AMD Catalyst 11.11 WHQL Driver Suite Released

Well, this 11.11 release doesn't list any performance improvements unfortunately. It contains just one new unexciting feature and a few fixes, but still has quite a long list of known issues. The new feature is Adobe Flash Player 11 hardware accelerated graphics support, including the A-series and E-series APUs. Fixes include things like Rage texture corruption, bezel compensation working correctly in Far Cry 2 and a screen tearing fix for displays in clone mode. Therefore, if your setup is working fine, there's no rush to update to this driver in case it breaks something. Note the following CAP 1 profile updates added to this release:

- Battlefield 3: Tweaks to the CrossFire profile
- Global Ops: Commando Libya: Improves CrossFire performance
- Driver San Francisco: Disables CrossFire

"The Catalyst driver requires Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to be installed."

Hmmm this is a problem, the service pack won't install on my computer for some reason.

Well, if you go here, it shows "CAP 1" under the version number for the profiles, but it's not mentioned in the release notes. That same page also shows the following:

New profiles added to this release:
- Battlefield 3: Tweaks to the CrossFire profile
- Global Ops – Commando Libya: Improves CrossFire performance
- Driver San Francisco: Disables CrossFire

EDIT: I've added this info to the news story.

Yes, I saw that. Nothing is mentioned for Skyrim, therefore this CAP doesn't improve Skyrim.

Well, hopefully they'll release it as a hotfix in a little while. :)
