AMD Catalyst 11.11C Performance Driver Released

DSOGaming writes: "Great news for all AMD fans as the Red team has released a new version for their Catalyst drivers. According to its release notes, Catalyst 11.11C come with improved performance on Batman: Arkham City, as well as AMD CrossfireX performance scaling for AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series and improved performance on single GPU configurations that is up to 7% on Skyrim. These drivers are also essential to all PC assassins as they feature improved performance on Assassin’s Creed: Revelations."

Nice, now I'll finally be able to play Battlefield 3 on max settings with my 5570 without the frame rate dropping.

I guess the people who disagreed don't know you're being sarcastic.

They've released it? I just checked AMD's website and didn't see anything new.

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I may have found it after searching a bit.

Anyway, sounds good. I can't believe how poor the support for Crossfire has been lately. The last 3 games I bought (RAGE, Skyrim, Arkham City) haven't had proper CF support.

Yeah, AMD really dropped the ball when it came to Crossfire support on some of this years biggest games. I can perhaps forgive a slight delay on profiles for lesser known titles, but having to wait for a new driver and CAP for Skyrim was ridiculous, should have been there ready to download on or before release. Makes you wonder what the AMD driver team spend their time on.

These have been out for a few days now, and they're pretty much just the 11.11b drivers with Skyrim 5000 series crossfire support added, so if you aren't using crossfire on a 5000 card and already have the 11.11b drivers then theres no point in updating, especially considering we'll probably see a 11.11d driver soon enough.

I just tested it out. Oblivion actually runs properly in Crossfire now. It's still a bit hoggish, but I have more than enough power to deal with that.

At launch, it was a slideshow in CF. It was shockingly bad. Now it's really smooth for me at max.
