Crimson driver 16.7.3 is an improvement for me.
The System Shock demo still crashes. However, instead of getting the usual no signal black screen crash, now the game just crashes and I can continue using Windows without a hard reset.
Same thing for Media Player Classic with madVR renderer. I still get a crash, but now I am able to alt-f4 to close the crashed Media Player Classic and continue using windows without a hard reset.
Dolphin 5.0 emulator now seems to work without crashing using the DX12 renderer.
Not sure if the crashes are a problem with the applications or display drivers, but I'm glad now the crashes don't stall the entire system.
The same thing happened to me with crimson 16.7.3 and POLLEN game. Instead of getting no signal black screen, it just crashes and i can use windows.
POLLEN was always getting black screen in a specific spot up to crimson 16.7.2.
I'm enjoying Dark Souls 3 on 16.7.2 so much I don't want to upgrade my driver. Can anyone confirm 16.7.3 with DS3 for me. I know someone said they got 2 hours but I need more to feel safe to upgrade.
