AMD has just issued the ninth update this year for its Catalyst driver software package. Version 8.9, in addition to the usual round of bug fixes, includes a new 1080p @ 50Hz display mode, overclocking support for quad-Crossfire X configurations through Overdrive and OpenGL 3.0 support – which is limited to 10 extensions at the moment, but AMD promises it will “continue to expand support.”
