AMD graphics division continues to release new catalyst driver versions as scheduled. Just a few days ago they updated their latest driver with version 9.5 that promises certain performance changes compared with version 9.4. As usual, we decided to check how true these promises were.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / ATI March of the Froblins v1.2 update
« on: May 24, 2009, 03:41:02 AM »
Froblins demo has been updated on May 13th.
No changelog available, i guess they optimised it for Windows 7, recent Catalyst or GPUs?

We are glad to announce the release of 3D-Coat V3 powered by volumetric sculpting feature 1th June 2009. 3D-Coat V3 will support NVIDIA's CUDA™ technology which considerably accelerates volumetric sculpting performance.

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software.

DivX Labs has now announced a solution to this that not only adds support for MKV for the container in Windows 7 but also enables hardware acceleration of the media through Microsoft's own H.264 decoder.

A couple of interesting things about the compute shader is that while the programming approach is radically different from traditional vertex and pixel shader programming, the underlying hardware hasn't radically changed to accomodate this change in API. It's mostly about using existing hardware capabilities in a smarter way.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Can PhysX run on OpenCL?

NVIDIA: Any language out there that promotes GPU computing is something we’re excited about. Hopefully you guys saw the press release we put out that talked about us being the first to deliver an OpenCL driver for developers. It’s one of the reasons Apple picked this top to bottom on their notebooks and a lot of their desktops because we have OpenCL support; we plan on supporting OpenCL. We’re working very closely with Microsoft on DirectX Compute, but we’re also working on our C implementation that runs on our CUDA hardware architecture. So CUDA will support all the languages. It’ll support C; it’ll support OpenCL; it’ll support DirectX Compute.

In terms of PhysX, right now we’ve got a pretty large, deep infrastructure already built with PhysX the way it is, the toolset that we have. We’ve got multi-platform support across Wii, Playstation3, Xbox 360 and even the iPhone now and now on the PC we support GPU, CPU and if people want, even the older PPU is still supported. So right now our plan is to just keep PhysX the way it is moving forward and support the developers the way we are today.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / ATI Mobility Modder 1.2 available
« on: May 24, 2009, 03:35:50 AM »
The new FINAL version is now and has an installer.
- Added support for Windows 7 drivers
- Fixed problem in driver modification with the 9.2 and higher drivers

So what's the deal, what exactly is Mobility Modder?

Hopefully some of you coming to this page will already have used our older Mobility Modder for XP but for those of you who haven't I guess it is time for a brief history lesson. I know these things can be extremely boring, so i will keep it short.

ATI have for many years had their hands tied with laptop manufacturers (OEMS) who request that ATI do not offer support for their device in the Catalyst Driver. This may seem strange, however makers such as Dell may have implemented their own support system and they do not want their customers downloading "reference" drivers from ATI's home page.
