A little behind its usual schedule, AMD has posted a new round of Catalyst drivers for Radeon graphics cards. The Catalysts can, as always, be downloaded from the AMD Game website for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 in their 32-bit and 64-bit variants.
On the menu for the July 10.7 release: video improvements, including enhanced pull-down detection (for 5000-series Radeons) and H.264 hardware acceleration in VLC 1.1.1 (for both 5000- and 4000-series Radeons). AMD has also enabled support for CrossFireX multi-GPU schemes with rotated displays, and it's made some tweaks to Eyefinity multi-monitor functionality:
- Maximizing a window across displays will now take user defined bezel compensation into account
- Automatically adjusts window position when dragging and dropping windows to ensure title bar visibility
- Proper dialog box placement - dialogs do not cross displays, are not hidden behind bezels, and can be designated to be shown on the users "preferred" display
You'll find detailed release notes in this PDF file. AMD only looks to have fixed a handful of bugs, but the release notes also mention slight performance improvements in Borderlands.
