AMD publie les Radeon Crimson Edition 16.7.1, quoi de neuf ?

AMD l’avait promis et malgré un petit retard les pilotes Radeon Crimson 16.7.1 sont disponibles en téléchargement. Ils apportent pas mal de chose dont une correction autour de la répartition de la consommation électrique de la Radeon RX 480.

Carte graphique AMD Radeon RX 480

Ces Radeon Crimson 16.7.1 sont censés améliorer la distribution d’énergie de la Radeon RX 480 avec un rééquilibre de la demande entre le port PCIe et le connecteur d’alimentation PCIe 6 pins. Ceci vise la carte de référence.

Radeon Crimson 16.7.1, bugs et performance

A cela s’ajoute des améliorations de performance de l’architecture Polaris. AMD annonce une hausse de 3% maximum selon les jeux et l’arrivée d’un mode « Compatibilité », désactivé par défaut, dans les paramètres, afin de réduire la consommation d’énergie. A ce sujet, AMD préconise les réglages suivants pour bénéficier des meilleures performances :

“Check that“Power efficiency” toggle is set to DISABLED in Radeon Software settings (Gaming / Global settings / Power Efficiency = OFF). This will ensure best performance as well as best power efficiency at this time.”

Des corrections de bugs sont aussi proposées citons le souci de corruption des vidéos avec une définition supérieur à du Full HD sous Doom,  le problème de stuttering sous GTA 5 avec la RX 480 et un affichage problématique sous Hitman et l’API DirectX 12. Il y a aussi un correctif autour de la technologie FreeSync.

Ces pilotes s’accompagnent malheureusement de bugs connus touchant le « Gaming Evolved » si le mode superposition est activé et les écrans noirs sous Total War: Warhammer.

Radeon Crimson 16.7.1, recommandation pour l’installation

Ces Radeon Crimson 16.7.1 sont disponibles en version 32 et 64-bit. Ils s’adressent aux environnements Windows 7, 8.1 et 10.  Il est recommandé de désinstaller toute version antérieure avant de procéder à l’installation.

Cela passe par le téléchargement de l’archive, son extraction et son exécution. Il suffit de suivre les étapes à l’écran puis une fois l’opération terminée de redémarrer son PC afin que les changements prennent effet.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 - Release Notes

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 - Release Notes

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 16.7.1 Highlights

– The Radeon RX 480’s power distribution has been improved for AMD reference boards, lowering the current drawn from the PCIe bus.
– A new “compatibility mode” UI toggle has been made available in the Global Settings menu of Radeon Settings. This option is designed to reduce total power with minimal performance impact if end users experience any further issues. This toggle is “off” by default.
– Performance improvements for the Polaris architecture that yield performance uplifts in popular game titles of up to 3% [1]. These optimizations are designed to improve the performance of the Radeon RX 480, and should substantially offset the performance impact for users who choose to activate the “compatibility” toggle.

Fixed Issues:

– Radeon RX 480 limited PCI-E Bandwidth (PCI-E bandwidth is now at the correct speed on the Radeon RX 480) with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
– Minor stuttering no longer occurs in Grand Theft Auto V on Radeon RX 480 with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
– Video corruption will not be observed in DOOM with resolutions above 1920×1080 with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
– Hitman graphical corruption no longer occurs when the game is set to use DirectX12 API and using zoom with weapons with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
– Display will not exhibit minor flicker on Radeon RX 480 when Freesync is enabled on a games launch or exit with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.

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 DirectX12 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.

– Battlefield 4 may experience crashes when using Mantle. As a work around users are suggested to switch to DirectX11.
– 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.
