AMD Catalyst 14.4 - 64 Bit Driver Problem

Hello Boys and Girls :D

Not sure It's the best place to post this, but It's my best bet

I'm having an issue playing Resident Evil 6 with AMD Catalyst 14.4 drivers for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 x64

The Issue as best as I can describe it is that the game occasionally freezes during gameplay for a few seconds, then returns to normal after a quick black screen as if it's changing resolution, and sometimes it freezes completely with a continuous, looping audio bug and I can only escape that by hitting the reset button.

I had these issues with Resident Evil 6 and Darksiders II when I had Windows 7 32 Bit with AMD Catalyst 13.9, then I updated the drivers to 14.4 and these issues were gone forever. Then recently I removed Windows 7 32 Bit and installed a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 64 Bit, I got the 64 Bit version of the AMD 14.4 drivers from AMD website and gave Resident Evil 6 a try, and the issues are back again...!

I thought about installing the 32 bit version of the 14.4 drivers but a quick Google search rendered the idea impossible. So any solutions or suggestions would be welcome.

Note: I have all the "redists" needed to play modern games, like the latest DX9 and all the Visual C++ packages from 2005 to 2013, but I would be happy to be pointed to anything I might have missed.

System Specs:

Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.6 GHz E5300
4GB DDR3 RAM
XFX HD6670 1GB RAM DDR3
Samsung SyncMaster S13B300 (18.5 inch) 1366x768, 60Hz

Peace

Have you tried using the 14.7 RC drivers? Might want to give those a shot and see if it helps.
