Issues with new drivers (17.11.1 and 17.11.2)

Hoping to get some attention brought to this issue. Any advice is appreciated as well.


I don't know how far back in the previous versions this goes, but over the past few updates, I've been having an issue where as I record games with a capture preview on another monitor, the preview has been getting more and more choppy. Finally, with the most recent update, the preview is completely static. When I noticed this, I opened up my hardware monitor and saw that the GPU load was at a constant 100%. I also noticed that it wasn't just the recording preview, but the hardware monitor values weren't updating either. Upon changing the focus from the game to either of the other programs, they looked fine. I reverted back to version 17.4.4 and that fixed the issue, leading me to believe it's an issue with the graphics drivers.
