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.
