AMD Catalyst™ 14.11.2 Beta Driver for Windows® - Dragon Age: Inquisition and Far Cry 4!

This release enables peak driver performance optimization for AMD Radeon™ graphics users in Dragon Age: Inquisition and Far Cry 4.


Highlights of AMD Catalyst™ 14.11.2 Windows® Beta Driver Performance Improvements
