I went back to the old beta blockchain drivers..
I couldnt even use 18.4.1, kept getting Radeon settings version does not match driver version.. It wouldnt even load..
Amd really needs to hire some real software engineers, from my understanding things have been broken sine 18.2.2... I think amd uses interns so they dont have to pay them..
Same here. When I tried updating to 1803 my system BSOD'd and now after everything I'm wondering if having two GPU's installed has anything to do with it. In any case, after doing a FRESH install of 1803 on my system, I noticed that I started getting horrible stuttering/lag any time I clicked on anything or opened anything AFTER installing the newest AMD drivers. I used DDU to uninstall it and magically the problem went away. So I reinstalled the drivers and it came back again. Then I thought to try enabling crossfire and the stuttering has greatly improved. We shouldn't have to have it enabled by default, though. Even with it enabled, however, performance isn't the same since updating to 1803. I really hope AMD addresses this soon.
try disabling crossfire on both cards in regedit
Here is a video of the evidence of this problem. In the beginning, I demonstrate freezing when the crossfire is off. Then I turn on the crossfire and as you see there are no problems.
Also provide screenshots on which you can see the temperature increase.

Hi, I am using 6x Radeon RX 580 GPU and a BioStar TB250 BTC motherboard and I had this problem but because there was 6 GPU's, the stuttering got worse and worse with each GPU that I added. The stuttering was frequent, and would last 3 to 5 seconds each time. Trying to go into Radeon Settings to change from graphics mode to compute mode would take 10 to 20 minutes each time. The stuttering only began after installing the drivers which indicated it was related to the GPU drivers.
I think I found the solution-- it worked for me anyway. Hope it will help you.
The motherboard I'm using for mining DOES NOT SUPPORT CROSSFIRE, but I suspect the problem is related to the drivers trying to auto detect crossfire because there are multiple GPU's installed. In fact, the stuttering is very similar to when you install a 2nd AMD card into a machine that does support CrossFire and the driver detects it, and that it was cause me to intuitively guess at the problem.
HERE IS HOW I FIXED IT:
Find every occurrence of EnableCrossFireAutoLink and change the value to 0 (there are many!!)
Find every occurrence of EnableUlps and change the value to 0 (there are equally as many!!)
Boom. Problem solved.
