ATI releases Catalyst 4.11 drivers

Markham (ON) - ATI today released a new driver package for its graphic chips. The new Catalyst 4.11 includes localized versions of the control center in five additional languages as well as several fixes for games throughout the Radeon 7500, 9000, 92xx, as well as the X300, X600, X700, and X800 series.

The driver package now comes with the Catalyst Control center in French, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese in addition to the English version. The component also received a new monitor properties page, where each connected display now has its own properties tab.

Issues resolved include the games Breed, Halo in combination with X800 PCI Express graphic cards, Joint Operation Typhoon Rising (X700), Postal 2 (all GPUs), Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 (7500), Serious Sam (9000, 9200, and 9250), Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (all GPUs), and Will Rock (all GPUs).

Catalyst 4.11 also includes a memory allocation bug fix for all AGP Radeon products with 256 of MB of memory that significantly improves performance for applications that make intensive us of graphics memory, ATI said. Importing files that have been captured using Pinnacle Media Center into Windows Movie Maker 2 no longer results in the Windows XP operating system failing to respond when a X300 or X600 card, according to the manufacturer. Also, a problem of incorrect colors in Movie Maker 2 under Windows XP in combination with X300 and X600-based cards has been resolved.
