Closing out the month of June, AMD has posted two new Catalyst driver builds.

The first is Catalyst 12.6, the WHQL’d final version of the 12.6 beta at the start of the month. So this is virtually identical to the betas, save a few quick fixes. These are the first release drivers that only support AMD’s DX11 GPUs – since 12.5 was canceled, the latest driver for DX10 card owners continues be 12.4.

The second is Catalyst 12.7 beta, which we first saw with the launch of the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition earlier this month. Catalyst 12.7 introduces performance updates for several games and MSAA/SSAA support for Diablo 3, which comes as a bit of a surprise since it doesn’t appear to be part of a new driver branch.

AMD has a blog post up on their site covering both of these drivers, including a more complete lists of improvements.

    get a rootkit warning from their malware software when installing 12.6? I tried to get an answer from AMD, but have not heard anything back from them.
