AMD have released their Catalyst 11.11 driver today, with it bringing Adobe Flash Player 11 support which enables the full support of the GPU accelerated Stage 3D API and Stage 3D applications. It is supported on the AMD Radeon HD Series of GPUs, A-Series and E-Series APUs.
Highlights of the Linux-based 11.11 driver are, support for OpenSUSE 12.1 early look support and seamless GPU compute support. The AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) OpenCL runtime is now enabled by default within the AMD Catalyst driver for Linux.
