This section provides information on new features found in this release of the CATALYST™ Display Drivers. This release introduces a new feature called Temporal Anti-Aliasing. OpenGL and Direct 3D applications will benefit from this feature when custom settings for Anti-Aliasing are used, and Temporal Anti-Aliasing is enabled. The feature provides higher Anti-Aliasing quality when an application frame rate is 60 frames per second or higher. This feature will be located within the ATI 3D tab and will be supported under the English edtion of Windows XP and Windows 2000. Localized support for this feature is expected in the next release of CATALYST™.
