AMD has released a new graphics driver for Radeon owners. The Catalyst 14.4 Release Candidate driver is based on the 14.4 beta we used in our recent Radeon R9 295 X2 review. It supports the dual-chip Hawaii card, of course, and it also comes with a handful of CrossFire-specific fixes and enhancements. Cue bulleted list:
There are a couple of Mantle fixes for BF4, too.
Along with those improvements, the Catalyst 14.4 driver promises full OpenGL 4.4 support. The Windows installer is available right here.
AMD also offers a Linux version of the 14.4 RC driver, albeit without any claims of improved game performance. The Linux release adds OpenGL 4.4 and Ubuntu 12.04.4 support. Otherwise, it's comprised entirely of bug fixes, including one specific to Steam's Big Picture mode. This link leads to the Linux download.
