    Yes, they are the 15.11.1 BETAs WHQL'd, with 2 new fixes added, which are :-

    That Dirt Rally issue of crashing with Xfire and FreeSync must have been going a while, as i get that with the 15.9.1 BETAs. :p

    I haven't had any issues with the Crimson Drivers so far but I don't really mess around with them. As long as everything works ok that's fine by me.

    Well at least the update function in drivers is able now to update drivers to fixed versions and not only to borked WHQL ones.

    I guess the forced power saving functions in Crimson compensate by a large margin the higher power consumption of the settings GUI.

    So we are still waiting for the re-fix, i mean the fix for the Crimson fix.

    :D

    Two years from now "Elite: Dangerous - Poor performance may be experienced in SuperCruise mode" will still be an ongoing issue. Quite funny. Luckily I don't play that game.

    Yup, the 15.12 Crimson Installer comes with the same display driver that was in 15.11.1, unfortunately.

    15.3?

    That will be funny.

    They need to release a time machine for each customer to use updated March drivers.

    15.13 is not an option aswell too bad luck and the year is a month short.

    Yes.

    I hope there is something more to be released in December apart the already provided 15.11.1 Beta (Crimson fix) now "WHQL'ed" as 15.12.

    This fix really need a fix with a shorter know issues list.

    Pretty much what it looks like, I'm on Windows 10 and not 7 and I'm not using the Cnext / CCC's update function so I'll probably not upgrade as any unlisted changes are probably minimal at best and I doubt there's any profile tweaks, basically 15.11.1 WHQL.

    Sadly the list of known issues likely affects the entire "Crimson" series in general and not just 15.11.1 / 15.12 but it's at least good that AMD has recognized these as issues and hopefully come 2016 (Ideally early 2016) they can focus on fixing up the Crimson drivers thoroughly and maybe bring back the missing features and such.
    (But it's probably going to take time so I won't expect any miracles from a January driver if there is one.)

    These drivers are distinctly different to the 30 November hotfix Crimson driver. The file sizes are very noticeably different so there shouldn't really be an argument about whether these are newer or not :). Don't read into the version numbers too much, the same version number in AMD could belong to a different build.

    Something like this occured in the last (or previous?) drivers release.

    The size difference was related to 32 bit drivers version integrated in the same exe or not if i remember correctly.
