New Radeon Crimson Drivers

AMD now offers new Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3 drivers for AMD graphics cards, which include support for the new HITMAN game, as well as per-game display scaling (thanks Mashiki). Here's word:

Well these drivers fix the full screen flicker in OGL from the last beta release. Haven't run across any other problems either.

Know what I would like to see from AMD, or Nvidia or anyone that often releases drivers like this.

Take a "Tic - Toc" approach. In one version add the new stuff and in alternating versions fix everything that was wrong in the previous version, without adding anything including bugs.

That way I, along with other sane people, can just download the version that likely won't mess things up and ignore these "game ready", or whatever, versions.

That would require reason and common sense. Something severely lacking today pretty much everywhere.
I have a nifty blue line!

I usually just wait until they change something I care about, or it's been 6 months since I've updated. I'm actually happy AMD is putting out more frequent updates lately. It kind of sucked when they were only releasing once a quarter (not counting beta releases).

Really strange that there is no mention of The Division in the driver. I know some of my friends were waiting on a new driver just for that game. Very odd they don't mention it.

Strange? Are you new to AMD drivers? Not nearly enough months have passed.
The developers are heavily involved with Nvidia...so it's normal to see AMD taking some time to release a new driver for the game.
