AMD Releases Catalyst 10.12a Hotfix Update, Adds Radeon HD 6900 Series Support

AMD today released the first hotfix update to the recently released Catalyst 10.12 driver suite. A hotfix is an interim update before the next driver release. The new hotfix introduces two important things: first, it adds official support for the newly-released AMD Radeon HD 6970 and AMD Radeon HD 6950 graphics cards; and second, it adds a new Eyefinity mode that lets you use all five display outputs on the HD 6000 series graphics cards (i.e. two DVI, two mini-DP, one HDMI) for a 5 x 1 Eyefinity configuration.

i think so, yes.
great thanks, so if AMD will make HD 5XXX will have driver like this too ? so HD 5XXX owner won't have to use any DP ?

If I'm getting this right, the 6900s do not require a DP adapter to setup 3x1 eyefinity! Sweet:cool:! No more cursor corruption at last! :toast:

what he ran, was 16x AA + MLAA (whether he realised it or not, i dunno)


MLAA is just a tickbox on/off option, no more settings than that.

wait 2 days more and youll get 11.1abc :roll::eek:
I am a time traveller..... I jumped into my capsule this morning and set it to 25th December 2010 (I wanted to see what Santa had brought me), I was pleased because I got the laptop I asked for, I couldn't wait to start it up, on the welcome screen I could see the "AMD Mobility" flash...... then it said "Catalyst 11.8" :roll:

Taken it off, although it has never given me any problems, unless the Malware you talked about is actually a pop up advertisement!

One thing is for sure I hope 11.0 comes out soon . I like the 10.10e drivers better . 10.12 drivers are full of bugs and stop responding intermittently on my shit ! It would be nice if they could really put some hard Over clocking into there interface as well . with the limit of 960 /1440 it is kind of a joke .

That's old news, ATI's drivers have if any as many issues as NVIDIA drivers. Both have equal issues in other words...
