AMD updates Catalyst display drivers

Written by Nick Farell


Two weeks after it upgraded
It seems that AMD is getting upgrade happy with its Catalyst display drivers. Two weeks ago after releasing version 11.4 it is now asking users to upgrade to 11.5.

This sort of things happens when an upgrade has a bug, but this time it appears that there is just additional functionality rather than any problems. The upgrade applies to Radeon HD 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 series graphics cards, and Radeon 3000 and 4000 series chipsets.

AMD made a couple of enhancements to its HydraGrid feature found in HydraVision, which is now aware of user created Bezels with Catalyst 11.5 installed, and also includes an 'Automatic Grid' option that aligns to the user defined Eyefinity display layout.

The site seems to suggest that the upgrade is more about fixing bugs in the driver's operations with Windows 7, and one in Windows XP. Nothing major anyway.

The 2-week thing, I think, is not an upgrade-happytasticphil ia thing ... it's just that they insist to put out one driver release every month and they got to the end of April without quite getting some good features in - so they just release the latest stable drivers build with whatever bugfixes and whatnot.

And now it's only taken them 2 weeks to get a good feature stable, so they're releasing this month's drivers ... now they have a whole 7 weeks to do something useful to the drivers before having to release again.

See Nick, it isn't that difficult to post news about (yawn!) driver updates when it occurs.

the 11.5a hotfix has a couple of extra fixes in it, including one for the mouselag issue that hit some people.
