    Good lookin' Brink. For those that don't know, this is a major update that includes Mantle:

    • AMD's Mantle is a groundbreaking graphics API that promises to transform the world of game development to help bring better, faster games to the PC
    • Performance gain of up to 45%(versus the DirectX version) for Battlefield 4 on the R9 290 Series

    • Performance gain of up to 200% (versus the DirectX version) for Star Swarm on the R9 290 Series

      • AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta must be used in conjunction with versions of these applications that support Mantle
      • It is expected that these applications will have future updates to support additional AMD Mantle features

    I'm on it right now. Sweet.

    Some quick advice for anyone trying out 14.1 Beta:

    Almost always, uninstalling old drivers and software is not necessary but this is a rare case that it is.

    I had screen corruption, coming straight from 13.12, which started after a few hours on the new beta driver.

    I manually cleaned my system of all AMD files in Program Files, C:\Windows\System32 and the drivers, along with the registry. Then I installed the beta driver again and it is working very well, tested great. I recommend, as long as you uninstall old first, in this case.

    Tried 14.1 beta after uninstalling old drivers and using Driver Fusion to get the rest of the junk up.

    Sadly doesn't work that great for me, most games constantly flicker white and I get sporadic FPS dips. Rolled back to 13.12 and all is working again.

    I had problem booting after installing the new AMD SATA driver, I had to use system restore to boot.
    Anybody else got this problem? Can this be solved or is it better just to avoid it and wait for the next?

    new AMD SATA driver
    doesn't really tell us much. Which version of the driver? 32bit? or 64bit? What model AMD video chipset are you using?
