  1. For those of you waiting eagerly for AMD to deliver a Crossfire profile for Skyrim, they can be had here in the form of 11.11b

    They can be had here;

    I was going to link the hotfix yeasterday, but people still seem to have issues with the driver (noteably graphical corruption)-some of which will be game bugs rather than driver related, although this driver seems to break other games - noteably the near unbreakable Supreme Commander !
    I don't play TESV so I've not worried about the hotfix. People are reporting that BF3 runs faster but may freeze-not a biggie for me as BF3 is on the Nv rig.
    Might pay to check out the forums if anyone is actively playing a number of games -may save the need to start a thread.

    I am starting to see the same elsewhere, I am wondering if the file is bad.

    Possibility...depends on what comes out first - a press release for a new link, or 11.11c

    Feels more like a rush job to me- maybe only limited code testing and a few new games released back-to-back that need attention ( Rage, Skyrim, BF3, Batman:AC ) stretching resources.

    Unsurprising.
    RPG players I think would rather sell their families into slavery than have anything disrupt their game

    Hear anything negative about 11c so far? Tempted to give it a try as I've passed on the last couple due to reading people having more problems than improvements.

    Doesn't seem much different from the 11.11b from what I'm reading ( [ Steam] [TPU]) except that the HD5000 series are supposedly catered for. The release notes for 11.11b and 11.11c seems exactly the same.

    You might need to either try for yourself or browse the enthusiast/gaming forums- mainstream site threads are probably composed of the usual 90% FUD/trolling.

    Ya guess I'll give them a shot, always hard to judge what's real or not on many feedback threads. Always turns into flamewars between AMD & NVIDIA fans with the eventual Hitler analogy anyway :( .

    11.11b did Crossfire for Skyrim on 6000 series cards, as well as what was in the first post.

    11.11c did Crossfire for Skyrim on the 5000 series cards only.

    Also, you are to use the CAP2's with both of these drivers.

    You forgot this entry in the release notes:

    Elder Scrolls Skyrim
    New in Catalyst 11.11b: Delivers AMD CrossFire performance scaling for AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series
    AMD Radeon HD 5000 CrossFire support will be supported soon in an updated driver
