AMD Releases 17.1.2 Crimson ReLive Edition Drivers

/ 6 years ago


Even with the new year, AMD has not let up with their driver releases. Following up on 17.1.1 earlier in the month, we now have the latest optional 17.1.2 drivers from AMD. In addition to the usual host of bug fixes, we also have the headline game support. This time, we have support being added for Conan Exiles Beta and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Beta. Given AMD’s record, I expect both will be supported at launch as well.

In terms of fixed issues, there are a number of them but only two I feel are worth calling out. With Radeon WattMan, changing the memory frequency won’t be buggy anymore when more than one display is connected. The other is a fix to random runtime crashes in the atidxx64.dll.

  • Changing memory clocks with Radeon WattMan with more than one display connected may cause memory clocks to intermittently become stuck at their minimum setting or switch between min and max ranges intermittently causing display flickering.
  • Diablo®III May experience smoke or lighting effects may appear corrupted when using DirectX®9 API.
  • Some applications may experience an intermittent or random runtime crash in atidxx64.dll.
  • FIFA®17 may experience a black screen on launch when using Hybrid Graphics or AMD PowerXpress system configurations.
  • Watch_Dogs®2 may experience an intermittent game crash after extended periods of play on some Radeon RX 300 series products.
  • Paragon™ may experience flickering in profile or store preview pages after changing graphics settings when using Multi GPU.
  • Forza Horizon 3 may experience a crash or application hang with the Blizzard Mountain DLC on some select Radeon GCN products.

For the known issues list, it is largely the same as 17.1.1. Interestingly, the issues “Shadow Warrior 2 may experience an application hang when launched with Multi GPU enabled” and “AMD Multi GPU configurations may experience a system hang or reboot during install when using tiled MST 4K or 5K displays” have both been removed. As you might notice, neither were in the fixed issues list so we have no idea if they were fixed or not. You can find the drivers and release notes here.
