Highlights of AMD Catalyst™ 15.11.1 Beta Windows Driver
Performance Optimizations
Includes quality and performance optimizations for the following titles:
      • Star Wars™: Battlefront
      • Fallout 4
      • Assassin's Creed® Syndicate
      • Call of Duty® : Black Ops III
Known Issues:
  • [80314] Assassin's Creed® Syndicate - Game cannot be launched in full screen mode on some laptop systems with an Intel processor and an AMD graphics device
  • [80119] Star Wars™ : Battlefront - Game cannot be launched in full screen mode on some laptop systems with an Intel processor and an AMD graphics device.
  • [79824] Call of Duty® : Black Ops III - Flickering may be observed when running the game in DirectX® 11 mode and with AMD Crossfire™ enabled
  • [59475] Elite: Dangerous - poor performance may be experienced in SuperCruise mode
  • [78912] A black screen may be experienced on booting Windows® 10 on some systems with switchable graphics - with AMD Radeon
    HD5000 series graphics cards, when connected to an HDMI monitor
Thanks AMD to release a new minor driver build to only report it will flicker in DX11 and using CFX.

Maybe the nonexistent DX12 version will work better!

LOL

It shows Driver date is Nov 13 2015 so this is Fallout 4 driver. I test Fallout 4 & it ran a bit smooth, still better then nothing.

Also this driver is for the new Assassin's Creed game & Fallout 4 & COD: Black Ops lll. we got to wait two weeks for the new software from AMD.

Most games support CrossFire, some games don't work. That's just something you have to deal with as a CrossFire user.

However, i feel your pain. As a CrossFire user you want all the performance your system can deliver. I want to play Fallout 4 at 4K, but it looks like i have to settle with 1440p.

AMD (or Nvidia) can't magically add multi-GPU support from nowhere, the game must have basic support for it.

Bethesda has this and other dozens bugs to solve.

That's your opinion and i respect it, mine is different.

IDK maybe you are fine about current AMD support for crossfire, i'm not.
IDK maybe you prefer to wait and see, have faith and expect DX12 disolving all CFX problems including DX9-11 ones.

What is silly is to theoretically add "quality and performance optimizations" for a game and at the same time advice of "Flickering may be observed when running the game in DirectX® 11 mode and with AMD Crossfire™ enabled".

That's on the same smart line of advices as:"we suggest disabling Crossfire.".

I guess you consider all your posts as profound thoughts in comparison, good for you.

There is a "ignore" button to avoid all my posts at once, you are free to use it if you like.

If you think that there is something in my posts who is against the forum rules, there is also a button to report individual post to mods.

These are pretty crap for crossfire sw battlefront, still has the massive loading stutter lag from beta they havent fixed. Like the in-game diorama 100% crash loading cf each time, not with single gpu.

Load times are also abhorrent with cf, load to main menu 7 secs 1gpu, 14 secs with cf, training mission 12secs 1 gpu and omg 60! seconds in crossfire!!

Thanks for the advice, i was about to play this game.

At least it will not be a surprise.

What is the CFX GPU scaling in this game after this minor build?

I didn't play the battlefront beta for long (very very boring game), but i was running the game with CrossFire at 4K. I don't know if i used ARF-friendly mode or a profile from another Frostbyte engine 3 game (like BF hardline). I tried both, that's for sure.

I don't disagree with what you criticize at all. It's very valid criticism. But the way you carry yourself in your criticism I consider to be over-reacting over the simple details, like what you quoted acting as if the only change in the drivers is a single line concerning Black Ops III known issues.

The fact that we know the game is broken and yet to be fixed on any platform, regardless of the GPU setup used, means any dilly-dallying over whether SLi or CrossFire works, or even works properly, is pointless as the game struggles to even run properly on single GPUs.

That's in addition to previous correspondence between me and you regarding GTA V in which you stubbornly, flat-out refused to take certain considerations into account such as staying away from certain graphical settings known to bog down the game on any platform. You insist on the absurd sometimes and you know that.

And no, I'm not going to ignore your posts or report them to the mods, that's just childish if I were to do that. I'm just lamenting your lack of refinement in highlighting any potential issues, particularly to do with AMD. It's like you have a vendetta of some sort, which makes me wonder why you're hanging on to a pair of AMD cards honestly. If you're that annoyed, why not switch to Nvidia?

Also, regarding the issues I have with CrossFire. I don't. It's that simple. A broken turd of a game I do not buy. When I buy a game that runs so well on a single GPU and does not work on CrossFire, then I will be the one doing all the complaining for everyone. But I don't run into that situation often if at all, and by that I mean I can't remember the last time CrossFire itself gave me any serious issues of the sort.

Don't look at the version numbers as it's been proven (including by me) in the past that driver versions from AMD with the same number are NOT the same. Quite often the file once expanded are slightly different sizes which is an obvious giveaway, but they also may be the same size. If you do a file compare of them though, you will find they are different.

The difference is because the version numbers don't represent the actual build of a file, just a generalisation that the higher the number the later code wise the file is (although sometimes this isn't even the case!).

I have my days, like everybody i guess.

I don't play too much games lately but i started playing BO3 and don't like at all the flickering.

Not so broken it scales well here in CFX.

The problems i have with BO3 are related to HEAVY flickering in certain areas and tearing but honestly i guess this last one i could make it better with some work.

I don't live in the past. Do you?

I'm stubborn i must admit, i'm too old to change.

If you remember the GTA V affair lead to the DX11 API Overhead discussion/war, there more stubborn and less refined ppl than me fall from this forum.

Let us them RIP.

I'm not refined. What can i do?

If you are not reporting my posts i guess it's because there is nothing in them against the forum rules in the first place.

If i'm wrong please send me a PM, i don't like to be disrespectful to rules.

I don't care about potential issues in AMD drivers because there are too much real issues to be solved before.

This is not Chicago, AMD is not the Godfather and there is no mafia wars in here AFIK.

No vendetta from my side, this section of the forum is about AMD drivers and the fact is i'm not one of his workshipers (It has enough) who seems to NEVER have a single problem with drivers and only stubbornly praise AMD in face of reality.

I express my thoughts and sometimes i rant (i must admit) about this incomplete and on purpose (VSR...) feature mess we are getting from AMD as drivers.

I do it as an AMD GPU customer and share my opinion with other AMD GPU customers.

IDK you but i'm not rich and the 2 AMD GPUs and the custom WBs i have were not gifts.

They must serve me at least one more year until i can afford an upgrade.

I know you will not believe me but i REALLY want AMD improving his drivers and recovering market share.

I think the only way AMD has to recover some market is improving his drivers and working with game devs, with tricks or without.

Their hardware is powerful as a Ferrari but useless with a monkey as driver.

Nvidia monopoly will be the worst scenario for us gamers.

I hope there are enough stubborn ppl around to shake AMD corp heads to wake up and make things happen in dedicated GPU dep before the 18% market share they have make the dep no viable as business.

I want to be able to buy competitive AMD hardware with competitive AMD software in one year.

You are lucky to have a game taste who avoid by coincidence all Brokenworks and AMD not well supported CFX titles.

Could be very possible IDK, at least this lucky coincidence is way better than the "solution" i get the other day in here for the 4K VSR lock (and lack on purpose) in drivers:

Buy a 4K monitor.
