AMD Catalyst to go beyond graphics cards

Posted on Wednesday, Mar 21 2007 @ 01:12 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
ExtremeTech had a Q&A session with Phil Rogers from ATI. One of the things they talked about is the future of the Catalyst drivers. Here's an interesting snippet:
ExtremeTech: So the goal is that, at some point in the future, we'll have what ammounts to a single "Catalyst Control Center" for controlling not only our AMD graphics card, but our AMD chipset motherboard and AMD CPU as well? That would be pretty exciting for enthusiasts that love to tweak their systems.

Rogers: Yes it is our goal and vision to eventually have a single UI for all AMD products (graphics, CPU, chipset), but this is of course a major project, and it will be quite some time before we're able to release such a product.
