ATI Technologies Inc. have produced a "tool" optimizing significantly the way their boards deal with antialiasing. The end result is that all OpenGL-based games now perform a lot better with AA enabled, and especially with DOOM 3 for which sources withing ATI have observed a 35% boost in performance.

This fix will be rolled into the upcoming CATALYST 5.11, which should be released somewhen next month.

    Actually, Catalyst is ATI's 'display driver', which is what the computer uses to make your video card a part of the system. nVidia has its own display drivers, but the Catalyst is ONLY FOR ATI's cards - you can't use it with any other card manufactured by any other company.

    So for your question about the Catalyst working with nVidia's cards, it's a definite NO. Your computer would crash if you tried to do a thing like that.

    Ummm... What's with those numbers at the side? Doom 3 can't go over 60FPS, it's locked at that...
