More performance, more Linux support


AMD has
released the latest Catalyst incarnation, and 9.6 brings us several performance tweaks as well as improved Linux support.

Here's what AMD is promising in terms of improved performance:

Company of Heroes – performance gains of up to 25% for the ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series, and performance gains of up to 10% for the ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

Crysis Warhead – performance gains of up to 11% for dual CrossFire

Crysis – performance gains of up to 13% for ATI CrossFireX technology in dual configuration

World in Conflict – performance gains of up to 30% for high settings that were previously CPU limited with the ATI Radeon HD 4800 series.


Of course, your performance may vary, depending on your particular system configuration.

Our favorite Scotsman, AMD's Ian McNaughton says his favorite community is the Linux community, and it also got a treat, in the guise of SLED and SLED 11 production support and RHEL 4.8 early look support.

You can find the full release notes here, and you can download the new drivers here.
