    Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.3 Highlights

    New AMD CrossFire profile added for DirectX® 11:

    • Deus Ex™: Mankind Divided
    • Battlefield™ 1 Beta
    Fixed Issues

    • A random blank or colored screen may be experienced intermittently on some Radeon RX 400 series products while gaming.
    Known Issues

    • A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay".
    • Radeon Software may intermittently fail to install or hang on some AMD CrossFire configurations. If this happens users can reboot and re-install without issue as a workaround.
    • Grand Theft Auto V™ may experience an application hang on Radeon RX 400 Series Graphics when playing at 4K resolution in story mode.

    The RX 480 8GB with the 16.8.3's work very well... the 16.8.2's had a bug that was only effecting RX line.

    I've now a RX 480/470/460... all of which are running smooth as silk... the 16.9.1 drivers made a big improvement for me in terms of dx11 performance in some games.

    I will however say that i ran into an oddity... likely a fluke.. but when i install the MSI 470.... and then proceeded with the 16.9.1 driver install... it got to the part where the driver was being installed... screen went black and the card went to ultra high gear on the fan speed... i had to do a hard shutdown as a reset didn't fix it. Afterwhich i booted.. installed the drivers again without issue and haven't had a problem at all.
