Works for me to. rx580 ;)
I'm a little confused now - these 3D previews come from the different blender versions (yours and official 2.78)
but obviously the bottom one, which is the experimental one, is different.
This has absolutely nothing to do with this bug, but I'd just like to know why that is

I doesn't contain any other stuff so it should be safe. Now that the fix is committed, tomorrow's build from builder.blender.org and 2.79 will have the fix as well.
Okay, I just tested it.
It seems to work fine and I can't see any artifacts - Yei!
I don't have a Windows machine to test, but perhaps P506 can solve it. Here's a build with that patch for testing:

I think I got this...had this hapening each time I turned off the discrete (AMD) GPU of a laptop to use only the apu: switch back to dual graphics and no problems.
Looks like triple buffering in User Preferencs > System > Window Draw Method is to blame and it should also be the one selected in ' Automatic'. All other options do not cause the freezing. Another thing I noticed is that it makes no difference if you enable triple buffering in your gpu driver options, it just doesnt like it on some models :P
Hope that helps...

Particle drawing has been implemented for object mode, and hair has been implemented for Clay and for Eevee.
Just to add a bit of extra info in case it is useful, blender 2.8 crashes for every engine on my machine, not just Eevee. I have tried BI, Clay and Cycles. Pressing TAB on the default scene using any of these engines crashes Blender immediately.

Thanks so much for sharing the link!!!
Confirmed: matcaps displaying in Blender 2.78 with AMD wx7100 Pro, with June 2017 Driver Update.

I don't know why this is not getting enough attention. We should manually make Blender use Overlap as 'Automatic' when it detects an affected card.

Thanks. I have compiled the grease-object branch, and try to learn the code. Looking forward to your documents. Please feel free to assign me tasks that suit beginners. Thanks.
We have done a lot of things relative to strokes drawing, new grease pencil objects, new modes etc, This must be detailed in a document we are working and will put on wiki.

And the problem is solved with an updated driver.
That said, I can't get a working matcap even with 2.77a. Can someone that has matcap working in 2.77a let me know the exact driver version you are using?
I can reproduce the issue here. It happens only on Windows, same card on Linux runs fine

We will be dropping support for GCN1 because we cant fix these issues for a variety of reasons:
- I don't have a GCN1 card to test on or try to find a workaround.
- Everything seems to be fine on GCN2 and 3 as well as Nvidia OpenCL, so we know the kernels work.
- That means this is most likely a driver bug, which is something we cant fix anyways.
- It seems that AMD hasn't provided updates for these cards in a while now.
On this thread https://community.amd.com/message/2772700 there is a confirmation that ticket has been raised against this issue with 7870. It is being investigated.
We are leaving GCN 1.0 behind because of various errors like this that we cannot fix. @Mai Lavelle (maiself) may wish to comment further is she would like.
No this is on the hardware level and not software so the GCN (Graphics Core Next) version will not change.
You can view what GCN a card is on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units
Coukd you leave the compatibility requirement for 7870?
Maybe someday AMD will change the drivers so that issue will be fixed. I have been writing the feedback to them often.
The AMD HD 7870 is only a GCN 1.0 card for 2.79 we bumped our requirement to GCN 2.0. For the final release, these cards will not be selectable from the menu.
