Let’s have a look at what new features and functionality has been granted to Windows 10 users by the latest updates. Because Windows 7 and 8.1 users can upgrade to Windows 10 for free within a year, these drivers are significant to migration as a potentially large portion of users will be shifting simultaneously.
Microsoft yesterday released its latest Windows 10 operating system to the general public.
AMD’s newest drivers support Windows 10 and DirectX 12 for all GCN GPUs (HD 7000 and newer). Other than this, the driver resolves a few issues with Mantle games, Crossfire, and BSODs. So this Catalyst 15.7.1 is by both nature and numerically a slight update. Because of it makes great new games possible on Windows with technology like DirectX 12 and Xbox Live, it brings Xbox experiences to Windows 10 PCs in ways that are meaningful to PC gamers. Hopefully, after future Windows updates and with Nvidia drivers being polished, we’ll be able to see better performance results. New to this driver release are eight SLI gaming profiles for games such as Batman: Arkham Knight, Metro: Last Light and Squadron 42: Star Citizen. “It allows proprietary AMD and Nvidia drivers to be installed side-by-side, and automatically sets up the correct drivers at boot depending on which card is plugged in”, reads the GitHub entry of the project.
NVIDIA said this new graphics application programming interface, or API, represents a big step forward for gaming. They fully support Windows 10 and support DX12 for compatible GPUs.
When it comes to valid GPU models, build 353.62 is similar to its previous release, namely NVIDIA Tesla Graphics Driver 348.17, as it includes support for the producer’s Tesla X-Class, M-Class, C-Class, and K-Series video chipsets.
