AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.2: Workload Toggle and 12x GPU Compute Support

In time for today’s launch of Destiny 2, yesterday AMD has released Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.2, bringing driver support to Destiny 2, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (10/27), Assassin’s Creed: Origins (10/27), and support for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. For select cards, 17.10.2 also includes support for Windows 10 configurations of up to 12 compute-focused GPUs and a 'GPU Workload' toggle for a compute workload optimized mode.

For the Vulkan-powered Wolfenstein II, the developer, MachineGames, has worked closely with AMD and stated that Vulkan uses Vega-specific features in this game, although exact details were not mentioned. 

As a quick note on the recent Fall Creators Update, 17.10.2 appears to supersede last week’s Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition Beta for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, although it is not clear if the Mixed Reality issues were resolved.
