    Driver 14.501 crashes constantly, but 14.301 does not

    shaunofshadou@gmail.com

      Whenever I try to play games using 14.12 Omega (driver 14.501), I get all kinds of "driver amdkmdap has stopped functioning and successfully recovered" errors. However, after extensive troubleshooting, I rolled back to 14.9 (driver 14.301) and none of my games crash with that error anymore (except for Heroes of the Storm but I blame that on SC2's crappy engine). I have an R7 250x that I got back in March, and I'm running Windows 7 Professional x64.

       

      What I want to know is:

       

      Am I going to be okay using an older driver?
      Do certain AMD drivers just not like certain AMD hardware?

      Is my version of Windows maybe the problem?

      Am I going to be boned later when newer software comes out?

       

      Anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated.
