AMD releases Catalyst 10.11 graphics drivers

By on November 17, 2010, 3:00 PM
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.

Owners of previous generation products can expect usual performance enhancements and bug fixes. Folks running a Radeon HD 5800-series card should receive a 3% boost in Battleforge with anti-aliasing disabled, as well as up to 5% in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat benchmark. Meanwhile, AMD has resolved an issue that caused the mouse cursor to flicker in World of Warcraft, and another that caused the primary display to go blank when playing World in Conflict: Soviet Assault. You can read the full release notes here for a complete list of fixes and known issues, or just download your copy below:

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?
