/ 5 years ago

On Friday, AMD’s latest GPU driver, the Catalyst Omega, was prematurely released on – then subsequently pulled from – AMD’s website. The early release was presumably accidental, since links to the driver and to a number of tech site articles announcing the news have been deleted. But, while we await it’s (re)release, we have the Catalyst Omega’s impressive specs to pore over.

Catalyst Omega is said to raise high-end GPU performance by up to 19%, and a staggering 29% on APU cards. The new driver boasts a number of additional features, such as Virtual Super Resolution, which renders games at 4K then scales them down to the monitor’s respective resolution, making anti-aliasing obsolete.

Other video features include Fluid Motion to reduce judder and increase interpolation, Contour Removal to remove compression artifacts cleanly, and 1080p Detail Enhancement to scale up and sharpen images for larger monitors.

The treats don’t end there, though, with support for Gaming Evolved client specific features (notably FPS measure and streaming) , TressFX Hair 3.0, OpenCL 2.0, and Mantle game capture. Using EyeInfinity, Catalyst Omega is capable of powering 24 monitor arrays on 4 GPU systems. FreeSync, Alienware Graphics Amplifier, and 5K support is also incorporated.

There is no news yet on when the Catalyst Omega driver will officially be made available.
