Major drivers update incoming

According to a new report, AMD is preparing a new major Catalyst drivers update for November, similar to Catalyst Omega drivers released last year.

AMD is allegedly working on a special edition Catalyst drivers major update that could be released next month. According to the report from, the new Catalyst drivers update will be similar to the Catalyst Omega drivers released in late 2014, which included plenty of performance improvements for games as well as major new features like 4K Virtual Super Resolution (VSR), TressFX 3.0, FreeSync update, Multi-monitor, Mantle, 5K display support and other image quality improvements.

Although there are no precise details on which features could be included with the new Catalyst drivers update, the report suggests that these could be DirectX 12 related. The same report also says that the codename for the new Catalyst drivers update might be different than Omega one used last year.

Recently, AMD has heavily focused on timely updates of Catalyst drivers, including beta drivers that usually just bring optimizations for newly released games and some minor bug fixes, but the Omega-like Catalyst release is something that AMD was quite proud of last year and the new one could bring some rather interesting new features.
