AMD Releases New Radeon Crimson ReLive Drivers for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War and The Evil Within 2

Posted by at 1:47 pm on October 10, 2017

It was only weeks removed from launching GPU drivers optimized for Warhammer II and Forza Motorsport 7, AMD has made available a new Crimson ReLive release, this time with a focus on Middle-earth: Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2 (Nvidia also has new drivers available, with optimizations for both games).

Radeon GPU owners should see the best performance in those two games with Crimson ReLive 17.10.1 installed. The latest driver release also adds Radeon Chill profiles for both games. Radeon Chill is a power-saving feature that basically caps framerates to improve overall power use, lower temps, and improve battery life (where applicable).

The release notes mention a couple of fixed issues. One is the inability to apply bezel compensation in mixed mode Eyefinity, and the other is a bug that was causing some multi-GPU users to see flickering tire graphics in Dirt 4.  “Tire graphics,” meanwhile, simply ensure your vehicle doesn’t appear to be floating in midair as you race. Those have been resolved.

Eyefinity allows AMD-powered graphics cards to stretch a single game, movie, or program across multiple displays for a more immersive experience. Bezel compensation lets you set custom resolutions that make up for each display’s bezel so as not to make things look weird because of the gap between monitors.

One word of caution to multi-GPU users—AMD says your system may hang or crash when upgrading to the latest Crimson ReLive drivers in Windows 7. A workaround is to perform a clean install.

Known Issues Include:

  • Corruption may be experienced in Forza Motorsport 7 on some HDR displays with HDR enabled in game.
  • Unstable Radeon WattMan profiles may not be restored to default after a system hang. A workaround is to launch Radeon WattMan after reboot and restore settings to default.
  • Wattman may fail to apply user adjusted voltage values on certain configurations.
  • Radeon Settings may not populate game profiles after Radeon Software’s initial install.
  • Overwatch may experience a random or intermittent hang on some system configurations.
  • GPU Scaling may fail to work on some DirectX11 applications.
  • Secondary displays may show corruption or green screen when the display/system enters sleep or hibernate with content playing.
  • When recording with Radeon ReLive on Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products GPU usage and clocks may remain in high states. A workaround is to disable and then re-enable Radeon ReLive.
