AMD has just released its Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2 hotfix drivers. This version comes with optimizations for the Ashes of the Singularity Benchmark 2.0. The company points out that this benchmark uses multiple DirectX 12 features, including asynchronous shaders, multi-threaded command buffers, and command buffer reordering.
The Crimson 16.2 hotfix also includes performance optimizations for Rise of the Tomb Raider and the SteamVR Performance Test. AMD says its Radeon R9 390, Nano, and Fury series GPUs all reach "VR recommended" status in the SteamVR test, and it reiterates that CrossFire configurations using its Affinity multiGPU feature deliver significant performance scaling in that test.
This release also includes CrossFire improvements for The Division and XCOM 2. Gamers playing Fallout 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider on AMD cards should be happy to know that the 16.2 drivers fix multiple bugs with both games, too. AMD also includes a fix for a black-screen issue when booting with an HDMI monitor connected to systems with a mix of Intel and AMD GPUs, as well as gameplay choppiness in CrossFire configurations using FreeSync.
