Catalyst 8.01, nuovi driver per i possessori di schede ATI

| No comment
Driver aggiornati per le nuove schede video dotate di GPU ATI. Oltre al supporto per i modelli più recenti, i driver sono stati sottoposti a controlli accurati per correggere bug e problemi di incompatibilità presenti nelle vecchie versioni. I driver ufficiali sono decisamente più performanti di quelli Open Source, quindi, se cercate il massimo da giochi e applicazioni 3D, installateli subito.


Ci sono ancora delle cose da risolvere, come il problema di Xv e le prestazioni di XRandR, tuttavia sembra che siano stati riconosciuti come bug e verranno risolti nei prossimi rilasci. Inoltre i driver vanno ancora un po’ “a fortuna”: ho sentito molti utenti dire di essere completamente soddisfatti di questa release e altri a cui non parte nemmeno X.
