It’s Catalyst 15.9, which itself is also a beta release. According to AMD, its latest beta driver contains “performance and quality” optimizations for Battlefront, along with the DirectX 12 optimizations for the Fable Legends: Benchmark.

In addition to performance tweaks, Catalyst 15.9 resolves several issues. They include:

There are also a lot of known issues, such as GTA V crashing on some Radeon R9 390X GPUs and flickering in the Battlefront beta if Crossfire is enabled. You can read the full list of issues in the release notes.

If and when you’re ready to download the driver, go here (32-bit) or here (64-bit).

As for Battlefront, it releases in beta form on October 8. EA is considering it a “technical test” to give fans a small taste of what to expect. There will be three modes spread across three planets, including Walker Assault on Hoth (40-player battle with Rebels trying to destroy the Empire’s onslaught of AT-ATs), Drop Zone on Sullust (8v8 matches as you fight for control of escape pods), and Survival Mission (play alone or with a friend to hold off waves of Imperial forces).
