An AMD Representative already responded and said they are not gonna fix it. If you want to play Command and Conquer either downgrade your drivers (Good Luck with new games) or Buy an Nvidia Card.
Its not really a big deal, when you wanna play C&C series just re-install the old drivers, and when you wanna play newer titles just re-install the latest one :-)

I couldn't disagree more. It's absolutely a big deal. I didn't buy my hardware to have to dance around random breakages in new drivers because someone got sloppy with the engineering. If this doesn't get fixed, and real soon, it'll be the last hardware I buy with an AMD name on it.
Apparently after the news got out someone from AMD responded saying there going to address the issue
I know that i've already posted this on another topic before , but because it suits your situation so well , i'll just leave it here as well :
"I personally can't wait for Nvidia to launch a new series of gpus so i can join the green team .
I recently had tons of problems with the AMD drivers , which made me to totally agree with my friends that said : "don't buy an AMD graphics card , they are sabotaging their own products with horrible drivers"
Issues that i experienced with AMD drivers:
-In radeon settings you can't force vertical sync , even though you choose always on , that option isn't doing anything (an old issue that AMD never addressed)
-Freesync is not working properly on HDMI , aka screen tearing inside the freesync range , while on DisplayPort it works as intended (again , an old issue that AMD never addressed)
-Overwatch crashes since July , and after 6 freaking months they finally fixed it
-ROTTR crashes since October , and they still didn't fixed the issue
-Rainbow six siege crashes since October , finally in december they fixed the issue
-The "Radeon Settings" app tends to crash after reseting the settings
-Enhanced Sync is making the borderless gaming impossible (heavy stuttering)
-Enhanced Sync is making MPC-HC unusable (heavy stuttering)
-Enhanced Sync + Radeon Overlay is making the games to stutter (mild stuttering)
-With an rx 460 league of legends is crashing since july and they never adressed the issue ("display driver has stopped responding and has recovered")
+many many other issues
I totally regret buying an RX 480 and an RX 460 from AMD , and these are gonna be my last AMD graphics cards ! It's a shame how they have good products but horrible support for them.
Note: I had several Nvidia products in past , and i never experienced so many drivers issues. At least now i know why nvidia's market share is so big compared to amd's.... the DRIVERS are making the difference."
I forgot to mention their attitude which is like a middle-finger to gamers
"ray_m : This title is from 2007, so we are unlikely to devote any valuable engineering resources to this issue, which is most likely caused by outdated API modules."
From my 6+ years (overall) experience with AMD products i have to tell you guys that i have never been so disappointed like i am right now...Till they are gonna stop sabotaging their own products with bad drivers , i'll personally avoid all their products on the graphics card side (on the cpu side ryzen is doing really good so i have no reason to avoid their cpus)
