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 16.4.1 Highlights
Support for:

  • Quantum Break™
    • Upto 35% faster performance using Quantum Break™ on Radeon™ R9 Fury X than with Radeon™ Software Crimson Edition 16.3.2(1).
  • Oculus Rift™
  • HTC Vive™
Resolved Issues
  • Frame rate capping issues experienced in some DirectX®12 applications is resolved.
  • Hitman™ may experience flickering when played in DirectX® 11 mode using high game shadow settings.
Known Issues
  • A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay"
  • Need For Speed™ may experience poor scaling or flickering in AMD Crossfire™ mode. As a work around users can disable the profile through the Radeon™ Settings game manager.
  • The Division™ may experience flickering in AMD Crossfire™ mode.
  • Power efficiency toggle in Radeon™ Settings is showing up for some unsupported products.
  • XCOM2™ users may experience an application crash when using AMD Crossfire™ mode. As a work around please disable AMD Crossfire™ for the games profile in the Radeon™ Settings Gaming tab.

  • A small subset of AMD Radeon™ R9 380 users may be experiencing slower than expected fan speeds. A work around is to raise your fan speeds through AMD Overdrive in Radeon™ Settings manually to a desired amount.
  • HDMI Scaling options may not be available in Radeon™ Settings on some system configurations.

i stopped doing it, i would post hours before the news team did, and the mods would lock my threads.

Very irritating.

Not everyone reads the news section. I only read this forum, nothing else.

Beta confirmed, download file is designated as "Non WHQL".

Not sure it will improve performance on my old 7970, but I'll give it a try.

It's not as simple as that, most of the improvements usually just state boosts for the new model cards, or new Crossfire profiles for certain games, neither of which apply to me.

Besides that, I don't plan on picking up Hitman until all episodes are available.

Ah, well to that I would say improving performance and fixing bugs, isn't really the same thing.

I've always preferred getting wind of new GPU drivers in the Graphics Card section, I see nothing wrong with it.
