AMD releases Catalyst 11.11c performance driver

Crossfire scaling for HD 5000 in Skyrim


As was promised with the release of the 11.11b performance driver, AMD has now launched yet another performance driver that fixes performance scaling on Radeon HD 5000 series graphics cards in the Elder Scrolls Skyrim.

AMD received a lot of bad press over driver performance in some games for quite a while now, but it looks as if that the company is finally getting it right, as we have seen a couple of performance drivers and tweaks in a very short period of time. The first performance 11.11 driver was released on 22nd of November. In addition to the added Crossfire scaling for the AMD Radeon HD 5000 series cards in Elder Scrolls Skyrim, the new Catalyst 11.11c performance driver also brings all the performance improvements, tweaks and fixes seen in the Catalyst 11.11a performance driver.

Of course, it is mostly a minor update or two for new game titles but it is definitely a way to go. Hopefully, we'll see these "performance drivers" in future as well. 

The new driver can be found here, but unless you are running on Radeon HD 5000 series cards in Crossfire and want to play Skyrim, you'll be fine with the 11.11a as that is the one with all the performance improvements.
