AMD has issued a new release of its Catalyst graphics card drivers, bringing the package up to version 11.11. Where last month's 11.10 release was all about Battlefield 3 and Rage performance tweaks, today's highlights include support for Flash Player 11 and its Stage 3D architecture for hardware accelerated graphics rendering, which Adobe says will enable a new class of console-quality games and immersive apps on browsers.
According to the release notes, the new Catalyst 11.11 drivers enable GPU accelerated Stage 3D API and Stage 3D applications across all Radeon HD GPUs as well as A- and E-series APUs. Besides this the new Catalyst release includes updated versions of AMD's display driver, Hydravision for Windows XP through Windows 7, Southbridge/IXP driver and the AMD Catalyst Control Center/AMD Vision Engine Control Center.
As far as bug squashing is concerned AMD mentions it fixed an issue with corrupted images and textures in Rage, corrected bezel compensation for Far Cry 2, fixed screen tearing while moving a window on the desktop in Clone or Eyefinity mode, fixed a black screen issue when extending displays, fixed random crashing of Homefront when Crossfire is enabled, and fixed another crashing issue in DC - Universe Online.
