AMD Releases the Radeon Crimson Relive 17.5.1 Beta Drivers

Not to let itself be outshined by arch-rival NVIDIA, AMD today released a new driver suite that introduces support for the impending release of Arkane Studios' Prey. A totally new IP in an era of sequels and re-releases, which has been paired - even if only so slightly - with AMD's own Vega teaser campaign, Prey promises to offer a mix of Bioshock and System Shock, with Arkane's own peculiar blend of game mechanics and art direction. Go on ahead fighting the invasion - I'll be joining you shortly.

These drivers promise an up to 4.7% performance improvement measured on Radeon RX 580 8GB graphics when compared to Radeon Software Crimson ReLive edition 17.4.4, as well as multi GPU profile support. As always, you can grab these right here on your favorite hardware site on the universe. Just follow the link below, and catch some more details like fixed and current issues after the break.

Fixed Issues
  • Fixed an issue that may sometimes cause the error message "1603" during uninstall.
  • Radeon Settings may sometimes fail to update through the auto Radeon Software update feature.
  • Forza Horizon 3 may experience minor graphics corruption in some game maps
  • Sid Meier's Civilization VI may experience an application crash when using Hybrid Graphics system configurations and windowed game mode
  • Radeon WattMan may fail to apply settings on some Radeon R9 390 series graphics products.

Known Issues

  • 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 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 experience recording or streaming issues when task switching using ALT+TAB.

It's really bad that AMD removed display settings like brightness, color and other correction stuff that was there before in ccc. Really miss it. It would have been really nice to have those back in radion software.

I am having issues installing these on bios mod 480s code 43 after installing ie not enabling gpu.
Even rolling back just the display driver doesn't help ,auto update pulls a 2016 driver which does work but......
Anyone else having issues with bios adjusted 480/580?

If you rename the executable to atikmdag-patcher-bios.exe it should only patch the signature check and keep everything else intact.

I have the update the M$ released the mgpu update 5/2 and started you needed to have at least 17.44. It didn't work for me so I was hoping that the next driver update from amd would address that. NVIDIA latest driver included it, come on AMD.
