AMD Catalyst 13.10 Beta Drivers Releasedby Ryan Smith on September 9, 2013 6:45 AM EST
AMD has released another set of Catalyst beta drivers for their GPUs, this time ratcheting the version number up to 13.10.
Catalyst 13.10 is a continuation of last month’s Catalyst 13.8 beta releases, and indeed despite the version bump this appears to be from the same driver branch as the previous 13.8 drivers (branch 13.200). Which given AMD’s intention to name their beta drivers with the month they expect a driver to be released in WHQL form, would give us an updated ETA of October for these drivers as opposed to August as the earlier 13.8 naming scheme would imply.
In any case, as these drivers are from the same branch the fix list is short and sweet. Along with adding Crossfire profiles for a number of recent releases, including Total War: Rome II, Saints Row 4, and Metro: Last Light, these latest drivers also include Crossfire frame pacing improvements for a number of games. AMD lists Tomb Raider, Metro, and World of Warcraft among the titles getting frame pacing improvements. This release is consistent with AMD’s earlier promises to roll out frame pacing improvements to more games over time.
As always, you can pick up the drivers over at AMD’s support website.

Koblek - Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - linkHas anyone seen tests of these new drivers? Is this "phase 2" of AMD's fix to xfire frame-pacing? I am looking forward to getting xfire 9790s when they come out in October, but if AMD can't show that they can produce working xfire drivers, I am going back to team green...

rudlan - Saturday, September 14, 2013 - linkSorry for my first comment.. i have doubt in my first installation of this driver version. So I tried again to install this.. and it works great. I can play TR 2013 (crossfirex enabled) Tressfx on, 1080p at 31.1 fps (3D on) and 72 fps(3D off) Using dual hd 7790 1075Mhz 1GB.
Sailor23M - Wednesday, September 25, 2013 - linkI stopped updating my Catalyst drivers as the new ones do not support the video decoding functionality that was present in the 12.6xx drivers. I really enjoy using my AMD GPU as a video trans-coding engine instead of using my CPU as the time is cut to 1/3rd.
