AMD Catalyst 8.5

Владельцы видеокарт AMD/ATI могут обновлять драйвера – вот они версии 8.5 уже. В этой версии очень большой список изменений, что не свойственно для AMD:

  • поддержка RV770, M98, ATI Radeon HD 3690 и FireStream 9170;
  • поддержка новых ядер (до 2.6.25);
  • увеличена производительность в 2D;
  • поддержка Dynamic Kernel Module (DKMS) в скрипте установки. DKMS даёт возможность автоматически создавать модуль драйверов при загрузке с новым ядром. Теперь не придётся каждый раз заново устанавливать драйвера при обновлении ядра;
  • … и много исправлений ошибок. В том числе, как в предыдущий раз я пошутил, и с “черным экраном” при переключении в консоль ;)
