AMD to update Catalyst drivers more often

Posted on Thursday, May 31 2012 @ 20:23:38 CEST by

AMD announced they will no longer release Catalyst WHQL drivers on a monthly base. The driver team will focus harder on quality and improvements rather than sticking to a fixed release schedule.
- AMD will end monthly Catalyst driver releases starting with Catalyst 12.5 (which won’t exist). They have decided to focus harder on quality and improvements vs regular updates which may not bring many new things. This way there will be no need for two separate driver development paths every month: one to get the official WHQL driver and another that keeps doing the regular driver development.

- We should expect more “hot fixes” and “preview drivers” when new games are released or urgent fixes are required.

- There is a beta driver we are testing right now that fixes the Eyefinity tearing on the third monitor when mixing outputs. I have verified that it works with Southern Islands based cards, so I don’t know if it will work with previous cards. Anyway, if no major issues are found, this driver should be publicly available next week.
