AMD Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.6.1 Drivers Released

AMD has released the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.6.1 drivers bringing official multi-GPU profile support for DiRT 4. The Relive Edition 17.6.1 drivers also deliver 30% performance improvement in the rally-based racing game compared to 17.5.2. This is with a Radeon RX 580 8GB when 8xMSAA is enabled. Fans of Bethesda’s shooter Prey also receive a 4% performance improvement, measured using the same RX 580 8GB graphics card.

In addition to game optimization, the update fixes the Virtual Super Resolution failure on some RX 400 and RX 500 graphics cards. The update also finally fixes the stuttering on Mass Effect: Andromeda which affected multi-GPU system configurations.
