Upcoming AMD Catalyst Drivers Feature New Catalyst Control Center


AMD has made available a preview of the upcoming Catalyst Ver. 10.12 software suite, which features a brand new Catalyst Control Center.

The new user interface is available for the full suite of AMD Radeon drivers supporting desktop, notebook and chipset graphics products. With support for Windows 7 and Windows Vista operating systems, the new AMD Catalyst drivers enable stability, performance and usability and simplicity.

A third party group, Perseus Labs, conducted stability testing with Microsoft Windows Logo Kit (WLK) Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) to compare AMD graphics hardware stability versus that of competitors. Using a variety of drivers and configurations, the tests determined driver stability under extreme conditions. Notably, only AMD hardware and driver software passed 100% of test runs successfully without any system crashes or failures.

AMD collaborated with user-interface design experts Infusion to improve the usability of the AMD Catalyst Control Center and developed an entirely new User Interface (UI) for all AMD users.

AMD Catalyst Control Center is now more intuitive, with a task-based discovery model and leveraging familiar user-interface concepts from Web browsers such as a navigation bar and search field. The addition of quick navigation features and resizable interface, plus the inclusion of presets and "one-click" access to any setting.

AMD Catalyst software updates are also designed to enable users to get more from their AMD Radeon hardware, with releases frequently including enhancements to help increase productivity, and to provide an enhanced gaming experience, better video capabilities and more efficient power consumption.

With free monthly AMD Catalyst driver updates, AMD is able to provide users with performance gains in a number of top PC titles. For example, ATI Radeon HD 5800 series users realized performance gains of up to 68% in select games through regular AMD Catalyst driver updates.

Weekly AMD Catalyst Application Profile (CAP) releases allow AMD Radeon graphics users to access the latest application profiles in order to maximize their multi-GPU performance or enable anti-aliasing in the latest PC games.

The latest updates and improvements to AMD Catalyst software will include the DivX Plus Codec Pack for AMD Radeon?HD 6800 and HD 6900 series graphics cards resulting in reduced noise on home theatre PCs and an improved video experience when watching DivX video due to lower CPU load. The update will also include AMD Catalyst software support for OpenGL 4.1 enabling higher geometric precision and increased rendering flexibility.
