The Catalyst™ Software Suite 10.3 contains the following:
z z z z z
ATI Radeon™ display driver 8.712 HydraVision™ for both Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 WDM Driver Install Bundle Southbridge/IXP Driver ATI Catalyst™ Control Center Version 8.712
Caution: The ATI Catalyst™ software driver and the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center can be downloaded independently of each other. However, for maximum stability and performance AMD recommends that both components be updated from the same ATI Catalyst™ release.
Caution: The ATI Catalyst™ Control Center requires that the Microsoft .NET Framework SP1 be installed. Without .NET SP1 installed, the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center will not launch properly and the user will see an error message.
Note: These release notes provide information on the ATI Radeon™ display driver only. For information on the ATI Multimedia Center™, HydraVision™, HydraVision Basic Edition, WDM, Remote Wonder™, or the Southbridge/IXP driver, please refer to their respective release notes found at: http://support.amd.com/.
Note: Although listed in the documentation, ADL_Adapter_ClockInfo_Get is not available in the current version of the ADL. The code for obtaining the clock information was excluded due to inaccurate information being reported when the card is over-clocked. Future updates of ADL SDK will reflect this change. As an alternative, ADL_Overdrive5_ODParameters_Get() can be used but this API is only supported on R600 and above ASICs.
Note: ATI Eyefinity technology gives gamers access to incredibly high display resolutions. As pixel count grows, the graphics horsepower required to drive the displays at a reasonable frame rate can increase dramatically. Depending on the game and system configuration, users may notice texture corruption and reduced frame rates when running games in multi-monitor Eyefinity modes.
