looks like they have done a fantastic job, lets hope they can keep it up and turn around the public opinion.

'Radeon Software Crimson'? It's just awkward to say, the lack of grammar and eloquence has immediately cheapened their efforts, as always. Surely anyone in the English speaking world would change that to Radeon Crimson Software before presenting their new idea to anyone remotely resembling management. Will AMD ever manage to finish one thing as well as they started it before they die. It even looks quite good, and tasteful, with some very practical features but.... uhhh AMD, I can't watch.

To someone never bother to read, of course it sounds awkward or cheap.

Radeon Software is the name of the package and Crimson being the name of the major revision which is getting change as they release more updates and we might see Radeon Software Scarlet Edition or Radeon Software Ruby Edition in the future and that definitely makes more sense than changing the name of the software suite for every release.

I've had no issues playing fallout on these drivers, and I have had the driver over the weekend for testing. It is likely the beta update, which is a bit weird.
