AMD is testing Windows 10 Preview Drivers

 

Graphics drivers have became one of the most important pieces of software for the modern PC gamer, with the most recent driver constantly offering increased performance in some of the newest or most popular games and fixing any issues which their users are having. 

The Windows 10 Technical Preview is currently installed on over 1 million PCs and AMD are soon to release an official driver to fix a few initial issues/ bugs with Microsoft's latest OS. We know that a lot of gamers have been looking forward to gaming on Windows 10, so these initial drivers will be the first step towards that reality.

This new AMD Catalyst Omega driver for Windows 10 will bring many fixes, the most prominent being the "code 43" error which is a detection error for AMD graphics cards in Device Manager, which makes it very difficult to install new drivers.

 

 

Pete Levinthal, Director of Software Engineering at AMD had this to say:

 

“My team at AMD is on the front-lines of this issue and we are working closely with Microsoft to deliver a fix. We have identified the root cause and we have built a candidate driver, which is currently being tested. We will keep you posted on progress. Thank you for your patience as we get the fix tested and rolled out.” 

 

Nvidia are currently gathering feedback on their Geforce Drivers from those who are Windows 10 Preview users, which you can submit on their feedback form here. Intel Integrated Graphics currently work very well on the Windows 10 preview, which is likely due to Microsoft using Intel Graphics for their Surface tablets and their general market dominance on the laptop market.

We do not advise gaming on this beta OS, at least until the drivers and the OS mature further. We will let you know if and when any game changing drivers come to Windows 10.

 

You can join the discussion on AMD's upcoming Windows 10 drivers on the OC3D Forums.

I'll most certainly migrate to Windows 10 at some point, but it'll be a minimum of 6-12 months after it's released to stave off issues, driver related and otherwise.Quote

Dude we saw your thread about it.. you should already expect this issue. Its not on the list of priorities from MS and therefore won't be dealt with till later. Its a Technical Preview OS. It's not complete and you shouldn't expect it to be. Stick to W7/8.1 if you want a real OS that works.

If anything you should report it to MS about it. Your more likely to get an official response than on here..

I'll probably wait for reviews. I'm going to upgrade no matter what really. I'd rather just see how it all pans out and if there are specific instructions on how to upgrade or what not.Quote
