AMD Catalyst 15.6 Beta and NVIDIA GeForce 353.30 WHQL Released – Optimised For Batman Arkham Knight


Earlier, we confirmed to our readers that Batman Arkham Knight was having issue on AMD GPUs and hence Rocksteady updated the minimum requirements for the game just before launch in a slight change to AMD GPUs with higher memory. More recently, Khalid reported that Batman Arkham Knight is also having issues on NVIDIA GPUs. Even though the game has been locked at 30fps on the PC, users have still reported massive stuttering and some cannot even run the game in their PCs. In such a situation, AMD and NVIDIA have come up with newer driver releases for the game.
