Chipmaker AMD has released a new version of the Catalyst driver set for the firm's range of ATI Radeon graphics cards.

The new drivers provide performance boosts to a number of games such as Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and Stormrise while also adding Crossfire application profiles for Mafia 2, Singularity and Aliens vs Predator.

The drivers also provide support to enforce anti-aliasing for Blizzard's popular StarCraft II which failed to provide in-game support for anti-aliasing modes. The new mode needs to be enabled from within the Catalyst driver settings.

AMD have also added OpenGL ES 2.0 support in the 10.8 drivers which will allow hardware accelerated WebGL support just as support for the new web 3D standard begins to roll out into the current crop of web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Opera.
