AMD Releases New Drivers for Battlefield 1, Civilization 6


AMD has released a new set of its Radeon Crimson Edition drivers to bring support in for newly released games, including Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2 and Civilization 6.

The driver version is 16.10.2 and is optimized for new games releasing this week and last week’s big releases. Other titles being updated include Serious Sam VR and Eagle Flight VR. If you’re running more than one AMD card, you can get additional benefits from running Civilization VI in CrossFire thanks to a newly added profile.
