Rainbow Six Siege causes Drivers 17.12.1 to crash


Rainbow Six Siege causes my 17.12.1 drivers to crash. This happens randomly during gameplay and only with this game. I am running on Windows 10 pro with all updates installed. My graphics card is a R9290x-DC2. I am not overclocking the card. Any Advice you guys have?

Do you have the latest Rainbow Six Patch 4.2 which claims to fix the problem of AMD drivers crashing the game?

Operation White Noise - Mid-Season Reinforcements | Rainbow Six® Siege Game News & Updates | Ubisoft...

This from the above mentioned link Patch Notes:


FIXED – Too much smoke appears when shooting with some weapons.

FIXED – Installing the latest graphics driver for AMD will cause a crash when explosives are triggered.

FIXED – Concussion and Sonic Burst effect applies to replays if applied after the start of replay.

Yes. My game has the most current updates.


Uninstall with DDU and try the WHQL 17.7.2 version here. Detail

ASUS TUF X570 wifi, AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, ASRock 6700XT Challenger, Antec Truepower new 700w. 32GB

I will report back after some testing.


Try installing the newest driver that fixed DX9 games from crashing. It might also resolve your problem. Download the Full set from Here: Desktop

Does not work. Still crashes.

With LOD settings = LOW instead of MID/HIGH, it happens not all the time, but only about every thrid game...
