ATI/AMD released the latest version of the Catalyst drivers for Windoes XP and Vista.

The software suite updates both the AMD Display Driver, and the Catalyst Control Center.

New Features

ATI CrossFireX Enhancements
This release of ATI Catalyst enables users to verify whether an application is running in ATI CrossFireX mode. The new option found in the ATI Catalyst Control Center system tray, will allow users to verify whether a Direct3D or OpenGL application is running in ATI CrossFireX mode. (The "ATI Cross-FireX" logo will be shown on screen when the application is running).

HydraVision Support for Windows XP
This release of ATI Catalyst introduces HydraVision support for the ATI Catalyst Control Center under Windows XP. HydraVision enables users to more efficiently organize multiple applications across single or multiple displays. Highlights include:

- HydraGrid - A new feature found in HydraVision that divides the Windows desktop into user definable areas. This helps users to more easily move and organize multiple applications.
- HydraVision Hotkeys - The ATI Catalyst Control Center Hotkey Manager can assist users to quickly setup and define their HydraVision specific hotkey commands.
- HydraVision Virtual Desktops - Users can configure up to 9 different virtual desktops. This enables users to manage and group multiple applications across each user defined desktop. Application positions, desktop associations and display settings can be saved for every virtual desktop.
- HydraVision Wizard - Using the ATI Catalyst Control Center Wizard, users can configure their HyrdaVision settings with ease.

New Display Enhancements
This release of ATI Catalyst Linux introduces support for display scaling to resize the display devices that support TV timings (480i/p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p) through either digital (DVI or HDMI) or analog (component) interfaces.

Performance Improvements
The following performance gains are noticed with this release of Catalyst:

FarCry 2 - performance gains of 3 to 10% for Single card mode and 8 to 14% in Crossfire mode, with some specific configurations showing even greater improvements. Performance gains were noticed on all Radeon HD4xxx and Radeon HD3xxx products.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky - performance gains of 6 to 18% in single card settings and 10 to 30% in CrossfireX mode. Performance gains were noticed on all Radeon HD04xxx and Radeon HD3xxx products.
