New driver install

Hi,

For some months, AMD started to release normal graphic driver and hotfix. When an hotfix driver is released, should I uninstall the old driver first (with "AMD Clean Uninstall Utility")?

Technically, because it is a hotfix you should simply install it, but I saw some people saying that you should uninstall the old driver.

If you answer is to simply install the hotfix, should I uninstall my current driver, install "Crimson Edition 16.3.2" and then apply "Crimson Edition 16.4.1 Hotfix"? Because I think I have installed only "Crimson Edition 16.4.1 Hotfix".

Thank you!

I always uninstall them with DDU, then install the hotfix.

Re: New driver install

I don't think I had problems with the driver itself. Maybe one time with "Additional Settings", but I solved that problem by reinstalling the driver.

I'm just curios how it's normal to install an hotfix driver. But thank you KINGFISH for telling me a way to "clean install".

I'll wait for a few more answers, or for one from AMD before deciding what is better.

Re: New driver install

Nobody from AMD can tell me which option is better?
