I had this happen once before, have been using the 16.12.2 update without Relive and just yesterday I was informed of a new update ( Same One ).
Does the AMD driver code utilize telemetry somehow? I may be thinking about this all wrong and I am really not too concerned about it, I am just trying to understand a reason as to why, " Out of The Blue " I have received these notices ( 2 to date ) that a new update was available.
W7, 3.4Ghz, 16GB ram, Fully Updated, Computer works excellent, just curious as to the reason this happens.
I have just tried to install this new update and guess what, i cant do it... Green screen while installing. Reinstalled drivers 16.12.2 from Dec2016 and all is fine..
I have been doing a little searching and it seems that there may have been a new update issued, but the version info was not changed to reflect that it is allegedly a WHQL package, as opposed to the Beta.
Can anyone verify this?
P.S. The update link I used yesterday has no mention of WHQL.
Aye that's what I see too, looks like they plastered a 16.12.2 WHQL release yesterday. I keep getting the notifications as well even though I have notifications OFF.
Apparently it's the exact same 16.12.2 package with a signature, as the driver versions are the same from the release notes to the previous 16.12.2 package
GPU-Z shows it as a whql .
