    it's a standalone package who can be installed after DDU or we need to overwrite another "regular" driver?

    my guess would be the later, the installer checks the driver version number and only overwrites older drivers.

    thats how they've all worked so far.

    Thanks for letting us know. I'm downloading it now to see if there are any other interesting things than Vulkan. With Vulkan drivers betas we already got new and improved OpenCL libraries which are now part of standard driver package.

    Edit:
    This driver has:
    amdxc32.dll=SignatureAttributes.PETrust
    amdxc64.dll=SignatureAttributes.PETrust
    And libraries are present. (After expansion) They have same version number and size as ones in 16.3 package, but differ on binary level.

    It is very unfortunate, but it seems that issue with low OpenCL utilization which AMD solved with Vulkan beta drivers is back with this one even while this one has 2.0.6 version of OpenCL (same as those fixed).

    Something somewhere went wrong, maybe compiler flag.

    Not a single vulkan demo works for me, just starts up with black screen and then disappears again.

    I installed these right over 16.3.1. Installer reported a new version for both drivers and interface. So far I haven't experienced any weird behaviour, apart from minor graphical corruption in the Crimson interface (something I've never noticed before), but I think it disappeared after a couple re-boots.
