AMD has released a new set of drivers for its graphics cards that adds support for some of the biggest upcoming games. AMD's Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.1 brings support for Gears of War 4 and Mafia III, and adds a CrossFire profile for Shadow Warrior 2 in DirectX 11 mode.
According to the patch notes, the update also fixes a number of issues. CrossFire-related stuttering and flickering in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Overwatch, Paragon and Battlefield 1 are all resolved. Frame drops in The Crew should be taken care of, too.
There are a few known issues with the drivers that AMD is working on, including a crash that occurs when changing resolution in Rise of the Tomb Raider and a game hang that occurs when playing Tom Clancy's The Division for an extended period. The full patch notes as well as download links for the driver update are available right here.
