AMD's software teams have been busy lately. Between Radeon driver updates large and small, microcode updates for the Ryzen platform, assisting game developers with optimization for the Zen architecture, and writing new power plans for Windows, work doesn't seem to let up for AMD coders. Today's news on the company's software front is the release of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.2, adding support for yesterday's Windows 10 Creators Update.
The release notes don't offer much insight into exactly what "Creators Update support" means. The notes go on to describe various fixes, including corrections to SteamVR Asynchronous Reprojection support and Battlefield 1 multi-GPU support in DirectX 11. The update also reportedly eliminates flickering in Radeon ReLive in certain Windows 7 configurations, fixes Radeon Settings' tendency to forget settings after a reboot, and restores missing Windows Security popups on Hybrid Graphics setups.
Not all currently known bugs are squashed, including some WattMan problems with Radeon R9 390 cards, crashes when enabling and disabling CrossFire, and some minor FreeSync tomfoolery. The ReLive software in particular has some remaining issues with Windows 10 Creators Updates' XBOX DVR application, kinks with AMD APUs, and recording face-melting Microsoft Office action.
The release notes are available here for gerbils that want to know all the nitty-gritty details. The page also includes a detailed hardware compatibility list and download links for the new driver for various 32- and 64-bit Windows releases going back to Windows 7, with the exception of 32-bit Windows 8.1.
