Those who install the new drivers can also look forward to resolved problems in Assassin’s Creed, Crysis, Frontlines: Fuel of War, Hellgate London, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, World In Conflict, and World of Warcraft. Oh, and AMD mentions that the Catalyst 8.7 drivers bring a “Full Hardware information” section to the Catalyst Control Center. This section details each graphics card installed in the user’s system.

You can grab the latest Catalyst driver for Windows XP and Windows Vista in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors from this page on AMD’s Game! website, as usual. Detailed release notes are up in this PDF file.

On the Linux front, the Catalyst 8.7 release fixes a few bugs and adds support for Ubuntu 8.04, SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 SP2, and openSUSE 11. You can get the 8.7 Linux Catalysts over here for 32-bit systems and on this page for 64-bit Linux variants. AMD links detailed release notes on both driver download pages.
