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.

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,)
