Scaricati ieri sera e installati...tutto OK, IQ come prima (a occhio) e prestazioni identiche a prima (sempre a occhio, cavolo era tardissimo).
Risolvono problemi che non avevo, pur avendo Athlon XP e Half Life 2...

Ho caricato i 4.11 proprio l'altro giorno. Ma i control center in italiano ??? Sul sito Ati.com dice:"The CATALYST Control Center is available in English only at this time. Additional languages will be available in future updates."

Qualcuno, dopo averli installati, ha notato miglioramenti (in senso generale intendo, non ad occhio ;-P ) che possano far valere il passaggio dai 4.9 a questi nuovi driver???

"Half-Life 2 performance also improves as much as 20% over Catalyst 4.11 in certain sections of the game"

Pertanto, in certe parti del gioco, dovresti notare un miglioramento di 5-10 fps circa, ti pare poco?
Chiaro che se passi da 50 a 60 difficilmente il tuo occhio se ne accorgerà...

Il control center c'è qualcuno che lo usa?
Io ho sentito che è pesante e inutile se non si ha una X800pro o xt..
