AMD Catalyst 11.1 WHQL Available

AMD Catalyst logo

AMD has published the January 2011 version of Catalyst display drivers.
You can grab your version here: AMD Catalyst Downloads.

This driver should be labelled with the number 8.812.

Keep in mind that Catalyst drivers are available with and without OpenCL support. If you need OpenCL you have to download the APP version of Catalyst.The APP version installs the ATI Stream SDK v2.3 to enable OpenCL support.

Okay Cat11.1 WHQL are out now but don’t forget the hotfix 11.1a Jan26 (released before the WHQL!) including stuff that will be available in Cat 11.2. You can find the Cat 11.1a download link HERE. I didn’t install Cat11.1 WHQL because the hotfix works fine!

    Watch out the whql drivers are not so good in term of performance than the beta leaked drivers 11.1 hotfix a…

    U should have more performance , at least with my hardware, without the whql driver… Avoid it and enjoy new performance increase of the beta drivers including new tessellation tab , surfaces optimizations (on my 5970 everything is fine !).

    Many people have noticed that fact : final driver is weaker than leaked one … Omg thx to AMD , you’ll never stop downloading odd exotic stuff…

    Final driver brings
    Performance improvements for AMD Radeon™ HD 6900 & AMD Radeon HD 6800  series graphics cards,
    preserving the detail provided .
    Also notices increase in crossfire mode with my “old” 5970…
