AMD Releases ATI Catalyst 10.11 Graphics

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 49 comments

Gotta love the fresh feeling of another new hundredth point.

Ready to freshen your AMD/ATI driver set? The new Catalyst 10.11 have just been released.

The 10.11 set contains the following:  

·  AMD display driver version 8.791

·  HydraVision for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7

·  Southbridge/IXP Driver

·  AMD Catalyst Control Center version 8.791

Like other driver releases, are there small performance improvements. The boosts are less notable than in other major releases, faster is always better.

·  Battleforge: Performance increases up to 3% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 Series single and CrossFire configurations with anti-aliasing disabled. 

·  STALKER – Call of Pripyat benchmark: Performance increases up to 5% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 Series single and CrossFire configurations

Check out the full release notes here and grab the download here.

    V3ctorThanks for another bad drivers ATI... My Mobility HD2600 usually sits at 38ºc in idle, when I put 10.7 > 10.11... My GPU at idle stays at 57ºc... So, thanks for trying to kill my notebook... :X

    if you have a toshiba, sony or panasonic notebook, the release notes clearly state that this is not compatible with those products. so it's your fault if you install them and have problems...

    Well there is a good reason why you should stay at the 10.7 then. Especially considering that the HD2K series has not gotten any real performance updates since well the 9 series of drivers.

    Much like the newer drivers don't seem to have any real performance upgrades for the HD4K series anymore.

    ..


    also have the mobility hd2600 and my idle temp is still 37°C after installing 10.11. but i noticed a HUGE improvment in flash apps. maybe because of the openCL driver? i thought only 5000 and above are capable...

    I wonder if it fixes the problem the other versions cause (for me) in Windows Media Player?

    did they fix dual screen flicking issues with 95% of ati 5850/70/5770/6850/70 users? AND the VERY annoying cursor bug in sc2, I still like the perfs I'm getting though, all games silky smooth... BUT FIX THOSE DAMN PROBLEMS

    Very small updates - recent ATI updates have been ever more incremental. That's a good thing, as it seems drivers are getting mature.

    Now if they'd only come up with half decent Linux drivers... I really want to make Ubuntu 10.10 my main desktop OS, but gaming is still impossible. It's not AMD's fault devs don't natively support Linux, but half decent drivers would at least make Wine a bit more viable. I guess just fixing Wine would be even better though...

    ATI, more drivers more hot fixes....Good Hardware, but crippled by software.

    I wish they would fix the idle core/mem clocks. I have to say with ccc 10.3 or else my 5850 idles at 50*C, its bs. I dont know why they cant just fix it.

    I really wish they made an auto-updater for their drivers.

    skineYes.

    Thank you. It was an honest question, I don't know why people downranked me. I JUST assembled my first AMD/ATI card 2 days ago and I didn't know for sure.

    Funny how every single release seems to have Call of Pripyat performance improvements.

    TBH I really ever wonder if there's any point to upgrade your video drivers beyond any specifically noted fixes/performance enhancements mentioned. Really, I'm sure the drivers from this time last year don't really make any difference for my 4870.

    I have a Toshiba, and the drivers always worked fine... And Toshiba, Sony or Panasonic, don't have any special breed of GPU's... It's just a precautionary measure from those vendors (aka stay with 8.5 drivers forever). A GPU is a GPU.
