Battlefield 1 unplayable with RX480

Got a brand new RX480 and Battlefield is unplayable, doesn't matter if graphics are all on low or all on ultra, in less than 5 minutes it freezes and I have to kill the process, plus the drivers crash and not always recover.

 

I've tried these drivers and got these results:

16.12.2 and 16.12.1: Game crashes and gives me the "DirectX Function Error"

16.11.5: Game freezes, have to kill the process.

 

I did try other drivers but they basically fall into those 2 categories above.

 

Plus before I got the RX480, battlefield was running well enough with a GTX 760, even though everything was set to low, I was getting 30-40 FPS most of the time.

 

I also tried other heavy tasks like Witcher 3 on max settings and Heaven Benchmark and everything works fine. Also tried: fresh windows install + fresh BF1 install, 1 screen instead of 2, vsync on, vsync off, frame capping to 50 fps instead of 60, using DDU on each driver uninstall in safe mode.

 

Any ideas when a new driver is gonna be released? or If I missed an old driver that is stable on battlefield 1? Any help is appreciated.
