Catalyst 6.7 drivers released
ATI's latest Catalyst 6.7 drivers are now
available for download
. While ATI doesn't claim any performance
improvements for these new Catalysts, the company says the drivers
enhance CrossFire dual-GPU support:
The enhanced support allows for CrossFire™ Alternate Frame
Rendering mode for Direct3D applications to be forced on by setting the
Catalyst® AI slider to the Advanced position. Users are encouraged
to enable this setting if they are not seeing significant performance
gains in applications when Crossfire is enabled. This enhancement is
available for all Direct3D applications except for Direct3D applications
known not to work with Alternate Frame Rendering.
The Catalyst 6.7 release also fixes some bugs, including texture
corruption in Quake 4 and loss of response after task switching when
running The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion at 1600x1200 on a CrossFire setup.
A complete list of fixes and known problems is available in ATI's release
for the drivers. As with the previous Catalyst 6.6 release,
only graphics cards from the Radeon 9500 up are supported.
