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.
