Enables multi-GPU on RX Vega series

AMD has released its latest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.2 drivers which bring optimizations for upcoming Project Cars 2 games but, more importantly, enable multi-GPU support for Radeon RX Vega series graphics cards.

According to the release notes, the RSCRE 17.9.2 drivers add optimizations for the Project Cars 2 game, including multi-GPU profile support, as well as up to 2x multi-GPU support for Radeon RX Vega series. It also fixes bugs in Hearts of Iron IV which may experience a system hang when the campaign scenario is launched, and another bug  when the Radeon Software displays a buggy "1603 Error" after installing Radeon Software. It may not affect Radeon Software installation.

While it only supports two-way Crossfire, which is pretty much what Nvidia is officially supporting as well, AMD's own performance slide, published over at, shows some impressive scaling in some games like Far Cry Primal, Metro Last Light Redux, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Sniper Elite 4 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Although no details were provided regarding the actual setup, resolution or graphics settings in these games, an almost 80 percent scaling is quite an impressive feat.

While we do not have two RX Vega graphics cards in our hands, hopefully, some of the usual suspects will test it out soon - or ship some in our direction (joke) so we will have a better clue of the Radeon RX Vega scaling in Crossfire.

As ever, you can find the new Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.2 drivers over at AMD's driver support page and download them for Windows 10 and Windows 7 in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
