AMD Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.3 Brings Support For RX 500 Series GPUs

AMD has released Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.3 for its Radeon series GPUs although the driver update doesn’t target a specific game, like the 17.3.2 did for Mass Effect Andromeda.

According to the release notes on the official support website, the Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.3 adds support for the recently released Windows 10 Creators Update as well as the upcoming Radeon RX 500 series cards.

The Radeon 500 series, while not available in stores yet, has been announced and confirmed to be a refresh of the 400 series, with the RX 580 taking over from the RX 480 with other GPUs from the series doing the same.

Different companies like PoweColor RedDevil, MSI and Gigabyte’s AUROS have been touting their RX 500 series GPUs, mainly the flagship RX 580 which is once again on the Polaris architecture instead of Vega.

Digital Foundry took it upon themselves to review the new GPU series, well at least the RX 580 and the results are pretty much the same as what can be expected from a refresh.

As is the case with pretty much any software update, there are some known issues with the new Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.3 update although nothing damaging has been reported yet.

AMD has mentioned that the update can cause issues in games like Counter Strike Global Offensive when paired with FreeSync. A permanent fix should be on the way but there are also temporary workarounds like restarting the games.

The Radeon ReLive suite itself can cause issues, mostly related to capturing. Known issues so far include conflict with the Xbox DVR application in which case it is recommended to disable the DVR capturing until a fix is in place.

Similarly, the software can also cause trouble when recording or streaming if the user changes tasks by using ALT+TAB.
