AMD releases hot-fix for Catalyst 10.8

Written by Nick Farell

Helping Radeon users
AMD has released an out-of-cycle hotfix for this month’s Catalyst 10.8 drivers. Amongst all the fixes are those which appear to be geared to helping the latest Radeon GPU run Windows Vista and 7, 32-bit and 64-bit editions.

The first fix applies to Radeon HD 4870 X2 and HD 4850 X2 users. Apparently the previous drivers had a glitch that meant the two cores weren’t being made use of in some games. This caused a significant performance drop.

The second update applies to all DirectX 10-enabled cards across the 3000, 4000 and 5000 series cards. Basically this makes things better for users of Ubisoft’s H.A.W.X. when anisotropic filtering is enabled through the Catalyst Control Center.

It can be downloaded here.

Nice. Another hotfix.

Still, it didn't fix the underscan issues that occured in Cat 10.8.

The Catalyst Makes twitted that the underscan issue that THEY created, will be addressed in 10.10. Double nice!

I don't know what message AMD tries to pass to the world, one month before the launch of the 6000 series.

To me it sounds like, "hey don't buy our new cards because you will get screwed later, one way or another".

The word "hotfix" isn't really the word to use, a year ago AMD said they would be releasing extra drivers in between each official driver release just to address a few of the big problems gamers suffer from so they don't have to wait a whole month for a fix, that's why we have the letter naming scheme now (10.4, 10.4b, 10.5, 10.5b etc)
