Another bug found in AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition

Another bug found in AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition

A few weeks ago AMD introduced its Radeon Software Crimson Edition software package, which included the latest graphics drivers and various utilities, designed for AMD video cards. This was the first major such release by AMD in years and it made big headlines around the world. In addition to this Radeon Software Crimson Edition had the task of improving the public image of AMD video card drivers, which are known for some issues or so hardware enthusiasts claim. Unfortunately shortly after the release of the Radeon Software Crimson Edition, a serious bug was found, which made video card fans to spin slower than usual, leading to GPU overheating. The bug was fixed on November 30 with a special update but sadly a new bug in AMD’s software has just been found.

Users around the world now report that after installing the latest version of Radeon Software Crimson Edition, their video cards now work at lower clock speeds than before. AMD is now looking into the issue and says users should install a beta version of its Catalyst drivers from November 17, 2015 or directly use Catalyst 15.7.1 (WHQL) until the new issue is resolved. It is not clear when a fix will be available but this should happen any time soon.

Sadly, it seems that Radeon Software Crimson Edition will not bring improvements in AMD driver quality as previously expected and thus it will likely keep the public image of AMD drivers as buggy.
