AMD Catalyst Receives Windows 8 Certification
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
AMD is proud to announce that it has received Windows Hardware Certification (WHC) for an AMD Catalyst graphics driver (with full support for the new WDDM 1.2 driver model) on Windows 8. This landmark moment reflects both our commitment to AMD Radeon graphics customers, and our vision of providing quality hardware/software solutions for Microsoft Windows products.
Formerly known as the Windows Logo Program, WHC is a rigorous mark of compatibility and reliability for products intended for use with Microsoft Windows. It also allows AMD to serve as an official partner in the upcoming Windows 8 release, use the “Windows 8 Compatible” logo, and offer the drivers on Windows Update.
Our certified driver has been successfully tested against several families of AMD Radeon, AMD Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), and AMD FirePro products. We’ll be able to detail these products in the days ahead.
