AMD has just unleashed a new set of Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers, with the new 16.6.1 set of drivers including some optimizations for both Mirror's Edge Catalyst and Paragon. Not only that, but we have a new CrossFire driver for Dark Souls 3, too. You can download the new RSCE 16.6.1 drivers here.




As for the release notes, here's what to expect from Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.6.1:


Support for:

  • Mirror's Edge Catalyst™
  • Paragon™


New AMD Crossfire profile available for:

  • Dark Souls III™


Fixed Issues

  • Display flickering or corruption may be experienced when playing videos in a web browser.
  • DiRT Rally™ may experience poor performance on some tracks with rainy/night scenes.
  • The HDMI® display scaling options in Radeon Settings may be missing when the display is set to an interlaced resolution.

Known Issues
