AMD Releases Software Crimson Edition 16.1.1 Driver



/ 3 years ago

AMD

AMD’s Crimson driver package is a complete overhaul of the Catalyst Control Center and incorporates various improvements via a modernized user-interface. It really is a huge step forward and helps AMD to provide a good alternative to GeForce Experience. One of the criticisms about AMD revolves around the slow driver update cycle. Although, it has improved in recent months and the company has just released the latest 16.1.1 driver. This includes performance enhancements for Rise of the Tomb Raider and a Crossfire profile to properly use multi-GPU configurations. Additionally, AMD added a Crossfire profile for Fallout 4, which is well overdue. Here is a complete listing of the driver’s changelog:
