So I had no issues with AMD and Element 3D or OpenGL until 16.1, every driver before that works, but with 16.1.1, 16.2 and 16.3 I get this error while trying to use Element 3D.

 

"Element failed to initialize OpenGL.

Please ensure your GPU drivers are up to date, and that your GPU is compatible."

 

Element info tells me:
"GPU Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc.

GPU: AMD Radeon (TM) R9 390 Series

GPU Driver: 16.150.2111.0

GPU RAM: 0MB

GPU Code: 101"

 

Basically Element doesn't recognize the GPU with the new drivers.
