ATI Installer, Radeon 8500 Firmware Updated
6:00 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Yesterday, ATI's Eric Jaeger noted in the IMG Forum that an updated installer for the March 2002 ATI drivers has been posted. The previous installer did not function correctly in Mac OS X 10.1.4: users were required to install the drivers in 10.1.3 before updating to 10.1.4. That is no longer required with the new installer.

In related news, ATI has released a firmware update for the Radeon 8500. The new version 126 firmware resolves several issues found in the older version 123 firmware and is recommended for all Radeon 8500 cards. Before upgrading, please read the release notes.
