AMD has released Radeon Crimson Edition 16.10.2 which is optimized for several new games, including Battlefield 1, Civilization VI, and Titanfall 2.

The new Radeon driver also adds support for Eagle Flight VR, and Serious Sam VR early access. Additionally, a Crossfire profile for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI has been added and the Crossfire profile for Battlefield 1 has been updated.
