Most driver updates these days are released in concert with high-profile games, arriving with support for said titles along with a few bug-fixes for good measure. The new Radeon driver 17.1.2 does things a little differently and comes with support for beta versions of upcoming titles. For this driver release, AMD added support for Conan: Exiles and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands in their respective beta incarnations.
In addition to that game-specific support, there are a few notable bug fixes. This update takes care of corrupted visual effects in Diablo III running on DirectX 9 and a flickering issue affecting Paragon in a multi-GPU setup. Crashes and black screens in FIFA 17, Forza Horizon 3, and Watch Dogs 2 were also resolved.
Meanwhile, AMD continues to work on issues with flickering in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and World of Warcraft that sometimes occur at first boot on systems running FreeSync. Rare crash issues occuring in setups using both AMD's FreeSync tech and borderless-fullscreen mode are still being looked into. A few card-specific issues persist, too. Radeon RX 400-series cards "may experience scaling issues for some applications when using the display-scaling feature," and some RX 480 users may see their mouse cursors go a little funky.
The Radeon 17.1.2 update is available for download right now.
