Posted on Tuesday, March 16 2010 @ 20:10:01 CET by


AMD will release the Catalyst 10.3a performance driver tomorrow, with a WHQL driver coming in shortly behind that.

  • ATI Catalyst™ Mobility - monthly updates for the mobile crowd
  • ATI Eyefinity Technology Per Display Control - adjust for differences in each individual displays brightness, color and contrast
  • ATI Eyefinity Technology Multiple Display Groups - more display groups to give further control of your desktop with three displays or more connected
  • ATI Eyefinity Technology Display Configuration Switching - easily switch from one display mode to another
