    Well since they won't be releasing a new set after 3.10 this year. The next set will probably 4.0

    Hmm my finger is getting numb from pressing F5 all the time on ati's website, :p


    The next set will be 4.0 i think i think it has to do with the years : 2003: 3.0 - 3.10 2004: 4.0 - 4.??


    P.S. it's funny to see how many people there are online on the forum now, :p

    New Features
    This section provides information on new features found in this release of the CATALYSTâ„¢ Display Drivers. This release of CATALYSTâ„¢ provides users with a new feature known as OpenGL Shading Language Support.

    OpenGL Shading Language Support
    This release adds support for the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL), a flexible, forward-looking, and hardware-independent high-level graphics programming language. The OpenGL Shading Language, defined as an open standard by the OpenGL Architecture Review Board, allows application developers to take advantage of the powerful programmable vertex and pixel processing units present in the 3D graphics system. Open languages offer developers the fastest route to using the latest graphics hardware features. Developers who are interested in using the OpenGL Shading Language with ATI hardware should contact ATI Developer Relations (devrel@ati.com) for more details and documentation. This feature is available for the following ATI RADEONâ„¢ family product line:

    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9800 series
    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9700 series
    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9600 series
    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9500 series
    The feature is available for all operating systems supported by the CATALYSTâ„¢ software driver.



    I would surely like to know which games are going to use that /using it.

    I'll explain this a little further than Nuke209 did...

    The "3" in the catalyst iteration number is the final digit of the year, so... in this case the "3" comes from this year, 2003.

    The number following the "." is derived from the number release of that year. Hence it is called Catalyst 3.10 and the 0 is not ignored.

    The catalyst 4.x will come with the first driver release of 2004.

    Hope that explains it ok for ya mate.
