Rx 480 f@h

I just picked up a new video card. I got the RX 480 8GB and was wondering if F@H runs okay on the latest 17.1.2 driver. I know NVidia had a serious problem with some of their drivers (caused a lot of failed WUs on my GTX 970) and I don't want to see the same thing with this card.
Thx

After running 24/7 for 2 1/2 days I have a 312k average PPD with this card. That's about the same as my GTX 970. Very happy with that performance.

In my testing of some of the Relive bloatware drivers (16.12 and later), I've found them to be noticeably LOWER performance than 16.10.1 (or any of the other 16.10 and 16.9 versions) on the RX 4xx series.

16.10.1 is the newest WHQL version I'll even consider using at this point - and the Relive drivers IMO are SO bad I'm probably going to totally ignore the RX 5xx series and VEGA.

Don't even get me started on that worse than worthless "Wattman" garbage.
Afterburner was a ton better 5 YEARS ago.

I don't load the Relive part of the driver package because I have no use for it. Just the actual video driver & audio driver. (I do the same with all the crapware added into the NVidia driver packages too). The video portion of the newer AMD driver works fine for me - no real hit to folding or gaming.

I didn't load the "relive" addons either when I was testing performance, but I was consistantly seeing 5-10% lower performance on my RX470, R9, and HD series cards vs 16.10.1 or 15.12 in my testing.
