I've not encountered any issues with BO3 and a single 290 on 15.11. Capping frames off at 80 and smooth as butter.

Here is the issue yasamoka: go look at the last 5 beta cats and whql drivers. Count how many times they recommend turning off crossfire. Count how many times they fix crossfire. Now realize they no longer release updated crossfire profiles separate. So the only time we get crossfire fixes is once a month, so it is disheartening to see every month the same thing. I.e insert game name here exhibits flickering we recommend turning off crossfire.

Don't take that as me complaining, I'm just explaining the issue.

by the way crossfire works phenomenally well in Black Ops 3. I have a min frame rate of 168 and an average of 181fps with <1ms of deviation in frame times. That's at 1440p.

would you mind telling me where the performance issues start to kick in? I just started playing about an hour yesterday. Im not far and i spent a lot of time searching the cave in the first diner. But the performance was pretty decent so far with textures on ultra and god rays off. And whats that tessellation problem everybody talks about?

Lexington, Diamond city. With these drivers is mostly better, didnt noticed drops below 44fps, everything Ultra/1080p. My CPU and GPU are heavily overclocked and i still feel its limiting.

Dont forget to override tesellation mode in CCC (8X or 16X). It makes game so much smoother and you can run everything maxed with no difference in quality.

Fallout 4 everything maxed on 2560x1600 resolution: No FPS difference compared to previous drivers.

I tested in a situation which had massive FPS drop compared to normal 60fps.

These feel a bit smoother overall. But I'm capped at 60 anyways, so no real difference can be found anyways. Sometimes fps drops to 40 and gpu usage drops under 50%, but we all know what causes that. Everything on ultra, even godrays @ 1080p.

maybe he did, but as i noticed as of late, amd itself caps tessellation for certain games when using amd optimized settings. You will noticed that in the witcher 3 lately. If you leave the tessellation setting on amd optimized, and turn hairworks on, you will see that quality is lower than when you set it to application settings. This could be the case why people are seeing noticeable difference with this driver. I don't have fallout 4 and not really a fan of the series, but anyone welling to try it out with the new driver and see if there is a difference in quality and in performance between amd optimized tessellation and application settings would very nice of you.

that would be easy to prove.

just cap the tess at 16x manually.

If there is no improvement in FPS, they capped it in the profile.

guess that answers that question.

a couple of FPS is within margin of error.

In an overall test maybe but this seems to be a mostly static area. From 64x to 8x there's a 6% increase in FPS.

For Fallout 4, I use the Skyrim crossfire profile (TESV.exe) and both GPU's show over 90% utilization. Running in windowed borderless mode, god rays on high, not ultra, all else maxed out.
