Catalyst 15.9 beta driver contains memory leak bug, AMD working on fix

AMD released its Catalyst 15.9 beta drivers earlier today. While beta drivers are usually smooth sailing, this was not the case with this release, which contained a memory leak bug. According to the aptly named Reddit user "MemoryLeakBug", it triggers when resizing any window, at which point RAM usage skyrockets to about 1GB per few seconds of resizing.

"AMDJoe" confirmed the issue and says a fix is in the works. In the meantime, roll back to an earlier set of drivers while you wait on a new release. That or just don't resize any windows...

AMD replacing Catalyst Control Center with Radeon Settings

AMD is soon replacing its age-old but ever-reliable Catalyst Control Center with something more modern with Radeon Settings. As well, it will be replacing its annual Omega driver releases with colour-named releases (the first of which will be named Crimson Edition), while still releasing "minor" drivers monthly.




Radeon Settings is built on a new architecture, and it shows in its slick interface. It's not just about the look, though: Senior Manager of the newly formed Radeon Technologies Group Terry Makedon says Settings was built on responsiveness, discoverability, and ease of use. Features include automatic game detection, notifications of news and driver releases, quick driver downloading, per-game tweaking (this includes Overdrive support), Frame Rate Target Control, built-in profiles, per-display settings for FreeSync and Virtual Super Resolution, simpler and quicker Eyefinity configuration, system information, and more. Sadly, it does not offer sorely needed video recording functionality -- you'll still have to use the unpleasant Raptr app for that (or an external program). Hopefully, AMD adds it in a future version. Side note: start-up performance will be faster, especially if you're on desktop. Radeon Settings will launch late November.

And it's out and currently being downloaded to install here to see what it is like.

You can now download the new AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers.

The new driver itself is called "AMD Radeon Software" and has been build from ground up in QT. It's fast in startup, has had a massive GUI change and introduces some new features including stuff from shader caching to DX9 frame pacing enhancements. AMD is committed to release up-to 6 major WHQL driver released per year with interim Beta and Hotfix releases as well.

The AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition contains the following:

AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition Display Driver version 15.30.1025
AMD - We have been delivering graphics drivers for the past 20+ years, and during this time the graphics driver evolved way beyond the graphics device driver. It’s more than just a driver. It’s a whole range of software, and we know how important the software experience is to gamers, game developers, professionals, and others who use our products every day.

Now we have user interfaces, libraries, tools, applications, packaged as what we call drivers. This great set of software has evolved into a mini graphics Operating System. With the formation of Radeon Technologies Group, we have decided to call this mini graphics Operating System “Radeon Software”.

This means we will be retiring AMD Catalyst. This marks the end of an era, and the beginning of a new age of immersive computing where we will be surrounded by billions of brilliant pixels that enhance our daily lives in ways we have yet to fully comprehend. The new era is dawning as November 24th marks the release of Radeon Software Crimson Edition.

Radeon Settings:
Radeon Settings is the new, streamlined user interface, engineered to bring out the best of AMD graphics hardware. User-friendly and feature-rich, Radeon Settings is lightning fast and starts upto 10x times faster1 than the previous AMD Catalyst™ Control Center. Radeon Settings provides a brand new game manager, improved AMD Overdrive options per game and new video, display and Eyefinity tabs.

New Install UI:
The driver installer now provides a brand new, streamlined user experience with a reduced number of clicks required, providing better usability and an easy to install user experience.

Asynchronous Shaders:
A feature that has been extensively used by game console developers is now available to PC Gamers. Asychronous Shaders break complex serial workloads into smaller parallel tasks, thereby allowing idle GPU resources to be used more efficiently and parallel workloads allow taskes to be completed much faster.

Shader Cache:
The shader cache feature allows complex shaders to be cached, thereby resulting in reduced game load times, lower CPU usage and reduced stuttering and latency during gameplay2.

Custom Resolution Support:
This feature provides users more control over display capabilities allowing the user to create custom display profiles to attempt to drive their display with chosen resolution, timings, refresh rates and pixel clocks.

Frame Pacing Enhancements:
Frame pacing support is now extended to DirectX® 9 titles.

Frame Rate Target Control Enhancements:
FRTC enhancements include: power saving capabilty, support for DirectX® 9 titles and an extended range for target control (30 - 200 FPS).

Updated Video Feature support for 'Carrizo' products:

FluidMotion for smoothing playback of 24/30 FPS video using Cyberlink PowerDVD 15 for Blu‐Ray playback
Improved edge enhancement for sharper images
Improved de‐interlacing for interlaced content
Power Optimization:
Improved power optimizations for video, gaming and FRTC enabled gaming environments (AMD Radeon™ R7 360, AMD Radeon™ R9 380, AMD Radeon™ R9 390 series and AMD Radeon™ Fury series).

DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 support:
Provides full support for DisplayPort to HDMI® 2.0 connections via certified dongles.

Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs on October 26, 2015 using a HP Pavilion DM1 with AMD E-350 with AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics, 3GB (1GB+2GB) DDR3, Windows 10 64bit. With AMD Catalyst 15.8, the system took 8 seconds on average to load the control panel (AMD Catalyst Control Center). With Radeon Software Crimson Edition, the system took 0.6 seconds on average to load the control panel (Radeon Settings).
AMD Internal Lab testing as of Nov 2, 2015 with an Intel Core i7 5960X with 2x8GB DDR4-2666 MHz memory, Gigabyte X99-UD4, AMD Radeon™ R9 380, Windows 10 64bit. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Star Wars Battlefront took an average of 16.9 seconds to load the EndorSurvival level with AMD Catalyst 15.7.1 Driver and 11.2 seconds with Radeon Software Crimson Edition

It's garbage sadly as it just feels like additional bloat over CCC and hardly anything works in it. The actual driver set they put with it is one of the worst I have had the displeasure of having on my machine and I uninstalled it within 24 hours. Lots of complaints concerning it killing folks GPU;s too due to a very nasty fan bug which keeps your fans stuck at 20 per cent.

They fixed that issue in a hotfix last week Prey. There's a slight improvement in performance but 1-2% isn't much I know :lol:

You won't be able to get driver updates now though unless using this I recall either. Fallowing Nvidia in their own Geforce Experience isn't it?

I've just bought a cheap 290 which means jumping ship from Nvidia to AMD. So shall I just jump straight into the latest beta drivers?
Am I going to be able to play Just Cause 3?

Be sure to install the crimson related hotfix as the initial release had a major bug. As for Just Cause 3 it is completely hit and miss right now broken for many playable for others.

Right so that's fucked.
Just Cause 3 - Getting the same problem Raid did. Quit to desktop whilst trying to login.
Fallout 4 - getting a weird radar bug.
Haven't tried any other games yet as 2 out 2 being borked is bad enough....
So according to the gaming evolved thing I'm running AMD Catalyst Beta driver (15.11.1)
Is this right?
