Love it or hate it, Call of Duty has just seen its latest release with Black Ops III. If you’re playing or plan to play the new game sometime soon, then you’ll want to ensure you have the latest drivers to get the most out of the games performance.
AMD has just released the new Catalyst 15.11 Beta driver, which includes all the usual quality and performance optimizations for the game. The only issue that is yet to be resolved is that users using DX11 mode, while also running in Crossfire may experience some flickering, although I expect a patch for this won’t be too far away.
