    Why does Call of Duty WW2 require 17.7.2 or later ?


      Why Call of Duty is not working properly on 17.7.1 ? I mean , yeah , i've seen the message at the start of the game that i need 17.7.2 or later , but 17.7.2 and later drivers are crappy , and i don't want to use them . Is there any way i can make the new Call of Duty to run properly on 17.7.1 ? (at the moment the game is crashing while using 17.7.1 - game crash , not driver crash)


      PC Specs:

      i7 6700

      16GB DDR4

      RX 480 8GB

      Win 10 Pro (fall creators update)


      The reason why i don't wanna use newer drivers than 17.7.1 is because i had bad experience with them . Here is my experience with the newer drivers:

      17.7.2 - added random crashes/hangs in Overwatch

      17.8.2 - added bugs in The Witcher 3 while using HBAO+ (When HBAO + is turned on , black bars are visible on the objects in the cutscenes)

      17.10.1 - added random crashes in Rise of the Tomb Raider ("A problem has occurred with your display driver")

      17.10.2 - added random crashes in GTA V and Rainbow Six Siege ; texture glitches in Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Motorsport 7 ; and also made Rise of the Tomb Raider to crash even more often than before

      17.10.3 - added random crashes to all of my games

      17.11.1 - added random BSODs "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" (doesn't matter if you are gaming , or using the browser , it simply happens random)

                   - no more crashes to all of my games , but i'm still experiencing issues with most of them (Overwatch , ROTTR , GTA V , Rainbow Six Siege , Wolfenstein II The New Colossus)

      ---->This is a really nice driver improvement over time . *FineWine* Kappa


      And nope , i'm not the only one with these problems . I've seen many people on this forum that have the same problems as me .

      Using the latest stable driver (17.7.1) fixes all the issues , so i'm 100% sure that the new drivers are faulty .


      Can you give me some help , AMD ?
