AMD AMD releases Windows 8 Community Preview Drivers

AMD are almost on top of it with Windows 8, with a new preview driver for Windows 8 Community Preview released today... but it doesn't support the DirectX 11.1 cards. D'oh!

Feature highlights of the AMD Catalyst™ driver for the Windows® 8 Consumer Preview:

Full WDDM 1.2
Highlights include:
  • Native Stereo 3D support: Windows 8 will natively support Stereo 3D for full-screen and windowed gaming, and video applications
  • Unified Video API – Video playback is now integrated within the DirectX® 11 API; enabling simultaneous high quality Video and 3D content, and the potential for enhanced video transcoding performance
  • Optimized screen rotation
  • improved sleep / resume performance
  • Optimized Power Consumption
  • AMD Eyefinity
  • OpenCL
  • OpenGL®
  • UVD
  • Dual Graphics / AMD CrossFire™ Technology
  • AMD Overdrive™
  • Catalyst Control Center / Vision Engine Control Center

Please note: A future AMD Catalyst Windows 8 driver release will add support for the AMD Radeon™ HD 7900 Series, and AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series in the coming weeks.

Chill out frank, it's not like you're running your only computer on Win 8 that you just bought. It is pretty stupid that there's no Win8 driver for the hardware designed for Win8.
