AMD CATALYST 15.7.1 WHQL-Treiber für Windows 10

Pünkt­lich zur Vor­stel­lung von Micro­soft Win­dows 10 ges­tern hat AMD sei­ne Trei­ber für das neue Betriebs­sys­tem ver­öf­fent­licht. Auch wenn Win­dows 10 genau wie Win­dows 8 und 7 zuvor auf dem Vis­ta-Ker­nel auf­bau­en und damit prin­zi­pi­ell auch deren Trei­ber ver­wen­den könn­te, ist es natür­lich bes­ser, eigens für Win­dows 10 pro­gram­mier­te Trei­ber zu nut­zen. Ins­be­son­de­re beim Gra­fik­trei­ber hat sich bei Win­dows 10 etwas getan, denn Micro­softs neu­es­te Krea­ti­on ver­wen­det WDDM (Win­dows Dis­play Dri­ver Model) Ver­si­on 2.0, wohin­ge­gen Vis­ta WDDM 1.0, Win­dows 7 WDDM 1.1, Win­dows 8 WDDM 1.2 und Win­dows 8.1 WDDM 1.3 ver­wen­de­te. Zudem müs­sen die Gra­fik­trei­ber unter Win­dows 10 mit der Direc­tX 12 API kom­mu­ni­zie­ren kön­nen, die es aus­schließ­lich unter Win­dows 10 gibt.
