    not criticizing or anything but you might want to put whats fixed in the box as well.The Post as it is now with only issue boxes gives a bad feeling to the user about AMD cards

    Actually that's all there is in the patch... it only added support for the mining version of those cards, the bugs that were introduced in the previous patch remain hence they've been mentioned.

    Iam not sure if this is whats fixed but here it is.

    Fixed Issues
    Some displays may experience corruption when using HDMI® scaling.
    Battlefield™1 may experience stuttering in Multi GPU mode with 4K display resolutions when using DirectX®11.
    HDR colors may appear incorrect in Mass Effect™: Andromeda on the latest Windows®10 Creators Edition update.
    Some incorrect or unavailable feature descriptions may appear in Radeon Settings under the more/less help section.
    Radeon RX 550 series graphics products may experience a hard hang when the user's system has not been rebooted for long periods of time.
    Reboot prompt may be missing after Radeon Software installation on AMD XConnect™ technology system configurations.


    I think this is the new fixed note as the old driver only contained support for so and so game.
