Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition Beta for Blockchain Compute Released

16 Aug
2017

AMD has released a new beta video driver “for Blockchain Compute” or with other words a driver intended for mining and not for gaming use. The Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition Beta for Blockchain Compute Driver Version 17.30.1029 (Windows Driver Store Version 22.19.659.0) is available for Windows 7 and Windows 10 in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The driver supports AMD Radeon HD 7×00 GPUs all the way up to the latest Radeon RX Vega Series Graphics. There are no official details available on what are the optimizations and if you should expect any kind of performance improvement. In fact this is more like a driver fixing the DAG epoch issues for Ethereum mining and it does not seem to be bringing any specific hashrate improvement other than restoring performance for Ethereum miners on Polaris GPUs. There was an unofficial fix a couple of days ago, but now you can use this official beta driver with the same results as the previous unofficial solution.

Not working for me under Win7 x64 on RX480 8GB, installation completes but after rebooting and trying to open Radeon Settings the window gets stuck on the task bar, if i try to mine using those drivers Claymore Eth 9.8 crashes almost instantly… going back to 17.7.2 makes everything work again.

@etayorius Which drivers are best to use for Polaris cards? I thought 16.12 was the newest one could use for claymore.

AMD – lack of logic…

New Beta version 22.19.659.0
Previous (unofficial driver) version 22.19.659.1

Something simillar with Radeon Software Crimson ReLive – they release 17.7.2 and again 17.7.2 (with different release date)…

WTF AMD???

Amd driver release not work for windows 7, claymore can not build opencl program. Win10 version work like a charm. Too bad that amd state that will be no futher fix to that not working driver…

Got it to work on Win7 x64, but not through the official “Crimson Relive For Blockchain Compute”. What i did was to FULLY install 17.7.2, then got the Leaked Beta Drivers and force their installation through Device Manager and apply the patch OVER 17.7.2. It is Working perfectly now, i was getting 24.4 Mh/s and went back up to 27.3 Mh/s.

You might want to get the leaked drivers for Win7.

Btw the large increase value of BTC started to ponder me and I noticed that in recent months food prices in stores increased by 30%, would the great crisis come and fall the value of the dollar? Will the US government start like always a war to cover up this? Will they attack in Syria or North korea first?

Yupi, I installed 17.7.2 and installed “Leaked Beta Dag Fix”, not the official Blockchain Compute ones.

Just google and download the “Leaked Beta Dag Fix Drivers” and use the instructions in there, then force install those ones into 17.7.2 through Device Manager.

Random Dude, any recent driver will work fine with Polaris, but if you want to get some lost hashrate back due to the Dag Epoch increasing in size just install 17.7.2 and then download and the “Leaked Beta Dag Fix” drivers, force install those ones into 17.7.2 Device manager and then apply the patch provided with the Leaked Beta Dag Fix.

Just installed the official beta today on a mixed RX 5 card rig, a 480’s, 3-470’s and a 4 gig 460, all cards un-tweaked and un-modded. Just followed AMD’s uninstall procedure (did not use DDU) and then installed the driver. hash rate had been fluctuating a lot with and average of 91 mhs. After the install it is running at 111 mhs with very little fluctuations in my hash rate. If it continues like this I may attempt to tweak the voltage and clock rates some to see if I can get it a little higher yet. Happy so far, hope they come out with the beta Linux driver for my Linux rig soon.
