The latest release candidate for AMD’s catalyst driver has been released, bringing the graphics driver software up to version 14.4. With the new update we can expect improved support for the latest card in the AMD gang, the Radeon R9 295X2, full Open GL 4.4 support and a few tweaks and fixes to Crossfire, Mantle and a various gaming titles.
With the Radeon R9 295X2 now available, we expect AMD will be making a lot of tweaks and improvements towards that cards improvements over the coming weeks and months given that its the new flagship card and first drivers hardly ever do a new GPU justice. Of course the flagship range is one thing, but 14.4 RC drivers offer support all the way back to the HD 5000 range.
Crysis 3, Far Cry 3, Annon 2080, Titanfall and Metro: Last Light all get improved Crossfire support, and those who like to tap into the multiscreen goodness of Eyefinity and 4K will be happy to hear of fixes for 3 x 1 mode on 4K panels, with other general improvements to clean up stuttering in some applications with mid-resolutions and V-Sync via Eyefinity.
Battlefield 4 has been giving a few tweaks in Mantle, fixing performance slowdown when task switching and fuzzy images when playing in rotated SLS resolution on A10 Kaveri systems.
AMD Catalyst 14.4 is available right here.
