    Except the creator of CRU says its not a bug in his software. The drivers aren't using the EDID overrides properly. Coincidence considering they added a custom resolution option in relive? Seems exactly like how they changed some of how overclocking works too.

    Just asking for a query, is anyone running perfectly fine on 17.2.1 and using HWInfo + Riva to see OSD ?

    Got my 480 yesterday and fresh installed to 17.2.1 and in Division and Heaven/Valley Benchmarks (and in game Division) I get the White scree freeze/system hang, requiring a hard reset.
    Are the 17.2.1 drivers as buggy as I'm reading or is it some OSD issue, would like a consensus why I test it.
    Is there a driver recommendation I should rollback to while AMD (if buggy driver release) fixes this.

    @HyeVltg3, using that combo here (17.2.1, HWInfo64 5.44 and RTSS 6.6.0) no such issues with OSD. Both GTA5 and Need for Speed.

    - edit -
    Tried Heaven benchmark, all good too.

    I've tried out Grim Dawn with "whql-win10-64bit-radeon-software-crimson-relive-17.2.1-feb28".

    No problem here.

    They did not yet fix flickering grass in ESO. I was hoping that that but seems nope. Back to older driver.

    Of course its his software thats the problem.

    The drivers do what they were designed to do.

    Just because his software doesnt work, doesnt make it AMDs problem.

    Hes trying to do something that isnt supported.

    That doesnt make it a bug.

    LOL. Ok, you blame him. But you're wrong. It's not like they didn't have a release that magically caused overclocking problems for people just a couple revisions back too.

    AMD changed something in their OC API which interferes with 3rd party tool communication/functionality.
    Maybe AMD doesn't want certain functionality to be controllable by external tools anymore. Who knows.
    Maybe they're in the progress of renewing the API and it's a step by step thing.
    Who knows.

    You won't be able to do much about it until you're sure about if it's intentionally been changed or if it is something that happened by mistake/inaccurate work.

    im not blaming CRU (or AB), im just saying it isnt AMDs fault if functionality breaks for 3rd party programs. It isnt their job to make sure other peoples programs work.

    With these drivers 17.2.1 whql I did not experience the error of the UVD status since I installed them three days ago, that's very good ...

    Interesting, in a few weeks when I'll be back to the PC with a 7870 I'll try them.

    Call it what you wan't but to some it is a bug.
    When you just flip gpu scaling on and off it fixes the EDID overrides.
    That is a BUG!

    When AMD does not have 21:9 VSR and their custom resolution in Relive is pathetic POS.

    If it was not for CRU, I could not do 80hz on my 21:9 nor 3440x1440 and 3840x1600.

    The 22nd WHQL still has the UVD bug and I am pretty sure the only thing they changed in the 28th one is fixing the digital signature issue, so the latter should also have the bug (I couldn't be bothered installing it).

    Somebody pointed out that if you use AMD's own custom resolution, the setting are correctly applied after reboot without needing to flip the GPU scaling switch. I can confirm this is true. I have, for now, switched from CRU to AMD's tool for OCing my monitor by copy/pasting my settings from CRU and everything seems to work in the exact same manner as they did with CRU. Though it seems I have to keep GPU scaling off at all times for the custom resolutions to show up.

    There is no denying the fact that CRU is much more intelligent and advanced than AMD's tool but AMD's tool seems to work with less hassle right now.

    Ok, so after 4 days of testing the 17.2.1 WHQL release of the drivers I can say that they are better then 17.2.1 Beta and not only bring the certification but also some minor-bug fixes.
    WHQL Relase solve my random black screen blinking display.:thumbup:

    This drivers give me weird issues on some of the Gun-Models in Doom (2016).

    Happens ONLY on Snapmap
    Happens ONLY when using Vulkan Api (don't know if only on Ultra)
    Only sometimes and ONLY SOME of the Gun-Models are "corrupted" for example the heavy machine gun.

    To reprouduce it: Play the Snapmap Caviar (3rd of the featured maps) and select the "Heavy Assault Rifle" (should be key 4 i think).

    Example of Gun Corruption:
