AMD's Latest Driver Adds Support For 'Dishonored 2'

If you have an AMD GPU and plan to play Dishonored 2 on PC later this week, be sure to download the latest driver, which is Radeon Software Crimson Edition version 16.11.3.

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 removalFlickering may be experience 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.

    There is mistake in this article. The "Known Issues" that are pasted are from version 16.11.2 and not the 16.11.3

    Actually the "Known Issues" in 16.11.3 are the same as 16.11.2.

    my bad the web page was directing me to the release notes for 16.9.2 and it did it twice in a row when I double checked it.

    EDIT: found the issue. On the "Release Notes" tab on AMD's web page it has the release notes for 16.9.2 and not the 16.11.3. When clicking on the release notes under the "Description" you get the actual release notes for the 16.11.3 release. Hopefully you can understand where the confusion comes in. They have 2 different release notes for the same release.
