    They used beta version of that.
    You can see if you care to read the review.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    The ones in this news article are the same - they're also a 'hotfix' rather than a WHQL release.

    In that case if they were beta, has much changed since the beta version was used?

    Re: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.6.2 released

    At the top of the release notes, it says this new software is only for the RX480.
    Yet, further down the page it says this software is for a large number of cards.
    Which is it?
    I'm running my ASUS ARES 3 right now and don't know if I should just ignore this update, or immediately install it.
    Nvidia says to always run their latest drivers in whatever card you own. Why doesn't Radeon?
