And here are the release notes of AMD’s Catalyst 15.5 Beta driver.
Crossfire Profiles updates for:
• The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Performance Improvements for the following:
• The Witcher 3 – Wild Hunt: Up to 10% performance increase on single GPU Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products
• Project Cars – Up to 17% performance increase on Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products
• The Witcher 3 – Wild Hunt: Crossfire users may experience poor performance or random flickering. As a workaround we suggest disabling Anti-Aliasing from the game’s video – post processing settings. If the issues persist further, we suggest disabling Crossfire while we continue to work with CD Projekt Red to resolve this issue.
• Project CARS: Corruption may be observed if Anti-Aliasing is set to DS2M. As a workaround we suggest using a different Anti-Aliasing setting.
