AMD Crimson Software 16.11.1 update answers the Call of Duty

Just as new AAA game titles trigger driver update releases from Nvidia, the same thing happens with the folks over at AMD. Today's bit of driver news is the red team's latest Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.11.1 driver release. The new driver's main feature is support for the latest titles in the Call of Duty universe, Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered.

The driver also includes a new Crossfire profile for Titanfall 2, as well as a collection of bugfixes for AMD's XConnect external graphics card technology. The release also includes fixes for flickering in Battlefield 1 when Crossfire is enabled, Radeon R9 390 crashes in the Unigine Heaven benchmarking tool, crashes in The Division, error messages in the Radeon Wattman tweaking utility, and stuttering during OBS screen capture sessions. Owners of AMD graphics chips can read the full release notes, or skip all those words and just download the software here.

    Guru3D shows RX 480 beating GTX 1060 in this game… On the DX11 codepath. It matches the Fury X at 1080P as well. Is AMD finally doing something right?

      [quote<]It matches the Fury X at 1080P as well.[/quote<] That's a sign of something, but probably not something good. The Fury X is [i<]supposed[/i<] to beat the Rx 480 (hell, on paper it's only at a 5% disadvantage to the GTX-1080 plus it has massively higher memory bandwidth).

        That is more of a middle finger from AMD to Fury owners than anything else.

        What is interesting and probably worthy of a deeper look is the RX480 beating the 1060. Would that be because of VRAM limitations? Is there something in the CoD engine that favors AMD? Etc…

        Cheers!

        It’s a sign of the Fury X only having 4GB of RAM. At the Ultra quality preset, it’s pushing past 4GB even at 1080p. Another bit of evidence in support of this assertion is the gap in performance between the 4GB 470 and the 8GB 480. Typically these cards perform much closer together than they are in this particular instance.

          But then it manages to beat the RX 480 at 1440P and closes the gap to 980 Ti and Maxwell Titan?

            See Voldenuit’s response to chuckula below.

          If it is a sign of Fury X 4GB RAM limit then how does Fury X manged to beat GTX 1070 8GB at 4K resolution albeit by 1 fps and 5K resolution by 2 fps ? 🙂

        guru had some things to say about the variability and consistency of the game:

        [quote<] At one point the result set would be 50 FPS, and on the second similar path and execution 42 FPS and another 56 FPS. This means that the results shown today are indicative, not a precise measurement. Another problem was that some levels average out at say 40 FPS, yet there are a handful of scenes where the framerate will crumble down to say 25 FPS or where running a luxurious 60 FPS all of the sudden. That is the reality of this game engine.[/quote<] It's possible that the discrepancies have something to do with the repeatability of the game as a benchmark, but it's notable that techpowerup had near-identical rankings in the tested cards as g3d did.

    Here’s AMD’s answer: [quote<]New card who dis?[/quote<]

        It’s nice to see that some people keep a sense of humor.
        I wasn’t even hating on AMD… I even said “new card”!

          It was funny regardless.
