AMD Catalyst 10.12 Windows 7 Driver Analysis (Page 1)

AMD has just released a new Catalyst 10.12 driver for Radeon graphics cards - we check out performance under Windows 7.

Manufacturer: AMD





It's official; we're in December with the release of the Catalyst 10.12. As the Catalyst driver team has done over the past few Decembers, they're at it again offering us something special at the end of the year.


Unfortunately it doesn't seem like performance improvements are very focused on this month. Instead we've got ourselves a fresh looking interface and you can see just below the transition that has happened over the years.




We won't go into too much detail on the whole interface, but we will cover it a little in our final thoughts. As usual, though, we'll fire up our benchmarks and see if anything is happening when it comes to performance improvements.


Before we move into that, though, it's got to be said outside of the new interface that we're seeing today, the Catalyst 10.12s now also support the new HD 6800 series that we saw launch in October. For that reason we're mixing it up a bit when it comes to our test line-up, but we'll cover that on the next page.
