Message Text: AMD introduced a pair of new AMD Catalyst drivers that improve performance and stability for AMD Radeon graphics products. These drivers are the AMD Catalyst 13.4 WHQL and the AMD Catalyst 13.5 Beta.

This driver is intended to replace the AMD Catalyst 13.3 Beta driver AMD released in late March. It contains the very latest performance optimizations. Compared with the 13.3 Beta driver it replaces, the 13.5 Beta driver offers several improvements:

- Recommended for the AMD Radeon HD 7990 graphics processor
- Extensive optimizations for Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon
- Up to 6% improved performance in Tomb Raider
- Up to 6% improved performance in BioShock Infinite
- Up to 5% improved performance in Sid Meier?s Civilization V
- Up to 4% improved performance in Far Cry 3
- Up to 18% improved performance in Borderlands 2 with FXAA
- Resolves TressFX Hair corruption seen in Tomb Raider on the AMD Radeon HD 7790 GPU

Certified by Microsoft via the Windows Hardware Certification program, the 13.4 WHQL driver is an upgrade to AMD Catalyst 13.1 WHQL driver released in January. As a WHQL driver release, this should be the driver of choice for users that depend upon the most rigorous levels of stability certification.

The 13.1 WHQL driver release is featuring the following improvements:

- Full stack of performance optimizations for Crysis 3, bringing the many enhancements AMD developed for the beta drivers into the certified driver tree.
- Full stack of performance optimizations for BioShock Infinite.
- Full stack of performance optimizations for Tomb Raider. - Windows Hardware Certification for AMD Radeon HD 7990 and HD 7790 GPUs
- Up to 5% improved performance in Batman: Arkham City
