(Press Release) Starting today, computers featuring ATI's Radeon based video cards get an extra performance boost thanks to the availability of Catalyst 3.4 from ATI Technologies Inc. CATALYST is the industry's leading software suite that includes unified driver and software applications for ATI's Radeon family of graphics products. This software suite is based on the foundations of stability, performance, quality and innovation. Among its many new features, Version 3.4 is designed to improve video card performance by up to 30 per cent in certain applications.
CATALYST 3.4 enhancements include:
- Fullstream Acceleration of DIVX Player: Resulting from the partnership ATI has with DivXNetworks, Inc., users of RADEON class products based on RADEON 9500 models and higher will enjoy improved DivX content playback. Through a unique accelerated post-processing algorithm (supported in DivX Player version 2.1 and higher) users can enjoy higher quality DivX content exclusively on select RADEON products.
- Enhanced Color Management system: A new control panel, available for all RADEON users, has been designed for a unique user experience. Users can easily control the color of desktop content, gaming and video playback. Additionally, users can also now define profiles for individual applications and switch between them with the new hotkey feature.
- EAZYLOOK: Designed as a revolutionary user interface for home theater settings, EAZYLOOK seamlessly integrates ATI's REMOTE WONDER and ATI's MULTIMEDIA CENTER software suite.
