AMD 11.11c Direct3D Version Problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 2 6870's in crossfire and used the drivers from MSI's website since I have the Twin Frozr III HAWK Edition. I ran the Entry, Performance, High, and Extreme for 3dmark Vantage and the 3 3dmark 11 offers. I took screen shots of my scores to record them.

I then updated to 11.11c and after the first test I noticed a better score and 2-5fps better.

....but when I went to record the software information my Direct3D version is a lot lower. Not sure if this is correct? As you can see in the images below.

Catalyst 10.11
577

Catalyst 11.11c
570

Chances are the driver package overwrote your DirectX install. 7.14.100873 is the version supplied with all 11.11 and 11.12 Catalyst packages. Just grab the latest (9.29.1974) off the MS site.
