In a busy day for video card drivers ahead of the Grand Theft Auto V launch, AMD has also released an updated driver set in preparation for release of the game.

Released in beta form, Catalyst 15.4 (display driver ver. 14.502.1014) is AMD’s GTA V launch driver and contains all of their latest optimizations and profiles for the game, including enabling Crossfire support. Along with the GTA improvements, Catalyst 15.4 also brings with it new or updated Crossfire profiles for several other games (including Battlefield Hardline and Metal Gear Solid V: GZ), and bug fixes for Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, and Far Cry 4.

Meanwhile for Windows 10 users, as with NVIDIA’s release today you’ll want to avoid these drivers if you want WDDM 2.0 support. Officially these drivers only support up to Windows 8.1 and are not WDDM 2.0 enabled.

As always, you can grab the drivers for all current desktop, mobile, and integrated AMD GPUs over at AMD’s Catalyst beta download page.

    Well lookit that! That dood in the nVidia driver news thread will be happy....I think.

    this is WHQL certified like nvidia's. this is just a beta driver with no certificate.

    this is Not***** is how i wanted to start that sentence.

    Remember Nvidia's card-frying 196.75 WHQL? WHQL certification is absolutely worthless.

    There's just no pleasing some people! You release a WHQL driver that let's them fry eggs on their graphics card and they have the nerve to fuss about it.

    So true, WHQL certification just means MS got some money, there is no link between stability and WHQL.
    In fact back when I had a nvidia card it was always so that the beta drivers were stable and the WHQL as flaky as hell - including coring the system..

    The concept was OK though, where MS would make sure the stuff was up to snuff. It's a pity that never became the reality of it. Even when the WHQL system was just introduced it never worked like that.

    is it possible to download the CCC v15.4 for windows 10?
  • Ryan Smith - Monday, April 13, 2015 - link

    It would probably work. But you won't get WDDM 2.0, you'll get what amounts to Win8.1 drivers on Win10.

    The wddm 2 drivers I found to be really slow compared to the older beta

    But when will they update the bootcamp drivers for the R9 m295x for windows 8.1 or 10? :/ Its almost like the GPU doesn't exist.
