AMD Catalyst 14.4 WHQL ( April 17)

AMD's Catalyst 14.4 drivers have gone gold and are now available to download in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors for Windows and Linux.

If you're sitting pretty on a Windows box, the Catalyst 14.4 software suite requires Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to be installed (or a later version of Windows). In return, the new driver package adds support for AMD's dual-GPU Radeon R9 295X2 graphics cards. The driver package also addresses a handful of issues and offers a few performance bumps, such as flickering in Titanfall when running a CrossFire configuration and increasing CrossFire scaling by up to 34 percent in Anno 2070.

There are a couple of known issues AMD is working to fix. One is that you might see a blue screen of death when encoding with Power Director 11, and the other is that driver installation could result in a black screen when installing on a dual AMD Radeon R9 295X configuration under Windows 8.1 (AMD suggests rebooting if this happens).
