Here we are with AMD's next driver update, Radeon Sofware Crimson Edition 16.6.1. This brings the driver version to 16.20.1025. With the changes that come along with the update we will see the usual fixes, game support, and a crossfire profile.

New to this release include bug fixes for display flickering while playing videos in a web browser, Crossfire not taking effect in Origin and Uplay applications, and texture flickering issues with Crossfire on Fallout 4. Meanwhile for Radeon Settings, AMD has fixed an issue where the application might fail to open after performing a Windows update and installing the latest Radeon Software Crimson Edition.

With the fixes behind us, we can move to official game support. With this update we are getting support for the recently released Mirrors Edge Catalyst and the upcoming Paragon by Epic Games. There is also a Crossfire profile for Dark Souls III tucked in to the bundle as well.

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.

    Does Mirror's Edge Catalyst support DirectX 12? I haven't been able to find any information on this one way or the other.

    AFAIK, no.

    Disappointing to hear.

    I hope they improve Xfire's Frametimes

    Finally Crossfire for Dark Souls 3! It is not scaling all that well for me but still not bad and better late than never

    Yes! I have been waiting for a Dark Souls 3 crossfire profile for ages. The optimise 1x1 scaled well but had flickering artifacts. I'll report back after trying this profile.

    Have tested it out thoroughly now. It's scaling even better than it did with optimise 1x1. I was getting ~35 fps at 3840 x 2160 with 1 R9 Nano and now I'm at a locked 60 with 1 R9 Nano and 1 R9 Fury Crossfire. It could be scaling at 100%, but no way to tell due to the 60 fps lock. Are you sure your crossfire is enabled? I don't see how I could be getting up to 100% scaling and yours is 'not that well'. One thing that I had to do was disable AMD Crimson power saving, with that on it wasn't working at all for me.

    Could be a 280x or any older card. CrossFireX for Hawaii cards and newer is a completely different system from older cards.

    Damn, AMD beat Nvidia to the punch with a AAA-title driver. Its pretty darn rare for that to happen. These were available early yesterday (6/6), Nvidia just released theirs today (6/7).

    AMD was first with the Doom driver as well.
