New AMD driver fixes Battlefield 4 crashes in Windows 8
Many 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.
