New AMD Catalyst 11.11 Supports Stage 3D in Flash

The APU series A and E as well as Radeon HD graphic cards can now run the new technology, which Adobe introduced with its Flash Player 11 in early October.

Additionally, the driver corrects a bug in the game RAGE, which caused some textures to be displayed in blue color. There is also a bezel compensation fix for Far Cry 2, a crash fix for Homefront in Crossfire configurations, a hang fix for DC Universe Online, as well as a range of Windows 7 patches, according to the release notes.

The download of Catalyst 11.11 is offered via AMD's support pages.

Nvidia recently released the beta version of its 285.79 driver, which includes improvements for Battlefield 3 and Skyrim, as well as new game profiles for SLI and 3D Vision.

    Catalyst 11.11 wasn't exactly an exciting release and it's been out for a few days, but according to Andrew D (@CatalystCreator) there's another performance driver they're going to release soon. They're also supposedly still working on a Skyrim Catalyst application profile, but something seems to be holding them up.

    If Flash is so obselete, how come AMD is writing new features for it into its latest drivers?
    ...
    Reports of Flashs demise are greatly exaggerated

    Still have screen tearing issues in Portal 2, as the release notes mentioned. Nothing TOO serious, but I'm hoping drivers will eventually fix that...

    They STILL have no CFX support for Rage. I have both a 5970 in one computer and a GTX480 in another, and the Nvidia card has far, far less issues with new games than the AMD one. Honestly, I dont think I will ever buy another ATI/AMD videocard because of their horrendous drivers ever since i bought the 5970 almost 2 years ago. Its the SAME thing every major release: previous catalyst drivers have a critical performance bug with X major release. Wait a couple of weeks till the bug fix. Then wait for a time after THAT for the CFX CAP (if you're lucky, as I mentioned there STILL isnt one for Rage). Nvidia isnt perfect, and I'm not a fanboy, but their driver team(s) still kick the crap out of AMD's IMHO.

    And dont get me started on how piss-poor Skyrim runs on the 5970. Runs flawlessly at Ultra settings on the 480 though.

    I hear ya, blppt. I'm running a 5970+5870 tri-Crossfire configuration myself. In most games it runs like a charm, but AMD's really been dropping the ball over the last couple of weeks. Not sure what's taking them so long to roll some of these out, especially since some people are able to create their own multi-GPU profiles using 3rd party tools such as RadeonPro.

    Both Nvidia and AMD seem to have struggling driver teams as of late, but Nvidia's got the upper hand here since they at least have something to show for it.

    Duude, multi-gpu setups..especially on a single card; you're going to have issues because the amount of people who own those setups is much lower. a.k.a your a lower priority to nvidia or ati/amd. I don't mean to sound like an ass, but that's just the harsh reality of it.
