AMD Crimson Drivers can kill Graphics Cards

AMD has recently released new drivers called Crimson to replace the Catalyst Control Center. It was supposed to bring a considerable performance boost, but after a few days numerous users have reported bugs and glitches that damaged their GPUs, some even getting killed.

Apparently, the Crimson Drivers are forcing the fan speed of certain Graphics Cards to only 20%, causing them to overheat and die. 

Meanwhile, AMD has responded to this issue and has released a fix that can be found on their website.


Hello there. I've been a gamer for as long as i can remember and I'll keep on playing. I am studying at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology from UPB, but in the meanwhile I will keep playing video games, especially RPGs. My other passions are computer hardware and playing guitar.
