AMD has uncorked yet another monthly driver update for its Radeon GPUs. This one, Catalyst 11.8, promises some tweaks to the Control Center interface, including the ability to overclock one's AMD GPU and CPU via the "Overdrive" panel in a single, Fusion-y software interface. There are also a number of in-game performance improvements, most of them related to anti-aliasing in some way. Here's the straight dope from AMD:
The claim of "up to 30%" improvements for MLAA is interesting. MLAA is basically just a post-process filter, so it's easily adjustable via software. Makes us wonder whether the algorithm has changed in a way that impacts the image output. Hmm.
Anyhow, you can download the new Cats right here at AMD's website, of course.
