AMD is teasing us with its latest Catalyst driver suite. Catalyst 10.11 WHQL from AMD has come after no less than five hotfix updates to the previous version Catalyst 10.10. The new version of Catalyst is reported by many to have been added to Windows Update late yesterday (11/16), but wasn't backed by any release notes document then. The driver is now uploaded on AMD's Game website. AMD Catalyst software suite includes drivers for all current ATI/AMD Radeon GPUs, AMD integrated graphics, and other ATI multimedia products. This version of AMD Catalyst brings a small number of game-specific performance enhancements, as well as fixes a few bugs. To begin with, performance is expected to go up by 3% for Battleforge, on Radeon HD 5800 series GPUs, both single and CrossFire, with AA disabled. Up to 5% performance increase can be expected for STALKER: Call of Pripyat benchmark.

I assume these are older than the 10.10e Hotfix? Maybe I'll just wait for 10.11a Hotfix drivers which should be released any minute now.

Edit: I'm not dissing AMD, I rather like the fact that they're doing updates throughout the month to the drivers.

Looks like ill stick with 10.10e, after reading the release notes there is not much of a change. I bet there will be a hotfix for GPU usage in COD:BO unless that is purely server side.

These drivers wouldn't install for me. I installed them and still had the huge screen (Pre-Driver screen)

Wait for official release.

I bet by the end of the day AMD will release 10.11a hotfix or tomorrow. 10.11a should have Morphological AA, but as it's already stated that 10.11 is actually older than 10.10e with Morphological AA. The drivers were already sent to be signed WHQL. SO, I'm waiting for 10.11a... :toast: I think what amd is doing with there drivers is great compared to days of the old. :toast:

What a pile of junk these drivers are. NFS Hot Pursuit. Worked fine with 10.10e. With 10.11 WHQL, the game simply crashes when it should start the race. Ridiculous.

AMD Catalyst™ Software Suite Version 10.11


This article provides information on the latest posting of AMD’s software suite, AMD Catalyst™ 10.11. This particular software suite updates both the AMD display driver, and the AMD Catalyst™ Control Center.This unified driver has been updated to provide enhanced level of power, performance, and reliability. Package Content

The AMD Catalyst™ software suite 10.11 contains the following:

AMD display driver version 8.791
HydraVision™ for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7
Southbridge/IXP Driver
AMD Catalyst™ Control Center version 8.791

Important!

Caution!


The AMD display driver and the AMD Catalyst Control Center can be downloaded independently of each other. However, for better stability and performance AMD recommends that both components be updated from the same AMD Catalyst release.
The AMD Catalyst Control Center requires that the Microsoft® .NET Framework SP1 be installed for Windows XP and Windows Vista. Without .NET SP1 installed, the AMD Catalyst Control Center will not launch properly and the user will see an error message.
Notes

When installing the AMD Catalyst driver for Windows operating system, the user must be logged on as Administrator or have Administrator rights to complete the installation of the AMD Catalyst driver.
These release notes provide information on the AMD display driver only. For information on the ATI Multimedia Center™, HydraVision, HydraVision Basic Edition, Remote Wonder™, or the Southbridge/IXP driver, please refer to their respective release notes found at: http://support.amd.com/.
ATI Eyefinity™ technology gives gamers access to high display resolutions. As pixel count grows, the graphics horsepower required to drive the displays at a reasonable frame rate can increase dramatically. Depending on the game and system configuration, users may notice texture corruption and reduced frame rates when running games in multi-monitor Eyefinity modes.
Windows Driver Model (WDM) drivers are no longer bundled in the AMD Catalyst software suite. The WDM drivers install bundle can be downloaded independently through the AMD website
The Drag and Drop Transcoding feature is a beta level feature provided only for evaluation purposes. The Drag and Drop Transcoding feature is only supported on single and dual core CPUs, and supported on devices that support Media Transfer Protocol (MTP).
When upgrading from a non-Stream™ Edition driver suite to a Stream Edition driver suite with the ATI Stream™ SDK v2 installed, it is recommended that you uninstall the ATI Stream SDK v2 Developer component from the system prior to installing Stream Edition driver suite
When installing the ATI Stream SDK v2 after a Stream Edition driver suite has been installed on a system, you may encounter a maintenance dialog for the developer component of the SDK. This is normal and can be ignored by canceling the dialog box.

The AMD Catalyst driver is compatible with the following AMD products.

Grrrr "Mouse cursor may intermittently be corrupt/missing in one of the displays under Eyefinity configuration while playing games/samples" i only get a corrupt cursor in windows, it's starting to get a little annoying when using chat windows on my far left screen.

but apart form that minor complaint i can't see any reason for me to change drivers.

I bet by the end of the day AMD will release 10.11a hotfix or tomorrow. 10.11a should have Morphological AA, but as it's already stated that 10.11 is actually older than 10.10e with Morphological AA. The drivers were already sent to be signed WHQL. SO, I'm waiting for 10.11a... :toast: I think what amd is doing with there drivers is great compared to days of the old. :toast:
What a pile of junk these drivers are. NFS Hot Pursuit. Worked fine with 10.10e. With 10.11 WHQL, the game simply crashes when it should start the race. Ridiculous.

maybe it's just me, but all the 10.10 hotfixes did for me was cause yellowish lines on some games.
reverted back to 10.10 whql, problem's still there.
10.9 whql doesn't have this problem, and the 10.11 whql driver turned out good as well.
running HD4k cards, so that could be why, but whatever. whql is fine by me.

Quoted from AMDZone article, here:AMD Releases Catalyst 10.11, 10.1e Hotfix

"Wednesday, 17 November 2010 13:45
Written by Chris Tom"

"AMD has just released Catalyst 10.11 drivers here as well as a Catalyst 10.10e hotfix for Radeon 6800 owners."

"We’ve also recently posted the AMD Catalyst 10.10e hotfix driver here (AMD Radeon HD 6800 users should use this driver; AMD Catalyst 10.12 will add support for the AMD Radeon HD 6800 series):"

on 10.10e, yes:
"AMD Catalyst 10.10e Hotfix includes the following features and enhancements:

§ The ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series now supports the new Catalyst AI user interface that was previously only available on the AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series

§ The ATI Radeon HD 5000 now supports Morphological Anti-Aliasing"

I think you didn't remove all traces of the old ones then because I was on like 10.7 and upgraded to these and my NFS Hot Pursuit 2010 works just fine. Here's what I bet you have to do. You have to show hidden folders and then delete the C:\Users\Your User Name Here\AppData\Local\ATI, folder and the C:\Users\Your User Name Here\AppData\Roaming\ATI, folder and then install the new drivers. I bet that resolves your issues.

ATI's installation manager software always leaves these behind and they always cause issues for me, delete them and no more issues with new drivers.
