Catalyst 11.7 Windows 7 Driver Analysis

 

Introduction

 

AMD couldn't cut it any finer this month with the latest version of the Catalyst drivers. They came out so late in October that we had already ticked over to November 1 on the other side of the world here.

 

If you're under the impression they came so late because AMD was cramming them full of improvements, you'll find yourself sadly mistaken. Checking out the release notes, you're not going to find any performance improvements.

 

You've got the normal array of bug fixes, but something that actually stood out came in the form of Eyefinity improvements.

 

Bezel compensation is now possible when using sets of displays that have mismatched pixel densities.

 

This is a nice added bonus for people who are using Eyefinity and have mismatched pixel densities. Apart from this, though, there's not much else to the driver. There's a few other things in the release notes which you can check out here, but really, not much to get all that excited about.

 

So with that all said and done, let's just get stuck into the testbed page and then get onto the performance to see if there are any negative or positive improvements when compared to the last Catalyst driver set we looked at.
