It also brings AMD HD#D Technology support enhancement that enables support for AMD HD3D technology with AMD CrossfireX configurations and delivers a new Stereo 3D mode over HDMI 1.4a connections. The rest includes Video UI improvements that simplify adjustment of video color and video quality controls in AMD CCC/VECC.
