Posted on Thursday, July 23 2009 @ 18:01:26 CEST by


AMD has rolled out the ATI Catalyst 9.7 drivers, you can get them over here. The Windows Vista and 7 drivers are already available, while the XP one should follow later today.

Here's the changelog:

ATI Catalyst™ 9.7 – AMD’s first official unified Windows7 / Windows Vista Microsoft WHQL certified graphics driver for the Windows 7 RTM

AMD has delivered its first official unified WHQL certified graphics driver designed for the Windows 7 RTM (Release To Manufacturing)

ATI Catalyst™ 9.7 delivers a superior Windows 7 experience:
  • Great gaming performance – superior performance compared to Windows Vista for single GPU configurations and ATI CrossFireX™ configurations
  • Stability – through AMD’s WHQL certified, unified Windows 7 / Windows Vista graphics driver
  • Leadership in Innovation – support for all the Windows 7 WDDM 1.1 features and AMD ATI Catalyst features on the ATI Radeon HD 4000 Series, ATI Radeon HD 3000 Series, and
  • ATI Radeon HD 2000 Series of products

    ATI Catalyst™ Control Center Updates
    The ATI Catalyst™ Control Center now features:
  • A newly designed Desktops & Displays Manager - enabling users to more quickly configure and arrange their displays
  • Full support for HydraVision under Windows 7

    The new ATI Catalyst™ Control Center is supported under Windows 7 and Windows Vista

    ATI Video encoder update – support for Windows 7
  • ATI Catalyst™ 9.7 introduces support for the ATI Video converter under Windows 7 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit
  • Using ATI Stream technology, owners of ATI Radeon™ HD 4800 Series and ATI Radeon™ HD 4600 Series of graphics cards can take advantage of this video conversion tool (found in ATI Catalyst™ Control Center Basic View) to achieve substantial performance improvements when transcoding video files

    Performance Improvements
  • Catalyst™ 9.7 brings performance benefits in several cases where framerates are CPU limited.
  • Some measured examples are:
  • Crysis - performance at very high quality preset increases by up to 8% on HD4800 series products
  • Lost Planet Colonies - performance increases by 7-11% when 8x Anti-Aliasing is used on the HD4800 series products
