ATI ha reso disponibili, nella giornata odierna, nuove versioni dei propri driver Catalyst per schede video della famiglia Radeon. Di seguito i link per i download delle versioni Windows a 32 e a 64bit, oltre che dell'AVIVO Video Converter compatibile con i nuovi driver:

Catalyst 6.11 Windows 2K-XP + Catalyst Control Center

Catalyst 6.11 XP x64 + Catalyst Control Center

ATI AVIVO Video Converter

La caratteristica più interessante di questi driver è data dal supporto a configurazioni Crossfire via software ottenute con due schede video Radeon X1900 e Raden X1950, in qualsiasi combinazione, utilizzando i sistemi operativi Windows XP opure Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, fatta eccezione per il modello Radeon X1950PRO. Non è chiaro al momento attuale se questo implichi la possibilitò di utilizzare due schede video Radeon, in collegamento Crossfire software, con chipset non dotati di supporto Crossfire di default.

Di seguito un estratto dalle note fornite a corredo dei driver:

Performance Improvement

A performance increase is noticed in Call of Duty 2. Performance improves as much as 12.5% at 19x12 settings and as much as 10.5% at 12x10 settings on X1900 Software Crossfire configurations. Largest gains seen with 4xAA enabled.
