AMD releases new Catalyst driver for Windows 8 Consumer Preview

To provide the best experience on Windows 8 for its users, AMD timely releases update for their Catalyst driver with full support for Windows 8's new WDDM 1.2 specification. Some of the highlights of the new drivers include: native Stereo 3D support, Unified Video API, optimized screen rotation, improved sleep/resume performance, and optimized Power Consumption.

This release also allows users on Windows 8 to use AMD's standard display features, such as Eyefinity, CrossFire and Overdrive. Unfortunately no support for AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series yet. AMD promises to add support for their newly released video card in the coming weeks.
