    wow nice!

    AMD on time with unreleased Games !

    Very wow !

    Fixed Issues:
    The AMD Crossfire™ technology mode options in Radeon Settings may not take effect on Origin or Uplay applications.
    I effectively had to add the application .exe for every Uplay/Origin games for the Crimson settings to take effect o_O

    P.S. the package I downloaded from AMD says June the 2nd... so it's old already!

    That's a bit harsh. You could find a better point, like:


    Battlefield™ 4 may experience crashes when using Mantle. As a work around users are suggested to switch to DirectX®11.

    Haha. Yes, sadly that suggestion has been valid for every Frostbite 3 based games ever since the Windows 10 release. :p

    -> If you have problems with our revolutionary superior technology which is too great and futuristic to support in our present days, the solution is to go back to the useless old thing which... just works... :)

    Ever since I used DDU for the first time, I've had some issues when installing drivers. Previously, the setup would install everything except the actual drivers (meaning I would still get Radeon Settings and all that jazz). I would then manually install the drivers by going through Device Manager and using the "update" option. This worked.

    With this driver, using the Setup gives me "Detection Driver Error. Contact AMD for assistance." (a different error than usual) and trying to manually install the drivers give me a message saying that my current drivers (not even AMD, but Microsoft Basic Display Adapter) are more recent, so it doesn't install them.

    Edit2: Even after reinstalling 16.3.2, I still cannot install 16.6.1. Windows still tells me my current drivers are the best ones available and won't install them.


    Soooooo I'm a bit screwed. I'll try installing 16.3.2 and installing the new ones over them.

    Edit: This is the "normal" error I get: "Driver Install: Windows® version does not support this operation"
    And yes, I am indeed picking the right version before downloading. It installs manually fine.

    Anyone else getting a detection driver error trying to install this package? Tried it via upgrade, tried it clean with DDU, but I get the error everytime. 16.5.3 installs just fine.
