A new release or leak can be found here: AMD Catalyst 8.86 (Win 7/Vista x86/x64) - Guru3D.com Forums

It's rumoured to be Catalyst 11.6 or one of it's builds with mouse lag definitely fixed. As usual this should be considered beta and used at the users own risk.
I'm currently using this driver with no ill effects.

Just thought I'd give you the heads up, them 11.6 drivers are very poor for DIRT2 & 3, other games seem fine but them two lost about 30fps (was running 45fps max !!) till reverted back to the 11.5 hotfix b3's. At first I blamed my new Driving Force GT wheel I bought today, but was performing just as badly without it plugged in using my X360 pad.

Nvidia has released the Beta 275.50 driver for Windows XP, Vista and 7. This driver is for GeForce 6 and higher desktop cards. It is identical to the 275.33 WHQL driver, except for enabling SLI on 990FX, 990X and 970 AMD chipset motherboards, and providing 3D Vision performance improvements in Duke Nukem 3D with 3 or 4-way SLI. The driver package also contains the 9.10.0514 PhysX drivers.
 


After getting a on screen message the other day I went to AMD and updated again :blink:

After trying the current 11.6 Catalyst I too experienced low frame rates with Dirt 2 and Crysis 2. I was considering rolling back but then found this leaked driver here:

http://file2.mydrivers.com/display/AMD_8.862_RC1_Win7_Vista_June8_BR120249.exe

It is a later build than the current one and seems better at running the above games. As usual this should be considered beta and use at your own risk.
