AMD has rolled out a new Crimson ReLive 17.11.3 hotfix driver to address crashing issues related to their Radeon RX Vega GPUs. There is no mention of any gains in performance, though AMD outlined a list of several other known issues that it is working on.
According to the release notes, the Radeon 17.11.3 hotfix is aimed at an intermittent crash issue that may be experienced on some Radeon RX Vega series graphics products. The company did not provide additional details on the issue, but it seems that the crashes are random.
Apart from a fix for Vega crashes, there isn’t anything the driver has to offer. Here’s a list of known issues as detailed in the release notes:
- Some desktop productivity apps may experience latency when dragging or moving windows.
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege may experience an application hang when breaching walls with grenades or explosives.
- Rise of the Tomb Raider™ may experience an intermittent application hang during gameplay.
- A random system hang may be experienced after extended periods of use on system configurations using 12 GPU’s for compute workloads.
- The GPU Workload feature may cause a system hang when switching to Compute while AMD CrossFire is enabled. A workaround is to disable AMD CrossFire before switching the toggle to Compute workloads.
- Resizing the Radeon Settings window may cause the user interface to stutter or exhibit corruption temporarily.
- Unstable Radeon WattMan profiles may not be restored to default after a system hang.
- OverWatch™ may experience a random or intermittent hang on some system configurations. Disabling Radeon ReLive as a temporary workaround may resolve the issue.
This hotfix follows the Crimson Relive 17.11.2 released a couple of week ago, which brought optimizations for Star Wars Battlefront 2. It also introduced fixes for a bunch of bugs, including the green corruption issues when using secondary extended displays.
