AMD Updates Radeon Software Crimson Edition To 15.11.1beta

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅01.12.2015 18:19:07

As pledged over the weekend AMD have today issued a new version of the Radeon Software Crimson Edition driver application to deal with the widely reported Overdrive fan bug. Alongside this fix they've also resolved a number of other pressing issues in various games and system configurations to boot.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the update this version is listed as 15.11.1beta rather than a full release, and as a result many of those who really should be running it due to the critical fixes will overlook it because of the beta label. For the sake of users a little less familiar with AMD's driver progression it will hopefully graduate to a full release in the near future.

You can download Radeon Software Crimson Edition 15.11.1 (which is different from Catalyst 15.11.1) from this AMD support page.

The update changelog as it pertains specifically to RSCE is as follows.
