Default AMD Discontinues Monthly Driver Updates, Releases Catalyst 12.6 Beta

The last month or so has been one of transition for AMD’s Catalyst driver crew. Alongside the launch of AMD’s Trinity APU – complete with what’s only AMD’s 2nd VLIW4 GPU – AMD has also been hard at work on preparing their next Windows 8 drivers, and on the development side of things AMD also put plans into motion to move their DX10 GPU families to legacy status. Capping this off, AMD’s driver team is embarking on one more change, and for long-time AMD followers it’s going to be a doozy.

For the better part of a decade now AMD (née ATI) has released new WQHL-certified video drivers on a monthly basis. In principle this enables AMD to offer driver updates on a predictable schedule, and to spread out major driver changes over a few versions of the driver. In practice this is exactly how things have worked up until the last couple of years, which is why we’ve been fans of AMD’s driver update schedule for the longest time.
