AMD have just dished up their final ATI Catalyst driver for the year, coming at at revision 7.12. This update promises the usual array of performance improvements, bug fixes and the like; and there's an improved implementation of OverDrive this time around which allows for GPU and memory overclocking even when in Crossfire mode. You can get the full scoop on what's been changed in the official release notes.

The 7.12 drivers are available for Windows Vista and XP in both 32-bit and 64-bit, you can download them from the AMD GAME! website.

Catalyst™ 7.12 introduces an Avivo™ update. The update allows the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center to reflect what is supported by the driver taking into account the graphics card installed in the system, and will not expose any video features that is not supported by the driver.

This release of Catalyst™ introduces an enhanced version of ATI OverDrive™ for the ATI Radeon™ HD 2900 Series. Users can now Overclock both GPU engine and graphics memory clock speeds in CrossFire™ mode (and over-clock single ATI Radeon™ graphics accelerators as well).
