AMD Release Radeon Crimson 16.3.2 WHQL Driver With Oculus Rift Support
Samuel Wan / 3 years ago
With the Oculus Rift launching now, both AMD and Nvidia have released new drivers to ensure compatibility with the VR headset. Nvidia has released their GeForce driver 364.72 and AMD has responded with their first WHQL driver since the end of 2015, Radeon Crimson 16.3.2. This is the third driver to be released in March and just 10 days since the last one. In addition to Oculus Rift support and WHQL status, there are also a number of other fixes.
First off, fellow VR headset HTC Vive is also getting supported with the new driver. To power these VR headsets, the Radeon Pro Duo is also being supported after launching earlier in the month. Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture and Hitman are also getting updated Crossfire profiles for DX11. Some notables fixes are to FFXIV and XCOM2 and the Fury series will no longer suffer corruption after long idle times.
In terms of known issues, the list remains as long as before, with most of them relating to Crossfire bugs. The AMD Gaming Evolved in-game overlay will still crash some games when enabled. Hopefully, these issues will be resolved shortly in a future update. This continues AMD’s streak of quick driver releases with several a month. You can find the full release notes here.
