AMD just sent us word that they have released AMD Catalyst 12.11 beta11 drivers as well as AMD Catalyst 12.11 CAP2. You can download them here. This driver improves performance in Far Cry 3 as well as several issues previously unresolved in the earlier Beta drivers. The key take away is that if you’re playing Far Cry 3 – you need both AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta11 and AMD Catalyst 12.11 CAP2 installed. This is because the 12.11 CAP2 is what improves Far Cry 3 performance for single GPU configurations with AA enabled! Download both!
Please note that AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta11 includes all of the fixes found in previous versions of AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta
- Improves performance in Far Cry 3 (up to 25% with 8xMSAA, SSAO enabled @ 1600p, and up to 15% with 8xMSAA, HDAO enabled @1600p) (AMD Catalyst 12.11 CAP2 must also be installed)
