AMD and Nvidia driver teams have been putting in some pretty serious overtime trying to keep up with the flood of new titles hitting the market just before the holidays, and a third profile update just went live for AMD’s less than one month old Catalyst 11.11. Just in-case you’d lost count, in addition to the three profile updates, AMD has also released three separate beta drivers to fix various other issues with specific titles. If you like to be on the bleeding edge, make sure you have Catalyst 11.11C, along with the just released CAP3.
AMD Crossfire users struggling to maintain a passable frame rate in Saints Row 3 or Gothic 4 take note. AMD has released Catalyst 11.11 WHQL CAP 2, which enables Crossfire profiles for both titles, and most importantly, lets you make full use of both graphics cards. If like me you were hoping Skyrim would make the cut for this latest CAP we have bad news for you, it didn’t. The last update from AMD on this front was 5 days ago, and said little more than they were hoping to release it ASAP.
Considering that NVidia had drivers ready on launch day, we can’t help but wonder what’s taking so long. Hit the jump for the complete release notes.
AMD's Catalyst software suite version 11.11 is all polished up and ready for installation. The big new feature in the latest Catalyst suite is Adobe Flash Player 11 support, which enables full support of the GPU accelerated Stage 3D API and Stage 3D applications. AMD Radeon HD Series GPUs, A-Series APU, and E-Series APUs are all supported by this, AMD says.
