    These drivers improved my framerate in Destiny 2 on Vega 64 quite a bit, but they are also causing the game to crash in a certain area of the game during a mission. Happens every time.

    Why are some driver versions larger/smaller than others? 17.10.2 is 318Mb, 17.7.2 is 464Mb.

    What's going on with no recent driver updates for Win 8?

    Which would explain Win 7 still getting updates.

    What's the market share for Win 8/8.1?

    What's the market share for Win 7?

    That's why.

    Moving the guidelines doesn't help the argument.

    It's still a stupid decision to not include drivers for an in service mainstream OS, and it will affect my next purchase which is what they should be caring about.

    No it was stupid to not have upgraded to W10 when it was free like everyone else. Calling Win8.1 mainstream is laughably overreaching. It hovers around WinXP and slightly ahead of Linux.

    Who says I didn't reserve my Win 10 upgrade. Until WMC is a default utility in it though, 8 will stay my main OS.

    Windows 8 did get some bad rap, but that aside, the only option really for the newer games is windows 10...neither windows 7 nor 8.1 support DX12. Vulcan can help, but not all games support it.

    WMC? You aren't upgrading because of WMC? This is not an AMD issue. You are your own worst enemy. There are so many better apps than WMC you could install and use.

    That work with a cable card device, not really.

    And looking at the available drivers for the latest cards, it's even more absurd there is no win8 driver. Has 10, 7, Linux, and a couple OS types whenever heard of. And again, why is win 8 not on that list.

    What happens if you try the Windows 10 driver? I've seen drivers in the same package for both 10 and 8/8.1 mainly because it's the same package. I've been updating through Radeon Settings so I apologize if that isn't the case here.

    Assuming it wouldn't let the install complete and it doesn't show as an option if I try and find the new drivers from the settings utility.

    Yes, it would. Windows 7 SP1 is not EOL. Win8 is.

    Note that I am speaking about Windows 8. Windows 8.1 (SP1?) is still not EOL.

    Is there some reason that you didn't upgrade Windows 8 to 8.1, Lupi?

    Offtopic but may be useful for some: Microsoft servers still accept upgrading to Win10. Did not test with recent ISO builds but the one before the official deadline works, I made an upgrade 2 weeks ago.
