Rumors are going around that AMD is going to release a significant "special edition" Catalyst driver update in November. This driver will be part of the "Omega" series and just like last year's Omega release it promises to deliver a plethora of new features and perhaps performance enhancements and bug fixes. Details about the new features are still unknown.
This year’s ‘special edition’ drivers are expected to launch at the same time as last year, according to the report. Which means that we are probably looking at AMD making this a regular thing with significant improvements to the catalyst driver build, delivered yearly. Although it does beg the question whether AMD would specifically delay significant updates just to cash in on the PR resulting from a yearly event. While we do not yet have details on what exactly the update will deliver this time, we do have previous year’s iteration to form a benchmark.
