As promised early Monday, AMD has released a "preview" driver with improved performance for the just-launched Battlefield 3 Open Beta. The news arrives after Nvidia released its new GeForce 285.38 beta drivers which promise up to 38-percent better performance in the Battlefield 3 Open Beta compared to the previously-released 285.27 drivers.
Although AMD didn't specify percentages in reference to improved performance, users should see better results for both non-Anti-Aliasing and application-enabled Anti-Aliasing cases on the AMD Radeon HD 6000 and AMD Radeon HD 5000 Series for single GPU and CrossFire configurations.
Monday the company also said that the new Catalyst 11.10 Preview driver enables support for Eyefinity 5x1 display (portrait and landscape) configurations using the AMD Radeon HD 6000 and AMD Radeon HD 5000 Series. The Vision Engine Control Center has also been updated with UI enhancements for the CrossfireX, GPU Overdrive, and Information Center pages.
