Hot on the heels of Nvidia's GeForce 355.82 release, AMD has taken the wraps off its Catalyst 15.8 beta drivers. The company has added support for version 0.7 of the Oculus SDK in this release. Furthermore, Batman: Arkham Knight gets some "performance and stability updates," while Ashes of the Singularity gets some love in the form of "performance optimizations for DirectX 12."
Since this is a beta release, there are some minor issues to be aware of. AMD warns that the driver installation process may halt "on some systems with an AMD 990FX chipset and AMD CrossFire enabled." As a workaround, the company suggests uninstalling the existing graphics driver on those systems before installing the 15.8 beta. Owners of BenQ 144Hz FreeSync displays might also see their display signal drop when uninstalling this driver. Be sure to read the full change log before taking the plunge.
