AMD have put out another set of Crimson ReLive drivers today, bringing the version number to 17.6.2. This set largely seem to deal with an 8xMSAA problem in the latest build of Dirt 4.

That’s actually the only thing listed as a fixed issue, though I imagine there might be one or two other unlisted changes under the hood. Still, if you haven’t updated your AMD drivers in a while then 17.6.2 might be an attractive proposition.

From the “known issues” it sounds like corrupted MSAA is still a problem in Rainbow Six: Siege. Borderless Fullscreen and AMD’s FreeSync aren’t playing nicely together in a “small amount of apps” when other programs or launchers are running in the background.

That’s about it. Here’s the run-down on 17.6.2.

Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.6.2 Highlights

Fixed Issues

    • Performance in DiRT4™ when using 8xMSAA is lower than expected with the latest game build.

Known Issues

    • Graphical corruption may be experienced in Tom Clancy’s™: Rainbow Six Siege when MSAA is enabled.

    • Adobe™ Lightroom may experience an application crash with GPU acceleration enabled on Windows® 7 system configurations using Radeon RX 390 Series graphics products.

    • A small amount of apps may experience issues with Borderless Fullscreen mode and AMD FreeSync™ technology if other applications or game launchers are running on the primary screen in the background.

    • Counter-Strike™: Global Offensive and World of Warcraft™ may experience flickering or performance issues the first time the game is launched on a system boot with AMD FreeSync™ technology enabled. Workarounds include exiting and restarting the application or task switching (alt+tab) in and out of the game to fix the issue.
