    Hmmm, all I get is the link to the 18.12.1.1 driver, which I've had installed a while back.

    What the hell are AMD doing with drivers?

    Still no SM6.1 barycentric semantics, although every GCN hardware is perfectly able to support them (in fact they support barycentric semantics on consoles and on pc with AGS).

    Two years to get tiled resources working (again) on khronos vulkan? Really?

    A letter to AMD: "Dear AMD, we've been consuming too much adrenalin lately, so it made us think we're already deep into the year 2019. Shell we try a little insulin for a change?
    Marry Christmas and Happy New Year!
    Your customers, from the first half of December 2018"

    Just a headsup, if you have MSI AB (or other 3rd party util like this) and after you've installed this driver, check to see if your custom fan speed is working or not. I'd to uninstall this driver because not only did custom fan in AB not work with this driver, it seemed to mess up my card's (gigabyte RX VEGA 64 Gaming OC) own fanspeed. Couldn't even run Heaven benchmark for a few seconds (during which temp went straight up) but even when temp hit 60C, the fans on my card didn't spin (I actually took a look at the physical card, as well as the sensor on GPUZ). when temp hit 69C after mere seconds into the benchmark, I'd had to quit. Yes, the fan was spinning but pretty slowly given the temp which exceeded 70C.

    Works no issue with RDV64. Have not tested any games yet, but fan curve is still there.

    No issues here with driver managed fan controls, but don't use third party utilities for custom fan control.

    No VSR on my 21:9 with my Fury X.
    I really wanted 5k 21:9 but up too 3840x1620 70hz works with CRU for me.
    So I do not know what the limitation with VSR is in the driver.
    Even 3840x1620 60hz worked on my R9 290x when I had it using CRU.

    I really want 5k for DX10/11 older titles since only geodasoto works with DX9.
    I really was wanting a Vega 56/64, but the VSR 21:9 5k makes it really tempting to just give in and get one.

    Anyone else have clocklock or overvolt issues with this driver as my card locks to state 7 after running 3dmark and overvolts too 1.292 which is very worrying.

    Update on this issue
    ----------------------------

    Afterburner --- causes overvolt issues when ran in conjunction with these drivers
    no scores to report due too voltage instabilities when used in conjunction with 18.12.2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Trixx --- does not have this issue and works without ANY issue with this driver
    1506mhz gpu
    2250mhz mem
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Wattman --- does not overclock as well as there is no voltage adjustment over 1200mv and does driver reset in heaven if gpu clock is past 1460mhz ,ram does clock all the way upto 2250mhz(9000mhz true) but does artifact

    1460mhz gpu
    2100mhz ram (no artifacts)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I've only run ~90 mins or so of 3DMark testing (primarily Time Spy) while I'm migrating my settings fully to WattMan but so far I haven't experienced anything like that on my Vega 56. Certainly a couple recoveries from pushing the card too hard but that was expected. :)
