Keeping up with its monthly release schedule, AMD has shipped a new set of Catalyst drivers for Radeon graphics card owners running Windows 7, Vista, and XP in 32-bit and 64-bit variants. Among the new features in version 9.11 are support for GPU accelerated H.264 videos
using Adobe's latest Flash Player 10.1 Beta release, as well as improved support for their video converter tool.
Radeon HD 5800, HD 5700, and HD 4000 series owners should be able to take advantage of the hardware acceleration features in Flash. The new Catalyst drivers also enable support for the company's much anticipated Radeon HD 5970 graphics card, which was launched earlier today. No performance gains were listed in this month's release, although bugs have been squashed for Age of Conan, Anno 1404, Battlefield 2142, Crysis Warhead, Supreme Commander, Tom Clancy's HAWX, Wolfenstein, and World in Conflict.
