AMD has today launched the Catalyst 15.11.1 beta drivers for their Radeon graphics cards, bringing performance optimizations for Star Wars Battlefront ahead of the game's launch tomorrow.
The release notes for the Catalyst 15.11.1 beta drivers don't specifically say what performance optimizations you'll get for Star Wars Battlefront, but considering AMD's close work with EA in the past, it looks like this game will support features such as CrossFire at launch.
The Catalyst 15.11.1 drivers also bring performance optimizations for Call of Duty: Black Ops III; Assassin's Creed Syndicate, which is set to launch on PC on November 19th; and Fallout 4. Unfortunately, these new drivers still don't support CrossFire in Fallout 4, as the game engine itself needs work before AMD (and Nvidia) can release multi-GPU-optimized drivers.
There are a couple of known issues in these drivers that gamers should be aware of. Both Star Wars Battlefront and Assassin's Creed Syndicate cannot be launched in full screen mode on some laptops with an Intel CPU and AMD GPU, while Black Ops III may flicker on occasion while CrossFire is enabled.
As usual, you can download the Catalyst 15.11.1 beta drivers from our driver download section, or let the Catalyst Control Center perform a manual update.
