  • AMD Catalyst 12.1 Preview Drivers Released, Support HD 7900 Series

    AMD today released its latest unofficial drivers, Catalyst 12.1 Preview.

    Surprisingly, this release comes ahead of the month's scheduled WHQL-signed release, Catalyst 11.12 WHQL. According to sources, 12.1 Preview is the first driver that provides early (read: rough-on-the-edges) support for AMD's next generation Radeon HD 7900 series graphics cards, scheduled for launch on the 9th of January, 2012. That apart, Catalyst 12.1 brings the following changes to the table: •AMD HD3D technology support enhancement

    o Enables support for AMD HD3D technology in conjunction with AMD CrossFireX configurations
    o Delivers a new Stereo 3D mode over HDMI 1.4a connections - 1080p at 30Hz is now enabled on supported displays.
    •AMD Catalyst Control Center / Vision Engine Control Center enhancements – Application Profiles
    o AMD Catalyst 12.1 Preview driver enables users to create per application profiles to individually control 3D and CrossFireX settings for Direct3D applications
    o Please be sure to select the “Restore Factory Defaults” option under the Catalyst •Control Center Preferences menu before using the new application profiles feature – this ensures there are no compatibility issues between previous drivers and the new AMD Catalyst 12.1 Preview driver with regards to application profiles
    •AMD Catalyst Control Center / Vision Engine Control Center enhancements – Video UI improvements
    o AMD Catalyst 12.1 Preview driver includes user interface enhancements to simply adjustment of video color and video quality controls
    •Performance highlights of the AMD Catalyst 12.1 Preview driver (in addition to the AMD Catalyst 11.11c performance driver)
    o Improves performance (10%) in Elder Scrolls: Skyrim when Multi-Sample Anti-Aliasing is enabled on the AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series for single GPU and AMD CrossFireX configurations
