AMD has released their Radeon Software 17.10.2 GPU driver

AMD's Readon Technologies Group has released their new Radeon Software 17.10.2 driver, which offers up to a 50% performance uplift in Destiny 2, a Gaming/Compute toggle in Radeon Software and support for up to 12 separate AMD GPUs on a single system.  

Please note that the 50% performance gain in Destiny can be seen when using the game's highest preset, which includes the game's stupidly demanding MSAA option. At this time it is unknown if this gain only applies to the game's highest preset or if the performance gain is game-wide.

Compute Support

Radeon Software now supports compute workloads for up to 12 installed Radeon RX 400, Radeon RX 500 or Radeon RX Vega series graphics products on Windows®10 system configurations.


Fixed Issues

- Radeon Software may not appear in the uninstall options under "Apps and Features" on Windows® operating systems after a Radeon Software upgrade.
- Minor corruption may appear in PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS™ in some game locations when using Ultra graphics settings in game.
- Radeon Wattman may fail to apply user adjusted voltage values on certain configurations.
- AMD XConnect™ Technology enabled system configurations may not be detected when plugged in or connected to a system after being previously unplugged during system sleep or hibernation.
- Hearts of Iron™ IV may experience a crash or system hang during some scenario gameplay.
- Radeon Settings gaming tab may not automatically populate games detected on the users system.

Known Issues

- A random system hang may be experienced after extended periods of use on system configurations using 12 GPU's for compute workloads.
- Assassin's Creed™: Origins may experience an intermittent application or system hang when playing on Windows®7 system configurations.
- The GPU Workload feature may cause a system hang when switching to Compute while AMD CrossFire is enabled. A workaround is to disable AMD CrossFire before switching the toggle to Compute workloads.
- Resizing the Radeon Settings window may cause the user interface to stutter or exhibit corruption temporarily.

- Radeon WattMan reset and restore factory default options may not reset graphics or memory clocks and unstable Radeon WattMan profiles may not be restored to default after a system hang.
- OverWatch™ may experience a random or intermittent hang on some system configurations. Disabling Radeon ReLive as a temporary workaround may resolve the issue.
- When recording with Radeon ReLive on Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products GPU usage and clocks may remain in high states. A workaround is to disable and then re-enable Radeon ReLive.
