AMD Radeon outs the new 16.11.2 Hotfix

Yes, AMD released the Crimson Edition 16.11.1 yesterday!!

Weird as it looks, AMD released the new 16.11.2 driver just a day after releasing the .1 version. The .2 version driver increases AMD Shader cache storage limit. According to its release notes, the updated shader cache limit allows more shaders for extremely demanding games. There are no other optimizations.

The list of known issues for the 16.11.2 driver are as follows:

  • A few game titles may fail to launch, experience performance issues or crash if the third party application “Raptr” has its game overlay enabled. A workaround is to disable the overlay if this is experienced.
  • DOTA™2 may experience a crash when launched using the Vulkan™ API on some Graphics Core Next products.
  • Battlefield™1 may experience an intermittent application specific error message popup citing graphics device removal
  • Flickering may be experienced while playing Overwatch™ in the main menu or viewing character models using AMD CrossFire mode.
  • H.264 content playback may experience playback issues on internet browsers with hardware acceleration when also running gaming applications or content.
  • FIFA 17™ may experience an application hang or black screen on launch for some select Hybrid Graphics or AMD PowerXpress mobile configurations.
  • H.264 content may experience blocky corruption when streaming using P2P content players on some Radeon RX 400 series graphics products.

The earlier 16.11.1 driver was released for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered.
