AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta Driver Released, Brings Performance Improvements To The Witcher 3

By   /   May 29, 2015

AMD has now released a new beta driver that will improve performance for the newly released The Witcher 3 and Project Cars on PC.  AMD has also shared the changelog for the new driver, which shows all the changes and improvements it brings to the table.

First, a new Crossfire profile is here for The Witcher 3 that will increase performance by 10% on single Radeon R9 and R7 series GPUs. Meanwhile, a 17% boost is provided to multi-GPU setups for the same series of products.

The changelog is posted for you below:

Crossfire Profiles updates for:

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Performance Improvements for the following:

  • The Witcher 3 – Wild Hunt: Up to 10% performance increase on single GPU Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products
  • Project Cars – Up to 17% performance increase on Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products

Known Issues:

  • The Witcher 3 – Wild Hunt: Crossfire users may experience poor performance or random flickering. As a workaround we suggest disabling Anti-Aliasing from the game’s video – post processing settings. If the issues persist further, we suggest disabling Crossfire while we continue to work with CD Projekt Red to resolve this issue.
  • Project CARS: Corruption may be observed if Anti-Aliasing is set to DS2M. As a workaround we suggest using a different Anti-Aliasing setting.
