It's a good season for PC gaming, all right. There have been more than a few high-profile releases lately, and one could say graphics driver teams are working hard to keep up with the demand. AMD's team just released Radeon Software Crimson Edition version 16.5.3, which is optimized for Blizzard's Overwatch, Total War: Warhammer, and the Vulkan-enabled version of DotA 2.
The new software also offers support for AMD CrossFire in Total War: Warhammer and Overwatch. Along with support for these new games, the Crimson 16.5.3 release ought to fix a handful of bugs. CrossFire users should no longer see flickering textures in The Division or stuttering in Fallout 4. Those using AMD's XConnect external GPU technology should no longer experience occasional BSODs when unplugging their cards, too. Last but not least, AMD says it fixed a number of issues with the Radeon Settings application. AMD card owners can grab the newest release here.
