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
