Driver Version: 16.12.1

Display Devices: Asus VN247H @ 1080P 60Hz, HDMI

Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 R5

Problem: Lately, I have been experiencing crashes to the desktop in most DirectX 11 games, starting moments after installing the ReLive edition of the Crimson drivers. The problem is intermittent, but tends to occur no less than 5 minutes, and no more than 40 minutes, after starting a DirectX 11 game. Games that have an alternate mode such as DirectX 9 in GTA 5, Final Fantasy XIV, and Guns of Icarus Online, can run perfectly fine for upwards of 5 hours in this mode, albeit with reduced performance and a bit of noticeable input lag. (I have not tested longer durations.) Operating other Windows applications such as Mozilla Thunderbird or Teamspeak is fine. After a game crashes, Radeon Settings will usually not open, becoming unresponsive and forcing Windows to terminate it before it loads the interface. A reboot is required to restore the Radeon Settings app to working order. One of these crashes will also break the Windows 10 theme for window title bars, making them appear partially as a "classic" title bar, until a reboot. (Windows 2000-esque, if that makes sense.)


Affected Games (Where I've verified it works outside DX11):
Final Fantasy XIV

Grand Theft Auto V

Guns of Icarus Online


Graphics Settings Used:

1080p @ 60Hz


Anisotropic Filtering, 4-16x

High Texture Quality

Radeon settings have been reset globally, issue still persists.

ReLive is disabled, and I haven't even tried it so far.


I can provide screenshots if needed, but I don't have them at the moment. I'll post them in a reply once I've got them all.
