  1. AMD has released the first significant Catalyst update since the recent debut of its Radeon HD 6800 series(besides 10.10c), but oddly enough, the new arrivals aren't listed as supported products. The release notes for Catalyst 10.11 shows compatibility for the Radeon HD 2400 through the HD 5900 series, but neither the 6850 nor 6870 are mentioned. We're waiting to hear back from AMD on whether those cards were purposefully excluded, but we assume it's just an oversight and both are covered by the latest driver suite.

    Was hoping to see the 5 series get morphological anti-aliasing support on this release but I guess not. Perhaps it will still come on a later release.

    Get the 10.10e if your running windows 7. They support it and oddly enough are newer than the 10.11. Just make sure you disable it when your not using it in games. Apparently it causes font issues etc.

    i uninstalled my current driver, restarted, installed the 10.11 driver, restarted, checked the CCC(catalyst command center) and this is what i saw
    driver packaging version 8.791-random numbers and letters
    catalyst version 10.11
    2d driver version 8.01.01.1094
    direct 3d version 8.14.10.0791
    openGL version 6.14.10.10317
    catalyst control center version 2010.1026.2246.39002
    i think it only installed the CCC and didn't update my drivers, any help?
