by Jason Cross

ATI is taking the wraps off some major changes to its Catalyst drivers today. These monthly graphics driver updates usually focus on minor tweaks, bug fixes, and performance improvements, but this month and next month will usher in some singificant new features.

Catalyst 10.2 should be avialbe today (February 17), and brings along with it the following features:

Crossfire support used to be part of the core Direct3D and OpenGL drivers, but has now been moved out to a seperate Crossfire DLL file. End users won't notice anything because of this, but it will let ATI be more agressive and flexible with future changes and improvements to the way Crossfire works.
