ATI releases CATALYST 3.7 drivers

Posted on Friday, September 05 2003 @ 15:09:39 CEST by

Yesterday ATI has launched new drivers for his graphics cards. These drivers work with the following graphics cards series ; Radeon 9800, 9700, 9600, 9500, 9200, 9100, 9000, 8500, 7500, 7200, 7000 and also the All In Wonders ofcourse. Here are the links where you can download the Catalyst 3.7 drivers :

  • Catalyst 3.7 drivers - Windows XP (full package 24MB)
  • Catalyst 3.7 drivers - Windows 2000 (full package 24MB)
  • Catalyst 3.7 drivers - Windows 98/ME (full package 24MB)

    There are a lot of resolved game/application and driver issues. Here are a few of the performance improvements with these drivers :
  • Pixel Shader processing has been enhanced across all of our DX9 products. As a result, certain PS 2.0 ShaderMark tests are now running as much as 12% faster.
  • Unreal Tournament 2003 performance is up considerably for DX9 products running with Anti-Aliasing enabled. This is due to improvements in the driver code for rendering character shadows. For example, the Anubis botmatch test gains as much as 23%
  • The result of this optimization is also apparent in Dungeon Siege, where gains ranging from 3-10% are observed on our DX9 product line-up, when Anti-Aliasing is enabled. Other game titles may also be improved
  • RADEON 7000 gains as much as 25% in Direct3D titles when running at very high resolution (1600x1200). Aquamark, Comanche 4, Dungeon Siege, Expendable, Giants and Re-Volt all gain approximately 20% at this setting. OpenGL titles are not affected
  • Modest gains of approximately 5% are noticed for our DX8 class of products (RADEON™ 9200, 9000, and 8500) in OpenGL games such as Quake III Arena, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Serious Sam
