AMD Catalyst 11.1a Hot-Fix Update

We received an update today from the folks at AMD regarding the information given to us earlier this week on the upcoming Catalyst 11.1a hot-fix drivers. The driver development team has found and fixed an OGL Tessellation bug that invalidates the Heaven scores posted in the earlier update. That said, they say they have seen significant performance gains in TessMark after implementing the fix. AMD says the drivers are still on track for January 26th.

I would like to inform you that there’s an update to the new catalyst 11.1a Hot-Fix that I sent out on Monday evening. This update fixes an OGL Tessellation bug that our Driver team had discovered. The Heaven scores reported in my earlier email are no longer accurate due to this fix. However, in TessMark there has been some significant gains in performance.
