Updated version 11.10 reference drivers for AMD/ATI graphics cards are now available, along with new Catalyst application profiles with improved CrossFire performance for Battlefield 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution - The Missing Link, Dead Island, Batman Arkham City (DX9 version), and more. There are new drivers for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit, and Windows XP 64-bit. Thanks Jake.

Known Issues under the Windows Vista Operating System:
Civilization V may experience random crashes when run at High or Medium game settings.
I think I'll just stick with my current drivers until I get around to ordering my new build then...

These drivers have crossfire issues... when I boot Win7 to desktop, GPU1 is downclocked while GPU2 is running at full speed. When I first start Battlefield 3, both GPUs are at full speed, but after awhile, my frame rate take a nose dive and again GPU1 is downclocked while GPU2 is still at full speed.

I haven't tested this but I'm still having the same crossfire issue with BF3. It will start off good then all it takes is an explosion or something and the frame rate tanks. Works well enough with a single card but I'm looking for some performance gains to turn up the eye candy.

5. Release Notes Link; and no more annoying blocked referer annoyances? Nov 1, 2011, 06:46 Ant

Is it me or did AMD finally let go of its strict rules on those who block referrers in web browsers to download?

So, it looks like I'll be rolling back to the 11.10 beta 2 drivers.

BTW, for those playing Rage, these drivers contain an older version of the opengl driver: atioglxx.dll
Cat 11.10 = 6.14.10.11161
Cat 11.10b2 = 6.14.10.11298 - I've had best luck with these.
Cat 11.10b3 = 6.14.10.11299

I have the same 'blue' issue. Where did you grab the atioglxx.dll from, the driver it's self?

NM, here's what I did:
I still had the older drivers installer in C:\AMD\AMD_Catalyst_11.10_Preview3_Windows7_Vista
search for atioglxx.dl_ (look for one in a 64bit if you're 64bit)
and use expand to get it to a dll.

While I don't get shades of blue in Rage, I do get some awful texture flashing with these.

Unfortunately, while this driver fixes all other OpenGL games it now makes RAGE all kinds of different shades of blue. Sorry, not you Blue, the color blue. Ah well, I have 'em installed and just put the 11.10p3 atioglxx.dll file into RAGE's folder just to make it work.
