Radeon Software Crimson Edition is AMD's revolutionary new graphics software that delivers redesigned functionality, supercharged graphics performance, remarkable new features, and innovation that redefines the overall user experience. Every Radeon Software release strives to deliver new features, better performance and stability improvements.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.1 Highlights:

Added Support For:

  • Gears of War 4
  • Mafia III
  • Support for Oculus’ Asynchronous Spacewarp (ASW) feature on select Radeon RX 400 series graphics products. ASW compares previously rendered frames, detects the motion between them, and extrapolates the position of scene components to create a new synthetic frame. Using this technology, synthetic frames will accurately approximate the fully-rendered frames they’re designed to replace.

New AMD CrossFire profile added for DirectX 11:

  • Shadow Warrior2

Fixed Issues

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided may experience minor stutter during gameplay when using AMD CrossFire mode or may crash when launching the in game benchmark.
  • The Crew may experience a random or sudden FPS drop while playing.
  • Battlefield1 may experience flickering on some surfaces when using AMD CrossFire mode.
  • Radeon WattMan may fail to keep Power Limit settings after hitting apply in some cases.
  • Overwatch may experience flickering character models while in the hero selection menu or during gameplay in AMD Crossfire mode.
  • Paragon may experience flickering while using AMD FreeSync technology and AMD CrossFire mode in conjunction.
  • Pixel Format option is no longer missing for some Radeon RX 400 series products in Radeon Settings.

Known Issues

  • A few game titles may fail to launch, experience performance issues or crash if the third party application "Raptr" has its game overlay enabled. A workaround is to disable the overlay if this is experienced.
  • The Division may experience a game hang during extended periods of play while in AMD CrossFire mode.
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider may experience an application crash when changing the resolution from in-game menus when running DirectX12. Users can restart the game to complete the resolution change.
  • While using or having Radeon WattMan open in Radeon Settings in AMD CrossFire mode, the secondary/slave graphics processor clocks will increase to their highest state.
