ATI, VIA update drivers
ATI and VIA both served up new drivers today. ATI formally released its Catalyst 4.8 drivers, which are still one release shy of the beta 4.9s everyone's using for DOOM 3. According to this story over at The Inquirer, the 4.9s could be released in September with an all-new user interface. The new UI will apparently give users a 3D preview of image quality settings, simplify configuring multimonitor systems, and support multiple skins.
On the chipset front, VIA's Hyperion 4.53 drivers are now available for download. It's been more than eight months since VIA's last Hyperion release, and according to the release notes, there are new versions of both the chipset and AGP drivers.
