AMD is hot on the trail of the newest games, releasing their newest Crimson Edition driver, version 16.10.1, that includes performance enhancements as well as full support for Microsoft’s upcoming Gears of War 4 and 2K Games’ Mafia III, among other fixes inside.
AMD’s Crimson 16.10.1 are ready for duty
The new drivers, Crimson 16.10.1, also bring about a whole host of new improvements and other fixes that maintain AMD’s vision of having stable drivers out at least every month. Once you install these, which can be done from within Radeon Settings itself, you’ll find that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will stutter less in CrossFire, The Crew will no longer have a puzzling drop in FPS and Battlefield 1 will no longer have flickering surfaces should you be using CrossFire. There’s more, too, including a new CrossFire profile for Shadow Warrior 2. AMD wasn’t kidding when they said they wanted to fix the framepacing issues and microstutter that was far worse in CrossFire than in competing technologies. They aren’t quite there, but progress is certainly being made.
