ATI Catalyst 10.9 : ATI Radeon Catalyst ATI Radeon Catalyst Der neue ATI Catalyst 10.9 unterstützt alle ATI-Grafikkarten seit der Radeon HD 2000-Serie und AMD-Chipsätze mit integrierter Grafik. Neue Funktionen enthält dieses Treiber-Update laut den offiziellen Release-Notes nicht, dafür wird eine größere Anzahl an Problemen vor allem unter Windows 7 und Windows Vista behoben.

Auch die Leistung bei einigen Spielen und Hardware-Kombinationen verbessert sich, so enthält der Treiber neue Profile für Spiele wie Kane & Lynch 2 oder F1 2010 und erhöht die Leistung im STALKER: Call of Pripyat Benchmark und bei The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. Der neue Treiber ist wie immer bei AMD und zum ersten Mal auch über Steam erhältlich.

Update: AMD hat einen Catalyst 10.9a-Hotfix nachgeschoben, der nur für die ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2 und ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 gedacht ist. Er behebt den Fehler, dass nur einer der beiden Grafikchips der Grafikkarten verwendet wird.
