AMD has made the final version of the Catalyst 11.9 drivers available for Windows users. As in the previous version of the package, most desktop and laptop DirectX 10 and 11 GPUs are supported, but Windows 7 users need Service Pack 1 to be installed.
The new drivers enable 3D support via DisplayPort and AMD tells us that the Samsung 750 and 950 displays are specifically supported. This time there are no particular performance enhancements listed for any games, though hanging and crashing issues in several games have been resolved.
The new drivers can be downloaded from AMD's web site, through the Catalyst software's automatic updater, or via Steam. The final version of the 11.10 drivers will replace the 11.9 drivers when they're made available next month.
