Catalyst gets downloaded 2 to 3 million times

Written by Fuad Abazovic

In a month


We've asked Terry Makedon, the Catalyst guy, about the number of catalyst driver downloads per month he estimates, and we got a nice number. Terry told Fudzilla that each month two to three million people download the Catalyst drivers.

In 2007, we are talking about 30 million downloads of this famous driver. He also said that the driver downloads directly depend on performance improvements, new features and bug fixes that ATI has in its monthly revision. It is quite logical that if people know that there are new features, or that the driver will solve a bug or run faster, they will download more frequently.

We still remember when we first saw the Catalyst control center, and we can tell you that DAAMIT has come a long way from this first framework driver to now.
