AMD Catalyst 15.7 WHQL Desktop- und Notebook-Grafiktreiber

AMD hat mit dem Cata짯lyst 15.7 (Ver짯si짯on: 15.20.1046) einen neu짯en WHQL-Trei짯ber ver짯철f짯fent짯licht, der nicht nur Unter짯st체t짯zung f체r Win짯dows 10 bie짯tet, son짯dern auch eine Rei짯he neu짯er Fea짯tures beinhal짯tet. So k철n짯nen mit dem neu짯en Trei짯ber auch die Besit짯zer 채lte짯rer Rade짯on-Gra짯fik짯kar짯ten auf Basis der GCN-Archi짯tek짯tur (ab Rade짯on R7 260) die neu짯en Funk짯tio짯nen Frame Rate Tar짯get Con짯trol (FRTC) und Vir짯tu짯al Super Reso짯lu짯ti짯on (VSR) ver짯wen짯den. Au횩er짯dem sind Per짯for짯mance짯op짯ti짯mie짯run짯gen f체r diver짯se Spie짯le eingeflossen.

Der FPS-Limi짯ter FRTC begrenzt die FPS auf einen im Cata짯lyst Con짯trol Cen짯ter fest짯ge짯leg짯ten Wert und kann dadurch die Leis짯tungs짯auf짯nah짯me der Gra짯fik짯kar짯te und des gesam짯ten Sys짯tems redu짯zie짯ren. Posi짯ti짯ve Neben짯ef짯fek짯te davon sind poten짯ti짯ell gerin짯ge짯re Sys짯tem짯tem짯pe짯ra짯tu짯ren, lang짯sa짯mer dre짯hen짯de L체f짯ter und damit letzt짯lich ein lei짯se짯rer Betrieb. Zus채tz짯lich wird Down짯sam짯pling (VSR) auf den 얤averi-APUs ab dem Modell A6-7400K unter짯st체tzt, wobei sich Auf짯l철짯sun짯gen von bis zu 2560횞1440 Pixel ein짯stel짯len las짯sen. VSR ist eine spe짯zi짯el짯le Ver짯si짯on von Supers짯am짯ple-Anti-Ali짯a짯sing (SSAA, genau짯er: Orde짯red Grid Supers짯am짯ple-Anti-Ali짯a짯sing, oder kurz OGSSAA), die auch in Spie짯len funk짯tio짯niert, wel짯che kei짯ne Unter짯st체t짯zung f체r die 체bli짯che Kan짯ten짯gl채t짯tung mit짯tels Mul짯tis짯am짯ple-Anti-Ali짯a짯sing (MSAA) bie짯ten. Zus채tz짯lich ver짯rin짯gert OGSSAA Flim짯mern. Mit VSR wird zun채chst das Bild in einer Auf짯l철짯sung ober짯halb der nati짯ven Auf짯l철짯sung des ange짯schlos짯se짯nen Dis짯plays berech짯net und dann her짯un짯ter짯ska짯liert. Gegen짯체ber dem Cata짯lyst Ome짯ga hat AMD au횩er짯dem die짯se Funk짯ti짯on um neue Modi erwei짯tert. Zu guter Letzt bie짯tet der Cata짯lyst 15.7 erst짯mals auf Cross짯Fi짯re-Sys짯te짯men Unter짯st체t짯zung f체r Free짯Sync. Eine alle kom짯pa짯ti짯blen Moni짯to짯re umfas짯sen짯de Lis짯te hat AMD hier zusam짯men짯ge짯stellt.

Eine voll짯st채n짯di짯ge Lis짯te der vom Trei짯ber unter짯st체tz짯ten Hard짯ware sowie s채mt짯li짯cher beho짯be짯ner und bekann짯ter Pro짯ble짯me kann den offi짯zi짯el짯len Release Notes ent짯nom짯men wer짯den. Soll짯tet Ihr von Pro짯ble짯men betrof짯fen sein, die dar짯in nicht auf짯ge짯f체hrt wer짯den, dann k철nnt Ihr das offi짯zi짯el짯le Cata짯lyst Crew Feed짯back Form ver짯wen짯den, um das Trei짯ber-Team dar짯auf auf짯merk짯sam zu machen. Eine Hil짯fe짯stel짯lung f체r das For짯mu짯lar k철nnt Ihr hier fin짯den.
