AMD Crimson

There’s a new AMD driver release in town today, taking Crimson to 16.10.1 and adding specific support for the upcoming Mafia 3 and Gears of War 4. It also adds a Crossfire profile for Shadow Warrior 2 (out next week as well).

The fixes list is mostly full of statements addressing flickering when using Crossfire (Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Battlefield 1, Paragon, Overwatch), and indicates that these should no longer be a problem. In addition, The Crew should no longer suffer from sudden, unexplained frame-rate drops on AMD GPUs.

Look below for the summary of supported games, fixed issues, and remaining known problems with Crimson 16.10.1.
