AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.3

AMD late Wednesday released the Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.3 Beta drivers. The drivers come with optimization, including CrossFire support, for the week's biggest game releases, "Battlefield 1" Open Beta, and "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided." The drivers address a rare bug noticed on machines with AMD "Polaris" GPUs, in which a blank or colored screen is noticed intermittently when gaming. Grab the drivers from the links below.

is there a reason why there are so many known issues and they don't get fixed immediately?

Of course, they don't have enough money to do it.

Ding ding ding. Both are fixing bugs that game devs refuse to resolve.

And EA is known for rushing out BF games.

BF1 might be different. They are copying Battlefront. Just not using the stupid ground powerup idea from that. Now you gotta sit in a respawn screen waiting for a vehicle to open instead of spawning in game and actually playing the game.

Yay for Failfield!

there are ALWAYS issues, you cannot have perfect human written software at such a scale & complexity

what is the rush to fix a minor one such as alt tab or an overlay when there are bigger bugs or larger amount of users affected?

game developers have anything to do with the gaming evolved overlay? or supporting a gpu that came out after the game?

you also mean game publishers

Yes, its OpenGL but Nvidia = 60 - 120 fps AMD = 30 - 50 fps, its really annoying.

Yeah nVidia have always done OpenGL better than ATI/AMD it seems as though AMD treat as an after thought and would rather not have to do anything about it at all if they could get away with it
