New AMD CrossFire profile added for DirectX® 11:

Fixed Issues

  • A random blank or colored screen may be experienced intermittently on some Radeon RX 400 series products while gaming.

 

Known Issues

  • A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay".
