post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.1 Highlights

Support for:
  • Radeon RX 470 Graphics
  • Radeon RX 460 Graphics


New AMD Crossfire profile available for:
  • F1 2016


Fixed Issues
  • Max memory overclock available on Radeon RX 480 being too low in Radeon WattMan has been resolved.
  • Overwatch™ may experience an application crash on some Radeon™ RX 480 configurations when using AMD Crossfire technology mode.
  • The Division poor Crossfire scaling may be experienced in some low resolution configurations when using AMD Crossfire technology mode.
  • DOTA2™ may experience lower than expected performance when in AMD Crossfire mode.
  • Radeon Settings may not report the correct Vulkan™ driver or API version information.
  • Firefox™ may experience an application crash when hardware acceleration is enabled for content playback.
  • Low frame rate or stutter may be experienced Wolfenstein®: The Old Blood™ on Radeon™ RX 480.
  • Updating drivers through Radeon Settings may sometimes fail with an error message.

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".
  • Ark Survival Evolved™ may experience an error message when trying to launch the game in some configurations.
  • DOTA2™ may experience an application hang when using the Vulkan™ API and changing resolution or game/quality settings.

The driver is just trash. Now most users with a Freesync monitor, including me, having problems even on desktop when freesync is enabled. Refresh rate fluctuating like crazy, even dropping down to 40s-50s. AMD is just making it worse with every new driver.

So much for AMD finally improving its reputation on drivers...

Fixed memory overclock limit confirmed. At least after FFR freshness.

Also gave me a nice Firestrike ultra boost. very small increase but scores are more stable for me now. I'd say other than your freesync problem, AMD is heading in the right direction on the drivers.

Here's 1430 gpu and 2210 on a fresh load with the new driver:



Here's the same settings but the 16.7.2 driver

3257 To be fair I may have had some things messed up on my os. I ad to reload for a reason.

looking through my results I found:

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9704849

3295 at the same settings but most scores were lower.

Difference is slight enough that it could be my os. Not sure. Anyone else seeing a boost or was it my ffr that helped?

my computer wont wake up from sleep mode with these.. i also noticed a couple times, both gpus were at 100% and hot, like 70c at idle.

Only issue I've seen was a metro last light bug that I couldn't recreate after a reboot. VDDC is closer to VID and stays more stable with this driver version but it also bumps up once in a while past VID it seems. Old version stayed below. Doesn't seem to affect temps for me but I'm on water.

this driver crashes overwatch for me and several others on the OW forums. Pity as it gave a good fps boost when it DID work tongue.gif
