Bethesda: Rage AMD Drivers “Were Not Compiled Properly,” Fix Incoming
Folks with AMD GPUs have been experiencing some issues with Rage today, like with screen tearing and corrupted textures and other graphical defects. And Bethesda says it’s AMD’s fault for sending out a broken hotfix in the latest batch of drivers. We spoke with spokespeople from Both Bethesda and AMD, and here’s what they said:
The most recent AMD drivers that include the Rage hotfix were not compiled properly and is the source of some of the problems. AMD is working on putting up a proper version of that driver.
Our driver team is aware of the issue. A fix is expected to go live by end-of-day EST, if not sooner. You can follow our driver program manager on Twitter @CatalystCreator or the @AMDRadeon handle for the latest update.
So take a deep breath. Everything is going to be all right, probably. We’ll let you know when the updated drivers go out.
We’ll be taking a more in-depth look at the PC version of the game later this week.
