Just shortly after Nvidia released their latest graphics card drivers, AMD has launched Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2.1 that includes optimizations for Ubisoft's latest triple-A title, Far Cry Primal.

The driver's release notes indicate that the only real update from version 16.2 is the inclusion of a Crossfire profile for Far Cry Primal. However there are a collection of bug fixes to be found, mostly concerning Fallout 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider, as well as general issues with Radeon Software.

If you happened to miss the release of version 16.2, updating to 16.2.1 will also bring optimizations for Ashes of the Singularity, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and the SteamVR Performance test. Crossfire improvements for The Division and XCOM 2 were also introduced.

As always, you can let Radeon Settings automatically update your graphics card drivers for you, or you can grab a manual installer from our driver download section here. If you plan on playing Far Cry Primal any time soon, it's probably a good idea to install this update to ensure you get the best performance.

Great news for the 26% of gamers that use it.
Why the sarcasm? What would the prices of nVidia video cards would be in a world where its market share would be close to 99%? Even now the picture could use some serious improvements. Besides, for a company 10 times smaller than nVidia, AMD's market share is great.

It wasn't sarcasm. Its the truth. Sarcasm would be if I said it makes no difference to the 26% that use it, or That's great for the 73% that use nVidia.
