AMD Radeon Driver Update: AMD Releases ReLive 17.3.1 Driver With ‘Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ Support; Latest Driver Update Offer Major Bug Fixes
AMD has recently dropped an updated version of its Radeon Driver into a 17.3.1 package, which offers specific optimizations for the military open-world co-op game "Ghost Recon: Wildlands" by Ubisoft.
According to PC Gamer, the new Crimson ReLive 17.3.1 driver was released a day after the launch of "Ghost Recon: Wildlands," which will offer support for the open world shooter. AMD claims that the drive update also improves performance by six percent when measured on Radeon RX 480s as compared to ReLive 17.2.1.
The said update might not quite give a significant performance gain, owing to the six-percent bump on the driver, although the latest package should be used by players for the Ghost Recon: Wildlands for it offers multi-GPU profile for the open world game, VR-Zone reported.
Apart from the latest driver's performance increase, it offers bug fixes for a slew of in-game issues in Battlefield, For Honor, Counter Strike, among others.
The fixed issues include the following:
- Battlefield 1 may experience flickering textures or terrain when returning to game after performing a task switch.
- For Honor may experience flickering or corruption on character models when highlighting them in menus.
- For Honor may experience texture flickering in Multi GPU enabled system configurations.
