AMD releases Catalyst 8.8 driversBy Jose Vilches 7 comments
It's that time of the month again when AMD releases a new set of drivers for Radeon graphics card owners. The new Catalyst 8.8 release brings the usual round of bug fixes along with new Avivo video features and Hybrid Graphics support for Windows XP.
To make use of AMD's Hybrid Graphics technology, users will need an AMD 780G/780D integrated graphics motherboard paired with either a Radeon HD 3400 or HD 2400 series GPU, for extra performance and quad-display support. While no particular performance improvements are mentioned, there's a quite extensive list of bug fixes for games on both XP and Vista operating systems.
AMD has also made a Catalyst 8.8 release available for Linux users, adding support for CrossFire X multi-GPU configurations, adaptive antialiasing, and OverDrive GPU overclocking and monitoring.
