Performance Enhancements

Call of Duty Black Ops – gains of up to 15% with Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering on single GPU configurations.
Battleforge – gains of up to 15% with Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering on single and multiple GPU configurations.

Much more information and changes here.

Choose your OS and download here.

If anyone is interested, before I installed 11.4 I ran the AvP DX11 Benchmark (everything maxed out in Config) so I could see the performance differences with crossfire.

Benchmark Summary:

Number of frames: 8064
Average Frame Time: 13.0ms
Average FPS: 76.9

11.4 >
Benchmark Summary:

Number of frames: 8402
Average Frame Time: 12.5ms
Average FPS: 80.1

Just trying these out now, I've noticed a few extra FPS in Shift 2, but thats probably the only game I have new enough to see any benefits from the drivers, I was running the pre-release 11.4's (released last month)

The pre-lease numbers were comparing to the performance of 6990 on 10.9.

The also listed performance gains vrs 11.2 and I think that they were the same as these numbers...at least close.

I just started using the pre-11.4's about five days ago...I suppose I should install the officials though.

However, I assume that any claimed performacne gains are largle only meant for the 6XXX series and I am still with 5850's so I probably could just stick with 11.2 or 11.3 anyway

Looks like a lot of goodies for the 69xx crowd, but I see no 5800 series love

Sticking with 9.12's I suppose...
post #7 of 101
I wanna switch over but will changing drivers mess up my folding? Ofcourse I stop folding when installing but when it goes back to folding will the new drivers cause it to mess up, seeing how its been using the 11.3 drivers?

I heard people have actually gotten noticeable frame increases even with a 5xxx series.

I'm definitely updating when my second 5850 gets here. I hope they fixed the laggy cursor over the "X" button in a browser.

I just installed 11.4 , looks good so far. I really like the button to create Eyefinity group

I tried the Eyefinity group with the only two monitors I have and it was fine, except of course my other monitor is 1680x1050 and my main one is 1920x1080.

But I like the driver so far, about to run through some games and see how it is.
