News AMD Catalyst 9.7 Drivers Released

AMD have released this months version of their Catalyst drivers for Windows Vista and Windows 7, the WindowsXP version is expected tomorrow.

How is this for fanfare? ATI Catalyst 9.7 – AMD’s first official unified Windows7 / Windows Vista Microsoft WHQL certified graphics driver for the Windows 7 RTM. I just hope they work with Windows 7 properly unlike the 9.6 drivers which gave me all kinds of issues!

ATI Catalyst 9.7 delivers a superior Windows 7 experience:
- Great gaming performance – superior performance compared to Windows Vista for single
GPU configurations and ATI CrossFireX™ configurations
- Stability – through AMD’s WHQL certified, unified Windows 7 / Windows Vista graphics
driver
- Leadership in Innovation – support for all the Windows 7 WDDM 1.1 features and AMD
ATI Catalyst features on the ATI Radeon HD 4000 Series, ATI Radeon HD 3000 Series, and ATI Radeon HD 2000 Series of products
Notice the last point about which cards are supported under Windows 7! Although Windows 7 does come with built in drivers that will allow you to use older products, but its worth checking with the release candidates or the upgrade checker.

Catalyst 9.7 also comes with a brand new Control Center and Display Manager and the usual host of fixes for various operating systems.

About to install, fingers crossed that this is a good month as the drivers seem to vary greatly month by month.

The last release didn't like my Windows 7 main installation at all, but as these are for the RTM I am hoping for the best!

Edit: Well I have them installed and running, working great so far on Windows 7 RTM!
