AMD Catalyst OpenGL 4.3 Graphics Driver, 7 new OpenGL Extensions



AMD Catalyst logo



Nope, AMD is not publishing an OpenGL 4.4 driver like NVIDIA did it, but rather a new beta driver with full support of OpenGL 4.3.

You can download this beta driver from these links:



AMD Catalyst OpenGL 4.3 driver




Compared to latest Catalyst 13.4, this new version of Catalyst 13.4 adds the following new extensions:

  • GL_AMD_shader_atomic_counter_ops
  • GL_ARB_copy_image (OpenGL 4.3)
  • GL_ARB_framebuffer_no_attachments (OpenGL 4.3)
  • GL_ARB_internalformat_query2 (OpenGL 4.3)
  • GL_ARB_texture_view (OpenGL 4.3)
  • GL_ARB_vertex_attrib_binding (OpenGL 4.3)
  • GL_KHR_debug (OpenGL 4.3)



More information on this driver can be found HERE.
