AMD has just slipped in its fifth Radeon driver release for November. The Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.11.5 is out now, and it primary feature is game-specific support for Ubisoft's Watch Dogs 2. That's not the only improvement, though. Dishonored 2 now has a CrossFire profile for DirectX 11, and flickering issues with CrossFire setups in The Division and Battlefield 1 should be resolved.
Now onto known issues. Dishonored 2 still won't work in Crossfire mode on Windows 7, so multi-GPU users still clinging to the pre-Modern experience are out of luck. Streaming video using the H.264 format may display graphical corruption on Polaris cards, too. There are also a few issues hanging around from older versions, including occasional crashes in Doom and Dota 2 when using those games' Vulkan back-ends. Check out the full release notes here, or pick up the new driver at AMD's download page.
