Catalyst 8.4 drivers available for Windows, Linux

— 4:26 PM on April 16, 2008

AMD has released a brand new set of Catalyst drivers for its Radeon graphics cards, bringing the unified driver pack up to version 8.4 and introducing a handful of fixes. In Windows, the new version now allows users to configure antialiasing settings for Unreal Engine 3 games through the Catalyst Control Center, and it fixes bugs in Company of Heroes, Crysis, Doom 3, Hellgate London, Lost Planet, Tabula Rasa, and Tomb Raider Anniversary.

Additionally, Catalyst 8.4 drivers for Windows introduce support for Stanford University's new second-generation GPU folding client, a.k.a. GPU2. A beta release of the GPU2 client became available last week and can be downloaded here.

Windows users can grab the new Catalyst release for Windows XP x86, Windows XP x64, Windows Vista x86, and Windows Vista x64 by hitting the Catalyst drivers page of AMD's Game website. AMD has also made a Catalyst 8.4 release available for Linux x86 and Linux x64. The Linux release adds support for Radeon HD 3800, 3600, and 3400 graphics cards (except for the 3870 X2), and it's compatible with Canonical's upcoming Ubuntu Linux 8.04 distribution.
