    Constant crashing in games on RX480


      Hi all,


      I've been having some big problems with my Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB RX480. The gist of it is that any games that I play crash constantly whenever I use a driver other than 16.7.3.

      On 16.7.3 I can play:

      On Steam:



      Batman:Arkham Origins

      On GOG:

      The Witcher 3


      Performance is adequate, but i would like to take advantage of the extra stability and performance of the newer drivers.

      I have tried: 16.9.2, 16.10.3,16.11.1,16.11,2. In each case I have tried it both as an upgrade and as a clean install using DDU, the results are the same.


      The same games mentioned above crash.

      Cities: Skylines, plays for about 2 minutes and then hangs (with sound still audible). Looking at the logs I see a lot of these errors:

      d3d11: failed to create index buffer of size 4848 [0x887A0005]

      d3d11: failed to create vertex buffer of size 12160 [0x887A0005]


      Dota2: Same behaviour as Cities, but after about 10-15 minutes of gameplay

      Batman: Arkham Origins. Crashes on loading the menu with the attached error message.

      The Witcher 3: Crashes as soon as gameplay starts.


      Temperatures appear fine..

      IDLE: CPU: 29 ; GPU: 47

      Load: CPU: 45 ; GPU: 81



      i5 6400  + Noctua NH-U14S cooler

      Asus Z170-E Motherboard

      8GB Corsair Vengeance

      Sapphire Nitro+ RX480 4GB

      LG 29UM68-P monitor (freesync ultrawide) on DP

      Windows 10 Pro



      Things i've tried:

      - Re-installing drivers using DDU and anti-virus off

      - Disabling driver signing verification

      - SFC /scannow


      Any advice would be appreciated!
