A new AMD driver, Crimson ReLive Edition 17.1.1, is now available, offering support for the upcoming Resident Evil 7. It also addresses a crashing problem with R9 380 series cards and Dishonored 2.
To be honest, I thought those Dishonored 2 crashes were just another aspect of that troubled PC port; but it seems that some of them may have been an AMD issue. Anyway, hopefully that’s genuinely fixed now. In addition, 17.1.1 says it has fixed an issue with Multi GPU flicking in Paragon when running DirectX 11.
The full set of fixed issues, as well as ongoing ‘known’ problems with Crimson 17.1.1 can be read below.
