Posted on Wednesday, December 21 2005 @ 21:22:55 CET by


ATI today launched its Holiday present, the Catalyst 5.13 drivers. They inclide H.264 hardware acceleration, CrossFire support for the Radeon X1800 and HQV video benchmark support.
H.264 Hardware Acceleration

Catalyst 5.13 software suite introduces H.264 hardware acceleration for the ATI Radeon X1800, X1600, and X1300 product line. H.264 is advanced video coding that provides significant reduction in bit-rate compared to standards such as MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. The ATI Radeon X1800, X1600, and X1300 products provide hardware acceleration for the playback of high-definition content that is encoded using H.264. Using the Catalyst software suite 5.13, along with the Cyberlink H.264 decoder available from http://www.ati.com/technology/h264.html provides H.264 hardware acceleration.

ATI CrossFire Support for the ATI Radeon X1800

ATI CrossFire allows for multiple Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to be placed within a single PC, to provide superior gaming performance. The Catalyst 5.13 software suite is the first Catalyst to provide ATI CrossFire support. CrossFire support is available when an ATI Radeon X1800 CrossFire Edition product is installed with another Radeon X1800 product. Further information on ATI CrossFire can be found at: http://www.ati.com/technology/crossfire/faq.html

HQV Video Benchmark Support

The Catalyst software suite 5.13 introduces full support for the HQV DVD Benchmark. These driver tweaks provide a better DVD image quality, and higher benchmark scores.
