The latest WHQL-signed Radeon Software Crimson Edition was released today, bring the drivers up to version 16.10.1. These are the same drivers which launched earlier this month, but of course, they’re signed now and not a beta update for those who love to wait till drivers are a little more proven/stable.

What is Asynchronous Spacewarp?

“ASW compares previously rendered frames, detects the motion between them, and extrapolates the position of scene components to create a new synthetic frame. Using this technology, synthetic frames will accurately approximate the fully-rendered frames they’re designed to replace.” – AMD
