Sorry mate, no way you can see update for this pkg in pacman.
But if you want see such updates then feel free to use [catalyst] repo

I have been using yaourt all the time. (yaourt -S catalyst-test)
I ran yaourt -Sau now, and some updates came up.

But I am shure I have seen some catalyst update some times using pacman, is it only the drivers/catalyst-software that is beeing updated and not the package?

I'm learing everyday :-)
(this is not the right place to discuss this, I know, but it came up)

pacman is a package manager, so it knows all packages which were installed on your system, doesn't matter if they came from official repos or unofficial repos or if they were created locally from any source (including AUR). But pacman is unable to update locally created packages (including AUR) on its own, and it's logical as pacman is not able to create a package, it only works on packages which are already built. AUR only brings scheme on how to build package. But pacman on its own doesn't know how to build package from this scheme. You probably used some aur helper [1] to build catalyst-test package, some of them are able to update packages, but pacman is not and won't be able to do it (though it can see catalyst-test package which you created some time ago, and see it's dependencies - that's why it's not allowing you to update kernel).

I'm bringing my linux < 4.8 issue here, since I can't use the amdgpu driver yet.

I run pacman -Syu every day. catalyst-test is included in this, isn't it?
(I believe I saw this update some days back)

When I ran pacman -Syu, I got this error (in norwegian)
:: catalyst-test: installasjon av linux (4.8.2-1) bryter med avhengigheten 'linux<4.8'
It says that the installation of linux (4.8.2-1) breaks the dependencie 'linux<4.8' for the catalyst-test.

EDIT: Reinstallation of catalyst-test solved the problem :-)

play game unity3D

mangnome commented on 2016-09-03 16:21

When I try to install catalyst-test on manjaro-gnome 16.06.1 x64 using pamac, near the end of the installation there are conflicts with mhwd, linux310-catalyst, catalyst-utils, and ocl-icd. If I choose y for them to be removed by pamac, it eventually fails because of a break in dependency for mhwd. A few weeks ago I tried to manually remove these packages and reinstall them which broke my manjaro installation badly. Is there a simple fix to this? I have an amd 7950 boost gpu.

atm im packing myself for short, weekly, vacations so won't be able to test it, but what game exactly you are talking about? I had no problems with ie. Dota 2

If in console you are catching "libGL error: unable to load driver:" errors you can use this tips:

why i cant play new game unity base???

In amdcccle I'm always disabling v-sync as well, it's not needed when using tear free.
There's also simple tear free switcher which allows switching via console (it comes with desktop entry):

Also keep in mind that working composite has negative impact on performance of fullscreen rendering apps. I'm always disabling this as well before running app/game - in KDE its easy with Alt+Shift+F12 shortcut
