Look at the release drivers that had loads of issues that most reviewers couldn't understand even got through Q&A, that's if they even did any. Plus they even managed to break things on Vega and Polaris that made them slower WTF. Pathetic to be honest and Navi is still in beta which is a joke.
They did not make them slower for vega or polaris. As i suggested in the other thread where you posted, that you need to go read there update to the article/benchmarks you linked. It was their fault there was a slow down, not the drivers.
There was only 1 game in the end that had problems, and that could be due to the gpu drivers, other hardware drivers (chipset), game code, or windows itself, nobody really knows.
