AMD Crimson 16.9.1 Hotfix Graphics Driver Released (Vulkan API v1.0.21)




AMD Crimson 16.8.3 - software info

AMD has released a hotfix graphics driver that brings new CrossFire profiles for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (DirectX 12) and DOTA 2 (new CrossFire profile for DX11), and fixes the following issues:

  • A small number of 144Hz non-FreeSync enabled displays may exhibit flickering during gaming or on desktop.
  • FreeSync may stay enabled while on desktop causing flickering.
  • Grand Theft Auto V may experience an application hang after loading story mode.
  • DiRT Rally rain drops may flicker when using high or ultra in game settings.
  • DOOM may experience a hang on game exit in some limited AMD PowerXpress configurations.
  • Total War Warhammer may experience negative AMD CrossFire scaling on some Radeon RX 400 series configurations.
  • GPU utilization may remain high when idle after running SteamVR performance benchmark.
  • Pixel format options may be missing from Radeon Settings for some limited system configurations on Radeon RX 480 graphics.
  • Radeon Software may intermittently fail to install or hang on some AMD CrossFire configurations. If this happens users can reboot and re-install without issue as a workaround.
  • Some Radeon RX 400 series graphics products may experience high GPU usage when resuming from sleep.

Crimson 16.9.1 supports all recent Radeon GPUs (RX 400, R9, R7, R5, HD 7700, HD 7900, HD8500, HD 8900).
