AMD Update RSCE Drivers To 16.9.2, Optimizes For Forza Horizon 3

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅22.09.2016 13:09:19

AMD aren't letting up on the new driver releases and this week are issuing the latest update to Radeon Software Crimson Edition. Strictly a Beta, RSCE 16.9.2 is intended as a day-zero update specifically optimising for Microsoft's Forza Horizon 3 driving sim but also includes bug fixes and a new CrossFire profile for Dreadnought

In a new twist Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 also arrives without the Gaming Evolved app by Raptr. It's not clear if this signals a slow depreciation of support for the app begun as AMD's alternative to NVIDIA's GeForce Experience, but the immediate consequence is an installer that's roughly 30MB smaller.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 is available for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7/8.1 and 10, and is compatible with GPUs and APUs based on GCN graphics architecture. Forza Horizon 3 will be available on Sept 27th from the Microsoft Store.
