  • Comments pretty much covered the gist but here's an answer anyway... AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition is the new Control Panel software for AMD graphics cards. It's basically a UI upgrade from the Catalyst Control Center (CCC) and comes with a good amount of bug fixes.

    In the comments you asked if you should uninstall the CCC before installing Crimson and that would be a good idea. To be on the safe side, create a restore point before uninstalling CCC and then go for it.
