Radeon Software 16.8.1 is ready for the RX 470 and RX 460

— 3:14 PM on August 8, 2016

I've been putting AMD's Radeon Software 16.8.1 driver through its paces over the past few days, and now the rest of you can enjoy it, too. The biggest highlights of this release are official support for the Radeon RX 470 and the Radeon RX 460, along with a new Crossfire profile for F1 2016. If you're one of the lucky few with either of those new Radeons, you'll want to grab this driver before starting your engines.

AMD also fixed a raft of minor issues in this release. The WattMan utility should now show the appropriate memory overclocking ceiling for the Radeon RX 480. Overwatch should no longer crash on Radeon RX 480s running in Crossfire. Dota 2 should now get a bigger boost from Crossfired Radeons, and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood should no longer exhibit bumpy or stuttery frame rates on the RX 480. Grab the right set of driver for your system from AMD's download page.
