Build a business case: developing custom apps

ATI has posted the latest incarnation of its Catalyst driver package for Windows and Linux, and with it official confirmation that CrossFire now works on Intel's P965 chipset - for Windows systems at least.

Other tweaks include better 3DMark 06 anti-aliasing performance on the Radeon X1300, X1600 and X1900 GPUs, with the biggest improvements coming in CrossFire set-ups running at 1,280 x 1,024 resolution or higher. Doom 3 performance is up too across the Radeon X1000 range.

Numerous glitches with ATI's own apps and third-party software have been fixed too, though ATI admitted that issues remain.

ATI didn't say much about the Linux update: essentially, it's about adding support for Linux Kernel 2.6.18.

Full release notes and the driver download links can be found on ATI's website. ®
