AMD Catalyst 11.6 Drivers Now Available for Download

Paul Lilly

When it comes to driver updates, computer users typically fall into one of two categories. There are the conservative types who prefer to wait a few days to make sure the new drivers don't break anything, and there are those who can't install the new drivers fast enough to take advantage of the new features, performance boosts, and bug fixes. If you fall into the latter category and own an AMD Radeon videocard, get to clicking because there's a new Catalyst package available.

AMD promises performance gains in a handful of titles with its new Catalyst 11.6 driver package, including:

  • Crysis : Up to 7 percent on AMD Radeon HD 6000 series single card configurations
  • F1 2010 : up to 8 percent in DirectX 11 mode on AMD Radeon HD 6000 series products in single and CrossFire configurations
  • Far Cry 2 : Up to 5 percent on AMD Radeon HD 6000 series products in single and CrossFire configurations
  • HAWX : Up to 8 percent on AMD Radeon HD 6000 series products in single and CrossFire configurations
  • Unigine Open GL Tests : Up to 10 percent on AMD Radeon HD 6000 series single card configurations

Catalyst 11.6 also adds a handful of new features, such as Steady Video, Image Stabilization brought to you by YouTube, and decode acceleration of MPEG-4 part 2 content in Microsoft video player applications (through MFT support) for all Radeon HD 6000 cards.
