WCCF Tech breaks news that AMD is working on a driver fix for a memory leak issue that affects Battlefield 4 on the Windows 8.1 operating system.
As far as I know, the issue has only been confirmed in Battlefield 4. I contacted AMD for their official word and Head of Global Technical Marketing, Robert Hallock confirmed the issue as present in Battlefield 4 (Windows 8.1 only). It appears that just like in the past, AMD has actually helped DICE track down the issue, which is appreciable considering the fact the game is now over a year old. While the exact cause is not known, the issue will be resolved in the next iteration of beta driver update from AMD. Some users reported the issue as being more severe over extended gaming sessions, and while my sample size is fairly limited, I thought it was an interesting point to note.
