Advanced software to increase the processing power of GPU systems
AMD Catalyst is a graphics interface package specifically intended to be used in conjunction with APU and GPU systems produced by AMD (including AMD Radeon). Its main purpose is to enhance the efficiency and power of these platforms, providing greater user control and responsiveness. So, many professionals will employ this system when visual clarity and greater levels of flexibility are required. It can be very beneficial for game programmers and video editors.
Main Features and Tools
AMD Catalyst is said to enhance the performance of AMD APUs and GPUs by up to 29 percent, a massive increase when compared to traditional methods. It is also able to work in conjunction with HDTV systems, ensuring crystal-clear 4K playback without sacrificing speed or power. This package uses what is known as contour improvement technology. So, 1080p videos will appear to run smoother and lag times are eliminated. Those who have been hoping to maximize the true power of their system will not be disappointed.
Due to the open-source nature of AMD Catalyst, updates will take place on a regular basis. These often address common issues such as bugs as well as overall usability. Frame-pacing enhancements and the deployment of Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) techniques have further streamlined this entire bundle.
