Radeon Software 16.6.2 is ready for the Radeon RX 480

In the unlikely event you're the new owner of a Radeon RX 480, AMD has a fresh batch of drivers for you. Radeon Software 16.6.2 adds support for the new card. It's also the first release of Radeon Software with AMD's new WattMan utility on board, a replacement for the older OverDrive overclocking and system monitoring suite.

WattMan uses the same updated interface as the rest of Radeon Settings. It lets overclockers tweak seven separate voltage/frequency states for Polaris GPUs, along with memory, fan speed, and temperature parameters. A histogram-style monitoring interface tracks the values of these parameters over time. WattMan also lets users create per-application overclocking profiles, should one game fail to run using settings that let another perform just fine.

Along with WattMan, these drivers add a Crossfire profile for World of Tanks, plus a Crossfire toggle that lets users enable or disable their multi-GPU setups with one click. Folks with HDMI displays can now scale the output for those displays directly from Radeon Settings. These new drivers also let users adjust display color temperature from within the utility, too.

For all the details, check out AMD's release notes. Radeon owners can download the appropriate driver version for their particular operating system from AMD's support page.
