AMD 15.9.1 Beta Driver Released




AMD Catalyst™ 15.9.1 Beta



The AMD Catalyst™ Software Suite, AMD Catalyst™ 15.9.1 Beta contains the following:

  • AMD Catalyst™ Display Driver version 15.201.1151


Highlights of AMD Catalyst™ 15.9.1 Beta Windows Driver


Performance Optimizations

  • Star Wars™: Battlefront Beta - Performance and quality optimizations
  • Fable Legends : Includes the latest DirectX 12 optimizations for the Fable Legends: Benchmark
  • Driver packages are now being consolidated into 1 package instead of being spread out over different downloads, Now Windows 7, 8.1 and Windows 10 are all under 1 of 2 installers, 32 bit or 64 bit.


Compatible Operating Systems

AMD Catalyst™ 15.9.1 Beta is designed to support the following Microsoft Windows platforms

  • Windows 7 SP1 or Higher (32 & 64-bit)
  • Windows 8.1 (32 & 64-bit)
  • Windows 10 (32 & 64-bit)


Notes

  • This driver is not intended for use on AMD products running in Apple Boot Camp platforms. Users of these platforms should contact their manufacturer for driver support.
  • When installing the AMD Catalyst™ Driver for Windows®, the user must be logged on as Administrator, or have Administrator rights to complete the installation of the AMD Catalyst Driver.
  • The AMD Catalyst™ 15.9.1 Beta Software Suite requires Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to be installed.
  • The AMD Catalyst™ 15.9.1 Beta Software Suite requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 to be installed.
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is included in all AMD Catalyst™ driver packages.
  • AMD Eyefinity technology is designed to give gamers access to high display resolutions. As pixel count grows, the graphics "horsepower" required to drive the displays at a reasonable frame rate can increase dramatically. Depending on the game and system configuration, users may notice texture corruption and reduced frame rates when running games in multi-monitor Eyefinity modes.
