AMD Crimson Edition 16.4.2 Fixes The Division Crossfire Flickering, Offers XConnect Support
AMD has rolled out their latest Radeon Software Crimson Edition, version 16.4.2, which offers new Crossfire profiles for Need For Speed and Elite Dangerous, as well as fixes a number of known issues.
One problem people have been eagerly waiting a solution for, and is now resolved in the latest patch, is the flicking issue found in The Division when playing with a pair of AMD cards in Crossfire mode.
In addition to this, there’s a fix for slower than expected fan speeds on a small subset of AMD Radeon R9 380 card, and the removal of power efficiency toggle in Radeon Settings that was showing up for some unsupported products.
The patch also offers full XConnect support for Thunderbolt 3 eGFX enclosures configured for Radeon R9 Fury, Nano and 300-series GPUs. Further, the version 16.4.2 addresses corruption and flickering in Hitman and Fallout 4 when using AMD Crossfire technology mode.
However, there are still some known issues on AMD’s to-do list, including launch or crash with a few game titles if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled, and the absence of HDMI Scaling options in Radeon Settings on some system configurations.
Also, users of the recently announced AMD Radeon Pro Duo may experience a system crash or hang after resuming from sleep or hibernate.
