AMD Crimson Edition Drivers

AMD has released brand new Crimson Edition drivers for all you Radeon owners out there. According to AMD, these drivers offer a performance increase by up to 35% on AMD Radeon R9 390 series products in Doom versus the previous version. Here's a list of known issues as well as resolved issues:

  • A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay".

  • Users in Quad AMD Crossfire technology configurations may be unable to re-enable AMD Crossfire mode when using the global AMD Crossfire option in the "Gaming" tab and toggling it from on to off.

  • The Witcherآ® 3: Wild Hunt inventory and character pages may exhibit flickering in AMD Crossfire technology mode.

  • Call of Dutyآ™: Advanced Warfare may exhibit stuttering when using AMD FreeSyncآ™ technology and AMD Crossfire technology in conjunction.

  • Installing Radeon Software Crimson Edition multiple times on the same machine after rebooting may cause the installer to hang.

  • The AMD Crossfire mode options in Radeon Settings may not take effect on Origin or Uplay applications.

  • Radeon Settings Additional Settings page may not be available when upgrading to Radeon Software Crimson Edition from the current windows update driver. As a work around please clean uninstall all current Radeon Software when upgrading if your system exhibits this issue.

  • Some textures may exhibit flickering in Falloutآ™ 4 when using AMD Crossfire technology.

  • Forza Motorsport 6: Apexآ™ may exhibit brightness flickering when using AMD FreeSyncآ™ technology.
