Just in time to coincide with today’s Titanfall 2 release, AMD have released a new set of 16.10.3 Crimson drivers. The changelog notes a specific fix for an “intermittent [Titanfall 2] game crash” on older Graphics Core Next cards.
That’s it for major listed changes in 16.10.3, although a post from a Respawn employee on Neogaf implies that the new drivers may help improve performance on older AMD cards as well. Worth a try if you’re struggling for a stable frame-rate on an older set-up.
The changelog also covers a range of “known issues”, including continued problems with the third-party ‘Raptr’ application. Here are the ‘highlight’ notes, in full.
Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.3 Highlights
- Fixed an issue for Titanfall 2™ where a limited set of Graphics Core Next products may experience an intermittent game crash.
- A few game titles may fail to launch, experience performance issues or crash if the third party application “Raptr” has its game overlay enabled. A workaround is to disable the overlay if this is experienced.

- The Division™ may experience checkered corruption when using character model overlays or the game menu.
