I participate in the Windows Insider Dev Channel and interestingly, when I went to install this new driver package, it actually indicated that it was a "downgrade" (and indeed it was). I have never seen that before (and yes, I have downgraded AMD display drivers from the Dev Channel to retail drivers before).
Has anyone else had the AMD display driver package tell them it was a downgrade from their current display driver or is this new behavior?

Interesting. Also looks like Windows 7 is now legacy status on AMD site, and this driver version doesn't support it. Last Windows 7 driver is the WHQL version of 21.5.2
