AMD is revealing a brand new driver release today, which will mark a new era for the Catalyst software suite. 12 years after its introduction, the Catalyst drivers are considered a stable base to build on, so the company decided to take it to the next level.

The new release, which is called "Catalyst Omega", has three goals: to incorporate bug fixes users wanted, introduce brand new features to the driver and of course, provide your regular dosage of performance enhancements in various games. It is considered a major driver release not all driver releases from now on will be of Omega status, but AMD promises that more will definitely follow, at least once a year.
