Catalyst Control Center:
When you first open up the Catalyst Control Center, you are going to get the welcome screen. This is where you are going to have links to check for driver updates, contact customer care, send AMD your feedback, visit amd.com, or join its Folding@Home team. The Information screen is going to be where we are going to find out some important information about the actual hardware we have just installed in the computer, such as the graphics card manufacturer, the card's BIOS information, the memory size/type installed on the card, etc. The Desktops & Displays section is where we are going to be able to change the resolution and the viewing angle, as well as manage multiple displays if they are connected. You are able to view this information more in depth on the Desktop Properties screen as well, under the Mode tab.
Under the Desktop Properties screen's Color tab, you are going to have the options to change the color correction curve - you can change the Gamma, the Brightness and/or the Contrast. The Display Options screen is where you are going to be able to change how Catalyst Control Center detects new displays that are attached to your computer - the default option is to use manual detection only, meaning you must click the detect displays button in CCC for it to find a new monitor. The 3D screen is where you are going to be able to set all your settings for gaming and graphics displays on the monitor. You have control over the AA, the AAMode, the AF, the AI and the Minimap, as well as a tab to change all the settings.
The Avivo Video screen is where you are going to be able to change all the color and quality settings for video displays on the computer - the default setting for this screen is to allow the application to choose the settings, which is what most people will leave it at. The next screen that we come to is the ATI Overdrive screen. Everything is grayed out on this screen until you click the button that has a picture of a key on it. This button is going to unlock the software to allow for overclocking using the CCC's built-in overclocking utility. When you click the button, you will have a popup message display that lets you know all the warnings of overclocking. Once you have unlocked the software, you are able to change the GPU Clock, the Memory clock, manually control the fan speed, or you could even use the Auto-Tune feature and allow the software to overclock the GPU and Memory automatically.
Now that the software we installed is configured, it's time to take a look at the specifications of the card, then get onto the testing to see how she does!
