AMD launches Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 update

Just last night, Nvidia released its latest Game Ready driver update in preparation for Forza Horizon 3 next week and now, AMD has gone ahead and released a new optimised driver for Radeon GPU users as well. Earlier today, AMD made Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 available to download, bringing a bunch of fixes, a new CrossFire profile and more.

If any of you have early access to Dreadnought, you will now be able to run that game in CrossFire mode. On top of that, as previously mentioned, this driver is optimised for Forza Horizon 3, which is coming out next week on PC.


For those in need of bug fixes, this driver addresses intermittent mouse cursor corruption when running an RX 400-series GPU, it also fixes a flickering issue caused by running Eyefinity with monitors in Portrait mode, as well as a flickering issue with Rocket League. Firefox browser users should no longer experience crashes during video playback with the RX 400-series. An issue with the driver not responding when saving new profiles has also been fixed for Windows 10 Anniversary Edition users, speaking of which, an HDMI audio issue has also been fixed for those running Microsoft's newest OS update.

Those running Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on a Radeon 7000-series GPU should no longer experience artifacting in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. On top of that, those running this game in DX11 mode with CrossFire enabled should no longer experience stutter during cinematics

While there are a lot of fixes in place, there are some key known issues still floating around, including CrossFire stutter when playing CS:GO, and flickering when in the hero selection menu for Overwatch. Some users may also experience crashes with Rise of the Tomb Raider in DX12 mode. There are some more details on known issues over on the driver download page.

You can download the latest AMD driver, HERE.

KitGuru Says: AMD has been quite snappy with the driver updates so far this year. How have you guys been finding the experience since the launch of Radeon Software Crimson?
