17.6.2. seems to have fixed the stability issues that were happening on 17.6.1. I've been using it for the last couple days and nothing has happened.
Freesync and ReLive (and I still actually think Power Effeciency setting) are still are a little funky causing framerate hitches and things. I've just turned all those things all off for now and everything is smooth! But those feature really need to get looked into because they are really nice features but when causing framerate or frametimings to bounce up and down, they aren't really useful, especially since that's what Freesync is suppose to prevent from happening.
Oh there is a new driver, i think i will wait till i am sure it's safe... i been having this issue on Dragon Ball Xenoverse after a little while of playing the game would show a green screen with no text and the whole PC would just crash.
After all the issues i had with the 17.6.1 package not installing i started having this green screen issue, for now on i will only update after reading some posts of new drivers being safe after a couple weeks.
I do not know but, for the card of Asus Radeon RX 470 Strix, if you are using APP and on OC mode , try to roll-back to normal mode(down the clock).
Since the card only with a 6 pin power connector.
