Another month, another batch of Catalyst drivers for AMD's Radeon graphics cards. This month's Catalyst 10.5 release is now up on the AMD Game website for Windows 7, Vista, and XP in their 32-bit and 64-bit variants. Catalyst 10.5 driver installers for mobile Radeons are also available on this page—just be sure to pick "Mobility Radeon" in the middle column.
AMD names two major additions in this release: compatibility with 120Hz displays for systems with Radeon HD 3000- or 4000-series cards, plus enhancements to the Catalyst Control Center's Overdrive feature. Overdrive now has "full support for over-clocking functionality on supported ATI Radeon HD graphics accelerators connected to multiple display configurations," the company says.
According to the official release notes (PDF), the Catalyst 10.5 drivers also fix bugs in a decent number of games: Alien vs. Predator, Bad Company 2, Empire: Total War, IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946, Mass Effect 2, Napoleon: Total War, Resident Evil 5, and Splinter Cell Conviction. Some fixes only apply to certain versions of Windows, though. Check out the PDF for more details.
