AMD's latest Radeon drivers add day-one support for 'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare'

  1. AMD has published a new set of Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers that you’ll certainly want to grab if you’re planning on picking up the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise.

    Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.11.1 drivers add day-one support for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as well as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a remastered version of the original Modern Warfare from 2007 which some feel is the best game in the franchise to date.

    A quick note to those looking to buy Infinite Warfare: only the Legacy, Legacy Pro and Digital Deluxe editions of the game come with Modern Warfare Remastered. You won’t get the remaster if you buy the base edition and you can’t buy it as a standalone game.

    AMD’s latest drivers also introduce a DirectX 11 CrossFire profile for Titanfall 2 and fix the half dozen issues listed below:

    • AMD XConnect™ Technology will now allow Microsoft Office applications to migrate to iGPU on unplug.
    • Flickering may be observed on some surfaces in a few maps or locations in Battlefield™1 in AMD CrossFire mode.
    • Radeon R9 390 graphics series may experience a crash or application hang when running Unigine™ Heaven using OpenGL™.
    • The Radeon WattMan feature may intermittently display a Radeon Software popup error regarding Radeon WattMan for non-supported products.
    • The Division™ may experience an application freeze or hang when running in AMD CrossFire mode after extended periods of play.
    • OBS screen capture may stutter after extended periods of use while capturing video and watching or streaming content in a web browser.

    AMD acknowledges that another seven issues persist which they are no doubt working to resolve for the next driver update. You can check out those issues and manually down the new drivers over on AMD’s website.

    "AMD XConnectâ„¢ Technology will now allow Microsoft Office applications to migrate to iGPU on unplug."

    Really? I hate to rag on AMD, but they needed a "technology" to do what intel iGPUs have dont for, what, 10 years now? How long have we had switchable graphics? Unless they are talking about HSA, but that isnt mentioned here.

    Also, how are they still having issues on the division? That game is months old.
