New AMD/ATI Reference Drivers

AMD now offers new version 11.8 Catalyst reference drivers for AMD/ATI graphics cards. The highlight of the new release is the addition of overclocking for AMD Black edition CPUs to AMD Overdrive. The new drivers are available for Windows 7 & Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows XP 32-bit, Windows 7 & Windows Vista 64-bit, and Windows XP 64-bit. There is also a AMD Catalyst Hotfix for “No compatible hardware found” error on AGP graphics cards. Here are the performance highlights:

  • Improves performance up to 10% in Crysis 2 DirectX 11 version for both non-Anti-Aliasing, and application enabled Anti-Aliasing cases on the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series
  • Improves performance up to 8% in Fear 3 DirectX 11 version with application enabled Anti-Aliasing on the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series
  • Improves performance up to 30% when AMD’s Morphological Anti-Aliasing (MLAA) is enabled through the Catalyst™ Control Center on the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series
  • Improves performance up to 20% in Call of Duty Black Operations for single GPU and Multi-GPU configurations on the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series

My nvidia driver is dated 1/2011

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I'm apparently using Catalyst 8.8 from November.

I think I always download these but just forget to run them.
Do newer games work with that old driver? I used to run v9.7, but had problems with newer games with my old, updated XP Pro. SP3 and 4870 (512 MB) video card.

Newish games I've played with it have been Witcher 2, Duke Demo, Brink.

Didn't notice any issues and didn't find myself wanting more frames even with settings maxed.

This is on a 5870.
