AMD Catalyst 13.9 WHQL Drivers Download and Details

AMD Catalyst 13.9 WHQL DriversA Pretty straightforward update from AMD. Microsoft Windows 8.1 has not yet been released but AMD has rolled out WHQL certified drivers with Windows 8.1 support. The patch also includes a couple of other fixes such as Eyefinity and Crossfire problems. Some frame pacing issues have also been addressed by AMD in this WHQL Certified Driver Release. Needless to say, since this is a WHQL release we urge everyone with AMD products to apply this update asap. Especially people who are currently playing Farcry 3 or have Multi-GPU and Multi-Monitor setups.
