    Default Catalyst 12.11 Beta 8 Available -- with L4D2 improvements!

    I guess none of us are playing L4D2 on Linux yet, but:


    FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE AMD CATALYST 12.11 BETA8 DRIVER

    AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta8 is now available, and includes the following updates:
    (Please note that AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta8 includes all of the fixes found in previous versions of AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta)

    Improves performance up to 5% in Max Payne 3
    Includes single GPU performance updates for Far Cry 3
    Improves CrossFire scaling for Planetside 2 (Crossfire scaling is still limited to ~30% at 2560x1600)
    Resolves the Skyrim lighting issue (missing a lighting pass) for the AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series
    Resolves the hang encountered playing Dishonored on the AMD Radeon HD 6000 and AMD Radeon HD 5000 Series

    I was about to have a whine about them not labelling their beta's correctly but I see they've included "beta8" this time.
    Time to replace their beta7 from last nights install.

    Wow, there was actually a changelog? Does anybody know if the blob supports video accel on UVD? Cause this and the better framerates on 3d content are probably the only reasons I am eyeing over to it from time to time from my r600g point.
