Following on from the game's initial release last Friday, AMD has launched a new Radeon Software driver update to bring some specific optimizations for the game as well as a CrossFire profile for mutli-GPU users. Rise of the Tomb Raider is a Nvidia-backed title, so the green team managed to get its own ‘Game Ready' driver update a bit faster in time for launch day though users did report issues with the SLI profile.
We already did our own game analysis of Rise of the Tomb Raider, featuring graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia and in general, the game performs quite well on modern hardware. However, AMD users may find that this driver helps them a bit.
The driver is known as the Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.1.1 update and right now, there are two known issues listed in the driver notes for Rise of the Tomb Raider, in which users may face flickering in some game locations when the game is left idle with CrossFire switched on. The game may also crash when launched with very high settings, SMAA and the resolution set to 4K.
If you're running an AMD card, you can find the driver update, HERE.
KitGuru Says: I found Rise of the Tomb Raider to be quite the performer, I also happen to think that it is the best looking game available on the PC right now so keep that in mind when trying to run it. Have any of you tried Rise of the Tomb Raider yet? How is it running for you? I know some have had issues with SLI, so I'd be interested to hear what the CrossFire experience is like.
