AMD graphics card owners will no longer see a fresh set of driver updates each month. As revealed in the Catalyst 12.6 Beta release notes, the company is moving away from a monthly release schedule to “ensure that every Catalyst release delivers a substantial benefit to our end users.”
Taking a gander around hardware forums, AMD has caught quite a bit of flak from CrossFire users in regards to the Radeon HD7900 series. Moveover, the amount of problems you see usually outweigh those on the Nvidia front.
Here’s hoping not having to push out a full update every single month will translate to better quality drivers in the long run. Not having to deal with the overhead of testing and certifying so many driver suites will certainly save resources that could be spent on improvements elsewhere.
