AMD has released new drivers for their GPU’s, Radeon Crimson Edition 16.9.2 adds support for Forza Horizon 3, fixes several RX 400 related issues, and adds a DX11 Crossfire profile for “Dreadnought”.

NVIDIA already released their Game Ready drivers for Microsoft’s racer, and early impressions are quite solid.

The drivers also fixes the small amounts of stutter while playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in CrossFire mode under DX11, and Ashes of the Singularity crashes while playing with DX12 and Multi-GPU enabled.
