AMD and Nvidia rolls out updates for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

Not surprisingly, two of the discrete GPU chipmakers AMD and Nvidia rolled out its optimized driver for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. AMD Radeon’s newly updated Crimson 16.6.1 driver also includes optimization for Unreal Engine based MOBA ‘Paragon’, while Nvidia 368.39 ‘Game Ready’ drivers provides full support for its new GeForce GTX 1070.

AMD’s update is for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and Paragon, while it provides Crossfire profile for Dark Souls III. The following points highlights fixed issues and known issues:

  • DiRT Rally™ may experience poor performance on some tracks with rainy/night scenes.
  • The HDMI® display scaling options in Radeon Settings may be missing when the display is set to an interlaced resolution.
  • The AMD Crossfire™ technology mode options in Radeon Settings may not take effect on Origin or Uplay applications.
  • Fallout™ 4 may experience flickering in AMD Crossfire™ technology mode for some game textures.
  • Flickering on Oculus Rift™ headsets may be experienced when multiple displays are connected with differing resolutions.
  • Radeon Settings additional settings page may fail to open after performing a Windows Update and then installing the latest Radeon Software Crimson Edition.

Nvidia also included a crossfire profile for Dark Souls III. According to their release note, the optimized driver is for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and Edge of Nowhere. It contains updated SLI profiles for Catalyst and for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Homefront: The Revolution, Witcher 3 and Total War: Warhammer.

However under its Windows 10 issues list, it shows that Total War: WARHAMMER still needs an SLI profile. It also has certain issue of corruption when v-sync is enabled in-game. Performance drop is observed in Street Fighter V on 4K SLI systems when the game is paused and played. Nvidia pointed out that with its GTX 970, you can play Mirror’s Edge on 1080p with high settings, 1440p on ultra with GTX 980 Ti and 1440p hyper with GTX 1080.
