RX 580 - Driver Timeout Error on any driver newer than 21.2.3

Hello everyone!

I'm having an issue with all drivers after 21.2.3 where I'm getting driver timeout errors randomly while playing games. The issue is most noticeable in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, where the game crashes every few minutes or simply crashes at startup.

I've tried removing my driver using DDU in safemode and then installing the latest version 21.4.1 as well with factory settings, but the issue remains. All driver before 21.2.3 seem to be working fine, for example 20.11.3 works great.

The problem is that I use my PC for emulation a lot and most emu programs do require the latest version of the drivers to work properly.
Furthermore, I would like to be able to use the latest drivers available for my hardware, especially with all the new features being added in the 21.4.1 version.

I'm wondering if this is something other users have experienced and if anyone has any tips on how I could resolve this, other than just going back to the old drivers?

I'm using an XFX RX 580 (8GB), alongside Ryzen 7 3700X and a MSI B450 Tomahawk Max motherboard and 16 gigs of RAM.

Thank you so much!

dude I have had a lot of trouble with this. The latest version crashes and hits very badly. Even on youtube there is constant drive timeout error. I hope it gets better. graphics card model = SAPPHIRE RX 580 NITRO S.E 8 GB
