Written by Michael Larabel in AMD on 27 May 2014 at 11:50 AM EDT. 56 Comments
Since writing about the features of the Catalyst 14.6 Beta earlier today, the x86/x86_64 proprietary Linux driver has surfaced on a third-party web-site for those wishing to try out this latest AMD Linux graphics driver.

As explained this morning, Catalyst 14.6 Beta for Linux comes with official Ubuntu 14.04 LTS support, driver installer improvements, and various bug-fixes as the primary changes.

While this new Catalyst 14.6 Beta hasn't yet surfaced on AMD's web-site, a Phoronix reader informed me that (ZIP) has posted early access to this beta binary blob. Try it if you wish and be sure to share about your experiences with this new AMD Catalyst Linux graphics driver within our forums.
