AMD Catalyst 11.10 Preview for Battlefield 3 Edition


AMD Catalyst logo


UPDATE 3: the preview of Cat 11.10 is now available at AMD: AMD Catalyst 11.10 Hotfix for Windows 7 32-bit / 64-bit Edition (147MB).

UPDATE 2: download ok (more than one hour!). Here is the software information of Cat 11.10 from the CCC:

There’s no new OpenGL extension (still 219 like Cat 11.7).

UPDATE 1: the fully package (147MB) is hosted at megaupload. But it’s really slow…


Like NVIDIA, AMD has pushed online a driver optimized for Battlefield 3 (should be released at the end of October). But unlike NVIDIA, this preview of Catalyst 11.10 has few minor problems (at the time of writing: 2011.09.27, 5:50am!): 😀

At the same time, the driver installer is a 24MB file only. That could explain the file corruption. I guess AMD has forgot the biggest part of the driver somewhere, the driver team is certainly too busy with the test of BF3!

I will update the post as soon as AMD puts online a fully working driver.

Anyway, here are the new things brought by this preview of preview 😀

  • Improves performance in Battlefield 3 Open Beta release for both non-Anti-Aliasing, and application enabled Anti-Aliasing cases on the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series for single GPU configurations
  • Improves performance in Battlefield 3 Open Beta release for both non-Anti-Aliasing, and application enabled Anti-Aliasing cases on CrossFire configurations using the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series
  • Enables support for Eyefinity 5×1 display (portrait and landscape) configurations using the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series
  • Vision Engine Control Center: User Interface enhancements have been implemented for the CrossfireX, GPU Overdrive, and Information Center pages.

    That “minor problem” of yours is due to corrupted download, has nothing to do with AMD’s release. And must download from only AMD site not megaupload.
