We live in a time of plentiful AMD drivers (not something I’d have said a few years back), and today’s Crimson release bumps the release version up to 16.11.1. As you’d probably imagine, this is largely in support of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
There’s also a DirectX 11 Crossfire profile for the recently released Titanfall 2, and a selection of fixed issues. These include surface flickering in Battlefield 1 when using Crossfire (though I have seen reports that this is not universally fixed), and sorting out a 390 crash in Unigine’s Heaven benchmark when in OpenGL mode.
Here’s the highlights log.
