AMD has released the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.3.1. With this latest graphics driver package there is support for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands. Another driver highlight will appeal to Radeon RX 480 owners, with AMD claiming performance uplifts of up to 6 per cent for owners of these graphics cards.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands was released by Ubisoft today. The game pits you as a 'ghost' in an elite US Special Forces Team, sent behind enemy lines to cause chaos and break up the alliance between a crime cartel and corrupt government. This co-op game is set in some expansive South American 'wildlands'. Many reviews are still in progress but the game has already garnered 'very positive' (82 per cent) user reviews on Steam.
In Ghost Recon Wildlands, AMD users can now also benefit from using multi-GPU setups (DX11). Incidentally, on Friday Nvidia devoted a blog post to GameWorks effects in Ghost Recon Wildlands and published a 4K 60fps video of the game in action. It’s a current free game with select GeForce GTX 1070, GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs, systems and laptops.
Elsewhere in the new AMD driver there are quite a collection of fixed issues. In gaming there are some fixes for Battlefield 1, For Honor, CS:GO, and DOTA 2 wrinkles. In general there are fixes affecting Radeon Settings installs, mouse cursor corruption, WattMan settings, Borderless Fullscreen mode, and AMD FreeSync.
Unfortunately various known issues remain including a couple for the newly supported Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (both are multi-GPU quirks). Sniper Elite 4 also has a couple of known issues; FreeSync isn't playing nicely with the game on some systems, and supersampling can cause image cropping in the game.
For the full rundown of fixed and known issues and direct links to the driver files head on over to the Release Notes. Driver downloads are approx half way down that page. There's no Windows 8.1 32-bit version, for the reasons recently reported.
