AMD is working with Valve to deliver ATI Catalyst graphics driver updates via its Steam platform, a leading platform for PC games and digital entertainment.
Steam users can now detect and install the latest ATI Catalyst driver for their ATI Radeon graphics card directly from within Steam. Valve’s most recent Steam Hardware Survey shows that 87 percent of DirectX 11 gamers are using ATI Radeon or ATI Mobility Radeon hardware.
“Steam represents an evolution for PC and online gaming, and the availability of ATI Catalyst graphics driver updates directly on the Steam platform can help further enhance the PC gaming experience for users of ATI Radeon products,” said Ben Bar-Haim, corporate vice president of software for AMD. “AMD now has the opportunity to help deliver an even better experience for PC gamers.”
"Valve is extremely pleased to be working with AMD to provide automatic driver updates for AMD's leading edge products on Steam," said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. "PC gamers demand the most of their gaming hardware and providing these updates automatically will help ensure those playing via Steam are playing at optimal performance."
The auto-notification of driver updates delivered via Steam to users with ATI Radeon graphics hardware will provide gamers the opportunity to optimize their PC gaming experience.
