Far Cry 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition Get AMD 14.11.2 Beta Drivers

By   /   Nov 18, 2014

With just a day into the release of Far Cry 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition, AMD has released new Catalyst 14.11.2 beta drivers that promise better optimization and performance in the new titles.

From what I can recall, AMD has shown to be pretty quick on the draw this year when it comes to drivers support for new releases, but still not that fast to out gun Nvidia.

Today’s announcement just changes that perception. Nothing would please its consumer-base more than AMD shifting into high gear with this trend and release new drivers for titles around the launch date.

Note that the new beta drivers still doesn’t completely fix the Crossfire support for both games. It brings an “optimized” Crossfire profile but users are still reporting flickering and stuttering.

Ubisoft has stated that it’s working with AMD to correct the issue with Crossfire support. Here are the brief patch notes for the new Catalyst 14.11.2 beta drivers:

Dragon Age: Inquisition performance optimizations

  • Up to 5% performance increase over Catalyst™ 14.11.1 beta in single GPU scenarios with Anti-Aliasing enabled.
    Optimized AMD CrossFire™ profile

Far Cry 4 performance optimizations

  • Up to 50% performance increase over Catalyst™ 14.11.1 beta in single GPU scenarios with Anti-Aliasing enabled.

You can download 14.11.2 beta drivers over at AMD’s site.
