Last night, AMD announced that they will update its ambitious new suite Radeon Software Crimson after receiving numerous requests for the resolution bug, incorrect fan rotation speed and some minor tweaks. The most important fix which is needed to resolve quickly is the locked fan RPM at 20%, causing overheats cards, and as such during a hefty gaming session if the GPU isn’t cooled enough, that can cause significant issues. AMD’s sub-reddit is full of posts from users claiming and reporting this.

The AMD Radeon Crimson Software will be updated today


AMD has also listened to a lot of feedback directly from you – left behind on their forums or throughout the social media. This resulted in a prioritized list of fixes that were available in Crimson. Now-resolved issues include:

  • Running a gaming app with video content on a separate display can cause a system hang

  • FreeSync™ sometimes does not work if a gaming app is running in conjunction with content such as YouTube videos

  • Radeon™ 295X2 GPU in Crossfire™ Configuration may not be available to disable/enable in CCC

  • Autodesk Max2016 sometimes hangs on Radeon™ discrete graphics products

  • An extended black screen may be experienced during boot up under Windows® 10 between the Windows® Logo and the Windows® login prompt

  • Diablo 3 crashes in the Act 2 Desolate Sands area of the game

  • GTA V crashes on some AMD Radeon™ R9 390X GPU’s

  • An error may be experienced when installing the latest graphics driver package on some AMD Radeon™ R9 380 series products

  • Ashes of the Singularity™ may crash on some Radeon™ 300 series GPUs or 2GB Memory parts

  • Video playback of MPEG2 video fails with a playback error/error code message
