AMD Merilis Driver Catalyst Pertama di Tahun 2013, 13.1 WHQL

Setelah 3 bulan berlalu sejak Catalyst 12.10 WHQL, divisi graphics card AMD akhirnya merilis driver Catalyst terbaru sekaligus perdana di tahun 2013 dengan versi 13.1. Sebelum merilis Catalyst 13.1 WHQL sebenarnya AMD sempat mengisi kekosongan dengan merilis driver “Never Settle” mereka yaitu Catalyst 12.11 Beta. Driver dengan versi terakhir 12.11 Beta 11 tersebut memang memberikan peningkatan performa yang tergolong signifikan pada game maupun aplikasi benchmark sintesis terutama untuk graphics card seri HD 7000. Catalyst 13.1 WHQL ini boleh dibilang merupakan penyempurnaan dari Catalyst 12.11 Beta.

Catalyst 13.1 WHQL diperuntukkan untuk graphics card DirectX 11 milik AMD yaitu seri HD 5000, HD 6000, dan juga HD 7000. AMD sebelumnya juga sempat dikabarkan akan memperbaiki latency pada graphics card GCN (Graphics Core Next) mereka untuk memperbaiki performa keseluruhan akan tetapi kami tidak memiliki kepastian apakah perbaikan tersebut telah diimplementasikan pada Catalyst terbaru ini. Untuk lebih jelas mengenai berbagai perubahan yang dilakukan AMD pada Catalyst 13.1 WHQL, simak daftar lengkapnya berikut ini.
