17.10.1 Drivers kill all overclocking on HD7970 (2D issues)

As per title the latest drivers cause issue with some 2D parts of games but not 3D.

On a few games there is severe graphical corruption on loading screens if either the GPU or Memory is overclocked at all, it doesn't affect videos or 3D rendering.

Card is normally O/C to 950 GPU/1400 RAM but with these drivers as soon as overdrive is engaged  (ie either by just 1Hz) the problem occurs.

Switching back to previous drivers solves it.

 

It happens in a few games, but was first noticed in Dying Light on the loading screens between levels.

 

I haven't checked but it looks to me something like the card is being mistaking undervolted or something.

 

Windows 10 Pro x64
