As per the usual monthly routine for ATI, their new 5.9 Catalyst drivers are now available for download. If anything's bugging you about the 5.8 (or earlier) drivers, give these a shot as there's tons of bug fixes implemented. Additionally, theres some new features to be had which are mentioned in the below comments.


Oh, and for the laptop owners out there, here's the Mobility 5.9s for you to try out.


Driver Message Events :-


Catalyst 5.9 introduces Display Abstraction Layer (DAL) activation of driver message events for notification of controller configuration changes. This feature will apply to all supported operating systems.


Directional Motion Adaptive Deinterlacing Algorithm :-


Catalyst 5.9 introduces directional motion adaptive deinterlacing algorithm through the 3D shader. The algorithm will detect edges in 5 different directions. This reduces artifacts, and improves the overall detinterlace video quality.
