AMD's RSCE 16.6.1 Gets You Ready For Mirror's Edge Catalyst

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅07.06.2016 00:11:24

AMD are once again ahead of the curve with their latest driver release, going live one day before an eagerly awaited AAA title is released in the US. The Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.6.1 driver, classed as a hotfix/beta, is specifically intended to provide the best possible support for Mirror's Edge: Catalyst.

Once again the most recent release is specifically non-WHQL, which will be a slight disappointment to system integrators but shouldn't dissuade those with an AMD GPU looking to pick up EA's reboot of the Mirror's Edge franchise. Furthermore RSCE 16.6.1 also brings with it improved support for Paragon, an arena shooter by Epic Games which is currently in Open Beta, and a new AMD Crossfire profile for Dark Souls III.
