ATI Catalyst 7.1

Posted on Wednesday, January 10 2007 @ 21:28:28 CET by

New Features

This release of the ATI Catalyst Software Suite includes Crossfire enhancements that enable the Alternate Frame Rendering (AFR) Crossfire rendering mode by default so that users will see significant performance benefits across all AFR compatible applications immediately (including newly released applications, so users do not have to wait for a future ATI Catalyst release to add Crossfire support for newly released titles). Future ATI Catalyst releases will add further Crossfire performance gains once new applications have been profiled specifically for Crossfire.
