AMD Catalyst 13.11 Beta9.5 Now Available, Brings More Fixes

AMD has just made available a new build of its still-in-beta Catalyst 13.11 graphics driver. Dubbed Beta9.5, this latest release fixes the graphics corruption seen in Starcraft, the intermittent flickering seen on some Radeon R9 270x cards, and makes sure that the Overdrive feature doesn't disappear from the Catalyst Control Center (bug which was experienced by owners of Radeon R9 290 Series cards). Moreover, the driver improves frame pacing results in AMD Quad CrossFire configurations for Hitman: Absolution, and Total War: Rome 2.

The Catalyst 13.11 Beta9.5 is available for Windows 8.1/8/7 and features support for the Radeon R9, R7, HD 7000, HD 6000 and HD 5000 Series cards.

Wow. This sounds like one of those countdowns people do to pretend like there's some imminent threat. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 9.5, 9.75, 9.9, 9.95.

didnt ghosts get a huge update that was to fix a lot of the problems?

you're dipping below 30fps in rivals to need CF? (it's capped to 30 max)

Ghost's update didn't fix any of the crashes I have, and NFS I can play it on any fps. You just need to put 2 parameter lines for the game .exe. ;) Thing is the game without Crossfire support flaps between 40 and 60 fps... Not so big deal, but still.

"Resolves intermittent flickering seen on some AMD Radeon R9 270x graphics cards"

I wonder if this also fixes the flickering on 7950/7970/280x cards,

I've had some since using the beta's

As everyone knows, there was "Full HD". I figured that was the last resolution possible. How can you get fuller than full?

Yes it goes to 11, and even 12 probably! :eek:

I dont think its a waste of time, and Who cares! as long as you don't use it and I'm sure you don't hmm?
I just disable it and un-install it , no big deal :rolleyes:

I know I said I wasn't going to test anymore beta drivers but I have!!! The ATI Driver bug.. It got me!

Compared to the Catalyst 13.10 b2 this driver SUCKS and AMD... fix the dam ULPS when in a browser Pleeeeeeeeeease!!

the issues in my last rant have huge improvements imo... but AMD... fix the dam ULPS when in a browser Pleeeeeeeeeease!!
I'm starting to think that you're going to have to deal with that ulps thing the same way a person deals with a peanut allergy: learn to live with it, it's a part of you ;)

I don't know why it's been so difficult for AMD to fix it; it's been there for quite a while now. :(

I still haven't tried these but I need to move on from the previous beta and get back my Overdrive. :laugh:

I installed it to hopefully get rid of an annoying hardware acceleration corruption issue on my 5870, and it works great except when the monitor is turned off it never comes back from black screen on HDMI. So I have to reboot to get my display back.

Steevo, time for a new card. The AMD support for 58xx series is a bad joke at best. Specially on Crossfire setups.

I know I am done with the red team anyways. Even with that frame pacing, still in the games that I am lucky to work in CFX the stutter is beyond ridiculous, or constant crashes like the ones in COD: Ghosts, BF4, AC4, etc...

Compared to the Catalyst 13.10 b2 this driver works very well, it has similar effects, and has the stability of the older drivers. All the issues in my last rant have huge improvements imo... but AMD... fix the dam ULPS when in a browser Pleeeeeeeeeease!!
Based off the vague reply, Im sure you have never experienced this issue.

The driver conflict causes MSI afterbuner to malfunction (wont detect 2nd gpu temp,.. in-game wont display FPS, and even forces 1 gpu into 100% usage at all times....)
Uninstalling it doesnt work because after each restart, the driver comes back,... even if "auto update" and driver are completely removed from the system, .... and yes, this is on both win7 as well as win8....

So to me, yes,.... it still is a big deal ;)
