If you own an AMD graphics card then we have some good news for you. AMD has just made available their new graphics drivers. Which provides performance improvements over the previous build known as the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.4. While the new drivers are also designed to boost performance for AMD hardware on the new PREY game. The new Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.5.1 are up for downloading right now, which also enables multi-GPU support for PREY.
Some draw backs that users might face on the new Crimson drivers includes:
- Fixed an issue that may sometimes cause the error message “1603” during uninstall.
- Radeon Settings may sometimes fail to update through the auto Radeon Software update feature.
- Forza Horizon 3™ may experience minor graphics corruption in some game maps
- Sid Meier’s Civilization™ VI may experience an application crash when using Hybrid Graphics system configurations and windowed game mode
- Radeon WattMan may fail to apply settings on some Radeon R9 390 series graphics products.
- Added switchable graphics support for Unigine™ Superposition for XConnect and Hybrid Graphics.
Aside from that a bunch of AMD graphics cards were also tested on the new Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.5.1 drivers. Where everything look good and runs smooth and perfect on AMD hardware across the board. You should also know that the new PREY game from Bethesda is an AMD optimized game. Which should also make the game run better on AMD hardware compared to its Nvidia counterpart.
Surprisingly the new Prey game from Bethesda is a highly optimized game. Where the game does not only look good but performance well as well. Users should expect to run the game with 100FPS on average. On mid-tier cards like the RX 480 and the GTX 1060 at 1080P. This also means that lower end cards should have no problem running the game at 60FPS on the same resolution.
