Just in time to boost your frame rate in Star Wars Battlefront, AMD’s latest beta display driver arrives, hands on hips, bellowing ‘Ha-HA!’ Like Errol Flynn. Except instead of a pair of incredibly revealing tights considering the decade, AMD’s driver wears a string of unappealing numbers – say hi to Catalyst 15.11.1, everyone.

In addition to the usual generalised performance and reliability improvements that make their way into the roll call of any driver update, AMD’s latest beta targets the big PC games of the quarter and promises “performance optimizations” for the following titles:
– Star Wars Battlefront
– Fallout 4
– Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
– Call of Duty: Black Ops III
However, this is a beta driver and as such not perfectly polished. There are several known issues disclosed by AMD, listed below:
 Assassin’s Creed® Syndicate – Game cannot be launched in full screen mode on some laptop systems with an Intel processor and an AMD graphics device
 Star Wars™ : Battlefront – Game cannot be launched in full screen mode on some laptop systems with an Intel processor and an AMD graphics device.
 Call of Duty® : Black Ops III – Flickering may be observed when running the game in DirectX® 11 mode and with AMD Crossfire™ enabled
 Elite: Dangerous – poor performance may be experienced in SuperCruise mode
 A black screen may be experienced on booting Windows® 10 on some systems with switchable graphics – with AMD Radeon™ HD5000 series graphics cards, when connected to an HDMI monitor
 Far Cry 4: The game may hang on launch on some AMD Radeon™ 200 and 300 series products under Windows® 7 and Windows® 8.1
