AMD Catalyst 12.2 WHQL drivers now ready
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
AMD has finally gotten around to WHQL signing its latest release of drivers. The one package which applies to all Radeon products (AMD/ATI Radeon GPUs, AMD APU graphics, AMD chipset-integrated graphics and so forth) also brings official support for the Radeon HD 7700 and 7900 series graphics cards. Although, it only brings support for the 7700/7900 cards if you’re running Vista or 7, XP users shall have to wait until Catalyst WHQL 12.4 for that support (if you are using a HD 7000 series card with Windows XP then you should probably be shot anyway).
Super-sampling AA (SSAA) is now available for DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 applications, supported on the Radeon HD 7700 series and HD 7900 series. It must be enabled through the Catalyst Control Center and application profiles. AMD also introduced enhancements for Eyefinity 2.1, including custom-resolutions, dynamic configuration changes (switching between different display configurations will occur automatically by loading the appropriate profile, when plugging/unplugging displays); Windows Taskbar re-positioning, and improvements with the Eyefinity Profile Manager.
