    Auto-Detect doesn't suggest the newest driver

    sarahnorthway

      I just ran the AMD Driver Autodetect on my Win10 x64 / R9 Nano system, and it told me my driver was up to date (today is 11/28/2016). My dxdiag said this:

       

                Card name: AMD Radeon (TM) R9 Fury Series

           Driver Version: 21.19.137.1

         Driver Date/Size: 9/15/2016 4:00:00 PM, 1571728 bytes

        

      I was having graphical issues with a game and tech support insisted my driver was out of date. So I manually installed Radeon Software 211 MB Crimson Edition 16.11.5 Hotfix 11/27/2016, and lo and behold it found a driver that was 2 months newer. Now my dxdiag says:

       

                Card name: AMD Radeon (TM) R9 Fury Series

           Driver Version: 21.19.160.769

         Driver Date/Size: 11/7/2016 4:00:00 PM, 1582720 bytes

       

      And the update fixed my graphical issues. Why didn't Autodetect tell me there was a newer driver?
