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. ®
