A new set of AMD drivers released today should see the end of Nier: Automata’s ‘White Screen’ bug on their hardware. ReLive 17.5.2 addresses the “random hang or application crash” in that game, and brings additional support to Prey.
Over on the AMD subreddit there’s a little bit of further insight into the long-running Nier: Automata problem. An AMD employee posting there says “sometimes when an issue seems like it’s so simple [it] can turn out to be incredibly complicated to resolve, taking longer than expected time to discover, resolve, and verify the root cause.” So it sounds like this one was a tricky problem to figure out.
As well as a boost for Prey on 580 cards, 17.5.2 brings a fix for long loading and launch times in Forza Horizon 3. Read on for more details about this release.
