    AMD released a new Catalyst hotfix driver update, 11.6a. This release comes 15 days after the month's main version, 11.6 WHQL, was released. The updated driver otherwise has the same exact feature-set as 11.6 WHQL, but adds support for graphics processors embedded into AMD's new Vision A-Series accelerated processing units, namely Radeon HD 6550D inside A8-3800 series, and Radeon HD 6530D inside A6-3600 series. Available for Windows XP, and Windows 7/Vista in both x86 and x86-64 forms, the Catalyst 11.6a Hotfix update can be downloaded from the link below.

    I guess I'll be skipping this one. I don't currently own an APU.

    These drivers don't seem to be detecting my 3D Rage Pro. Any ideas? :cool:

    The last time I tried to install the most up to date drivers for my X700 a couple of years ago, the installer wouldn't let me. I had to do some research and find out what the most recent driver that would support it was. It's in a computer that doesn't do gaming :laugh:

    Just use the 11.7 beta drivers, they are better.
