AMD To Release Beta Driver To Fix Frame Latency Issue in June or July

Published: May 2nd 2013, 14:50 GMT


Along with the Radeon HD 7990 AMD released a prototype driver to fix the frame pacing issue. This driver was not exactly meant to reach the public. Instead, it was supposed to assure the community that AMD is working hard to resolve the issue.

Reviewers are very enthusiastic about the prototype driver. They believe it did a significant change in terms of frame pacing problem, thus limiting the micro-stuttering and the number of runt frames. However, it is not yet ready fur the public appearance.

The newest report by TechReport gives us a possible roadmap of the upcoming fixes. According to the tweet from the official Radeon account, AMD will release a BETA Catalyst driver for single-GPU graphics cards in June or July. Additionally TechReport also claims that AMD might release a fix for multi-GPU cards in less than 3 months. Well, this is definitely after the GeForce 700 Series arrival.

Do you think it’s worth the wait? Will this driver give AMD enough time to prepare the response of Radeon HD 8970? Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that AMD will not decide to bump the price of their next flagship higher, just as NVIDIA is supposedly going to do.
