 driver update unlocks new ATI Stream acceleration capabilities already built into ATI Radeon graphics cards. ATI Stream is a set of hardware and software technologies that enable AMD graphics processors (GPU), working in concert with the system's central processor (CPU), to accelerate applications beyond just graphics.

The software package also includes the ATI Avivo Video Converter utility. According to AMD, this application enables transcoding of HD video up to 17 times faster than with the CPU alone, in tests performed using an ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card.

This release of Catalyst also introduces a new video quality control: Noise Reduction for progressive video content, which removes ghosting artifacts while preserving details of the original video. The slider control can be found in the All Settings page of the Avivo Video tab found in the Catalyst Control Center

The following performance gains are noticed with this release of Catalyst, according to AMD:

- 3DMark Vantage DX10 - performance gains of up to 5% for Single and Crossfire mode. Performance gains were noticed on HD46xx, HD4550 and HD4350.
