If you've got a Radeon and are of a mind to engage in some of the ol' sneaky-stabby-shooty, you may want to pause your endeavors and grab the Radeon Software 16.11.3. The new release dropped yesterday with support for Arkane's Dishonored 2. The update also resolves a major bug with X-Connect wherein Steam and Origin would self-terminate when unplugging an external GPU.
We're only a third of the way through the month and this already is the third driver release from AMD. Frequent releases are a good thing, but it's a little difficult to track them all. The 16.11.2 version released on November 4 was a minor one that primarily served to increase the shader cache storage limit for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Check the release notes for that version here.
The same list of known issues that's been hanging around for a while now is still present with the new 16.11.3 drivers, so you may want to stay away from Raptr, disable Vulkan in DOTA 2, and disable hardware acceleration in Chrome. Also, folks with the Anniversary Edition of Windows 10 and secure boot enabled won't be able to install these drivers since they lack WHQL certification. That little issue is Microsoft's fault, not AMD's, though. Pick up the new drivers at AMD's download site.
