16.10.3 STILL Crashing

I cannot reiterate my frustration with AMD's Crimson Edition drivers any further. Version 16.10.3 of the drivers is still causing the sound card to fail to respond to Windows query and then to recover. This has been a recurring problem ever since I bought the card. Fixing the TdrDelay value to "8" does no good.

 

The only known solution, thus far, has been to reduce GPU clockspeed by 300mhz on all seven states in AMD Wattman. This, of course, means that users must run 300 mhz under the advertised clockspeed.

 

Please fix this as soon as possible, AMD. The whole point of a graphics card is to play a game. But a user cannot play a game if their display driver is constantly crashing. This problem affects not just my Sapphire Nitro+ AMD Radeon RX 470 8GB model, but various models by XFX, ASUS, MSI and other manufacturers.
