ATI has released their first official driver with Radeon 4800 support. The new Catalyst 8.7 release brings the usual round of bug fixes along with a handful of performance enhancements in games including Company of Heroes, Call of Duty 4 and Lost Planet.

Users can also expect resolved problems in a host of games as well as a new “full Hardware information” section in the Catalyst Control Center that details each graphics card installed on a system. On the Linux front, the latest Catalyst release fixes a few bugs and adds support for Ubuntu 8.04, SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 SP2, and openSUSE 11.

You can learn more about the changes and fixes within the official release notes. As usual, the drivers are available for Windows XP 32 and 64-bit, Vista 32 and 64-bit, and Linux 32 and 64-bit.
