AMD Eyefinity and VECC/CCC enhancements


AMD has rolled out the latest incarnation of the Catalyst driver, the Catalyst 11.10. Although it doesn't feature many performance improvements, other than those for Rage and Battlefield 3 that were already available, the new driver brings a few new enhancements for those handful of enthusiasts who are using AMD Eyefinity, as well as some other AMD VECC/CCC enhancements.

The new driver supports all the Radeon HD cards since the Radeon HD 2000 series as well as Radeon 3000 and 4000 series chipset. The new Catalyst pack features AMD display driver v8.902, AMD's HydraVision driver, Southbridge/IXP driver and AMD Catalyst Control Center v8.920 as well as AMD Vision Engine Control Center v8.902.

The new driver doesn't bring any new performance improvements but does fix some issues found under Windows 7, Vista or XP OS and game titles like Mafia II, Lost Planet 2, F1 2010, Dirt 2 and other applications. The Catalyst pack does include some new features like the AMD Eyefinity enhancements including support for Eyefinity 5x1 portrait and landscape display configurations, increased maximum resolution to 16000x16000 on AMD's Radeon HD 6000 series and DX11 applications, and ability to set bezel compensation when using sets of displays that have mismatched pixel densities.

The AMD VECC/CCC enhancements include the improvements in the AMD Overdrive and Information Center parts of the the VECC/CCC.

As always, the driver is available for Windows 7, Vista and XP in both 32 and 64-bit versions. You can find it here.

"other than those for Rage and Battlefield 3 that were already available"

Have you CONFIRMED this as a fact, or are you just stating your opinion? It's become so hard lately to distinguish that in Fud articles lately.

"The new drive doesn't bring any new performance improvements "

Stating it twice in an article doesn't make it MORE true. Where is the editor when you need one? Oh you just end up rereading your articles cause you can't afford an editor? Oh, Mmkay.

This is just an updated preview driver, and yes it includes the fixs for BF3 and Rage.

How about just doing what any smart person would, assume all meida is biased and do your own research if you care about the topic.

I do, but why should I if that's their job? :)

Well it fixed rage for me, no more random freezing and the texture poping. Didn't see any changes in bf3 though, still runs fine.

Yeah BF3 still runs fine, still the black spots in BF2 though and the only way to fix that is to go way back to 9.3, so that's not going to happen for me. My buddy is doing some tests on his 6990s so that will be the real confirmation from him if things get fixed.
