AMD Crimson

A new set of AMD Crimson drivers, version 17.10.1, are out, with specific support for a couple of new and upcoming games. Both The Evil Within 2 (out later this week) and Shadow of War should see some benefits from these. Vega GPUs are reportedly seeing nice boosts in Shadow of War from these.

Besides that, there isn’t a whole lot else to enthuse about with 17.10.1. If you’re one of the dozens who play Dirt 4 in Crossfire, then this driver is for you; it fixes flickering issues with that set-up. Unless you’re excited by ‘Bezel compensation’ that’s pretty much your lot.

Here’s the summary. And yes, sorry Overwatch fans, the problems with that game and AMD GPUs continue. It’s still listed under Known Issues.
