AMD has finally released a new driver that focuses mainly on Project CARS and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Thanks downloading now !!!
I hope this fixes the stut stut stutter on Novigrad!! Edit. Looks like it improved it by a good amount, walked around at 30fps solid for about 15 seconds, with foliage visability on Medium, before I would get drops in the low 20's and lower.
I have everything on Ultra, 2500x1600, on 290x and I get an average of 43 fps v-sync, which is amazing at this resolution.
wait till you get Win 10 and they implement DX12 in the Witcher 3
Is TW3 DX12 ready? I can't wait for DX12. I have CPU bttleneck of sorts and should really help me.....
@samchez77, From what I've heard, TW3 "might" get DX12 support. One can definitely hope.
AMD confirmed it @ChrisW
Already got it and waiting until I get home to install. This game runs beautifully on my 8970m, but a futher boost is always welcome. Apparrently the 10% boost is only for R7, R9, and crossfire cards. See how it goes. Forcing tesselation at 8x or 16x thru CCC is what you need to do to optimize hairworks.....according to the notes.
Well... It's nice to have updates, but when are they going to release a finalized driver instead of a beta?
the last finised driver was months ago.
There are never finalized drivers since there are always games that will have some issues. If you mean WHQL certified then I expect they will have one when the 300 series launches.
Gonna wait for the finalized driver.
Would not recommend waiting for that. AMD pretty much stopped getting whql certification, there hasn't been one for 8months. There isn't a certified version of their milestone "omega" v15 driver at all so far. This driver seems nothing but good so far. Crossfire witcher scaling is close to perfect, so long as you disable temporal AA (within the .ini).
Does it specifically only improve Project CARS and Witcher 3? The reason I was going to wait is because I haven't installed those games yet. But yeah the last one was back in December 2014.
I think it's only really useful for those 2 games, yes. I know AMD have been improving their Dx11 overhead quite significantly lately, but can't say I know if any of those optimisations are included. There have been quite a few driver releases covering quite a few games since the last WHQL though, so I suppose it depends what else you've installed :)
You may be waiting a long time. I think the last WHQL driver was in December 2014?
Yes! im actually excited for this.
