As more games approach this fall, we can expect GPU manufacturers to keep updates rolling out so that our cards can be ready for the latest games as they arrive. To that end, AMD's Radeon Software release 16.9.2 - driver Version 16.40.2311 - brings with it a collection of fixes, a new CrossFire profile, and support for Microsoft’s latest racing sim, Forza Horizon 3.

Starting with bug fixes, the latest driver addresses RX 400 series issues, including intermittent mouse cursor corruption, occasional crashes during video playback in Mozilla Firefox, and flickering in Rocket league when running in CrossFire mode. Continuing on with CrossFire related issues, AMD has resolved issues with small amounts of stutter while playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in CrossFire mode under DX11, and the possibility of crashing Ashes of the Singularity while playing with DX12 and Multi-GPU enabled.

Meanwhile the Radeon Settings application has a few more fixes of its own this month. Previously, upgrading from a earlier version of Radeon Software Crimson Edition may have caused user settings in Radeon Settings to reset to defaults, so this has been corrected. As has a Radeon Settings crash under Windows 10 Anniversary Edition.

Finally, as part of this hotfix we will also get a CrossFire profile for the upcoming capital ship combat game Dreadnought, and launch-day support for Forza Horizon 3, the latest racing game to be published by Microsoft Studios. Forza is seeing release next week on Tuesday the 27th, though Ultimate Edition owners will get a head start this Friday.

As always, those interested in reading more or installing the updated hotfix drivers for AMD’s desktop, mobile, and integrated GPUs can find them either under the driver update section in Radeon Settings or on AMDs Radeon Software Crimson Edition download page.

    What for? Since nVidia had released GTX 1060, no one cares for AMD's RX series now, save a few nVidia never die hards. And soon the GTX 1050 will have its own deep dive, with polaris long forgotten.

    Why should any site apply bias in this way?, it's just not journalism.

    Some of us are interested in the tech and the product, not just the latter, and not just fanboyism. The 1060 is clearly the better card in most respects. You wouldnt have that card at that price if AMD didnt put pressure on the market with the 480. The 480 has its merits too. DX12 is the Gorilla in the room when it comes to the newer cards. Market share shows that. AMD has finally gained ground. Not much, but a noticeable bit. Sure some will never buy one or the other but its not Anandtech jobs to advertise for one or the other. They have been traditionally fair in their assessments and unbiased in their recommendations, and I believe they will continue to. Whether we will see the article in a reasonable amount of time...thats another story.

    I just bought a 480 8GB for two reasons. It was cheap (same as the 1060 3GB) and whilst I had the 1060 3GB in my cart, I discovered they cut down the die and said nothing and pretended the RAM was the only difference.

    I didn't like that. I think it is misleading, the market has defined itself on model differences for die changes and didn't want to encourage that behaviour with my wallet.

    I'm not upgrading anytime soon as I have 290X 8GB cards in Crossfire(was a great deal @ $495 total) so I haven't delved too deeply into the 480 vs 1060 bc it doesn't offer more performance for me. I have been considering one for a DT rig for the gf though. So 480 4GB vs 8GB is only memory, but as for the 1060 3GB vs 6GB is memory AND a cut down die? What part was cut? Gonna look in Bench to see what the diff in performance is. Even if negligible, aside from the memory limitation I wonder how much it will be effected once more games are DX12 centric vs DX11

    They've cut one of the multiprocessors from the die.

    I had crossfire 1GB 260X's, so it's a big jump for me, especially on the memory front. I have a 4K TV and even on the lowest settings got like 10 frames on Fallout 4, at 1080p75 and 1440p60 I ran it high and it did 60 min no issues.

    The latter two are still coming. I don't have a date I'm comfortable giving you, but they're in the works.=)

    As for the former, I may write a bit more in the future. But the previous Polaris and RX 480 articles already contain most of what I know about the architecture.

    Thanks for the reply, appreciate that you're still working on them.

    However, can I just point out the ads are extremely annoying these days? They're obvious clickbait titles with a random celebrity photo attached, and theyre loading really slow as well.

    "However, can I just point out the ads are extremely annoying these days?"

    Absolutely. I don't control the ads, but all reports are passed on to the appropriate persons.
  • erple2 - Friday, September 23, 2016 - link

    Sadly the clickbait articles are the reason why I don't look at this site in chrome for Android anymore. Firefox with ublock origins for Android. I also used to whitelist the site with my adblocker of choice, but I hate the taboola style ads now.

    Ignore the haters regarding the Conte t of the site, though. I still come here for review advice for buying tech. Hopefully, the next pixel phone review will come out quickly after the 4th...
