ATI Catalyst 10.2 Win 7 Driver Analysis

"To be honest, I don't even have to look at the performance of these drivers to recommend them. If you saw our article regarding upcoming features the other day called Future ATI Catalyst Drivers - Why you should be excited!, you'll know why you should upgrade if there's even no performance upgrades this month.

Fortunately, outside the fancy new features that the ATI driver team has given us, there are some performance improvements. So let's have a quick look at them before checking out our testbed and getting stuck into the performance numbers."

ATI Catalyst Drivers - Why you should be excited!

"In the January Catalyst drivers I made a note that Terry Makedon said on Twitter "10.1 is just a standard release to fix up some bugs, but 10.2 and 10.3 will indeed have some major new features".

To be honest, I was a bit skeptical that "Major New Features" were going to be a bit of marketing fluff. However, I'm here today to tell you it's not. ATI are introducing what they call the 1-2 Punch for the Catalyst 10.2 and 10.3 driver set.

A Look at ATI's Catalyst 10.2 & 10.3 Drivers

"With its upcoming 10.2 and 10.3 Catalyst graphics drivers, AMD is making sure it goes well beyond the hardware to deliver the ultimate PC experience, whether or not it includes gaming. We're taking a look at all of the features on the horizon, including game profiles, CrossFireX and Eyefinity improvements, mobile drivers and more."

Open-Source ATI Evergreen Support

"Months after the ATI Radeon HD 5000 series (known by the "Evergreen" family codename) was introduced, AMD has finally pushed out the first bits of open-source code. This morning if you are to checkout the xf86-video-ati DDX driver branch there is initial user-space mode-setting support for the Radeon HD 5000 series GPUs. The ATI kernel mode-setting support that we really care about these days is also about done, but it isn't yet published.

ATI Catalyst 10.1 Driver Analysis

"Let's not kid ourselves. Just days before the end of the month comes to a close, ATI squeezes out a Catalyst driver, I think it's safe to say that this driver is more so to keep the flawless monthly release record than to bring massive improvements or new features.

The driver seems so rushed out that someone forgot to update the Catalyst Control Center to actually say 10.1. Instead it still says 9.12. Terry Makedon @ CatalystMaker even said on Twitter that this is just a standard release driver to fix some bugs."
