AMD Catalyst 12.4 Linux Graphics Driver Released
Yesterday while the Phoronix server infrastructure was being hammered by the exclusive Valve Linux work, AMD released their Catalyst 12.4 Linux driver.
The AMD Catalyst 12.4 (fglrx 8.96 series) driver can be found at AMD.com.
As usual, AMD still isn't providing a change-log for the monthly Linux Catalyst driver releases. However, here's some details I do know about this month's driver...
There's now openSUSE 12.1 production support, early-look support for Ubuntu 12.04, Linux PowerXpress support for the Intel Ivy Bridge platform, packaging script updates, and various bug-fixes.
Among the bug-fixes for Catalyst 12.4 on Linux is fixing some multi-head issues, a system hang in certain PowerXpress configurations, fixing a system hang when using OpenGL overlays, correcting an OpenGL performance drop, a soft-hang when killing the X Server, and severe corruption for OpenGL games using the AMD "Redwood" graphics processors.
