A new AMD Crimson driver set, 17.11.1, is out today, coinciding with the release of Call of Duty: WW2. As it happens, the drivers offer additional support for that very game. At least if you have a Vega64 GPU, which is claiming a 5% performance boost over the previous driver set.
17.11.1 also contains a few fixes, but no, Overwatch fans, sadly the display device being lost is still living in “known issues” rather than the “solved” category. AMD suggests disabling ReLive as a possible fix.
However, if you were waiting for the AF setting to be fixed in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, then these may be the drivers for you. Likewise, if you were running Shadow of War with a multi-GPU set-up and experiencing ‘ghosting’ (pretty sure they don’t mean Celebrimbor), that should be fixed too.
Here’s the full summary of what AMD Crimson driver 17.11.1 supports, fixes, and has yet to solve.
