AMD Release Radeon Software 16.7.2 WHQL Driver

 

AMD has released a new WHQL version of their 16.7.2 GPU driver. This driver addressed some of the minor issues present in their 16.7.1 driver. 

 

AMD Release Radeon Software 16.7.2 Hotfix Driver

 

Radeon Software Crimson Edition is AMD's revolutionary new graphics software that delivers redesigned functionality, supercharged graphics performance, remarkable new features, and innovation that redefines the overall user experience. Every Radeon Software release strives to deliver new features, better performance and stability improvements.

 

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.2 Highlights

  • The "compatibility mode" UI toggle was designed to reduce total power with minimal performance impact on AMD Radeon™ RX480 reference boards and has been made available to users in the Global Settings menu of Radeon Settings (first introduced in the previous Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 driver). This toggle is in "off" by default.

Fixed Issues

  • In the previous Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 driver the "Restore Factory Defaults" option under Preferences of Radeon Settings Software would not set the "Compatibility Mode" UI toggle to its default "OFF" value.  This is fixed in the Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.2 driver. The "Restore Factory Defaults" options resets all Radeon Settings to their factory default values.

Known Issues

  • A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay".
  • Radeon™ Pro Duo may experience a black screen in Total War™: Warhammer with the games API set to DirectX®12 and V-Sync enabled.
  • DiRT™ Rally may experience flickering terrain in some races when the advanced blending option is enabled in the games settings page.
  • Some Overdrive settings may not appear in Radeon Settings for Radeon™ Fury X when in AMD Crossfire mode.
  • Dota™2 may crash when using the Vulkan™ API and the user changes resolutions or quality settings.
  • Battlefield™ 4 may experience crashes when using Mantle. As a work around users are suggested to switch to DirectX®11.
  • Need for Speed™ may experience flickering on some light sources in AMD Crossfire mode.
  • Frame Rate Target Control gaming profiles may fail to enable for some games.
  • Radeon Wattman may retain settings of an overclock after it has failed. If you have failed an overclock with a system hang or reboot make sure to use the "Reset" option in the Radeon WattMan settings page when the system has rebooted.
  • Low frame rate or stutter may be experienced Wolfenstein®: The Old Blood™ on Radeon™ RX 480.
  • Assassin's Creed® Syndicate may experience a game crash or hang when in game settings are set to high or greater.
  • Disabling AMD Crossfire mode on Radeon™ RX 480 may disable the device in Windows® Device Manager. A workaround is to reboot the system to re-enable the device.

It did work, I know because I used to play on mantle with the 7950. But it's useless anyways, game is so easy to run that it doesn't even matter. And you should really upgrade if possible from the 7970 if that's what you are using right now, you would have even less of a need for Mantle.Quote

Tbh the 7970 is still a very capable card, especially for 1080p.

I wouldnt bother upgrade if not need be simply cause thid gen or GPUs are not worth it. You are paying a premium for basically the same architecture on a smaller process.

Would wait for the next one. At bare minimum if money matters.Quote

That's how it works. A refined architecture on a smaller node that comes with more power efficiency and performance. And you are paying a premium for Nvidia's cards, whereas the 480 is holding it's MSRP value pretty well(at least in the states). It's worth the upgradeQuote
