Following on from the release earlier this week of the new Microsoft Windows 8.1 Preview to the masses, AMD has now followed up by launching a new Catalyst Driver from the Windows 8.1 Preview operating system.
The new Catalyst Windows 8.1 Preview reference driver for AMD/ATI GPUs (32 and 64-bit) is now available to download, but it provided “as is” so you are pretty much on your own if you encounter any issues.
The release notes for the Catalyst Windows 8.1 Preview reference driver for AMD/ATI GPUs explains that is brings support for WDDM 1.3, an upgraded display driver model in Windows 8.1 that provides users with several new features. If you fancy giving the new Windows 8.1 Preview a go Microsoft suggests:
“Windows 8.1 Preview ISO files (.iso) are provided as an alternative to downloading the preview through Windows Store,” Microsoft states. “If you are an advanced user and want to install the preview on another partition, another PC, or a virtual machine, we recommend you download the ISO files.”
