AMD releases preview Catalyst drivers for Windows 10 with CrossFire FreeSync

Gamers rocking Microsoft Windows 10 will be able to deploy AMD's latest version of the company's Catalyst Control Center. Version 15.7 has been released as a preview build, bringing with it support for Microsoft DirectX 12 and AMD's own FreeSync. The company boasts some exciting features for AMD owners in this latest suite rollout.

Support for WDDM 2.0 has been added for Windows 10, which aims to reduce driver workload on graphics hardware. This enables you to alter between display modes without delay and screen flicker. There are also a bunch of performance boosters, including Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) to fine-tune your setup for a more stable performance setting to achieve lower system temperatures, as well as decreased fan speeds for a more silent operation.

Another neat feature is Virtual Super Resolution, which renders at a higher resolution and down-scales, providing super sample anti-aliasing. Finally, FreeSync now works in Crossfire mode, but you'll need compatible graphics components and monitor to take full advantage of an enhanced lag-free experience.

AMD Radeon R7 260 and above, desktop A-Series 7400K and above are supported. See AMD's official announcement for more details and the download link.
