ATI Catalyst 9.5 Available For Radeon-Based Graphics Cards

Catalyst graphics drivers



The May 2009 version of Catalyst graphics drivers for Radeon based graphics cards are out. Currently you can grab them on techPowerUp:

When AMD/ATI will have updated the official download page, I’ll add the changelog. I quickly tested this new Catalyst 9.5 with FurMark and GPU Caps Viewer
and everything seems to be ok. Test bed: Radeon HD 4850, Win XP 32 SP3, Core 2 Duo 8500.

Catalyst 9.5 has still the optimization for FurMark (slow down the GPU). This tweak is activated only when CCC AI is enabled:

ATI Catalyst CCC AI


FurMark score (1280×1024 / 60s / fullscreen / no AA) when CCC AI is enabled:
- FurMark not renamed: 2162
- FurMark renamed in etqw.exe: 4087

FurMark score (1280×1024 / 60s / fullscreen / no AA) when CCC AI is disabled:
- FurMark not renamed: 4097
- FurMark renamed in etqw.exe: 4097

In the OpenGL side, no new extension, still 137 exposed like in Catalyst 9.4:
