The AMD crew have kicked out a new Catalyst beta driver for a couple of new titles.
The Catalyst 14.11.1 driver has arrived bringing with it performance improvements for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Assassin’s Creed Unity which will be releasing very shortly. As this is a beta driver there are a few known issues to point out.
Assassin’s Creed Unity in CrossFire mode will suffer from “occasional stuttering”.
There’s a small chance of intermittent screen tearing or corruption in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on high settings 4K resolution in AMD CrossFire mode,
Quad CrossFire AMD Radeon R9 295X2 may sometimes black screen when loading a game in Advanced Warfare.
AMD Radeon R9 280X/280 may experience a crash when playing Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare and a video at the same time.
CrossFire users may experience intermittent flickering in Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare menus. As a work around if this issue is seen restarting the game may cause the issue to disappear.
It is a beta driver so hopefully a full release will arrive in the future and AMD are still working with Activision to resolve any outstanding isses. It’s still worth a look if you want to see if you can squeeze more out of the performance.
