November's revision of AMD's Catalyst drivers, v8.11, are now available to download from game.amd.com.
The release, available for Windows XP and Windows Vista, brings the Radeon display driver up from version 8.541 to version 8.552, and provides two healthy performance boosts for Radeon HD 3000 and 4000-series products.
Ubisoft's graphically-demanding Far Cry 2 is said to receive a single-GPU performance boost of 3-10 per cent, and multi-GPU CrossFire users can expect to see gains in the region of 8-14 per cent.
The second jump in performance applies to GSC Game World's S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky. AMD promises single-GPU gains of 6-18 per cent and CrossFire improvements of up to 30 per cent.
On the new-feature front, Catalyst 8.11 adds HydraVision support to Windows XP, and there's a lengthy list of resolved issues.
For a complete breakdown of what Catalyst 8.11 has to offer, including all the resolved issues, please refer to the official release notes at game.amd.com.
