CATALYSTâ„¢ ATi Drivers Released Version 5.7

New Features
This section provides information on new features introduced in the latest release of the Catalystâ„¢ Software Suite. New features include:

[ul]
[li]1080p Display Support Option
[/li][li]Catalystâ„¢ Control Center Un-install Option
[/li][/ul]

1080p Display Support Option
Catalyst™ 5.7 introduces support enhancement to the display support options found in the Digital Panel Properties of the Catalyst™ Control Center. This enhancement will offer a 1080p standard format option for a displays that are reporting incomplete or incorrect capabilities in their EDID information. This feature will be supported on ATI Radeon® X300 products and above, and will be supported under the Microsoft Windows XP, 2000 and the next release of the Windows XP Media Center Edition operating systems.

Catalystâ„¢ Control Center Un-install Option
Catalystâ„¢ 5.7 introduces a clean un-install option for the Catalystâ„¢ Control Center. When a user chooses to remove the Catalystâ„¢ Control Center, all desktop shortcuts, user defined profiles, and hotkeys will be completely removed from the system. All custom setting will need to be recreated when the Catalystâ„¢ Control Center is installed once again.

Performance Improvements
Enhancements to our driver’s internal memory management bring significant benefits to 64MB and 128MB framebuffer configurations in Catalystâ„¢ 5.7.

The resulting performance gains are most apparent in high resolution, everything on modes, when running applications that use a significant amount of graphics memory. Examples include:

[ul]
[li]5-15% gains in 3DMark05 on some products
[/li][li]20-60% gain in Far Cry Regulator across multiple settings
[/li][li]25-60% gains in Half-Life 2 at 1600x1200 4xAA 8xAF
[/li][li]40-60% gains in UT2004 at 1600x1200 6xAA 16xAF
[/li][li]50-100% improvement in Comanche4 at 1600x1200 6xAA 16xAF
[/li][li]50-200% gains in certain ShaderMark tests at high resolution
[/li][/ul]

Note:
The exact magnitude of these performance benefits will vary depending on the product configuration, clock speeds and available system memory. All of the changes noted are specific to 64MB and 128MB framebuffer configurations. Performance of 256MB and 512MB boards is already very good at these settings.

Additionally, an improvement in our OpenGL driver brings a gain of approximately 10-15% to the Unigraphics test in SPECviewperf. This improvement is not framebuffer-specific.
