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.

I learned that lesson the hard way when I bought an LG 27 inch monitor. I thought the picture was sharp, bright and vibrant but for the first three weeks of owning it, I thought something was odd.

This all changed when I opened up a .jpeg in on it. I observed something striking. When I zoomed in an image all the way to where each pixel was a large box on my screen... the monitor was dithering the box!!!!!! Separate pixels shouldn't be dithered, but it was.

I then took the monitor back to the store promptly, just in time for Fry's to honor their return policy before it was too late. This is why I make most of my high-impact hardware purchases locally... just in case I find something silly like this with things I buy.

You can try turning off color management for your monitor. I did this on my dads 24" benq 1920x1200 monitor and dark shades became instantly better in programs that used color management.
