Feature Highlights of The AMD Catalyst 13.8 Beta Driver for Windows:

 

Support for AMD CrossFire™ Frame Pacing

Frame Pacing ensures that frames rendered across multiple GPUs in a CrossFire configuration will be displayed at an even and regular pace.

Enabled through the AMD Catalyst Control Center; Globally or on a per application basis.

Frame Pacing is enabled by default.

Supported for DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 applications, and resolutions up to and including 2560x1600 (single display).

OpenGL 4.3 support – full support for the OpenGL 4.3 feature set

Performance improvements found in AMD Catalyst 13.8 Beta for Windows:

Metro: Last Light – improves performance up to 7% on the AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series

OpenGL support for User Profiles and Catalyst Application Profiles:

Users can now create per application 3D setting profiles for OpenGL applications.

OpenGL applications are now supported through Catalyst Application Profile updates (for single GPU and AMD CrossFire configurations).

AMD Enduro Technology enhancement - Catalyst Control Center will now show which applications are active on the Performance GPU, and the Power-Saving GPU

Resolved issues:

Resolved crash when enabling AMD CrossFireX™ on some AMD 970 platforms

Improved stability for AMD Radeon HD 7790

Resolved intermittent mouse cursor corruption when rapidly moving the cursor across window borders

Newer 13.8 Beta surfaced today

 

http://www.guru3d.com/files_details/amd_catalyst_13_8_beta2_%2813_200_11_august_14%29_download.html

 

edit: its been confirmed by myself and many others that this version of the driver is great to use with single GPU setups, far better than the last 13.8 :)

 

Does that statement apply to DCS as well? Can I update to beta2 without losing FPS like last time?

Will test later this week.

 

I May start compiling a FRAPS FPS Benchmark Line Chart Database,

And make a Specific Mission/TRACK to run it on so the results are directly comparable.

 

So it'd be like :

DCS Benchmark Track 13.8 Beta 2

-With High Preset

-With Med Preset

-With Low Preset

 

etc etc.

I cant use 13.8 at all..

I causes a lot of different graphics issues with my sapphire 7850 2gb. I tried to run it with OC 1000/1300 and without 860/1200.

In WoT i get something like white shadows when i point at other tanks.

In dcs my frames drop a lot withing a benchmark 25 drops down to 15...

In Cliffs of Dover i get all different kind of artifacts on my screen.

Reverted back to 13.6/2 and im fine for now.

I could not record it as all i got was black screen.

 

I will report that tomorrow to AMD:)

I've just gone from the 13.8 beta 1 to beta 2 and have gone from approx 10fps in triples on my imac 6970m 1gb to 20-25fps in A10C. I have no idea yet how the 13.6 drivers are in comparison but I'm bloody over the moon that even without modding I can get near fluid framerates.

 

Its only on the East Georgia and Georgian Foothills missions in the 1st few minutes so I'm sure I'll be back to 10fps in a serious dogfight but its the 1st time I've been able to enjoy DCS so far. Also Black Shark 2 still runs at 11fps no matter what settings I use in triples which will take some investigation but for now I'm semi-airborne on A10. :)

 

If only I could get the 60-70fps I get in FSX with REX I'd never leave the house. Until they came to evict me for not paying the rent as I hadn't been to work.

One of the reasons I don't choose NVIDIA but stay with AMD. This type of commenting on your competitor's communication channels gets old fast.
