Nella tarda serata di ieri, AMD ha rilasciato i driver 14.11.1 tentando di porre rimedio ai problemi riscontrati sul nuovo CoD e Assassin’s Creed. Al contrario di Nvidia, i driver sono in versione BETA quindi oltre a sistemare le pecche più grandi introdurrano dei bug che possono far storcere il naso a coloro che hanno configurazioni più costose.

Andiamo a vedere compatibilità e changelog:

Riassumendo avremo dei miglioramenti delle performance in questi due nuovi videogiochi, ma per i possessori di schede 280/280X o semplicemente per chi ha un sistema in CrossFire, possono verificarsi crash o problemi più gravi rispetto alla versione WHQL dei driver. Installate quindi i driver a vostro rischio e pericolo, ma ricordate che in caso di un eventuale downgrade è sempre meglio fare un wipe completo come suggerito in questo nostro articolo.

I driver sono disponibili al seguente indirizzo, in bocca al lupo!
