AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.1by Nate Oh on September 7, 2017 7:30 PM EST
This afternoon AMD has released their latest Radeon driver update, Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.1, which is largely focused on bug fixes. This update continues RTG’s rapid cadence of RX Vega post-launch support, marking the 3rd driver release since the launch of Radeon RX Vega64 less than a month ago. This is also the first driver to be released since last Monday’s launch of RX Vega56.
Featuring Driver Version 17.30.1081 (Windows Driver Store Version 22.19.676.0), Radeon Software 17.9.1 addresses two bugs first noted in 17.8.1: RX Vega system hangs when resuming from sleep and attempting to play back video content, and mouse stuttering on certain Radeon RX series products when WattMan or third party GPU information polling programs are running in the background. 17.9.1 also brings further fixes for random corruption in Microsoft productivity applications, which was first addressed for RX Vega cards in 17.8.2.
In addition, AMD has corrected issues where the Radeon Software installer would shrink when installing on certain 4K HDTVs, as well as Radeon Settings hangs or crashes when viewing the Display tab.
In terms of games, AMD has resolved bugs with Moonlight Blade failing to launch on some Radeon GCN series products, as well as Titanfall 2 crashes or hangs on some Radeon GCN1 series products. Lastly, issues with ReLive Toolbar and Instant Replay in Guild Wars 2 were also fixed.
The updated drivers for AMD’s desktop, mobile, and integrated GPUs are available through the Radeon Settings tab or online at the AMD driver download page. More information on this update and further issues can be found in the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.1 release notes.

tipoo - Thursday, September 7, 2017 - linkHad a weird one in 17.8.2 where Office programs like excel would have black lines all over the place. Hope this fixes it.

fade2blac - Friday, September 8, 2017 - linkLast in the list of the fixed issues is "Random corruption may appear in Microsoft desktop productivity applications."
Ro_Ja - Thursday, September 7, 2017 - linkThey still hasn't fixed scaling problems in 17.7.2. I select full panel scaling and i can still see black bars on both sides when i try to use 800x600 on some dx9/dx10 games.
Omoronovo - Friday, September 8, 2017 - linkIs this a new thing you're experiencing? I don't use AMD cards but had a similar issue last year when I upgraded to a new monitor - nothing else had changed about my system, but I was suddenly getting pillar or letterboxing when scaling was set to fit to display in software/display driver.
I had to change the monitor setting for "ratio", which was confusingly set by default to "wide" instead of "original" on my LG panel. Changing to "original" made it work as expected. For what it's worth, it also had another setting called "1:1" which basically ignored the driver scaling completely, which seems like what might be happening with you.
I obviously don't know anything about your setup, and I haven't used an AMD card for a while, but it's worth having a quick look in case something like this is causing the problems.
toffty - Friday, September 8, 2017 - linkYeah sounds like a monitor setting is incorrect. Most monitors now-a-days have scaling that'll keep aspect ratios as a setting.
Ro_Ja - Friday, September 8, 2017 - linkI have this problem on my laptop. I have NVIDIa on mu desktop and it works pretty fine. I'm starting to think it's from the panel of my laptop.
Alexvrb - Sunday, September 10, 2017 - link800 x 600? Boy that really takes me back in time. Are you sure you don't mean DX7? Yeesh. Also I can't stand stretched images so I refuse to alter the aspect ratio for old titles (and TV shows). Black bars all the way! Even with the bars the display area is larger on my monitor than it was when I originally played those games.
fade2blac - Friday, September 8, 2017 - linkDear AMD,
Radeon WattMan has always been generally awkward and unreliable for controlling voltage and frequency on my Sapphire R9 290. I would like better support for Hawaii/Grenada GPU's or a toggle to disable WattMan in favor of other OC software like TriXX and Afterburner.
