When AMD promised to move off of a monthly release schedule for their Catalyst Control Center and drivers, we didn't think that would mean we would see multiple releases from them every month. If you count the beta versions then that is exactly what is happening, today the release of the 12.11 Beta 7 driver is available on their beta driver page. We have listed the improvements offered by previous versions of the 12.11 Beta driver and they are quite impressive, this particular version adds one more to the list of improvements. Players of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 should be grabbing this driver as the improvement is specific to the CrossFire compatibility of that game. AMD does not specify a percentage increase but they do state you will see much better performance on CrossFire systems, especially if you are playing at 2560 x 1600 and above ... which you really should be if you are running a CrossFire system. It has all the previous benefits as well, so if you've been holding off on upgrading your graphics driver, this might be a good excuse to do so.
