Nuovi driver AMD Catalyst 12.3 disponibili per il download


AMD ha reso disponibile la release 12.3 dei driver Catalyst, compatibili con le schede video dalla serie Radeon HD 2000 in poi. I driver sono disponibili in versioni a 32bit e a 64bit per i sistemi operativi Windows 7, Windows Vista e Windows XP. Nel caso di questi ultimi manca il supporto alle schede Radeon HD 7900, Radeon HD 7800 e Radeon HD 7700 in quanto sarà reso disponibile solo con la versione Catalyst 12.4 attesa per il mese di Aprile.

E’ proprio il supporto ufficiale alle schede della famiglia Radeon HD 7000 con i sistemi operativi Windows 7 e Windows Vista a rappresentare la principale novità implementata in questi driver, unitamente alla correzione di alcuni bug con titoli 3D. Di seguito le note fornite a corredo, mentre il download è accessibile a questo indirizzo.
