Hello everyone,

We’ve released the Catalyst 14.2 Beta driver today to coincide with the North American launch of Thief, the newest addition to our Gaming Evolved program. You can download the beta driver from here: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-arti...dows-beta.aspx

AMD Radeon customers will have support for the following: 4K gaming, AMD Eyefinity and AMD CrossFire technologies; and everyone will benefit from the following graphical effects:

• Silhouette-enhancing tessellation to improve character geometry
• Compute shader-accelerated depth of field for realistic focal lengths
• Complex shadowing systems to support Thief’s dependence on shadows as a core gameplay mechanic

Please refer to the driver page, the Features Highlights of the driver, for more information. We are also in the process of updating the known issues page (www.amd.com/mantleknownissues) to reflect the changes in the Mantle component of this driver. And here is the link to the Issue Reporting Form: http://www.amdsurveys.com/se.ashx?s=5A1E27D25AD12B1A

Friendly reminder: the Mantle and TrueAudio patch for Thief will be available next month.
