Can an AMD graphic driver, or opensource, that worked in Fedora 22 be installed in Fedora 27?

I recently updated from Fedora 22 to Fedora 27. Despite a few hurdles I got everything working. There is only one hiccup. The graphics appear elongated. I have an older AMD chip built in to my mother board which was working fine with Fedora 22. Is there a way to install an older driver on 27?

Here is the current driver on Fedora 27 and the AMD devices on my system. I do not know what driver was with Fedora 22.
