Version 16.5.2 of AMD’s Radeon Software Crimson Edition graphics package has just been released. This update adds support for some recent game releases, such as Battleborn and the reboot of Doom. Of course, the update also adds fixes that should help improve performance in older releases as well.
Another somewhat recent game – the reboot of the popular Hitman franchise – also will see some major improvements with this update. Before 16.5.2, the game’s models for characters and environments would often render too dark when AMD Crossfire was enabled. This update fixes all of that, thankfully.
There’s plenty of other fixes for Crossfire related issues in other games, too. Both League of Legends and Star Wars: Battlefront players will be glad to see that there’s far fewer issues when using Crossfire while playing their games.
Additionally, the software’s user interface has been enhanced with some slight tweaks. The majority of these changes affect the program’s settings area.
While AMD Crimson had some major issues when it was first introduced, often causing graphics cards to overheat, AMD has been working hard on updating it since then. The current state of the software is a far cry from its disastrous launch 6 months ago.
