Following up on the start of the Windows 10 Creators Update rollout this week, AMD has released rolled out new graphics drivers to ensure compatibility with Microsoft's latest release. According to the Crimson ReLive version 17.4.2 release notes (via PCGamer), this new release also fixes a number of issues and includes some known issues to be aware of as well.

Here's a look at the new features, fixes, and known issues for AMD's Crimson ReLive version 17.4.2 drivers:

  • Initial support for Windows®10 Creators Update.

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. vApplication 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.

Workarounds include exiting and restarting the application or task switching (alt+tab) in and out of the game to fix the issue.

Known Issues for Radeon ReLive:

  • The XBOX™ DVR application may cause conflicts with Radeon ReLive, users are suggested to disable XBOX™ DVR if Radeon ReLive is experiencing issues.

  • It should support WDDM2.2 now
  • On my Pavilion 17 (f-001sm) with latest radeon software and Creators Update, i have constantly laging when try to open Start menu, when in background opened Edge with some video.
  • That's Intel's drivers, not AMD's. Try downloading the latest Intel drivers, even though they still don't support RS2 and the lagging will still be there, if slightly reduced. Still nowhere near RS1 fluidity.
  • What's about HDR, which AMD cards support HDR on CU ?
  • My r9 390 crashes while browsing or running other low performance tasks. I still use an old driver that allows me to downgrade the gpu in these situations and run normally while gaming. Can I do the same using Wattman?
  • There is something else wrong in your pc... The driver works just fine on my 290 card
