    Highlights of AMD Catalyst™ 14.11.1 Windows® Beta Driver

    Performance Improvements


    • Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare performance optimizations
    • Assassin's Creed® Unity performance optimizations
    Known Issues

    • [408930]: Occasional stuttering in Assassin's Creed® Unity in CrossFire mode under specific game settings
    • [409235]: Small chance of intermittent screen tearing or corruption in Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare on high settings 4K resolution in AMD CrossFire™ mode
    • [408706]: Quad CrossFire AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 may sometimes black screen when loading a game in Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare
    • [409199]: AMD Radeon™ R9 280X/280 may experience a crash when playing Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare and a video at the same time. If you experience this issue a work around is turning off the video while playing the game.

    Lets be honest here matt, how much of this negative crossfire scaling problem is actually on you guys? I can't expect Activision to make a proper pc port.

    If that is only CoD/AC stuff I can skip it this time. Neither series holds any credit with me anymore.

    Any word on raptr GVR starting to work with poor reference HD7970?
    Message "Waiting for benchmark result..." is kind of dumb.

    What about some manual override via config to enable it on users "risk" ?

    He's updating when i'm telling him usually. I prefer telling him when there is a version that is worth it.
    Probably 13.5.1.2 is tho.

    The release notes mention nothing of either; so you probably shouldn't expect them.

    I was thinking the exact same thing.

    They were still using 14.9 (meaning september driver) they basically skipped over 14.10 (october) and just went straight to 14.11 (november).

    This driver does improve performance in COD:AW but not much at all, the issues lie with the game itself. No way should a game like COD:AW slow down into the 40fps range in multiplayer. The maps are tiny, the player count is tiny, and the graphics whilst a step up should run perfectly well even on mid range hardware. The amount of lag, stutter, frame drops, poor hit detection, and downright sheer lazy coding makes the game unplayable on majority of the maps. BF4 Ultra settings 1080p 64 player servers runs 60fps on my rig and looks way better graphically than COD:AW

    - Driver does not contain chipset drivers (AHCI, USB Filter, IOMMU, etc); 14.9.2 does
    - PCI Bus driver is 12/12/2013, 13.251.3.0000
    - Audio Bus driver is 08/15/2013, 9.002.0.0000
    - HDMI driver is 02/21/2014, 9.0.0.9905

    omg.
    see once again the drivers having to help the developers get the game to run correct when it should be the developers responsibility and use a known working profile for that game engine for these graphics cards.
    The same happens with nvidea and we all take it when there is no need for this to happen.
    They need to stop bringing out games that have these problems and we need to stop buying them.It would soon stop happening if that happened.

    Cod AW still has negative crossfire scaling in multiplayer with 1920x1080 resolution.

    Wondering the same thing? Hard to believe they're going to treat the 6000 series as legacy...
    http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/amd-catalyst-14-11-1-beta-download.html

    If it's really true, I wonder if there's a way to edit the driver to work with HD6000 series.....(some kind of legacy driver mod installation?)
