I recall the modded Omega drivers I always used for cards before I moved to Windows 7 and they stopped making them. Downsampling has been a mega pain in the arse for AMD due to them breaking it on new drivers when you got it finally working various convoluted means so I stopped doing that a while back by.

Now release some damn powerful cards with 50% increase over what I have to put the cherry on the top :)

EDIT: December the 9th touted as the release for these drivers over on Guru3D forums.

Know Issues:

*The Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt : To enable the best performance and experience in Crossfire, users must disable Anti-Aliasing from the games video-post processing options. Some random flickering may occur when using Crossfire. If the issue is affecting the game experience, as a work around we suggest disabling Crossfire while we continue to work with CD Projekt Red to resolve this issue
[419945]

Project CARS: Corruption may be observed if Anti-Aliasing is set to DS2M when run in Crossfire mode. As a workaround we suggest using a different Anti-Aliasing method.

NOTES

This driver is not intended for use on AMD products running in Apple Boot Camp platforms. Users of these platforms should contact their manufacturer for driver support.
When installing the AMD Catalyst™ Driver for Windows® operating system, the user must be logged on as Administrator, or have Administrator rights to complete the installation of the AMD Catalyst Driver.
The AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta Software Suite requires Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to be installed.
The AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta Software Suite requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 to be installed. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is included in all Catalyst packages.
AMD Eyefinity technology is designed to give gamers access to high display resolutions. As pixel count grows, the graphics "horsepower" required to drive the displays at a reasonable frame rate can increase dramatically. Depending on the game and system configuration, users may notice texture corruption and reduced frame rates when running games in multi-monitor Eyefinity modes.
