18.8.1 doesn't work with my RX 590 ("can't detect")

I just upgraded from my old R9 290 to have more frames in Monster Hunter World. I got around 50-60 FPS on average with the 18.8.1. driver that is optimized for MHW.

Now I get the same FPS on average with the much more expensive RX 590 when using the newest driver, which just isn't right in my book.

When I try to test it with the 18.8.1 driver, I either get this error OR (third-party download links) I can install it but my PC doesn't detect the driver anyway.


Either someone tells me what the fix is for this or I promise this is my last AMD card. I'm just tired of this.
