    Polaris has new registry keys:
    HKR,, DisableFBCForFullScreenApp, %REG_SZ%, 1
    I guess FrameBufferCheck. Probably no longer needed to do it via driver.

    and has:
    HKR,, EnableSlsSupport, %REG_DWORD%, 0x1C
    HKR,, DisablePowerGating, %REG_DWORD%, 1
    (same as Tonga, but Fiji does not have this)


    Does not Have:
    HKR,, StutterMode, %REG_DWORD%, 0x2002

    Installed My Fiji as Polaris10. Performance went down. Compute was horrid. Utilization all over place.

    Then I added registry entries for Fiji and altered those different from Polaris10 to Fiji.
    Performance got bit better but still quite worse than 16.6.1.

    Then I did uninstall and clean install of 16.6.2, same performance as with Fiji registry.
    Do not like this driver at all. Does not give any advantage, anything new.

    I wonder if Polaris 10 has actually lower performance than it would have with proper driver too.
    Fiji release driver was so bad that I installed it card as HD7970 and it performed better than any reviewed card as I got better utilization.
