With the new release of the New AMD Card named as Vega, the company don’t want to end up with shortage issues this time. Since it will affect the company sales and all. Consequently, the company is doing their best to help the miners to keep up the track with mining and older GPUs running for mining. Since then, AMD issued so of the so called official drivers, specifically for mining purpose. The main aim of their drivers and software is to maximize the hashrate by enhancing overall performance and specifically focuses on the mining since these cards are not gonna use for the gaming now so the rendering is not so important now.
AMD was working on these drivers from a quite while now and the first edition has been released 2 weeks earlier called the unofficial beta release. A few days ago the company released the same in their official webpage now.

Working with Rx 500s and Rx400s the hashrate were slightly lower since few weeks. Though according to AMD website the mention Crimson Relive Beta Release is compatible with wide AMD GPUs.
Before: Hashrate: 27Mh/s
