AMD isn’t discouraged by NVIDIA’s ascension in the marketplace, continuing to improve its products to compete. Its partnership with Sulon proves that it still has ambition, ideas and the workforce necessary to make things happen. Another piece of proof is the latest update for the Crimson Edition of the Radeon Software.

The Radeon Software Crimson Edition is a revolutionary graphics software with redesigned functionality, new features, and other improvements that offer a great user experience. AMD has released a new update for it, which includes version 16.20.1013 of a driver optimized for Overwatch, Total War: Warhammer, while Vulkan received a beta update that’s available as a DLC for the latest Dota 2 update.

These issues have been addressed

– Fallout 4, which experienced some stuttering in AMD Crossfire technology mode;
– Radeon Settings, which was removed from the system if it was open when the Radeon Software installer was launched;
– Radeon Settings “Additional Settings” option, which failed to launch;
– Quad AMD Crossfire technology configurations, where users were unable to re-enable AMD Crossfire mode when they were toggling the AMD Crossfire option in the “Gaming” tab from on to off;
– Texture flickering in Tom Clancy’s The Division appeared when running on Crossfire configurations;
– Instabilities, when pairing Intel Skull Canyon NUC (NUC6i7KYK) with AMD external graphics solutions using AMD XConnect Technology;
– Random BSOD, when unplugging for AMD XConnect Technology.

However, the company hasn’t fixed all the issues and some of them have affected the beta version of Forza Motorsport 6 Apex game. Here are a few of the known problems:

– If the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled, some titles fail to launch or they crash;
– Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will show brightness flickering if players use AMD FreeSync technology;
– While uninstallation, Catalyst Install Manager can’t detect the display driver.
