AMD uploaded the Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.Q4 driver, this release is intended for the Radeon Pro WX 9100 and Radeon Pro SSG. Furthermore, this is also the first new major driver release for the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition since that card got launched on June 27.

The biggest change in this release is the introduction of "Driver Options", this feature lets you switch between the Pro and up to two regular gaming drivers:
This driver contains the “Driver Options” (only available on Microsoft Windows® 10) feature that allows the user to install a Radeon Pro Software professional driver and up to two Radeon™ Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Radeon™ Pro gaming drivers on their platform while using the supported products (Radeon™ Pro WX series and Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition).?
