Driver Timeout 21.6.2 release notes does not even mention this. What?

Yeah I have reported multiple times to AMD and I´m sure I'm not alone.
Every since 21.4.1 a strange message which cause every game to crash back to main screen, the screen itself takes a couple of seconds to come back.
When I check the event manager the very same message and sometimes the graphics card doesn't even come to live.
Reload the the graphics driver does Not work.
I have found a temp. solution: go into Device manager and manually activate the Graphics card again and then restart O/S.

Ok. The report from Adrenalin s/w  is "Graphics Driver Timeout" What does this even mean?

me too. "driver timeout".. with 6700xt stock settings. w10 21h1. previous 5700xt no problems, but that was older drivers. then 3070 , ok, and last graphic before 6700xt was 2080ti . then clean install of win10. drivers 21.5.x optional. rebar ON. games ok, most played game is division2 high detail DX12. then tryed 21.6.x and crashing like crazy in Division2 . tryed 21.6.1 whql, same situation. 21.6.2 opt.. no change. returned to 21.5.1 whql, crashing . now i am using 21.4.1 and after hour one crash. i am very very dissapointed. i think that i return the 6700xt . amd wake up and do something.
