You mean Vulkan. I had the beta driver installed before so I couldn't really tell if it was a leftover from that or not, and they haven't updated Radeon Settings to report the version number.

Added SteamVR multi-GPU support? Nice! Will have to test that later.

Package Contents
The AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Driver contains the following:

  • AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Driver Version 15.301.1901

I know what u mean So I think it's a big pass, however I think im gona redo the process with these + Vulkan drivers as you did because I suffered from the display corruption after long idle which is annoying as it force me to restart both machines and they are 24/7 machines so its kinda annoying.
