    Update?? From 18.10.1 to 18.9.3




      I'm getting seriuosly annoyed by the Radeon software "update". I have the 18.10.1 version installed and the radeon keep poping up the annoying update message. Surprisingly the "update" it is actually a downgrade to 18.9.3 - I have a RX570 4Gb win 10 64bits





      Not sure what to do with this, can't find info about this non sense and everyday I got this message even selecting to ignore.
      ps: no graphic problems so far, runnning quiet smooth in all games I play "for hornor, warframe, dreadnought, watch dogs 2, darksector and eve online".

          • Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products may experience elevated memory clocks during system idle.
          • Radeon Software update notifications may sometimes incorrectly list the currently installed driver as an available software update.

              You're good in copy and pasting information from the website. However, nowhere is clearly stated that 18.9.3 is recommended over 18.10.1.


              Look at the package content:

              • Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.10.1 Driver Version (Windows Driver Store Version 25.20.14003.1012)
              • Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.9.3 Driver Version (Windows Driver Store Version 24.20.13019.1008)


              Clearly the 18.10.1 is the newer version, based solely on the numbers provided.

              Without any specific notification that 18.9.3 supersedes 18.10.1 I suspect AMD does something wrong in their driver release proces. Something like a previous fork that makes it to final (exit optional/beta status) is accidentally reported as the latest recommended. While in fact it's a valid driver it's not necessarily your 'new recommended'.


              If the 18.9.3 truly is the successor or improvement over 18.10.1 in this particular case. AMD should specifically mention in the release notes, that this version (18.9.3) replaces 18.10.1.

              Showing the 'Recommended' driver is not a bug, it is an advisory of the WHQL driver available. Maybe the word 'new' should be removed from the description ?

              As for you getting daily reminders, not sure about that(never had it). I use custom install option and uncheck any ref. to updates.

                Not sure if it's bug, the same show me when i check on driver updates I have the 18.9.3 installed and the 18.11.2 optional.

                For you the 18.9.3 is recomended because the most combatible with your graphic card and the 18.10.1 in the curent state may give some bug and glitches to the performance of the graphic card.
