DiRT 4 Incoming Announcement? AMD Adds Crossfire Profile for Codemasters’ Racing Game

AMD may have spoiled Codemasters’ surprise, as the red team has already added a Crossfire profile for DiRT 4 in its latest graphics driver. Yeap, the latest part in the DiRT series will most probably be titled “DiRT 4” and from the looks of it AMD has been trying to optimize the title for its graphics cards.

Apart from the fact that AMD has already included a DiRT 4 Crossfire profile in its AMD Catalyst 15.4, the red team has also noted that these drivers are not yet optimized for Codemasters’ racing game.

As noted, PC gamers may experience poor performance in some configurations with these drivers (perhaps an issue meant to be read by those participating in the game’s closed beta phase).

For what is worth, Codemasters teased DiRT 4 back in April, though the team has not officially announced anything yet about it.

Stay tuned for more.

Until we get more details about it, here are the release notes of AMD Catalyst 15.4 (prior to the changes made by AMD in its official website).
