Not to be outdone by its rivals, AMD also released new drivers for Forza Horizon 3. The Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 release includes specific optimizations for Microsoft's new racing title as well as a CrossFire profile for the upcoming spaceflight sim Dreadnought.
Other than adding support for the new games, the new drivers appear to be a bug-fix release. A bevy of dastardly bugs have been squished, including crashes in Ashes of the Singularity, Firefox, and AMD's own Radeon Settings. Stutter in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's DX11 mode should be resolved, and flickering in certain CrossFire and Eyefinity scenarios should be straightened out.
There are still known issues, of course. Rise of the Tomb Raider may crash if you change the resolution in DirectX 12 mode, but the change should take when you restart the game. Overwatch may suffer flickering in CrossFire mode, Dreadnought may flicker in FreeSync, and Paragon may flicker when using both at once. Arguably the most notable known issue is that some games may crash when the Raptr overlay is enabled. Raptr is the basis for the AMD Gaming Evolved application, which—perhaps not-so-coincidentally—is not included with this driver set.
