Brings Crossfire support for Skyrim


AMD has rolled out a second Catalyst Performance driver update, the Catalyst 11.11b. Featuring all the updates previously seen in the 11.11a update, the new performance driver fixes the Crossfire performance scaling but only for AMD Radeon HD 6000 series cards.

According to the release notes, the new Catalyst 11.11b performance driver brings all the updates from the last weeks 11.11a update including 2-7% performance improvemet in Skyrim on single GPU configurations, Batman Arkham City DirectX 11 improvements, Rage CrossfireX performance scalling improvement and bunch of graphics fixes, and Battlefield 3 corruption fix.

In addition to those 11.11a fixes and perfomance improvements, the new Catalyst 11.11b performance drivers also brings new Crossfire performance scaling for the Elder Scrolls Skyrim when running on Radeon HD 6000 series cards and Crossfire performance scaling for the Assassin's Creed: Revelations game. Those running on Radeon HD 5000 series cards in Crossfire will still have to wait a bit longer, but AMD promised an updated driver with Crossfire Skyrim support.

As always, the new driver can be found here.

Hey Warrior, am I not glad to see you back. So is Nvidia performance years ahead AMD? Nope, not at all. Drivers are only as good as the hardware, and from what I am seeing the performance is the same for both sides in terms of price to performance, radeon hd 6970 costs less than gtx 580 and performs a little less, so the next time before you start trolling remember that you are only making fun of yourself by throwing mud on AMD/ATI, and giving Nvidia and Intel fans a bad name.

Wait?! So my HD 5970 won't get Crossfire support in Skyrim?!?!? :oops:
Oh, I see that I just have to wait a bit longer. No worries, it's running quite smoothly on 11.11a at 2560x1600 with most quality settings at max except moderate anti-aliasing at the moment. :-)

first of all both companies have performance drivers for almost all games released. and Nvidia has some serious issues with BF3. and secondly who let this guy join again and if its who i think it is why isnt his IP blocked? and where is the ban hammer i thought we were past those dark times here?

@ faildozzer, Whilst AMD work on their drivers you should work on your english (grammar).
