no specific mention to R9 users issues, i don't know if it's safe to try them
I can see AMD dropping GCN 1.0 at some point in the near future since it's getting a bit old now and missing some stuff but GCN 1.1 such as the 290 / 390 will probably be around for a while yet.
(Though it could still be years really, guessing GCN might be a bit more backwards compatible with it's architecture?)
Though yeah far as "ReLive" goes it seems earlier GCN GPU models are running into a variety of issues with both 16.12.1 and 16.12.2 now.
(Probably going to need some further tweaking on AMD's side though as said in the 16.12.2 thread now AMD is going to have to sort out ReLive specific issues too in addition to the Crimson interface and actual GPU specific issues and then there's Wattman too.)
(And the endless game compatibility black magic and ritualistic sacrificing needed for all that to work...multi-GPU support especially heh unfortunate but probably impossible to avoid.)
it's ok... BUT
if you literrally write in the changelog that now wattman supports all the R9 cards and generally amd relive drivers supports 100% R9 cards we suppose that a BIG time was spent by the testers finding bugs and after some time they say ok let's distribute them to all the world
how is it possible that after TEN MINUTES many users came here writing so many issues? i just installed the drivers, tryed 3 games (10 minutes in total) found that 2 of 3 are running just bad at all, back to 16.11.3
