AMD releases Catalyst 10.11 drivers ... with caveats for HD 5000 or HD 6800 users

Summary:AMD has released Catalyst 10.11 drivers for Windows and Linux users.

AMD has released Catalyst 10.11 drivers for Windows and Linux users.

As usual there are performance increases:

  • Battleforge: Performance increases up to 3% on ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series single and CrossFire configurations with anti-aliasing disabled.
  • STALKER - Call of Pripyat benchmark: Performance increases up to 5% on ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series single and CrossFire configurations

There are also a whole bunch of resolved issues for different operating systems. See the release notes for details.

But ...

AMD is recommending that while average users should download the updated 10.11 drivers, 'enthusiasts,' which means HD 5000 and HD 6800 owners, should stick with the 10.10e driver hotfix release for now and wait for 10.12 to be released next month which will include the changes in the 10.10e release.

Catalyst 10.11 drivers are available for download here or as an update via Steam.
