Downloads for the AMD Catalyst Windows 8 Drivers | Technology News

We kind of saw it coming, and it did come: we're proud to offer you fresh Catalyst download for the much-anticipated Windows 8 operating system.

Among the niftiest features which will be included in the Windows 8 drivers, we could count the native support for Stereo 3D used in fullscreen and windowed games or for other similar video applications.

Unified video DirectX 11 API, offering better transcoding performance is also present, together with enhanced screen rotation, better sleep/resume cycling and optimized power consumption parameters. As somehow expected, support for Radeon HD 7900 and HD 7700 Series is not present, but AMD notes that including this feature in the Catalyst driver is a matter of weeks.

The current Consumer Preview driver also includes  the following components: AMD Eyefinity, OpenC, OpenGL, UVD, AMD Dual Graphics / AMD CrossFire Technology, AMD Overdrive, AMD Catalyst Control Center and Vision Engine Control Center.

Download the AMD Catalyst Consumer Preview driver for Windows 8 as it is available for both 32 and 64 bit distributions.
