AMD's latest update to its Radeon drivers is ready for download, and this time around the update addresses issues in a specific configuration for just one game: Mass Effect: Andromeda. If you're running BioWare's latest epic space romp on a multi-GPU Radeon setup, the Radeon 17.3.3 driver update is for you.
The update adds a new Crossfire profile for running Mass Effect: Andromeda in DirectX 11 mode. Adding "-RenderDevice.AmdCrossfireEnable 1" to the game's command line will fire up the game with CrossFire on. Texture flickering with the game in that same configuration should now be taken care of, too.
The rest of the update notes concern known issues AMD continues to work on. Issues specific to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands and Sniper Elite 4 are among those noted, along with continuing difficulty with flickering in World of Warcraft and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Game-specific drivers are standard fare these days, but AMD went the extra mile to ensure that Andromeda is running at its full potential. Check out the release notes for the Radeon 17.3.3 drivers, or just go ahead and download them.
