Just weeks before Windows 10 is expected to be released to the public in its final form, AMD has just made available its Catalyst 15.7 WHQL driver. The latest graphics card driver brings important features to AMD users, such as full DirectX 12 support, which enables increased performance in various scenarios, as well as expanded support for Frame Rate Target Control, which provides decreased noise and heat output by GPUs by allowing users to set a target frame rate level when running an application in full screen exclusive mode. The AMD Catalyst 15.7 WHQL driver brings support for the Radeon 300 series and other Radeon products under one driver package, and also introduces FreeSync compatibility with computer configurations that include graphics cards running in Crossfire. Additionally, Virtual Super Resolution support, which allows games to be rendered at a higher resolution and then displayed at a lower resolution for improved visuals, has been expanded to include all Radeon R7 260 and above GPUs as well as desktop A-Series 7400K and above APUs.

The Catalyst 15.7 WHQL driver offers quite a bit of what Radeon owners have been requesting for some time and represents the largest driver update for AMD since the Omega driver was released late last year. The latest driver is available for immediate download from the official AMD website.

Is anyone else having troubles downloading the Windows 10 driver?

 

-Edit- 

Ended up having to download it from somewhere other than AMD.

The Virtual Super Resolution option is missing on Windows 10 on my end.
