AMD Catalyst 13.9 WHQL Drivers Available

@ 2013/09/20
Going along with this morning’s NVIDIA drivers announcement, AMD has released their latest 13.9 WHQL drivers today. AMD’s way of doing driver releases can frankly get a bit confusing, as there are hotfixes, betas, and WHQL releases all on different version numbers. For example, while the 13.9 WHQL came out today, the 13.10 beta drivers released a couple weeks ago. Regardless, you can download the new drivers (or the beta drivers) from AMD’s site; the release notes also cover what the new drivers bring to the table.

The short summary is that these are AMD’s first WHQL WDDM 1.3 drivers, designed to support Windows 8.1. On desktop systems, these drivers are available for everything that has DX11 support – HD 5000 and later, more or less – including the Llano, Trinity, and Richland APUs as well as Kabini and Temash (Brazos is not listed as being supported). Note that the 13.9 WHQL drivers do not include the frame pacing fixes that are available in the latest 13.10 beta or the latest CrossFire optimizations.
