Cool. Are these WHQL? They always make it difficult to tell in the release notes. Anyway, my Radeon cards are stuck on 21.4.1 until PM is updated to support later drivers.

No I don't believe they are. Screen capped this off the driver page from AMD.

I was having an occasional hard driver crash/reboot in Riftbreaker Demo (Prologue) on 21.6.2 that was not due to an overclock.

21.7.1 appears to have also extended that issue to Time Spy - frequently fails the run or hard driver crash initiating reboot.

I rolled back to 21.6.2 since I only saw the issue in Riftbreaker but then I needed to connect an Oculus via Oculus link And 21.7.1 has the magic fix to allow it to work again.

Pick your demons, I guess.

Also, if you can get Time Spy to complete a run, they either fixed SAM in Time Spy or blacklisted it - on 21.6.2 and earlier you'd score around 1000 points less with SAM enabled on a 6800xt/6900xt and with 21.7.1 that is no longer the case.
