Radeon 17.9.3 drivers are ready for Total War: Warhammer II

Dang, it sure feels like it was just short while ago that AMD released a pack of Radeon drivers—oh wait, it was. The red team's software developers can't take a break, though. AMD just let loose the Radeon 17.9.3 drivers with support for Total War: Warhammer II and Forza Motorsport 7.

Look at my sword, my sword is amazing.

This driver release is a small one, but it's still more than welcome. Along with support for the forementioned titles, there are a couple bug fixes. RX Vega owners furiously looking for the Enhanced Sync drop-down option in Radeon Settings will finally find it. Those lucky ones with multi-card RX Vega setups on Ryzen systems shouldn't see the cards' idle clock bumped up when ReLive is running. Finally, F1 2017 players with multiple RX 580 cards should see the game actually run faster than with a single card now.

The known issues list includes a few items. WattMan may not apply user-specified voltages in some situations, and Radeon Settings may not immediately populate its game profiles list after it's been installed. Overwatch might hang on some systems, too, and display scaling remains non-functional on some DirectX 11 applications.

It's possible that the Radeon Settings app has already let you know about the new release. If that's not the case, then head on to AMD's download page to grab the new drivers and perhaps peruse the release notes.

    Guy saw Temple of Doom and was like yo, double the horns and bling that mother out to match my 11 foot sword.

    funny when your out of games for a while (years) and then you read, “total war: warhammer 2” and your like, WOW… that came out… wait and its a sequel! two of my favorite game franchises blended…

    why is that guy dressed as a matador?

    Yup. Won’t accept manual WattMan voltage changes.

      Wait a year and it should be fixed by then.

        Was working in 17.9.1

          Mine accepts but resets on every shut-down or reboot. Worthless. RX 470 bought soon after release.

    I don’t know why that dude is so impressed with his sword when he’s wearing such an awesome hat.

      Shoulder pads! Don’t forget the shoulder pads!

      …or shoulder plates rather.

    Tip: you may want to write down any custom Wattman settings before you install the new driver.

      Can’t you export settings the settings? I mean sure, manually doing it is probably safer but it would be a lot helpful if they add the option to save/export settings.

        You could always just take a screenshot.

          If the settings available are little and are not spread across multiple pages, tabs and sections, sure screenshots are feasible but if they’re not, then it’s really cumbersome to do so. All of these might be moot though cause I’ve never used Wattman. I’m just contemplating the benefit of having the option to save settings.

            Right click on your desktop and select AMD Radeon Settings from the list.
            Click on the Gaming button at the top left.
            Click on the Global Settings button.
            Click on the Global WattMan button at the top right.
            Below the instructions, drag the slider from the default “Balanced” setting to “Custom”.
            The first object below the slider is a real-time chart of GPU activity, CPU clock speed, memory clock speed, temperature and fan rpm.
            The second object is the GPU frequency and voltage adjustment for the top two of the eight power states (0-7).
            The third object has memory speed and voltage adjustment for the highest of the four power states (0-3).
            The last row in WattMan has both the fan speed settings (minimum and maximum) and the temperature and power limit controls. I’ve lowered the target temperature from the default of 75 °C (at the expense of slightly increased noise under load). I’ve been experimenting with the power limit, both up and down.

            I haven’t experimented with the power limit, but I’ve experimented with voltages on my 290X. According to GPU-Z, I’ve seen a 50W reduction in GPU power in Witcher 3.
