Postby Hazerduz » Thu Aug 18, 2005 12:47 pm

Today officially released a new version of its Catalyst display drivers, bringing them up to version 5.8. Those of you who downloaded the drivers yesterday from other sites can now receive official support for them from ATI, as well as download a version without the Catalyst Control Center.

Notable Fixes:

* Battlefield 2
: Geometry corruption or missing textures are no longer noticed when playing the game for an extended period of time under Windows XP with an ATI Radeon® X800 XT installed
* Trackmania Sunrise: Playing the game under Windows XP no longer results in the operating system failing to respond, when attempting to exit the game after leaving the PC idle for an extended period of time
* Quake 3: Enabling SmartShader™ followed by attempting to do a mode change while playing the game, no longer results in the game failing to respond
* GTA: Vice City: Setting the desktop and the game display option to 1024x768 32bpp and attempting to play the game under Windows XP MCE, no longer results in an Invalid Pixel Format message being displayed after approximately 5 minutes of game play

For a full list of fixes please refer to the release notes.
