The driver anti-aliasing doesn't work properly with a kinda old online game I usually play, Phantasy Star Universe. With the driver anti-aliasing enabled, enemies/traps/players models sometimes disappear for a second or so.
With 11.9 I don't have this issue, so I'll just use those. ^^;

Yes, you are correct!

Although when you run the installer it claims its the same, there is indeed another driver file added. and the CCC components are newer.

So for all those that downloaded it early, or used the megaupload links etc, redownload and reinstall!

Not sure if the guru3d links contain the 26 September one or the latest Direct AMD 26 September one.

REMEMBER: despite the date and installer claiming its the same, its NOT!!

Yep, I think the one mirrored in Guru3D is an older one a.k.a. version 1 of the same date.

Better re-download the driver package now, folks, before spyre tries to blame us for our inability to understand 'how FTP works'.

Nope, new version is still there

You have to uninstall the 'old' 26 September drivers before installing the newer '26 September' drivers, which also includes Vista support.

Many times I have a very annoying flickerīs as a black-white horizontal lines in Battlefield 3 Beta.
Sometimes I have also flickering's, but the strange thing is that if I record with Fraps at all that disappears, removing the recording appear again.

I have a CrossFireX HD 6970, Catalyst 11.10 Preview, and do not know how to correct those flicker-flickerings, on BBC2, these flashes are corrected and Bloom BSAO off, but I see that are still here.

There are only flickers CF configurations AMD 6000 Series.

I must say that is not the fault of the graphics cards, as only happens to me here, and then on BBC2 this phenomenon is well known for users of AMD.

Someone else has the same problem?

Regards

Ye.

Especially when i play on Caspian, sometimes when i ADS it seems there's even more of them and my framerate drops a lot too.

So yea, this game needs some patches. This build is 3 weeks old though, but why they won't release any PC update now as it doesn't require any extra QA testing?

Nobody knows. If i see this in the retail version, i'll rage.

This caps

They are automatically installed when you install the drivers (MOST if not all of the preview/rc/betas have CAPS)
If you installed the 11.08 CAPS 5, uninstall everything and install this previews drivers again.

Should I install the 11.10 again? They're still 147MB for me on the AMD install, does it contain important upgrade files?

Well, here's an interesting Benchmark (You can compare all GPU's) from 6970 vs 2x 6970;

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/292?vs=298

As you see, the scale in most of the games is at least a 80%. So yep, I was right.

Same here... Has anyone tried BF3 with 11.9 WHQL yet? As those got released 'after' the 11.10 preview, maybe brought some updates/benefits over 11.10.
Any experiences?
Thanks

That wouldn't help, as the differences is more than just a few missing files. Many of the other files are different (even if they have the same build number)

I tested 11.9 whlq + cap 4 and 11.10 without caps.

I dont see any diference, in ultra settings, im getting over 75 frames outdoors with the artifacts, black lines and texture flickering with both driver.

But with games like, dead island, f1 2011, shogun 2, dirt 3 etc im getting better framerates with 11.9 whlq, so i stick with it for the moment.

As I've said here, both 11.9 and 11.10 had basically the same bugs and performance on BF3 beta. They're both good enough for a beta experience.
