    NIIIICE!

    I so hope that it solves the issues with the CPU spiking with BF4 + Mantle.
    Because its not in the known issues, but also not in the resolved section.

    I will write back after testing this!

    @AMDMatt Great post.
    I only wish people could see what I see when testings games.

    AMD IMO is better than Nvidia especially when it comes to Crossfire vs SLI.

    Just going by my testing in the last little while on
    Nvidia SLI
    780TISLI/970SLi/980SLI

    AMD Crossfire
    R9 290 Crossfire
    R9 290X Crossfire

    Umm...are the test puppies for this beta on guru3d? usually the betas are also able to be downloaded from AMD directly as well.

    /edit first question answered...the guru3d link takes you to AMD download page.

    Just asking.

    Also is this the press one as the download link page states? "Download AMDCatalyst 15.3 Beta 1 - this is the driver distributed to press for usage with FreeSync."

    Patch notes seem pathetically short for a 4 month wait.
