AMD's ongoing trend of released Day 0 Beta Drivers for upcoming triple-A game releases continues this week with the unveiling of Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.11.3 Beta. This release specifically targets optimisations for Dishonored 2, the stealth-based FPS from Bethesda that officially releases on November 11th but allows early-access for pre-order customers on Steam.

Alongside support for Dishonored 2 AMD are also implemeting fixes for X-Connect's interaction with Steam and Origin desktop clients. With this patch the applications should no longer force-close when an external GPU connected via X-Connect is disconnected.

As usual the latest drivers can be downloaded from and are available for 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8/8.1 and 10. The specific download page for this release can be found here.
