Added Vulkan™ Extension Support

VK_EXT_descriptor_indexing
This extension adds several small features which together enable applications to create large descriptor sets containing substantially all of their resources and selecting amongst those resources with dynamic (non-uniform) indexes in the shader.
VK_KHR_get_display_properties2
This extension provides new entry points to query device display properties and capabilities in a way that can be easily extended by other extensions, without introducing any further entry points.
VK_KHR_8bit_storage
This extension allows use of 8-bit types in uniform and storage buffers and push constant blocks.
VK_KHR_draw_indirect_count
This extension allows an application to source the number of draw calls for indirect draw calls from a buffer.
VK_KHR_create_renderpass2
This extension provides a new entry point to create render passes in a way that can be easily extended by other extensions through the substructures of render pass creation.
EXT_vertex_attribute_divisor
This extension allows instance-rate vertex attributes to be repeated for certain number of instances instead of advancing for every instance when instanced rendering is enabled.

Are there still atioglxx and atioglx1 .dll's in this package?

Cool, earlier than expected. Unfortunately there isn't much to write home about in this release. I think it's funny that they decided to only support hardware-accelerated H.264 playback on their new, high-end cards, since most people will be using them in computers with CPUs that can do it just fine in software.

Agreed. I am getting an X850 GTO in a few days for replacing my aging 9600LE.

They usually release one once a month (that's what the number after the decimal means - the month number), but they did an extra one this year as a "Christmas present" to their customers.

Also, I've installed it and noticed no major differences, except that the texture shimmering I was seeing in World of Warcraft *might* be gone now.

New year, new numbers, not really a big jump. The naming is YY.MM so 6.1 (and not 6.10) is the correct version number. Year 2006, month 1.

Is it so? So what does 5.13 mean? Month 13 - A weird year is that, ennit?

BTW: Corrected version numbers. No more 6.10

Somehow I already figured that out. I was just being a little sarcastic... :happyhappy:

Thanks. But for some odd reason that page only works for me when using Internet Explorer. :angry:

I have installed Catalyst 7.5 on a friend's machine today and the Control Center doesn't come up when launched. I have uninstalled/installed it again but it didn't make any difference.

yeah, ccc tends to do that if you install a newer driver without the control center :/

have they fixed the input lag from ati2evxx yet?

In the end I sent the CCC to hell and installed ATi Tray Tools.

Re: ATi Catalyst 7.9 released

Postby eL_PuSHeR » 2007-9-11 @ 09:47

Heh. ATi changed the look for its driver page. Very cute.

WARNING!

Catalyst 7.9 driver broke D3D for me. Directdraw acceleration and OpenGL work just fine, but D3D isn't working (not dx7, nor dx8 nor dx9). I get a weird error in the dxdiag tests. Games using D3D aren't working either. :angry:

I just downgraded to 7.8 and everything is back to normal.

Anything 7.7 or newer tends to completely break OpenGL support for me apparently with nice crashes, unless it's a "omg new game" like Quake Wars.
