The Catalyst 14.7 RC includes everything in the 14.6 RC plus a few extra goodies. There's an update to AMD CrossFire and Radeon Dual Graphics profile for Plants vs. Zombies. You can also expect up to a massive 93 percent boost in CrossFire scaling in Assassin's Creed IV at 3840x2160 with High settings.
