AMD today released Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.1 drivers. Released for Windows 10 and Windows 7, these beta drivers add optimization for “Middle Earth: Shadow of War,” and “Evil Within 2.” The optimization includes Radeon Chill profiles, which tell the GPU exactly when to downclock, for the best thermals and power-usage, without sacrificing performance. The drivers also fix bezel-compensation application on mixed-mode Eyefinity setups, and rare flickering issues noticed with “DiRT 4″ on certain multi-GPU setups.

NVIDIA today released the GeForce 387.92 Game Ready Graphics Drivers, which presents a more comprehensive package than most Game Ready drivers. This time, the changes aren’t mostly limited to new, upcoming games support, though that’s still part of the package. On that front, you can count on these drivers being optimized for the upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2, as well as Forza Motorsport 7, on which NVIDIA expects anywhere between 15% and 25% performance improvement (which should help improve NVIDIA’s situation). On the VR space, this driver package brings the optimal experience for 4A Games’ Artika.1 (if you recognize the studios’ name, it’s probably because they’re the ones behind the Metro game series.

Also interesting, however, are the feature updates that come with this driver package. Fast Sync is now supported for SLI configurations, though Maxwell architecture users should steer clear of 4K resolution, which isn’t supported for this feature. There’s also NVIDIA GameStream support for HDR under Windows 10. On the renderer side, we see added support for OpenGL 4.61, as well as for DirectX Intermediate Language (DXIL). This includes full support for DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.0 ( for features such as Wavemath), and the DirectX Shader Compiler, though it’s only supported on NVIDIA Kepler and later GPUs. There are also some improvements to full-screen Vulkan applications, though this particular change may cause more errors while leaving and entering full-screen mode (Alt-Tab).

However, for those who don’t want to use Beta-state software on their computers, AMD has now released a properly-signed WHQL driver.

AMD announced today they are bringing multi-GPU support for RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56 with their upcoming Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.2 drivers. This CrossFire support is for two GPUs only, so it appears AMD is going on the same path as NVIDIA in not having official support for three or more GPUs, which by itself is a point of discussion. Note that these drivers are not out yet, and this announcement serves to alert the user base to what is coming up.

AMD has been on a roll when it comes to consistent driver updates, be it beta or WHQL certified, and with the ninth month of the year comes the release of their Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.1 drivers. Given that the last beta driver brought with it game support already, this is more of the usual with bug fixes recognized from last time but also note this has a few bugs of its own discovered during the process. One of the more noteworthy bugs that were fixed with this update is the unresponsiveness of an RX Vega-driven system when woken up from sleep and then playing back videos, which was noted by multiple end users only recently, so it was a quick fix on AMD’s part and credit must be given there.

inno3d-geforce-gtx-1080-ti-ichill-blackBy Matthew Lambert @ Bit-Tech

We’ve seen quite a few third-party GTX 1080 Ti cards at this point, and all of them have a few things in common: chart-topping performance, very high price tags, and bulky air-coolers. The Inno3D GTX 1080 Ti iChill Black, however, only ticks the first two of those boxes. Instead of a whopping great big air-cooler (which the company is no stranger to), Inno3D has opted for a hybrid cooling system with a closed-loop all-in-one liquid-cooler strapped to the GPU and a more traditional air-cooling setup for the other components.
