AMD Catalyst 13.1 WHQL - Grafikkarten-Treiber mit überarbeitetem Control Center

AMD hat den Grafikkarten-Treiber Catalyst 13.1 WHQL veröffentlicht, der sich allerdings nur wenig von der letzten Version 12.11 Beta unterscheidet.

Der neue Treiber unterstützt alle AMD Radeon HD-Grafikkarten seit der 5000-Serie, also auch die »neuen« OEM-Modelle mit 8000er-Modellnummer, integrierte Grafikkerne und Notebook-Grafikchips. AMD bietet den Treiber für Windows XP bis Windows 8 und auch für Linux in 32- und 64-Bit-Varianten an. Im Vergleich zum Catalyst 12.10 WHQL führt AMD viele Leistungs-Verbesserungen an, allerdings sind diese auch schon in den Beta-Versionen des Catalyst 12.11 enthalten.

Wirklich neu ist aber das überarbeitete Catalyst Control Center, das nun alle für Spiele wichtigen Einstellungen wie Profile, Texturfilter, Kantenglättung oder Tessellation in einem übersichtlichen Fenster ermöglicht. Wie üblich werden auch diesmal wieder mehrere Fehler im Treiber behoben.
