Geeks 3D has a great overview of the new OpenGL and Vulkan features in the AMD Adrenalin 17.12.1 release. AMD has added some OpenGL 4.6 extensions (GL_ARB_gl_spirv) but not all, so Adrenalin 17.12.1 is still an OpenGL 4.5 driver with OpenGL 4.6 features. This driver exposes 319 OpenGL extensions (GL=294 and WGL=25) for a Radeon RX 470 on Windows 10 64-bit. Adrenalin 17.12.1 also exposes Vulkan 1.0.65 which is one of the latest specifications. Vulkan support has been added to Radeon Overlay, Radeon Relive, Enhanced Sync and Frame rate target control.
