AMD AMD Catalyst 12.4 WHQL: MLAA 2.0, AAA/SSAA DX10/11 support, improved LoD adjustment

AMD's Catalyst driver team have released the official WHQL for 12.4 with improvements for many features:

We have just released AMD Catalyst™ 12.4 for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Linux platforms on www.amd.com

Feature highlights of the AMD Catalyst™ 12.4 driver:

Windows XP support for the AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series, AMD Radeon HD 7800, and AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
  • In addition to Windows 7 and Windows Vista support, Catalyst 12.4 now also introduces Windows XP (64-bit/32-bit) support for the AMD Radeon HD 7900, AMD Radeon HD 7800, and AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series

Super Sampling Anti-Aliasing: Level of Detail (LOD) Image Quality enhancements
  • Supported on the AMD Radeon HD 7900, AMD Radeon HD 7800, and AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
  • LOD Image quality enhancements for Super Sample Anti-Aliasing and Adaptive Anti-Aliasing through the AMD Catalyst™ Control Center for DirectX® 10 and DirectX® 11 applications.
  • Applications must support in game Anti-Aliasing for the feature to work (Forced on Anti-Aliasing through the Catalyst Control Center is not supported for DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 applications)

Morphological Anti-Aliasing (MLAA): Significant performance enhancements
  • Supported on the AMD Radeon HD 7900, AMD Radeon HD 7800, AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series, AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series, and AMD Radeon HD 5000 Series
  • MLAA now operates up to 80% faster than previous versions
  • Texture filtering quality improvements
  • Supported on the AMD Radeon HD 7900, AMD Radeon HD 7800, and AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
  • Improvements have been made to the texture filtering algorithm (for both DirectX9 and DirectX10/DirectX11 applications) to increase the quality of rendered textures, with no impact to performance

Resolved issues: Highlights of the AMD Catalyst™ 12.4 driver:
  • Elder Scolls: Skyrim : flickering square corruption is no longer observed on certain AMD Graphics cards.
  • Rage : Vsync is no longer disabled after task switching.
  • Tearing is no longer observed on the third screen in 3x1 and 1x3 Eyefinity configurations
.



Note about Eyefinity tearing - please read here. in our discussion thread.

Yes, AMD are working on fixes and hope to have solutions in the upcoming weeks. I know that's vague and not the best news, but they're aware and engaged in working on solving the problems.
