Battlefield 3 fixes included

AMD's monthly Catalyst video card driver updates are a little late this month, but there are a few Halloween treats in store for the faithful. The unified desktop Catalyst 11.10 drivers enable support for Eyefinity 5x1 display configurations in portrait and landscape modes. The maximum supported resolution has been increased to 16000 x 16000 pixels on the entire AMD Radeon HD 6000 series, but only on DirectX 11 applications. Additionally, bezel compensation is now possible when using sets of displays that have mismatched pixel densities.

Numerous fixes for Battlefield 3 were introduced in the Catalyst 11.10 V3 preview driver made available earlier this month. Those fixes have been incorporated into the final release, along with several fixes for OpenGL games.

CrossFire users should be sure to download the 11.9 CAP4 Catalyst Application Profiles as well. CAP4 resolves stuttering issues when running in CrossFire mode and better scaling for Battlefield 3. It also improves CrossFire performance for Deus Ex Missing Link, F1 2011,  Dead Island, and the DX9 version of Arkham City.

My eyefinity doesn't even work in BF3...


Neither did mine. That is... Until I ran the game in Windowed mode.

You see the task bar and crap... But hell. Battlefield 3 maxxed out in Eyefinity is worth it, it's like sex for the retina's even if you can see the Taskbar.

I tried the 11.10 Beta's for about a month and the full release 11.10's earlier today, same result.

Windowed mode stretched across 3 screens until further notice it seems. - I suppose you get these kinds of problems when you are running a set-up considered "non-standard" with newer games.

I hope they fix this quickly Ill hold off buying the game until its right. Thanks for confirming.

Ive got a Radeon 6870 with triple monitor config myself and playing on a single monitor just doesn't work for me any more. I cant stress enough how awesome eyefinity is its like getting your first Voodoo card and running GlQuake back in the day.

window mode huh? I think I can deal with that. I will try 11.10 tonight. I was reading that the 11.9 cap4 fixed a lot of the flickering but I haven't tried it yet.
