New ATI Catalyst Drivers

AMD now offers new version 11.11 Catalyst reference drivers for AMD/ATI graphics cards. There are new drivers for 32 bit Windows Vista/Windows 7, 32 bit Windows XP, and 64 bit Windows Vista/Windows 7. They offer a link to Release Notes, but these don't seem to be available yet. Thanks g00f.

Will these solve the microstutter problem? Ive got the 6870 card, and the game runs with virtually no problems on High, but it suffers from those pesky Microstutters every once in a while....

I have a 1gig 4870 Sapphire and Skyrim runs almost flawlessly, it has crashed a few times however.
I have the same card and I can confirm that it runs great. (Exquisite taste btw )

I was able to bump up the graphic options with little frame loss.

I wonder if he reads them, or if it's just for show.

Edit: I think I'm full of crap, because 11.10 is doing the same thing. Weird circle shadow near the fire inside one interior.

I'm using a 5770, and Skyrim has been extremely stable with the 11.10, and now 11.11 drivers. Around 10 hours in, and no crashes. In fact, it's running the game flawlessly.


Ditto here with no crashes.

30+ hours here with no crashes, though my framerate will occasionally tank for very brief periods with no clear reason why. This is on a 5850, but I'm not even certain it's a video related issue.

Im sticking with the the latest ones 11.10 final ver which works great for me. I sent my Rage back as I never got the chance to shoot one bullet, as it crashed and crashed.

11.10 has crashed on me once in Skyrim over 20 hours. This compared with Fallout 3 which would crash once every 20-50 minutes, I'm happy as a clam. I'll be giving these a go.

11.10 v.3 was a total nightmare on my system - the lighting was improved in Rage ahd the indoor framerate was increased, but the outside areas would start stuttering and I would only go 10 minutes or so until a crash.

I rolled back to 11.10 v.2 and Rage was fine except for the occasional flicker of a flag. Using the same drivers, Skyrim was relatively stable - only two crash to desktops in 18 hours of play.

Trying 11.11, the framerate is higher on both "High" and "Ultra" settings, though I have noticed spots here or there where, when quickly turning to face them, the shadows actually take a second to move into place (they start a few inches away and then roll into place,) but it has only happened in a few places.
AMD does seem to suck at drivers these days, though.
Edit: This is on a 6950-2GB.

Looovvviinnngg Skyrim (and thinking about how much Rage sucks,)

I'm running a 6950 and I have been completely stable. Once when I chose to quit, it closed with an illegal operation like the previous games often did, but that's all. I've played about 10 hours with the 8.10 drivers, then I thought to update to 10.10 for Skyrim and played another 10 hours since then. It's been stable with both sets. Didn't realise 11.10 was a day away!

Performance wise I am CPU limited, interiors and some widerness I get ~60fps on Ultra but I can't manage it in some of the towns so I play on High. Might have to look into an upgrade, apart from the 6950 it's all a couple of years old, it's that long since I felt like I wanted to upgrade for a game.

In my usual fashion I'm using outdated drivers...

11.8 on Sapphire 5870 running both BF3 and Skyrim maxed without issues.

No point in getting these if they don't have fixes for the newest games... They've put out releases in the last few days of the month before, so it's not like time was an issue for them.

I get maybe 1 or 2 CTDs a night on my 5870 on the 11.10s, annoying but hardly rage worthy. Just installed the 11.11s, if they're worse I kept the 11.10s available.

5870 here and Skyrim is very stable. I crashed it twice when changing game timescale or bumping up the graphics settings to extreme settings in the .ini's. Those were my own fault. Using the newest 11.10's but I'm tempted to install these and hope there's some improvement.

and better, actual working games have since come out, making Rage thus far a massive waste of $60 and they declined refunds the week of release even though the game was unplayable for most.

Ditto!
