AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 - Support for Forza Horizon 3by Daniel Williams on September 22, 2016 12:45 AM EST
As more games approach this fall, we can expect GPU manufacturers to keep updates rolling out so that our cards can be ready for the latest games as they arrive. To that end, AMD's Radeon Software release 16.9.2 - driver Version 16.40.2311 - brings with it a collection of fixes, a new CrossFire profile, and support for Microsoft’s latest racing sim, Forza Horizon 3.
Starting with bug fixes, the latest driver addresses RX 400 series issues, including intermittent mouse cursor corruption, occasional crashes during video playback in Mozilla Firefox, and flickering in Rocket league when running in CrossFire mode. Continuing on with CrossFire related issues, AMD has resolved issues with small amounts of stutter while playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in CrossFire mode under DX11, and the possibility of crashing Ashes of the Singularity while playing with DX12 and Multi-GPU enabled.
Meanwhile the Radeon Settings application has a few more fixes of its own this month. Previously, upgrading from a earlier version of Radeon Software Crimson Edition may have caused user settings in Radeon Settings to reset to defaults, so this has been corrected. As has a Radeon Settings crash under Windows 10 Anniversary Edition.
Finally, as part of this hotfix we will also get a CrossFire profile for the upcoming capital ship combat game Dreadnought, and launch-day support for Forza Horizon 3, the latest racing game to be published by Microsoft Studios. Forza is seeing release next week on Tuesday the 27th, though Ultimate Edition owners will get a head start this Friday.
As always, those interested in reading more or installing the updated hotfix drivers for AMD’s desktop, mobile, and integrated GPUs can find them either under the driver update section in Radeon Settings or on AMDs Radeon Software Crimson Edition download page.

RaichuPls - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkRX480 deep dive when? RX 460/470 reviews?
BrokenCrayons - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkDon't hold your breath. Anandtech's GPU reviews are slower than the GTX 970's last 512MB of video RAM.
JoeyJoJo123 - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkAbsolutely sick burn! +1'd, liked, and subscribed for more pwnage.
powerarmour - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkValve will be getting HL3 ready soon...
In all seriousness, this is a massive letdown for Anandtech since Anand left, about a million smartphone and tablet articles that nobody cares about, news about whatever Intel decide they need coverage for, and yet nothing but a preview for a major PC hardware release.
Manch - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkAnandtech starting to go the way of DT? I hope not. Don't need an individual 13 page review of each and every derivative phone or KB. Maybe save them for a shootout. That will allow time for the deep dive articles we want.
tamalero - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkWhy not? you can filter these reviews easily. Its better to have the content than have nothing at all.
Still, DailyTech went to crap when it went political and started to post completely unrelevant stuff to tech.
powerarmour - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkThis site feels very much like DT at the moment, it may not be intentional but most of the 'articles' now simply seem like advertising and watered down critique.
Manch - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkYeah, I can filter them but it seems like they spend soo much time on these phones and KB reviews that we never see anything on graphics cards or other tech within a reasonable amount of time. I dont care about an (insert chinese knockoff) phone. All those phones could be reviewed under one review. KB, PS, memory too. Same with SSD's. In depth articles should be for unique tech, new architectures, or if a phone is doing something very different then OK sure that. After the initial release of said tech, then later reviews only need to cover the new items. No need to rehash again and again. Content is great but content we want is the point Im making. A lot of us here feel this way. Its been said multiple times to the point when a driver is announced, were asking well what about the review for the product the driver is for that still aint out XX weeks/months later. In depth is great but timeliness counts too. Im OK waiting a couple weeks but come on, this is getting absurd. Ever since Purch bought them, it seems to be sliding down hill. I hope it changes. If it doesnt, it will be sad when anandtech goes away. I go to this site almost Daily.
barleyguy - Thursday, September 22, 2016 - linkI actually like the SSD reviews here, because this site was revolutionary when it comes to SSD reviews. Before Anandtech started testing longevity, performance when full, trim, and random writes, SSD reviews kinda sucked.
I agree with you on everything else though. I'd much rather have video card and processor reviews in a relevant time period than phone reviews. There are plenty of good sites reviewing phones, and I only upgrade my phone when it breaks anyway. Same thing with peripherals like mice and keyboards. I usually don't even click on those reviews.
It really seems like this went from a full time professional journalism site to a hobby, and it's disappointing.
Manch - Friday, September 23, 2016 - linkFair enough. You make a good point. When new controllers and new type of memory sure. ODM rebadge drives that perform the same though, I don't see the need. I want emphasis on the TECH and less on the product.
