Battlefield 4 Crashing Fixed with Catalyst 13.11 Beta8 Driver

A number of users have been complaining about crashes with Battlefield 4, particularly on systems with AMD graphics cards and Windows 8. AMD had promised that it would fix the crashing, and as said, it has delivered.

The new Catalyst 13.11 Beta8 driver should have fixed the crashes that users are experiencing. As with most drivers, it contains all the extra goodies of the previous driver release.

The driver has support for Windows 7 and above machines, paired with HD 5000 series and above graphics cards, of course including the new R9-290X graphics card. It is available for download here.

    Who bothers buying BF4? Have you people even tried the beat? Just terrible frame rates even on a 3770K + 670 SLI setup. Yeah yeah, I know it's beta but still, it was virtually unplayable, and I'm sorry DICE you just lost a potential customer.. =(

    No, it didn't fix it. I have the R9 290X and win 7 and it still crashes. Not every single match granted.

    I love how you complain about the frames and not about the fact that its BF3 with some modifications and new maps. Dice is following the lead of the COD guys. They went from being able to man carriers and battleships to making them pretty scripted BS easter eggs of gaming years past.

    Yes, I've played it, now stop spouting nonsense. I get 90+ FPS on ultra with no MSAA with a similar build. Besides some crashing, the game is very solid.

    comments like yours are the exact reason some companies do closed / private beta tests... u judge a beta as a finished product even thou there are 100s of disclaimers about what beta means

    Working okay, beta and release, on my Core i5 750 + GTX 460 system. Medium/high details, 1080p, usually 40-60 FPS but with some dips occasionally. I have some trouble believing you had "terrible" frame rates unless something is dreadfully wrong with your machine.

    The single player works fine. Its the MP that crashes all the time with AMD and nvidia players alike, It's a bug in the game!!!
