AMD have become better about software and driver support for their GPUs of late (perhaps understanding that Nvidia’s superiority in that area is probably the biggest reason that they have failed to keep up with their rival so far).

Their newest update for Raedon Software Crimson Edition, version 16.11.5, further reinforces that notion, including optimizations for the anticipated release of Watch Dogs 2, as well as fixes and enhancements for other high profile games like Dishonored 2.

You can check out the full patch list of what the new update brings below. There are still a fair few known issues left, but hopefully AMD resolve them with time.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.11.5 Highlights

Support For:

Watch Dogs®2

New AMD CrossFire profile added for DirectX® 11:

Dishonored™2

Fixed Issues

The Division™ game world may flicker during game play when using AMD CrossFire technology.
