AMD rolls out its 10.10 Catalyst drivers

Written by Slobodan Simic

Support for Barts, Blu-ray 3D, Stereo 3D Gaming

Following the launch of its Barts based HD 6800 series cards, AMD has released a new version of the Catalyst driver - Catalyst 10.10. Featuring support for Radeon HD 6800 series cards, as well as Radeon HD 2000, 3000, 4000 and HD 5000 series cards, Catalyst 10.10 brings quite a handful of new features and performance improvements.

The new features of Catalyst 10.10 include an introduction of AMD Catalyst Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP). This basically means that AMD Catalyst driver package will now be available in two versions, one with all the goodies that you previously had with Catalyst drivers, like Direct3D, Open GL, display driver and AMD Catalyst Control Center, and the other that has all this, plus the OpenCl driver.

The new driver also brings support for video accelearation for WMV HD video content under Windows 7, which is compatible with ATI Radeon HD 5000 series graphics cards. It also comes with Enhanced Dynamic Contrast Video controlors and AMD's HD3D Technology. The HD3D Technology brings support for Blu-ray 3D and Stereo 3D Gaming Compatibility. The Blu-ray 3D is compatible with AMD Radeon HD 6800 series and you'll need Blu-ray 3D software, 3D supported display and 3D Stereoscopic glasses. Same goes for the Stereo 3D Gaming, which is also supported on ATI HD 5000 series as well as the new AMD HD 6800 series cards.

The performance improvement list is quite long and include games like Battleforge, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, World in Conflict, Crysis: Warhead, and it is all about the HD 5000 series cards.

You can find the new driver here.

Nice

it's a shame there are so many problems with ATI / AMD hardware and poor drivers.

Hire nVidia to write some drivers for you AMD :D :P

Both companies have their own driver issues. Personally i don't mind waiting for a month for some problems to be fixed. AMD until now had worse crossfire scalling (except some cases) but this changed. Just look at 68xx reviews).
Also AMD has now 3d support like nvidia.

Indeed. I'd prefer drivers that know how to handle the fan of my graphics card...

its the ATi logo there! I do not understand why - not ATi card but ATi driver (however its mentioned to be "ATI Radeon™ Video Card Drivers") or maybe is hard to update to new logo?

very disappointed by AMD for removing ATi brand name - from product - for what? just for THE Eye of people!!!

You wish i was that pathetic. Though, being able to already top the idiocy that is posted in the GPU and CPU comment sections here would be an incredible sight!

I could tell from day one that a comment section here was not gonna benefit anyone, except for a very small few that actually use intelligence, facts, and detail in their comments. The other 95% of comments are just graffiti to me.

I come to Fudzilla for the great layout, good information, and the fact that because of the time zone difference, I can wake up at 7am and get some new reading before the other sites i visit.

I only have the one account I promise you. I fell all warm inside knowing that i was in your thoughts today though. @];-

Back to reality now... Was that really relevant to bring up my name about dupe accounts, instead of commenting on the article you read?

Doesn't matter. Just shows the lack of intelligence once again in the comment sections here. Nothing to bash Fuad or Nick about today?
