Well another Driver Update from AMD. AMD Catalyst 13.10 Beta Drivers, but dont get your hopes up high just yet because this update will mostly address Multi-GPU and Crossfire Problems.

AMD Catalyst 13.10 Beta Drivers Update Detailed

The Catalyst 13.10 Beta Drivers wont appease a lot of people. Mostly because they don’t really offer much frame rate improvement and focus mostly on bug fixing. Catalyst 13.10 Beta Drivers do however fix the notorious frame-pacing issues for certain games, namely, Tomb Raider, Metro Last Light, Sniper Elite, World of Warcraft, Max Payne 3, Hitman Absolution.

It is quite obvious that AMD has tried to address the Crossfire scaling problems in Radeon builds. Multi Gpu Tech isn’t perfect on Nvidias side either but AMD always had problems with Drivers. From lack of Native 3D support to Frame Pacing, we are glad to see that AMD is finally filling all the plugs.
