    As you may have seen in our coverage of the AMD Never Settle holiday promotion and driver performance testing, the new AMD Catalyst 12.11beta is here - including fixes for long suffering AMD Mobility 7970M Enduro users, too.

    12.10 Has some nice surprises as well:
    AMD Catalyst Mobility now includes support for AMD Enduro™ Technology. AMD Enduro Technology is currently supported on all notebook Intel IvyBridge platforms and AMD Comal platforms that support the AMD Radeon HD 7900M, 7800M, 7700M.
    New Enduro™ Technology features found in Catalyst 12.10:
    • Re-designed Catalyst Control Center user interface • View all profiled applications
    • View recently run applications
    • Profile applications based on power source
    • Expert mode control and customization • Performance centric AC
    • Battery centric DC

    Some fixes, too:
    • Tri and Quad CrossFire + Eyefinity configurations – Users will no longer see lower than expected performance in certain DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 applications
    • FireFox – corruption is no longer observed on CrossFire configurations
    • Enabling Overdrive settings no longer increases clocks in all power states
    • AMD Video Converter support is available in AMD Catalyst 12.9 Beta Windows 7 and Windows Vista packages
    • Resolves the system delay observed when opening the Windows Audio system tray on Multi-GPU configurations to configure HDMI Audio settings

    The new Catalyst Application Profile 12.10 #1 can be used with either 12.10 official or 12.11 beta drivers.

    Driver has been updated from beta3 to beta4, fixes for crossfire users running medal of honor warfighter.
