    ATI Catalyst Report - Q2

    HEXUS have managed to get a peak at the latest Catalyst Report from ATI, which gives us the rundown on what's happened so far and, more importantly, what Catalyst has got up it's sleeve in the future:
    Upcoming with Catalyst soon there’s a new CCC wizard which run in 640x480 and make it easy for even novice users to get the best out of their cards.

    On top of that, we’ll be getting Emerald MCE (Media Center Edition) support, This will give us full support of MS’s COPP API which enables analogue and digital output protection. Catalyst will also have new UI plug ins to make HDTV resolutions and fine resolutions easy and simple as well as giving Always Ready support so your MCE system is ready to go.
    Check out the full story here.

    I don't know why, but I've always preferred the control panel. I guess I'm afraid of change when it comes to drivers; I'd got very used to them.

    Still, with the features their adding and ATI's forcing of the issue by discontinuting control panel support, I'm sure I'll get into the swing of CCC.

    I've tried the CCC drivers several times, and like the features they bring. But one reason alone keeps driving me back to the CP drivers - memory usage. Even with 5.6, I still find that the CCC drivers use about 80MB more memory than the CP drivers. I have 768MB RAM, but even so that 80MB can make an impact when running UT2004/HL2.

    I guess I now have no choice but to upgrade to 1GB RAM, just so I can use the CCC drivers.

    will they be addressing the installation issues. The current installation program always has me jumping through loops uninstalling the old drivers and cleaning up the orphans that it leaves in the registry.

    This is the single biggest issue I have had with ATI's drivers and multimedia programs. Other than that, ATI rocks.
