ATI CATALYST 10.2 Driver Features Cont’
For those of you that are lucky enough to be running EyeFinity this next part is for you. Starting with Catalyst 10.2 ATI’s EyeFinity will now support the use of multiple gpu’s. Previously only the Radeon HD 5970 was supported and that was only in a very limited capacity.
Above you can see that ATI is breaking the driver down further yet. The way that this was explained to me in part was the ability to Crossfire completely different cards. The example that was given to me was the potential to crossfire a Radeon HD 5970 and an ATI 9700. They also said that it wasn’t very likely that they would, but they could. Unfortunately there is currently no real end user scenario at this point. The re-architecture will allow for some significant future changes though.
Last but not least the new Catalyst 10.2 software suite offer up some audio features. The capability to run your display’s speaker through the Displayport is now a reality.
Now that we have taken a look at the new features of Catalyst 10.2, Software Suite let’s take a look at some of the things to come in March with the 10.3 suite.
