A new set of AMD Crimson ReLive drivers (17.8.1) are out now, providing pre-emptive support for Quake Champions. That game comes to Early Access tomorrow (22 August). 17.8.1 also support last week’s release Agents of Mayhem.
In addition, they should provide the latest support for AMD’s new Vega GPUs (if you can actually get hold of one). The list of fixes includes (for the second time) mention of Tekken 7 on 380 series cards. Hopefully the Chapter 13 crash really has been fixed this time.
Other notable fixes include GTA V (occasional application crashes), and Forza Horizon 3’s long load times on AMD hardware. You can read the full summary of changes below.
