AMD releases Windows 10 Creators Update Crimson ReLive, beta Radeon drivers

Kit McDonald

With the Windows 10 Creators Update live and rolling out, it’s safe to say that this week will be filled with updates for hardware and software suppliers. AMD, as usual, is right on the ball with the Creators Update by releasing a new of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive driver.

As PC Gamer pointed out, this initial software version 17.4.2 takes advantage of the Creators Update’s gaming features. Otherwise, the patch notes didn’t say more than increasing stability for the Windows update and listing off a few fixed/known issues.

Fixed Issues

  • SteamVR Asynchronous Reprojection feature may not function or enable correctly on supported hardware.
  • Battlefield™1 may experience poor scaling in Multi GPU mode using DirectX®11 API.
  • Radeon ReLive may experience flickering when recording with an extended display connected on Windows®7 system configurations.
  • Application profiles in Radeon Settings may fail to retain after system log off or reboot for some gaming applications.
  • Windows® Security popup may be experienced after install and reboot on some Hybrid Graphics system configurations.

Known Issues

  • Radeon WattMan may fail to apply settings on some Radeon R9 390 series graphics products.
  • Radeon Settings may crash on switching Windows® user after toggling AMD CrossFire™ technology mode.
  • A small amount of apps may still experience issues with Borderless Fullscreen mode and AMD FreeSync™ technology if other applications or game launchers are running on the primary screen in the background.
  • Counter-Strike™: Global Offensive and World of Warcraft™ may experience flickering or performance issues the first time the game is launched on a system boot with AMD FreeSync™ technology enabled. Workarounds include exiting and restarting the application or task switching (alt+tab) in and out of the game to fix the issue.

But it isn’t the only AMD software that got an update for the new Windows 10. Radeon Pro, including the FirePro series, is the professional software created to empower content creation with the highest standards of AMD support. Like Crimson ReLive, it too was bumped up to 17.4.2 yesterday, but only into the beta. The release notes include support for Windows 10 Creators Update as well as support for 8K monitors.

Both driver downloads can be found on the corresponding AMD support pages for Radeon Software Crimson ReLive and Radeon Pro.
