Two days back AMD has released a new driver Catalyst 15.9 Beta, which released to provide support and optimization of the version of Beta Star Wars: Battlefront and Fable Legends. Moreover resolves some bugs in Dragon Age: Inquisition under the Mantle API, the stuttering found in Assassin’s Creed Unity under a CrossFire configuration, and small problems encountered with BenQ monitors with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. After the installation of new beta drivers it has been reported that, a lot of users based on Windows 10 PCs have complained the leak VRM (memory for Graphics card) bug, the worst of all, once the application is closed the memory is never freed, being necessary to restart the computer in order to free the memory consumption.

Web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome have increased memory consumption significantly if you have hardware acceleration enabled. This problem also takes place in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 with Radeon HD 7000 Series graphics card and forwards. Unless this problem, the graphics drivers are completely stable, demonstrating that the company has greatly improved in recent versions.

Of course we have a Beta version which is not error-free, so now all we have to do is to wait for a new version of the drivers to fix the problem. This problem could affect those players who are playing games at higher resolutions as VRM play an important role in higher resolution.
