AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.5.2

AMD posted its second Radeon Software Crimson Edition release for this month, version 16.5.2 Beta. The drivers add optimization for "DOOM" (2016), the season's hottest shooter and a revival of the epic FPS franchise. The drivers also add CrossFire profiles for "Battleborn," letting it take advantage of multiple GPUs, and dual-GPU graphics cards, such as the Radeon Pro Duo. The drivers also fix texture corruption issues in "Star Wars: Battlefront," and "League of Legends" in CrossFire mode. Grab the drivers from the links below.

Xcom 2 came out on February 5, 2016, and AMD is just now fixing micro-stuttering issues? and didnt CS:GO come out years ago (2012)?

It's not about that, XCOM II had some patches that fixed something and broke something else, thus the need for more "help" from video card makers. Same with CS:GO and probably any other game :P

My only issue with recent drivers is my core clock throttling back. I have to use old 15.12 drivers otherwise my core drops down to like 800 while in game. The power efficiency setting doesn't help. This is on a R9 380

What if AMD is fixing stuff instead of lazy authors of games? Has that ever crossed your mind?

That would be a really bad idea for AMD, because they dont have the resources to get fixes out in a timely matter, and it will look bad if they fix issues months after a games launch, especially if nvidia beats them to the punch....

Oh wait.

Seriously though, game devs should be fixing their games, not AMD. hopefully DX12 fixes that issue a bit, although im not counting on it.

Just when I think they can't optimize the drivers for more card any better. WHACK! The go and hit another one right out of the park. Thanks AMD! Keep 'em comin'. :rockout:
