👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅03.02.2016 16:24:12

AMD have released the latest Beta update for their Radeon Software Crimson Edition driver package, adding optimisations for the latest AAA game - Rise of the Tomb Raider. Technically classed as a 'Hotfix' on AMD's driver download page, it also includes a selection of fixes for a variety of system configurations and older titles. Chief among these are improvements to AMD FreeSync operation and an HDMI audio bug when resuming from sleep.

The Crimson Edition 16.1.1 Hotfix package is available for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 in both 32-bit and 64-bit executables, but is currently not WHQL-certified. Official GPU support is limited to AMD 7000-series and newer GPUs (i.e. those utilising GCN architecture).
