BEWARE, Driver version 17.8.1 is severely bugged and should be avoided at all costs. I have an R9380 and it causes a full-screen green screen upon starting Windows and that fully locks up the PC. I booted into safe mode, used DDU and reinstalled same result. I did that again but installed 17.7.2 and everything went back to normal. This is 100% absolutely the driver's fault and if you value being able to boot your PC at all, I would highly recommend you avoid this release until this can be fixed. Thank GOD my CPU has an IGPU or I would not have been able to get into Windows at all to be able to run DDU and revert the driver.

UPDATE: Tested 17.9.2, issue still exists. The last functional driver release was 17.7.2
