    While we give news on updates for general consumer NVIDIA and AMD graphics drivers, we shouldn’t forget that both manufacturers also offer a range of cards for image professionals, the Quadros and FirePros. These are based on the general consumer GPUs but are slightly modified and are, above all, more dependent on their drivers than the general consumer cards. These drivers are specifically developed for the pro cards and are optimised for certain pieces of software, whether this be in terms of gains in precision or rapidity of processing.

    AMD have just announced an update for these drivers, version 8.702. This looks as if it’s a major revision, bringing a certain number of changes allowing sifnificant performance gains. FirePro users should see a gain of 25% in CATIA and a little more than 20% with 3ds Max. Graphics designers haven’t been forgotten either with these drivers allowing you to display 10-bit images in Photoshop CS4, if the rest of your hardware (the screen notably) is compatible. Note also support for passive and stereoscopic 3D, as well as Dolby and DTS 5.1 via the DisplayPort.

    These version 8.702 drivers are available from AMD’s download page, and you can consult the list of certified software here.
