New AMD Drivers Released for RX 570 and RX 580

AMD has been fairly quick to release a new version of its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive drivers to support the recent launch of the RX 570 and RX 580 video cards. The new drivers also add functionality for the Windows 10 Creators Update. However, that is all that they do.

Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.3 fails to address several known issues for the community. The latest driver update simply adds support for the new family of cards, and does not bring any form of performance boost for users.

In comparison, the previous 17.4.2 driver tackled issues with multi-GPU performance in Battlefield 1 and also improved support for SteamVR asynchronous reprojection. The community was naturally expecting the next driver iteration to address even more issues and bring more improvements.

The following are the current known issues with the Crimson ReLive 17.4.3 software, as stated in the release notes:

Known Issues

  • Radeon WattMan may fail to apply settings on some Radeon R9 390 series graphics products.
  • Radeon Settings may crash on switching Windows user after toggling AMD CrossFire technology mode.
  • A small amount of apps may still experience issues with Borderless Fullscreen mode and AMD FreeSync technology if other applications or game launchers are running on the primary screen in the background.
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and World of Warcraft may experience flickering or performance issues the first time the game is launched on a system boot with AMD FreeSync technology enabled. Workarounds include exiting and restarting the application or task switching (alt+tab) in and out of the game to fix the issue.

Known Issues for Radeon ReLive

  • The Xbox DVR application may cause conflicts with Radeon ReLive, users are suggested to disable Xbox DVR if Radeon ReLive is experiencing issues.
  • Radeon ReLive may fail to install on AMD APU Family products or experience a system hang or failure to record when using the recording feature on AMD APU Family products.
  • Radeon ReLive may intermittently fail to work after performing task switches of applications. A work around is to disable and then enable the feature in Radeon Software.
  • Radeon ReLive may exhibit corruption in recordings when capturing Microsoft Office applications.
  • Radeon ReLive may experience recording or streaming issues when task switching using ALT+TAB.
