AMD welcomes in the New Year, releases Catalyst 12.1, 12.1 Preview, 8.921.2 RC11 drivers

AMD release slew of new drivers, Catalyst 12.1, Catalyst 12.2 Preview, 8.921.2 RC11

AMD have just gone crazy and released a bunch of new updates for Radeon owners. There's an official Microsoft-certified build (12.1), a preview of the next official release (12.2) and an early driver for the HD 7900-Series (8.921.2 RC11).




If you want to continue with your stability and trust in AMD's recommendations, we suggest grabbing the WHQL-certified 12.1 release, if you want to live a bit on the edge, grab the 12.1 Preview, and if you're a HD 7900-Series owner, you might want to test the new 8.921.2 RC11 driver.


Keep in mind that the Catalyst 12.1 and Catalyst 12.2 Preview drivers both don't support the latest-generation Radeon HD 7900-Series GPUs. If you want drivers for that series, you want the 8.921.2 RC11 drivers. The RC11 drivers give an 8- to 250-percent improvement in games and benchmarks such as Alien Vs. Predator, Battlefield 3, Crysis 2 and TessMark (OpenGL).


You can grab those drivers at AMD's Graphics Drivers & Software download page.
