ATI's Drivers Deliver Support for Microsoft Vista
ATI’s Graphics Drivers Deliver Superior Support for Microsoft’s Next-Generation Operating System
Microsoft Windows Vista will make extensive use of 3D graphics for the desktop. ATI’s support of beta 1 enables the developer community to write a new class of visually stunning applications for the new operating system. By making LDDM drivers available more than a full year prior to Windows Vista release, ATI provides developers with a stable, feature-enabled and performance-optimized platform for application development.
“We are happy to see ATI's commitment to developing a Windows Vista graphics driver,” said Chris Donahue, Group Manager, Windows Graphics & Gaming Technology team at Microsoft Corp. “Users of Windows Vista advanced 3D capabilities will enjoy the premium experience of a high quality, high performance and stable GPU driver. ATI’s substantial investment in Windows Vista has resulted in tremendous progress on driver development, including the delivery of broad device support, full 64-bit compatibility and excellent performance.”
Included with Microsoft’s Windows Vista beta 1 release are ATI’s Catalyst drivers for its desktop and mobile DirectX 9 class discrete graphics processors as well as support for the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows Vista. Additionally, ATI also is making available today on its website a further Catalyst LDDM driver which includes all of the functionality mentioned above plus support for integrated graphics processors in Windows Vista.
“ATI is providing broad graphics driver support to Microsoft and the MSDN community for all ATI DirectX 9 hardware in Microsoft Windows Vista beta 1,” said Ben Bar-Haim, Vice President of Software Engineering, ATI Technologies. “ATI is proud to point out we have more Windows Vista in-the-box driver support than any other independent hardware vendor”.
A long-time supporter of Microsoft’s DirectX 9 application programming interface, ATI is working closely with Microsoft to ensure ATI graphics processors offer the best feature support and greatest compatibility with Microsoft Windows Vista. ATI’s complete line of DirectX 9 Radeon discrete graphics for desktop computers, Mobility Radeon graphics for notebook PCs and Radeon Xpress 200 chipsets with integrated graphics for motherboards offer fully featured driver support for the beta 1 release.
