AMD Catalyst 11.10 Version 3 Preview Driver Fixes Rage (Again)

Paul Lilly

Try chanting, " At least it's not Duke Nukem Forever " the next time you fire up Rage and notice any graphical glitches. Screen tearing, popping, texture corruption, and other ugly problems have plagued Rage's release on the PC, but hey, it's more fun to play than DNF, has prettier graphics, and you didn't sit around a decade-and-a-half waiting for it, so there all that going for it. There are also driver updates that are supposed to smooth things out, including AMD's new Catalyst 11.10 Version 3 Preview Driver.

AMD has already released a Rage Performance Driver , and this update adds a even more fixes. It's supposed to reduce random crashing and stability issues while playing Rage on a 32-bit build of Windows 7, reduces object and animation flickering, texture corruption, and stuttering (on dual-core and tri-core systems), fixes flickering with NPCs, enables automatic Vsync, and more.

The Preview Driver also improves performance in the Battlefield 3 Open Beta release with Radeon HD 4000, 5000, and 6000 series videocards.
