    In addition to releasing the Catalyst 12.1 suite, AMD has today rolled out another graphics driver, a preview version of the Catalyst 12.2 which is set to come in WHQL-tagged form next month. Recommended for 'gamers', this preview release includes all the updates of Catalyst 12.1 as well as the following:

    - AMD Eyefinity 2.1 technology enhancements
    - Additional resolution support: Users can now choose from a larger set of resolutions when running AMD Eyefinity
    - Dynamic Configuration Changes: Switching between different display configurations will occur automatically when physically plugging/un-plugging displays
    - HydraVision enhancements: The Windows Task bar can now be moved and resized based on users preference
    - Profile Manager improvements: Increased support for Display Groups (including 5x1) and Extended configurations within the Profile Manager

    The Catalyst 12.2 Preview Driver can be downloaded (for Windows 7 and Vista) from this page (Radeon HD 7970 users need not click, this driver doesn't support their card).
