AMD Still Trying to Fix Rage Issues, Rolls Out Catalyst 12.1a Preview Driver

Paul Lilly

Is anyone still playing Rage anymore? It's a fun game overall, albeit a short excursion into a bug-ridden landscape that desperately needs to be fleshed out. It's also been eclipsed by newer titles, like Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Batman: Arkham City, and other recent titles. But hey, if you're still rocking Rage and own an AMD Radeon HD graphics card, there's a new preview driver available that's supposed to further smooth out game play.

AMD Catalyst 12.1a preview will get your system ready for an upcoming update of Rage and offers the following fixes:

  • Resolves some new texture corruption issues introduced by the latest version of the game
  • Improves performance by 5 percent
  • Smooths out game play and reduces multicore sync points
  • Fixes "mapbuffer failures" when switching maps on 32-bit systems
  • Fixes a game crash when switching maps back and forth on 32- and 64-bit systems

And that's really all there is to the new preview driver. Interested? If so, click the appropriate link below:
