AMD Catalyst 11.7 Drivers Now Available for Download

/u69/catalyst_logo.jpg" width="228" height="190" style="float: right;" />AMD on Wednesday made available it's Catalyst 11.7 driver package for Radeon graphics card owners, and in doing so, the chip maker fixed a barrel full of issues, many of them related to Windows 7. AMD said the Catalyst 11.7 package addresses any and all quirks with mouse cursor lag, and if you've been experiencing system hangs on specific HDMI and DisplayPort displays using the previous driver package, 11.7 will fix that too.

Some of the other resolved issues in Windows 7 include:

  • Blu-ray playback using PowerDVD under High Performance no longer randomly hangs or displays a blank screen
  • Some DiVX format files no longer display video corruption using WinDVD
  • Random screen corruption is no longer displayed when changing desktop themes
  • PowerDVD now correctly handles 3D Blu-ray content
  • Portal 2 no longer displays flickering on water surface textures with Medium and Low Shader detail settings
  • Wraparound corruption is no longer displayed intermittently after exiting a 3D application

AMD didn't list any performance improvements in the Catalyst 11.7 Release Notes, and there are still a number of open issues for Windows 7 users. Stars Wars Jedi Knight II and Jedi Academy may randomly crash on launch, for example, and if your livelihood depends on Photoshop, be aware that image rotation might not function correctly in Photoshop CS5, and you may lose OpenGL acceleration as well.
