AMD updates Radeon Software Crimson Edition with Quantum Break support

AMD has pushed out another driver update to its Radeon Software Crimson Edition suite, bringing along support for Quantum Break just ahead of the game's official release. AMD says the new drivers, which clock in at version 16.4.1, also bring support for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, along with solving a couple of lingering issues.

Here's the breakdown of what's new, along with the known issues in this update:

  • Hitman™ may experience flickering when played in DirectX® 11 mode using high game shadow settings.

Known Issues
