    There is no DX12 for Civ6 yet. So they need to patch the game first if that's the case.

    Ugh I saw them tweet this but they never posted the drivers. Maybe they messed up the date for the scheduled tweet.

    I mentioned this driver on one of the AMD Gaming Facebook pages and it got nuked/deleted at some point because I can't see it at all anymore. :eek:

    I think they sent out the tweet/scheduled it too early. The drivers were never on the page and the tweet got deleted.

    It's just like the schedule was way way back before Tmak left.

    Someone got a little too excited it seems.

    Civ6 DX12 so far is misleading isn't it? The release note doesn't say so. Not to mention the game doesn't support it, at least not yet.

    Will they ever fix the overwatch flickering issue? Find out next week for driver 16.11.z. I've been playing in borderless windowed since release.

    Since it isn't mentioned in the notes, you need to report it. The reporting form is at the end of the link to the drivers.

    It's been listed in the known issues section forever, and I reported when the game launched.

    Updated and without issue. BF1 seems smoother on my laptop now.

    Anyone check to see if OpenCL for 32bit was back in the package?
    Anyone with AMD contacts and ask if they'll thrown that into known issues >.<
