AMD may have announced that the refreshed Radeon Crimson drivers and control panel software will be released by the end of this year, but Catalyst isn't dead just yet. The Catalyst 15.11.1 beta is hot off the presses with support for some recently-released and upcoming games.
Performance and quality optimizations for four November releases headline this version's release notes. Star Wars Battlefront, Fallout 4, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 all get special treatment in this release. Players will need a Radeon 5000 series or later graphics card or one of the company's APUs running on Windows 7, 8.1, or 10 to install these drivers.
As with most beta releases, AMD warns of a handful of potential problems in 15.11.1. Both Assassin's Creed Syndicate and Star Wars Battlefront will fail to launch in full-screen mode on some notebook systems with an Intel CPU and AMD graphics hardware. CoD: Black Ops III may flicker in systems running in CrossFire mode. AMD encourages players that run into trouble to fill out the Issue Reporting Form to provide feedback.
