AMD has released a new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the AMD Radeon Crimson ReLive 17.11.2 driver offers optimal performance in Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Naturally, this driver also fixes some bugs and issues that have been reported by the red team’s community.

Going into more details, this new driver fixes two Radeon ReLive and two Radeon WattMan issues. In addition, it resolves a crash or hang when enabling/disabling AMD CrossFire mode on some select Radeon HD 7000 series graphics products. Furthermore, this driver fixes some green corruption issues when using secondary extended displays.

Do note that Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products may experience a system hang on installation in Multi GPU system configurations.
