You know that Catalyst 14.4 release candidate AMD posted on Monday? Well, the final, WHQL-certified version of that graphics driver is now out. I'll spare you a cut-and-paste of the release notes, because they're identical. We're in for the same CrossFire and Mantle tweaks (plus OpenGL 4.4 support) as earlier this week.
AMD has rolled out final Catalyst 14.4 drivers for Linux, too. Those obviously don't have WHQL certification, but AMD has lopped off the "release candidate" tag without, it seems, adding new features or fixes. The only new thing in the release notes is a couple of "open issues" (i.e. unfixed bugs):
- Performance on some Steam OS games is lower on 1GB graphics memory cards, compared with 2GB graphics memory cards
- Some Piglit tests cause a system hang under Ubuntu
The final Catalyst 14.4 driver for Linux can be found on this page.
