Driver AMD Catalyst release 11.2, compatibile con le schede video dalla serie Radeon HD 2000 in poi.
Introducono alcune ottimizzazioni prestazionali con giochi 3D e varie migliorie a livello di qualità d’immagine, sia con una gestione custom della soglia d’intervento della tessellation sia con supporto al Morphological Anti Aliasing anche per le schede ATI Radeon HD della serie 5000.
Di seguito le principali novità introdotte in questa versione:
The new Catalyst Control Center features
Catalyst AI Texture Filtering updates
The Quality setting has now been improved to match the High Quality setting in all respects but one; it enables an optimization that limits tri-linear anisotropic filtering to areas surrounding texture mipmap level transitions, while doing bilinear anisotropic filtering elsewhere. This optimization offers a way to improve filtering performance without visibly affecting image quality
The Performance setting has been updated to address the sharpness of the default Quality setting causing shimmering in certain cases. It now provides a smoother filtering option that eliminates most shimmering while preserving the improved detail provided by anisotropic filtering.
Supported on the ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series and the AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series
New settings give users full control over the Tessellation levels used in applications.
The default selection “AMD Optimized” setting is intended to set the best level of Tessellation on a per application basis. The “AMD Optimized” setting is designed to help users get the maximum visual benefit of Tessellation, while minimizing the performance impact associated with enabling Tessellation.Currently no applications have been profiled.
The “Use Application Settings” option gives applications full control over the Tessellation level.
Users can also manually set the maximum tessellation level used by applications with the slider control
Morphological Anti-Aliasing support for the ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series
AMD Catalyst now includes official support for Morphological Anti-Aliasing for the ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series
Support Video Quality settings during Blu-ray 3D playback
Supported on the AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series
Requires Blu-ray 3D player software, 3D supported display and 3D Stereoscopic glasses
Users can now enable the Video Quality settings within the Catalyst Control Center when playing Blu-ray 3D content
