The new drivers in the default configuration are still out of spec with PCIe.
The fix that AMD applied is to route more power from the 6-pin PCIe power cable to reduce the power drawn from the motherboard. The motherboard is now supposed to be in-spec (of course, independent testing is necessary) but by defintion the 6-pin PCIe cable, which was already providing more than the specification-rated 75W, is definitely out of spec.
Now as a practical matter, the extra power draw through the 6-pin cable will not cause problems with any halfway decent PSU. However, just saying "oh it won't damage your computer in a practical scenario" is not the same thing as complying with the PCIe specification. Actual compliance with PCIe is required to show the logo on the box and advertise compatibility.
The fact that there is now going to be a non-standard "optional" mode that complies with PCIe is nice, but unless it's the default mode out of the box, it's not enough.
