    Why do I have to click through five+ different pages to get to the damn Radeon driver page now? Seriously, who designed this stuff? :3eyes:

    I googled Radeon Drivers and it took me directly to the page to download them. What's the problem?

    Yeah I prefer to go directly to the driver page.
    http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-art...mson-ReLive-Edition-17.2.1-Release-Notes.aspx

    Alternatively there's this.
    http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

    And you click on either 32 or 64 bit but that takes you to a separate page where you can either download the drivers or click to the release notes which would take you to the above.

    Re-check once a week or so if they've changed the driver date (Feb 18th for 17.2.1, Feb 22nd for the slightly buggy re-release with WHQL and now Feb 28th for the current non-buggy WHQL.) or just check this forum to see if the new driver is out yet and then download that instead. :D
    (Driver updates are pretty quick on these forums at least for GPU drivers whether it's a full new driver, beta, hotfix or some other development thing.)

    EDIT:
    Nvidia does something similar though the GeForce.com forums usually have direct links and again these forums are very quick with new driver updates too. :)

    Meh, they're back at their old web scheme. I prefer the previous page also where you can point at drivers and see it appear instantly in your browser.

    "edit" just browse to the drivers once and save it as a hyperlink.

    This direct link on my bookmarks still works, assuming you're going for W10 x64.

    2 clicks here, I think you have issues...

    That being said, it's annoying having to scroll down for the 7900 series when there's heaps of cards that should be in the same category..
