Crimsion Relive 17.1.1

Recently AMD released a new version of GPU drivers package, Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.1.1 with support for Capcom’s next survival horror game, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.1.1 has multiple updates. If you have AMD R9 380 and experiences crashes in Dishonored 2, the new driver was the solution for this crash, and Paragon multi-GPU configurations should no longer experience flickering screen problems. 

The new driver also includes a warning message for Windows 7 users with a basic theme blue screen error that occurres when audio drivers load on some AMD XConnect configurations, and also a problem that caused some users' displays to go black after installing Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 16.12.1 and newer.

AMD Also solved an issue that caused Solidworks to "terminate on unplug" when using AMD XConnect. Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.1.1 should no longer have that problem.

AMD has officially fixed the following problems.

  • Dishonored 2 may experience an application crash or hang on some Radeon R9 380 configurations.
  • Radeon ReLive may show an improper warning popup message when using Windows 7 basic themes.
  • AMD XConnect Technology configurations may experience a blue screen system hang when audio drivers load.
  • Solidworks will no longer terminate on unplug using AMD XConnect Technology configurations.
  • Some system configurations may experience a black screen after installing Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Editions 16.12.1 and later.
  • Display corruption or TDR may be experienced after applications wake up from a display timeout.
  • Paragon may experience flickering in Multi GPU with DirectX 11.
  • Radeon ReLive may crash or become unresponsive when toggling Multi GPU with Desktop Recording and/or Instant Replay enabled.

This time AMD wasn't ashamed of pointing out their issues, instead this time they fixed them with great confidence. The problems which were fixed were very short in their list, many were related to FreeSync multi-GPU configurations. Some applications had bugs with FreeSync; they don't usually work well with Borderless Fullscreen window, which really disappointed AMD users because it was one of the new features of Crimson ReLive.

AMD Is also aware of the Radeon ReLive capture software, but these issues are minor and many users aren't complaining about it. For a full list of known issues, see the driver release notes.

The new AMD AMD Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.1.1 are out you can download it now from AMD's website. The new driver has support for multiple GPU'S like AMD’s RX series, R9 Fury, R9 Nano, R9 and R7 200-series and 300-series, and HD 7700 through HD 8900 GPUs.
