AMD announces serious bug in Radeon Software Crimson Edition

About a week ago AMD released a brand new type of video card drivers called Radeon Software Crimson Edition, which combines graphics drivers, software programs, user interfaces and other video card utilities into one package for the first time ever. Unfortunately the new software has been released with a serious problem so if you use it – then keep on reading!

Apparently Radeon Software Crimson Edition comes with a software bug that either makes the fan of your video card spin at 100 per cent all the time or spin at 10-20 per cent no matter the load. This leads to video card overheating and possibly damage. No damaged video cards have been reported as of now but the bug is there.

AMD has acknowledged the issue and is working on a fix that must be released today so if you are an AMD video card owner and you run Radeon Software Crimson Edition – head to AMD’s web site here to download the fix.
