[G3D] ATI Catalyst 10.1 BETA Adds New OpenGL Extensions

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Quote:
A new set of Catalyst graphics drivers is available. This driver is the BETA version of the upcoming Catalyst 10.1.

From this source, there are several new things in Catalyst 10.1:
CrossFire X profiles per application will now be in a separate XML file that it will be possible to update independently of the driver itself
ATI CrossFire X with PowerPlay for the Radeon 5×00s: reduced energy consumption of additional cards
AMD Dual Graphics: Possibility of combining performances of the IGP of the RS880 with the forthcoming entry level GPUs from the Cedar and Park ranges.
3D Stereoscopics: Update of the D3D driver so as to allow third party firms such as IZ3D to use their 3D solution with 120 Hz screens. Support for Bit Cauldron glasses.
Eyefinity: Bezel Management
Better GPU acceleration in Windows 7 Video Converter
Support for DisplayPort Audio (already in the 9.12 hotfix)
If laptop manufacturers allow it, possibility of installing the Catalysts on a laptop in Vista and 7
Improvement of 2D performance in Linux
Support for Ubuntu 9.10 and OpenSUSE 11.2
Download Beta

Sorry, but these are old + already posted is a different area.

Sounds like quite an upgrade. If I had an ATi card I'd be pretty excited for the final release of this.

I wish they would hurry & release the new 10.1 driver

Yeah I do not think these are new. These look just like the polished 9.12 release a few days ago and people keep labelling them 10.1 Beta. But they are not.

seems that ati's two driver teams work on two projects,

one on performance, one on functionality.

we got performance stuff last month, so this month it's compatibility.

I believe it's built into the OS so when you drag and drop to devices, it will re-encode. I'm not sure how it works as i've never used it, but I guess there are options somewhere.

These drivers provide the ability to encode on the GPU.

Seems like a really important release for some people. Let's have it ATI!
