Support for OpenGL 4.1
·         New features introduced in OpenGL 4.1
o    Full compatibility with OpenGL ES 2.0 APIs for easier porting between mobile and desktop platforms
o    The ability to query and load a binary for shader program objects to save re-compilation time
o    The capability to bind programs individually to programmable stages for programming flexibility
o    64-bit floating-point component vertex shader inputs for higher geometric precision
o    Multiple viewports for a rendering surface for increased rendering flexibility

Performance highlights:
F1 2010:
·         Performance increases up to 12% on AMD Radeon™ HD 6900 and AMD Radeon™ HD 6800 Series single card configurations with anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing disabled.
·         Performance increases up to 10% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 Series single card configurations with anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing disabled.

Left 4 Dead 2:

For more information on AMD Catalyst™ 11.1 (for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Linux versions), including all of the resolved issues and performance highlights in this release, please see the AMD Catalyst™ 11.1 release notes.

Also, we've posted the AMD Catalyst 11.1a hotfix driver here.

Highlights of the AMD Catalyst 11.1a hotfix include:
·         Performance improvements for the AMD Radeon HD 6800 & HD 6900 series in a number of applications
·         Catalyst Control Center – New Tessellation controls
·         Gives users full control over the tessellation levels used in applications
·         Catalyst AI Texture Filtering updates
·         The Quality setting has now been improved to match the High Quality setting in all respects but one;  it enables an optimization that limits tri-linear anisotropic filtering to areas surrounding texture mipmap level transitions, while doing bilinear anisotropic filtering elsewhere.  This optimization offers a way to improve filtering performance without visibly affecting image quality
·         The Performance setting has also been updated to address comments about the sharpness of the default Quality setting causing shimmering in certain cases.  It now provides a smoother filtering option that eliminates most shimmering while preserving the improved detail provided by anisotropic filtering.
