Adds support Doom Vulkan API and fix a single issue

AMD has released its new Radeon Software 16.7.2 drivers which add support for Vulkan API in Bethesda's Doom game as well as fixing problems with Restore Factory Defaults in Radeon Settings.

Available for Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 OS in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors, the  AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers add support for Bethesda's latest Vulkan API patch in the Doom game which allows performance enhancements via support for Async Compute and Shader Intrinsics.


The new Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.2 drivers also fix a problem with the Restore Factory Defaults option in Radeon Settings which did not revert the "Compatibility Mode" UI toggle to its default "off" state.

There still a few known problems recorded in the new drivers which will be fixed in the next release, but it seems that AMD's driver team has been on its toes lately, delivering fixes and game ready drivers in a timely fashion.

As always, you can find the new Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.2 drivers over at AMD's support page where you can check out the full release notes as well.
