AMD Improves Batman: Arkham Knight Performance With Catalyst 15.6 Beta

/ 4 years ago


We’ve seen a lot of angry fans after Rocksteady Studios released Batman: Arkham Knight. The 30FPS lock really did a number on the title’s performance and the game’s overall optimization takes us way back to the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity. We all know what happened with the latter title and how Ubisoft now promises to make up for it with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

The real surprise here is that even NVIDIA owners suffered performance drops while playing the title. We’ve seen a lot of problems with AMD’s drivers, but NVIDIA? This means Rocksteady really did it this time. Nevertheless, AMD finally released the updated 15.6 catalyst beta driver, promising to make the Batman title playable for AMD users.

Also, AMD seems to be in talks with the developers to resolve all Crossfire issues, so don’t expect to get a lot out of dual-gpu configurations at this point. A more detailed view of what the driver brings can be seen below:

    Maybe if they release a DX12 patch the game will work perfect because it’s meant to be in DX12.
    Maybe it’s all because of DX11. Maybe they wanted to wait for Win10 and then release the DX12 patch.
    A lot of maybe’s I know….

      That is pretty silly. How about this maybe: maybe the company behind this port was lazy and just didn’t give a crap.

        I know that part. They released 3.5GB patch, be patient and don’t pre-order anything, it’s that simple.
