AMD Releases Catalyst Graphics Driver 15.10 Beta with DirectX 12 Performance Optimizations
AMD has released its new 15.10 Beta Catalyst Graphics driver. The new release brings various DirectX 12 quality and performance improvements for Ashes of the Singularity, as well as removes the bug that caused MPEG2 video playback to fail.
Further, the 15.10 Beta version fixes a TDR error or crash encountered when running the Unreal Engine 4 DirectX benchmark or toggling between minimized and maximized mode while watching 4K video content on YouTube.
The release would also improve performance of Star Wars: Battlefront, as the game could now use high-end graphics when played on mobile devices with switchable graphics. When in DirectX 12 mode, you would no longer experience any “Driver has stopped responding” error for Ashes of the Singularity.
Other resolved issues include the intermittent playback issues with Cyberlink PowerDVD when connecting to a 3D display with an HDMI cable and the possible driver installation halt on some configurations.
As per the Release Notes, there are still a few known issues, which will hopefully be resolved in the furture updates. These include occasional GTA V crashes on Radeon R9 390X GPUs, Ashes of the Singularity crash on some AMD 300 series GPUs, and more.
As for compatibility, Catalyst 15.10 beta supports both desktop and notebook configurations that are powered by one of Microsoft’s Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 operating systems (either bit architecture).
