A new set of Catalyst drivers is available for AMD Radeon graphics card users. This latest update is numbered 7.11, and AMD says it focuses on stability rather than performance enhancements like the previous one.
According to AMD, the 7.11 Catalysts fix bugs in BioShock, Call of Juarez, Doom 3, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Fable, Hellgate: London, Rainbow Six: Vegas, World in Conflict, and a handful of other titles. A number of bugs pertaining to DVD playback software, AMD's own Catalyst Control Center, high-definition video connectivity, and other issues have also been ironed out. Despite all the fixes that made it into the drivers, however, AMD advises that Crysis players continue to use the Crysis driver hotfix, which is available here.
The Catalyst 7.11 drivers are available for Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows XP (Pro, Home, and Pro x64), and Windows XP Media Center Edition from this page on AMD's Game! website. Detailed release notes that list fixes and outstanding issues can be viewed on this page. AMD has also released Catalyst 7.11 drivers for Linux, introducing "preview support" for Ubuntu 7.10, OpenSUSE 10.3, RedFlag 6.0 DT, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6 and 5.1. The Linux drivers are available on both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.
