AMD Released Catalyst 15.7 WHQL Driver

AMD released a new set of drivers, the Catalyst 15.7 WHQL driver suite. The new drivers add official support for the new AMD Radeon R9 300 and R9 Fury series of graphics cards, but it also comes with a lot of new features which mainly are aimed at Windows 10.
AMD describes the new release as “A Catalyst for Windows 10 and Direct X” and is said to unleash even more performance from your AMD hardware.
The new Catalyst 15.7 WHQL driver adds support for AMD FreeSync in Crossfire setups on DirectX 10 or newer. It also features virtual super-resolution and frame-rate target control in their full and official version. Every new driver also brings some new gaming profiles and this time is no different. The performance of Far Cry 4 and Tomb Raider has also been improved.
But the really interesting things are the FRTC and VSR. FRTC enables fine-tuning of your graphics card for a more stable and consistent performance in games. By limiting the maximum framerate, you lower the power consumption, thereby your electrical bill as well as heat and thereby noise. VSR in its essence renders the pictures larger than they need to be displayed and then scales them down for improved quality.
So if you got an AMD graphics card, you might want to head over to AMD and download the new drivers.
