What is the point of going for the optional 17.1.1 update vs the recommended 16.12.2 update? Doesn't 16.12.2 entail more including 17.1.1?
One is newer (today) than the other.
You have to remember, that driver 'updates' are nothing more than driver 'fixes'. If it doesn't 'fix' a issue you have or add support to a app or game...then you don't need it.
17.1.1 drivers...Read Me
What's the point of updating if the newer version fixes some issues you don't even have? It is not necessary or advisable to install any and every newer driver. Stay with what is working for you...unless you read in the "Release Notes" of the new drivers that a problem you have been having is addressed.
Ya I haven't upgraded cause its all fine. But that still doesn't answer my question why are there two, lol. Like is one beta and the other official?
I guess the newer one also entails the 16.12.2 as well. Thanks
Yes...the drivers are cumulative....what fixes/changes that the previous drivers had are incorporated into the newer driver.
