Catalyst 11.12 Windows 7 Driver Analysis - Catalyst 11.12 Windows 7 Driver Analysis
Wed, Dec 14 2011 | 4:10PM | Filed under: Drivers| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

I shouldn`t be doing this at the moment; instead I should be packing for my holidays, but after discovering that we haven`t missed a Catalyst Driver Analysis in seven years, I didn`t want this to be the first one. So with that said, we`ll move with haste and just get stuck into the performance side of things to see what exactly is going on with the latest driver set from AMD - the Catalyst 11.12. Quickly before we do that, though, we need to check out the release notes. To be honest, going through the release notes, you`re not going to see anything that stands out too much. We`ve got some improvements in some areas and as always we find ourselves with a decent list of resolved issues, but on the performance side of things we`re not seeing a whole lot."

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
