Catalyst

The AMD Catalyst graphics driver is available on Linux x86/x86_64. With sharing the Catalyst code-base with Windows, the AMD Catalyst Linux graphics performance is effectively on-par with the Windows Catalyst driver and supports much of the same features and hardware functionality of modern Radeon and FirePro GPUs.
