freezing experienced in DRM-protected video playback
more DRM more suffer for legal paying customers

This is good, but I recommend playing DX9 games or older on Windows 7 instead, much better compatibility. Fallout New Vegas is very crash prone with mods installed, recent update killed NV Stutter Remover, if you have it the game crashes all the time in Windows 10. It becomes impossible to play. With NVSR removed you get tons of stutter, but hey at least the game runs...

That's just normal when settings stop working and Witcher not opens and playing old unimproved games. stutters.
Only Team Fortress works smooth.,Serious Sam Fusion, and some more.
At least 8xEQ works great.
Wanted to buy Doom multiplayer but it will not work. Instead bought all FEAR games for cheap price.

Why are the change logs listed in this article different from the AMD website?

AMD site reads as so:
Resolved Issues
  • OverWatch™ may experience a random or intermittent hang on some system configurations.
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six® Siege may experience an application hang when breaching walls with grenades or explosives.
  • Netflix playback in a browser or via UWP application may experience stutter.
  • After recording with Radeon ReLive GPU usage and clocks may remain in high states.
  • Assassin's Creed®: Origins may experience bright or saturated lighting in cave missions.
  • Mass Effect Andromeda™ may have issues enabling HDR10 on an HDR capable display.
  • Forza™ Horizon 3 may experience corruption on rocks or foliage during gameplay.
  • Halo™ Wars 2 may experience a crash on game launch.
  • Enabling HBCC on Radeon RX Vega in multi GPU system configurations may cause the secondary graphics card to be hidden in Radeon Settings until reboot.
  • Resizing the Radeon Settings window may cause the UI to restart or hang with HBCC enabled.
Known Issues
  • Upgrading Radeon Software with Radeon RX Vega series graphics products in multi GPU on X99 chipsets may cause system instability after reboot.
  • Radeon Settings may experience a hang when enabling AMD CrossFire with three or more graphics products.
  • Performance Metrics Overlay may hang if enabled when cycling display power off and on.
  • Trimming videos may fail to create a thumbnail if the video contains non-English characters.
  • 3x1 display configurations may experience instability during Eyefinity creation or during gaming.
  • The "Reset" function in Radeon Settings for Display, ReLive, and Video may not work as intended when using Radeon Settings in certain regional languages.
  • Radeon WattMan may intermittently fail to load profiles for Radeon RX Vega on the global Radeon Wattman page.
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider™ may experience an intermittent application hang during gameplay.
  • A random system hang may be experienced after extended periods of use on system configurations using 12 GPU's for compute workloads.
