Earlier today, AMD has released their Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.1 drivers. These continue AMD's trend of releasing drivers alongside major titles, which, this time, are Mafia III (October 7th) and Gears of War 4 (October 11th). Both of these titles are multiple days out, apart from a handful of insiders with advanced copies, which makes it nice for gamers by letting them optimize their machine ahead of time, on their own schedule, before launch.

The driver also includes a handful of interesting fixes. First, a handful of games, such as Overwatch, Battlefield 1, and Paragon, should no longer flicker when set to CrossFire mode. Also, performance issues in The Crew should be fixed with this release.

You can download AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.1 from their website.

AMD drivers need longer work to catch out Nvidia drivers. AMD they have never been good on drivers. Because of drivers i get beack on Nvidia cards after i test out some AMD cards and some games works bad on AMD because drivers support.

That or you need to tinker & tweak for every game you want decent performance. And with a steam library of over 200 games where most need that no thnx.

And you install and play all 200 at the same time do you? :-P

Most games work pretty well out of the box. You always have to go into games and setup resolutions and key bindings anyway, so some tweaks will always be made. Those other more detailed options are for those who wish to tinker to get the utmost performance from a particular title.

You do realize that both AMD and Nvidia have features to optimize your games for you, right?

Does Crimson have the option to auto optimize games like the NVIDIA software does?

October 6, 2016 | 11:55 AM - Posted by maonayze

Yes, you can have profiles and optimize for every individual game if that is what you want to do.

Mind you a lot of people say that Nvidia's automatic optimizations are not as good as setting up the games yourself. A little time spent with each game manually setting things up is still the best way to get the best performance out of them. This goes for AMD optimizations too.

AWESOME!

would be how I'd describe AMD drivers for the last couple years.

Keep it up AMD!
