Nuevos controladores gráficos de AMD compatibles con los GPUs e IGPs Radeon HD 5000, HD 6000, HD 7000 y Radeon HD 8000 OEM Series, así como sus versiones para portátiles. Entre sus novedades tenemos el soporte al nuevo modelo de controladores Windows Display Driver Model 1.3 (WDDM 1.3), gracias al cual ofrecen soporte certificado al sistema operativo Windows 8.1, además de soportar Windows 8 y Windows 7.

Descarga Catalyst 13.9:

*Nota: Estos controladores certificados no poseen soporte a Frame Pacing, característica introducida desde los controladores Catalyst 13.8 Beta, destinada a mejorar la latencia entre cuadros de sus soluciones CrossFireX y Dual GPU. Por lo que para disfrutar de esta característica se recomienda usar con los controladores Catalyst 13.10 Beta.
