ATI Catalyst 8.10 Fixes the Displacement Mapping Bug in OpenGL

Great news! At last, ATI has fixed the displacement mapping bug. Now you can do vertex texture fetching in your vertex shaders with a Radeon! And GPU Caps Viewer is happy:

More information about vertex displacement mapping here: Vertex Displacement Mapping in GLSL Now Available on Radeon!.

You can grab the Catalyst 8.10 BETA from here: Catalyst 8.10 BETA.

I wonder if ATI will write this bugfix in the release notes… Anyway guys, this new release of Catalyst seems to be a great version…

ATI Catalyst 8.10 Beta Graphics Drivers

The upcoming (october 2008 version) Catalyst graphics driver is available in BETA version. You can download the huge archive (~200Mb) here:
Catalyst 8.10 BETA for Vista
Catalyst 8.10 BETA for XP

As soon as the WHQL version is available, I will publish the OpenGL extensions because GPU Caps Viewer told me that Cat8.10 has around 115 extensions

Here are the screenshots of my Radeon HD 4850 and Catalyst 8.10 BETA under XP32:
