It’s certainly taken its merry old time but AMD has released its latest drivers, the Catalyst 15.5 beta drivers. These long-awaited drivers are targeted at two recently released games which have suffered from poor performance on AMD hardware - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Project CARS.
The changelogs for the drivers indicate AMD users can expect roughly 10% performance increases on single-GPU Radeon R9 and R7 setups in The Witcher 3, and a 17% boost for users with multi-GPU Radeon R9 or R7 series in Project CARS.
The driver update also includes CrossFire profiles for The Witcher 3. Unfortunately one of the known issues is poor performance in The Witcher 3 for CrossFire users, as well as random flickering. AMD suggest disabling anti-aliasing, and if this fails then disable CrossFire. Not the best fix for power users trying to make the most of their multi-GPU setups.
If you’ve got yourself an AMD Radeon graphics card or mobile or integrated AMD GPUs, then you’d well to head on over to the AMD Catalyst 15.5 beta driver download page and grab this.
If you've given this driver a go, let us know below if you've noticed any improvement in performance in either of these titles!
