[AMD] Crimson 16.7.2 Hotfix

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.2


amd-crimson.jpg

Highlights
The "compatibility mode" UI toggle was designed to reduce total power with minimal performance impact on AMD Radeon™ RX480 reference boards and has been made available to users in the Global Settings menu of Radeon Settings (first introduced in the previous Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 driver). This toggle is in "off" by default.

Fixed Issues
In the previous Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 driver the "Restore Factory Defaults" option under Preferences of Radeon Settings Software would not set the "Compatibility Mode" UI toggle to its default "OFF" value. This is fixed in the Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.2 driver. The "Restore Factory Defaults" options resets all Radeon Settings to their factory default values.

Known Issues
  • A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay".
  • Radeon™ Pro Duo may experience a black screen in Total War™: Warhammer with the games API set to DirectX®12 and V-Sync enabled.
  • DiRT™ Rally may experience flickering terrain in some races when the advanced blending option is enabled in the games settings page.
  • Some Overdrive settings may not appear in Radeon Settings for Radeon™ Fury X when in AMD Crossfire mode.
  • Dota™2 may crash when using the Vulkan™ API and the user changes resolutions or quality settings.
  • Battlefield™ 4 may experience crashes when using Mantle. As a work around users are suggested to switch to DirectX®11.
  • Need for Speed™ may experience flickering on some light sources in AMD Crossfire mode.
  • Frame Rate Target Control gaming profiles may fail to enable for some games.
  • Radeon Wattman may retain settings of an overclock after it has failed. If you have failed an overclock with a system hang or reboot make sure to use the "Reset" option in the Radeon WattMan settings page when the system has rebooted.
  • Low frame rate or stutter may be experienced Wolfenstein®: The Old Blood™ on Radeon™ RX 480.
  • Assassin's Creed® Syndicate may experience a game crash or hang when in game settings are set to high or greater.
  • Disabling AMD Crossfire mode on Radeon™ RX 480 may disable the device in Windows® Device Manager. A workaround is to reboot the system to re-enable the device.

Just having Windows installed you've already installed enough spyware. You can disable the installation options if possible if not, use an older driver, or accept it and use it, there is not much else. IMHO it's nothing spying like, just changes to the UI.

"Settings" is Radeon Settings, the overhauled version of Catalyst Control Center. You can install the driver without Settings, but you won't be able to do things like create custom profiles for individual games.

Branding seems to be a module that controls the ads for Gaming Evolved titles on the splash screen of Radeon Settings. They're pretty benign and can be disabled under Preferences.
