AMD Releases Radeon Crimson 17.9.2 Driver

Following its preview yesterday, AMD’s Radeon Crimson Edition 17.9.2 driver is out now. As revealed already, the driver is notable for introducing RX Vega Multi GPU support. In addition to general mGPU support, the driver features specific mGPU support for Project Cars 2. Of course, this supposes you’re lucky enough to possess not one but two Vega cards. Otherwise, the benefits of the new Radeon Crimson 17.9.2 driver are sparse. However, the driver comes with a host of known issues. These issues include Enhanced Sync problems and WattMan instabilities.
