AMD/ATI Drivers version 12.1 released, Linux x86, x86_64

Released on Jan 25th, the long awaited 12.1 drivers from AMD. Now fully AMD branded with no trace of ATI. After some strenuous testing, results now in.

Good news for Gnome 3 users. The new drivers work! No more glitches or display corruption. No display manager crashes.

It is not all good though. Video playback is still not as smooth as it should be. Many 3D games still have some issues, but all in all, a big improvement.

If your using any distribution with Gome 3, and you have an ATI/AMD video card, the new drivers are a must have. Go get ’em.
