It's driver update day in graphics card land. Both AMD and Nvidia have new driver releases out in preparation for some upcoming game releases. The red team has released Radeon Software Crimson Edition hotfix version 16.2.1, which brings an updated CrossFire profile for Ubisoft's Far Cry Primal. This minor update comes hot on the heels of the 16.2 release, which added optimizations for Ashes of the Singularity, CrossFire improvements for The Division and XCOM 2, and bug fixes for Fallout 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
On the green side of the fence, Nvidia released version 362.00 of its graphics card drivers, which have a WHQL certification badge. Nvidia says they're "Game Ready" for a handful of new releases. Far Cry Primal gets performance optimizations and an updated SLI profile, while Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and the latest update of Dying Light (which now supports Nvidia's PCSS) received unspecified improvements.
