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.
Corruption may be experienced in Rise of the Tomb Raider using the DirectX®12 API on some Hybrid Graphics configurations when performing a task switch.
Shader Cache may remain be enabled when set to "off" in Radeon Settings on some Hybrid Graphics configurations.
Radeon RX 480 graphics may experience intermittent stuttering in The Division™ when high game settings are used and vsync is enabled.
Battlefield™ 4 may experience intermittent crashes when using Mantle. As a work around users are suggested to switch to DirectX®11.

Don't own an AMD card, but it's good to see such regular updates from team red.

The average rate is 3 drivers every month.

Need at least 6 driver updates to compete with nvidia.lol couldn't resist. Seriously though we need some vega asap :-)

Still, AMD performances are clunky in World of Warcraft compared to Nvidia.

I don't know why my GTX 560 Ti can mantain 60 fps at 1920x1080 and good details while my gf's R9 390 (and we have the same exact pcs, they're clones just with different graphic card) sometime stutters and slow down the fps counter frown.gif

WoW is a very popular game even after all these years, it seems strange to me that AMD is not fixing anything about that game.
Saw on internet that you can fix performances with the Radeon cards by using the old Catalyst driver, but she doesn't play only WoW and needs the new Crimson ones

Probably no Vega until Q1 2017.

It'd be nice if they would fix mantle again for BF4... was working fine until the last few drivers. DX11 works fine and all but they pushed mantle so hard and now aren't going to support it properly? And yes, it still works 99% of the time for me, but it sometimes requires a restart of the game.

No point on supporting a dead API. Are you playing at 1080p?

Use old driver for old games, it's always been that way.

No 4k. Yes, DX11 is realistically the same performance at that res on my single 290x. I just want to use it because I did before and would prefer to use the faster option for the cpu.
