New AMD driver fixes Battlefield 4 crashes in Windows 8

AMD has released new graphics drivers that fix some crashes for Windows 8 users.

AMD Battlefield 4 driversMany PC gamers are seeing awful performance in Battlefield 4, to a point where the game is practically unplayable. However, some Windows 8 users might see improvements, courtesy of new AMD graphics drivers.

AMD just released Catalyst 13.11 Beta8 drivers, which fix some crashing issues in Windows 8. This is unrelated to the general crashes and freezes that happen regardless of hardware setups.

The new Catalyst drivers are available for both Windows 7 and 8 users, and in addition to the crash fixes, they all bring some performance improvements, especially if you’re running Crossfire (dual AMD graphics cards). You can download the new drivers here. The new drivers also add support for the brand new R9 290 and R9 290X graphics cards from AMD.

AMD recently entered a partnership with EA to provide Battlefield 4 with its graphics cards, a deal that could be worth $8 million to EA.

    It was a bit ‘bouncy’ earlier on but it’s running pretty great now. Just had 3 full games on Paracel Storm (OMG!), Locker and another one. Sound, frame-rate and gameplay all as they should be: fantastic.

    Running like you guys described in the ‘Battlefield 4 for PC is practically unplayable’ post, but this driver update did fix the BSOD during map change, which was a big one aswell. That’s one bug down, six hundred to go

          The game runs fine on Win8. You’re clearly not ready for it.

    Well I seem to be getting the crashes as well but form my understanding I have only been crashing when I have a under slung barrel. EX: A noob toob under the gun or shot gun. That’s my only problem.

    What a joke… Got this driver with a 7870GHz OC Edition. Every game crashed or froze for several hours, then when I finally got one that didn’t of course the netcode was messed up so I was rubberbanding across the entire map. Even vehicles that were amphibious were slamming into the water and stopped as the game thought “can this go here” then let me drive it. Kind of hard to lead a target with an LAV if they’re jumping 20 feet at a time. I know that’s not the drivers fault. But the crashes, freezes, errors, and graphical glitches are. I get 80-90fps steady. So it’s not my card. It’s obviously the driver.

    I’m running BF4 on Windows 7 ultimate 64bit, AMD R9 280x card with since a few days the latest 13.11 beta driver, and it got even worse. The game still crashes just as frequently, but also the graphics got much worse. Sometimes trees or grass just turn into walls through which I can’t see and subsequently get shot. Oh and did I mention the game still crashes every ten minutes?

    Battlefield 4 crashing is not caused solely by graphics driver issues. It’s clearly a fundamental design flaw in the game. This update made some improvements but Battlefield 4 is still unplayable and crashes frequently. Battlefield 4 crashes in the user interface as well as the 3D world. Battlefield 4 servers crash frequently kicking users out of the game even if their own client doesn’t crash. Be sure to test Battlefield 4 thoroughly within 24 hours after downloading from Origin so you can request a refund if the game is unstable on your system. I’ve tested this game myself and after hours of tweaking drivers and software was unable to complete a single Battlefield 4 map without crashing
