AMD Catalyst 15.3 Beta — Erster Treiber mit Unterstützung für FreeSync

AMD hat mit einem Tag Ver­spä­tung den Cata­lyst 15.3 Beta ver­öf­fent­licht, mit dem erst­mals für End­kun­den Free­Sync unter­stützt wird. In die März-Aus­ga­be des Trei­ber­pa­ke­tes sind zudem eini­ge neue oder über­ar­bei­te­te Cross­Fire-Pro­fi­le inte­griert wor­den sowie Opti­mie­run­gen zur Ver­bes­se­rung der Sta­bi­li­tät und Kom­pa­ti­bi­li­tät mit diver­sen Anwen­dun­gen ein­ge­flos­sen. Eine voll­stän­di­ge Lis­te der vom Trei­ber unter­stütz­ten Hard­ware sowie sämt­li­cher beho­be­ner und bekann­ter Pro­ble­me kann den offi­zi­el­len Release Notes ent­nom­men wer­den. Soll­tet Ihr von Pro­ble­men betrof­fen sein, die dar­in nicht auf­ge­führt wer­den, dann könnt Ihr das offi­zi­el­le Cata­lyst Crew Feed­back Form ver­wen­den, um das Trei­ber-Team dar­auf auf­merk­sam zu machen. Eine Hil­fe­stel­lung für das For­mu­lar könnt Ihr hier fin­den.

AMD Cata­lyst 15.3 Beta — CCC-Softwareinformation

Die Trei­ber ste­hen für Win­dows 8.1 und 7 zum Down­load bereit. Win­dows 8 wur­de letzt­mals mit dem Cata­lyst 14.4 WHQL offi­zi­ell unter­stützt. Vis­ta-Nut­zer kön­nen den Trei­ber eben­falls instal­lie­ren, aller­dings hat uns AMD zu ver­ste­hen gege­ben, dass Micro­softs unge­lieb­ter Spross in der Qua­li­täts­si­che­rung und Ent­wick­lung nur noch eine unter­ge­ord­ne­te Rol­le spielt.

Ach­tung! Wie bei allen Beta‑, Release-Can­di­da­te‑, Pre­view- und Hot­fix-Trei­bern sei auch hier der Hin­weis ange­bracht, dass es sich nicht um eine voll­um­fäng­lich getes­te­te Soft­ware han­delt, in der auch schwe­re­re Feh­ler noch ent­hal­ten sein kön­nen. Der ange­bo­te­ne Beta-Trei­ber rich­tet sich in ers­ter Linie an Enthu­si­as­ten, die stets die aktu­el­len Fea­tures und Opti­mie­run­gen nut­zen wol­len. Er soll­te jedoch nicht auf Pro­duk­tiv­sys­te­men instal­liert werden!
