AMD has rolled out its new Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.11.1. The driver is designed to offer performance gains for the RX Vega 64 GPU in Activision’s latest shooter, Call of Duty WW2.
Launched this Friday, World War 2 has earned widespread acclaim from critics. As of the 17.11.1 driver, performance jumped up to 5% on a Radeon RX Vega 64 versus the previous 17.10.3 driver. The increase in performance is based on running Call of Duty WW2 at 2560 x 1440p resolution and it may vary depending on which RX Vega card you’re using.
In addition to this, the Radeon RX Vega 56 now supports AMD XConnect Technology. This will allow Vega 56 GPUs to be placed inside external GPU enclosures, which can then be connected to a laptop via Thunderbolt 3, just like a USB flash drive. At present, support is offered for select eGPU enclosures.
The Crimson ReLive 17.11.1 also brings fixes for a number of issues, including corruption with Anisotropic Filtering (AF) in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and Radeon Settings overlapping text problem in Multi GPU. Below are all the fixed and known issues as mentioned in the release notes:
- Radeon Software may intermittently cause an application crash on limited numbers of DirectX®11 or OpenGL applications on their first run.
- Some gaming or productivity applications may experience a random hang or application crash when performing task switching.
- Radeon WattMan reset and restore factory default options may not reset graphics or memory clocks.
- Oculus™ Dash may experience a random application hang.
- Bezel compensation in mixed mode Eyefinity cannot be applied.
- Radeon Settings may experience overlapping text or corruption in the Multi GPU profiles page.
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon®: Wildlands may experience minor corruption with Anisotropic Filtering (AF) enabled.
- Middle-earth™: Shadow of War™ may experience ghosting or distortion in gameplay on Multi GPU enabled system configurations.
- AMD XConnect™ Technology products may not be detected/enabled on reconnection if previously disconnected during system sleep
- A limited number of system devices such as printers may be removed during Radeon Software uninstallation.
- Some desktop productivity apps may experience latency when dragging or moving windows.
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege may experience an application hang when breaching walls with grenades or explosives.
- Rise of the Tomb Raider™ may experience an intermittent application hang during gameplay.
- A random system hang may be experienced after extended periods of use on system configurations using 12 GPU’s for compute workloads.
- The GPU Workload feature may cause a system hang when switching to Compute while AMD CrossFire is enabled. A workaround is to disable AMD CrossFire before switching the toggle to Compute workloads.
- Resizing the Radeon Settings window may cause the user interface to stutter or exhibit corruption temporarily.
- Unstable Radeon WattMan profiles may not be restored to default after a system hang.
- OverWatch™ may experience a random or intermittent hang on some system configurations. Disabling Radeon ReLive as a temporary workaround may resolve the issue.
