Swiftly following on from the Catalyst 11.10 V3 preview set, AMD has delivered the official WHQL Catalyst 11.10 drivers, as expected.

In addition to the performance enhancements we've already covered, AMD tells us that it has made enhancements to Eyefinity, and the Vision Engine Control / Catalyst Control Centers.

  • Enables support for Eyefinity 5x1 display (portrait and landscape) configurations.
  • Maximum supported resolution has been increased to 16000 x 16000 pixels on the AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series. (limited to DX11 applications only).
  • Bezel compensation is now possible when using sets of displays that have mismatched pixel densities.
  • Improvements have been implemented to better facilitate the enabling and control of the following features within the Vision Engine Control Center / Catalyst Control Center:
    • AMD Overdrive for GPUs.
    • Information Center (software and hardware).

For Windows 7 users, Catalyst 11.10 implements resolutions for the following issues:

  • Some OpenGL games like Enemy Territory Quake Wars no longer experiences random corruption.
  • Lost Planet 2 no longer experiences random crashes when running the benchmark.
  • F1 2010 and Dirt 2 no longer experience random flashing during the game.
  • Google Earth no longer displays random corruption when running in OpenGL mode.
  • Mafia II no longer experiences a random crash during game loading / game play when Crossfire is enabled.
  • Unigine Heaven running in DirectX 11 mode no longer experiences a performance drop when running with Dual Graphics enabled.
  • Homefront no longer experiences random game crashes.
  • Random flashing is no longer experienced when playing back SD/BD content on a 120Hz monitor.
  • An application crash is no longer randomly observed while playing M2V/Mpeg2/Mpeg4 files and toggling the Hardware Acceleration setting.
  • Display corruption is no longer experienced on the primary display when running in extended display mode with AERO enabled.

For Windows Vista users, here's what Catalyst 11.10 resolves for you:

  • Display corruption is no longer experienced on the primary display when running in extended display mode with AERO enabled.
  • Scaling options are now correctly displayed when connecting DisplayPort / DFP monitors.
  • An application crash is no longer randomly observed while playing M2V/Mpeg2/Mpeg4 files and toggling the Hardware Acceleration setting.

Lastly, for Windows XP users, Catalyst 11.10 packs in the following:

  • An application crash is no longer randomly observed while playing M2V/Mpeg2/Mpeg4 files and toggling the Hardware Acceleration setting.
  • Display corruption is no longer experienced on the primary display when running in extended display mode with AERO enabled.
