AMD Catalyst 14.7 RC3 f체r Windows

AMD hat mit dem Cata짯lyst 14.7 einen wei짯te짯ren Release Can짯di짯da짯te ver짯철f짯fent짯licht, bei dem das Haupt짯au짯gen짯merk auf der Besei짯ti짯gung eini짯ger Pro짯ble짯me mit 4K-Bild짯schir짯men lag. Mit dem neu짯en Trei짯ber wol짯len die Trei짯ber짯ent짯wick짯ler ins짯be짯son짯de짯re Ver짯bin짯dungs짯pro짯ble짯me der Rade짯on-Gra짯fik짯kar짯ten aus den Seri짯en R9 290, R9 270 und HD 7800 redu짯ziert haben. Zugleich wird dar짯auf hin짯ge짯wie짯sen, dass das Auf짯tre짯ten von Pro짯ble짯men ins짯be짯son짯de짯re durch die Ver짯wen짯dung von zer짯ti짯fi짯zier짯ten DisplayPort1.2멖BR2-Kabeln mini짯miert wer짯den kann, die nicht l채n짯ger als 2 m sind. Dar짯체ber hin짯aus fin짯det sich im aktu짯el짯len RC-Trei짯ber ein Cross짯Fi짯re-Pro짯fil f체r Wild짯star. In Lich짯dom soll die Per짯for짯mance sowohl f체r Sys짯te짯me mit nur einer GPU als auch f체r Cross짯fi짯re-Sys짯te짯me ver짯bes짯sert wor짯den sein. Zu guter Letzt ver짯spre짯chen die Release Notes noch ein fl체s짯si짯ge짯res Spiel짯ge짯f체hl in Watch Dogs, was sowohl f체r Sin짯gle- als auch Mul짯ti-GPU-Sys짯te짯me gel짯ten soll.

In die August-Aus짯ga짯be des Trei짯ber짯pa짯ke짯tes sind zudem erneut Opti짯mie짯run짯gen zur Ver짯bes짯se짯rung der Sta짯bi짯li짯t채t und Kom짯pa짯ti짯bi짯li짯t채t mit diver짯sen Anwen짯dun짯gen ein짯ge짯flos짯sen. Eine voll짯st채n짯di짯ge Lis짯te der vom Trei짯ber unter짯st체tz짯ten Hard짯ware sowie s채mt짯li짯cher beho짯be짯ner und bekann짯ter Pro짯ble짯me kann den offi짯zi짯el짯len Release Notes ent짯nom짯men wer짯den. Soll짯tet Ihr von Pro짯ble짯men betrof짯fen sein, die dar짯in nicht auf짯ge짯f체hrt wer짯den, dann k철nnt Ihr das offi짯zi짯el짯le Cata짯lyst Crew Feed짯back Form ver짯wen짯den, um das Trei짯ber-Team dar짯auf auf짯merk짯sam zu machen. Eine Hil짯fe짯stel짯lung f체r das For짯mu짯lar k철nnt Ihr hier fin짯den.
