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.

Man, I remember way back when we played Kings Quest 1 @ 160x200 and we liked it! I even had 16-color graphics support for it on my Tandy.

(tidbit of the day: It used 160x200 at the time not because displays would only go up that high, but instead to allow for CGA users to exploit the practice of "color artifacting" which, when coupled with a composite monitor, would trick the screen into outputting not the CGA standard of 4 colors, but instead, 16 colors. Hence, Kings Quest 1 ran looked like a 16-color game on a crusty 4-color video adapter).
