Thread: Catalyst Windows Xp 4.3 - Driver Download

  1. #1
    New Features
    This section provides information on new features found in this release of the CATALYST™ Display Drivers. New features include:

    SURROUNDVIEW™
    Enhanced rotation mode
    SURROUNDVIEW™
    This release introduces multi-adapter, multi-monitor support for the integrated ATI RADEON™ 9100 IGP graphics processor. Using SURROUNDVIEW™ with an ATI AGP graphics card can provide support for up to three independent monitors. This feature is supported on the RADEON™ 9100 IGP with the following ATI products:

    ATI RADEON™ 9800 series
    ATI RADEON™ 9600 series
    ATI RADEON™ 9500 series
    ATI RADEON™ 9200 series
    ATI RADEON™ 9000 series

    Enhanced rotation mode
    The latest CATALYST™ driver provides Rotation support. The ATI Rotation tab found in the display properties offers four options. Standard Landscape (0°), Rotate 90° Left or Right, or Rotate 180°. When a rotation button is selected, the driver prompts the user to apply the setting or it will time out. A Hotkey can also be assigned to the different rotating options available.

    Performance Improvements

    As with most CATALYST™ releases performance has increased in various situations. The following performance gains are noticed:

    The Pixel Shader performance of our DX9-class products has improved considerably with Catalyst 4.3.
    Halo and Tomb Raider framerates are up 3-7%.
    Shader-specific technology tests such as ShaderMark show gains in the region of 10-20% or more.
    3DMark03's Mother Nature scene runs 2-5% faster across the entire DX9 product line. Our 3DMark03 Pixel Shader 2.0 framerate improves 7-15%.
    Aquamark 3 performance has also improved slightly, at higher resolutions.

    An update a month is what they do. That probably means that sometimes they fix issues and other times they improve performance.
