AMD releases Catalyst 11.8

Written by
radeon_logo_new

Now with CPU overclocking
AMD released the latest version of its Catalyst driver pack and for the first time ever the new drivers will also feature CPU overlocking.

The driver also features the usual performance improvements and bug fixes. AMD promises better performance in Crysis 2, FEAR 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops and improved morphological anti-aliasing.

The CPU overclocking features appears limited to Black Edition processors, so not everyone will benefit from it. New AMD APUs don’t appear to be supported, at least not in this version, but there’s always the next version.

You can find the new driver here.

These drivers upped my WEI score from 7.7, 7.7, to 7.8, 7.8 for graphics.

Way to go AMD!

drop the fanboy crap, and quit searching for excuses... NO ONE in my group of about ten guys that play SC2 with nvidia cards had any issues...or any games for that matter.
