AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta Driver Out now

 

AMD's Catalyst 15.5 Beta Driver Out now, delivering performance boosts for The Witcher 3 and Project Cars.

AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta driver Release Notes can be viewed below.

 

Highlights:

Crossfire Profiles updates for:

  • - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

 

Performance Improvements for the following:

  • - The Witcher 3 – Wild Hunt: Up to 10% performance increase on single GPU Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products
  • - Project Cars – Up to 17% performance increase on Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products

 

Known Issues:

  • The Witcher 3 – Wild Hunt: Crossfire users may experience poor performance or random flickering. As a workaround we suggest disabling Anti-Aliasing from the game’s video – post processing settings. If the issues persist further, we suggest disabling Crossfire while we continue to work with CD Projekt Red to resolve this issue.
  • Project CARS: Corruption may be observed if Anti-Aliasing is set to DS2M. As a workaround we suggest using a different Anti-Aliasing setting.

 

My Thoughts

Over the past few months AMD has really fallen behind Nvidia when it comes to game optimized drivers, being unable to fix performance issues for project Care and The Witcher 3 at launch and even missing some games entirely. 

Right now it looks like AMD's driver teams are overworked getting Free Sync to work with Crossfire Configurations, preparing for DirectX 12 and the immanent release of Fiji and the 9 300 series of GPUs. Hopefully AMD's driver team can catch up and more importantly keep up with recent releases in the near future, as right now things are not looking good when it comes to the frequency of AMD driver updates.
