All Radeon owners be advised that AMD has released an updated driver package for you today. AMD published the Catalyst 9.2 driver set for current Windows platforms and Linux.

According to the release notes, the primary advantage of the new drivers is a performance boost, especially where a game may be bottlenecked by the CPU speed rather than the GPU. Some mentioned titles are Crysis and World in Conflict. A number of bug fixes are provided for Windows Vista and Windows XP in the Catalyst Control Center, along with a handful of fixes for display issues in games and in media content like Blu-ray.

This simultaneous Windows/Linux platform release, including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions shows how ATI's GPU driver development has evolved. Linux users have become accustomed to wait for weeks or even months before seeing a driver update. This time, however, AMD is clearly showing it has the ATI driver development team on the ball which is quite encouraging.
