    Are you sure of this increase in frame rates? In min, average or both?

    I was going to pass this drivers, but I play a lot of WOT and 10+ fps is a huge leap, specially strange with no mention of it in the release notes...

    Thanks for the settings suggested above, but they barely impacted on 3DMark results for me (if at all, because results are within margin of error).

    Comparison Results (Left = Your Settings) & (Right = AMD Default) -

    All tests done using the latest 15.11 Drivers.

    Yep Tweaks are Working ;-)
    I know, cuz i'm using It for a long Time.
    Best Results can be achieved with Tweaks + RP Tweaks together.

    These confirm my results from earlier I believe... That there is definitely an improvement in API Overhead, noticeable mostly with the MULTI-Thread between 15.10 and 15.11 (around 6%).

    We still need more tests to verify. Because right now it's improvements for 2 people, and 1 person falling within the margin of error.

    EDIT:

    I decided to leave 3DMark and test these above suggested tweaks with the Witcher 3 instead...

    I ran around the City of Novigrad (heavily populated), and fast traveled to Crow's Perch and ran around that town, and then finally fast traveled out of Novigrad and Velen and went running from Kaer Trolde Harbor to the Bridge of Kaer Trolde.

    These three areas definitely had micro-stuttering, which has significantly decreased (only at the start, after the loading screen when fast-travelling it micro-stutters because it's loading the textures, after that running in between the crowds was smooth for the first time).

    Sadly though I did not test without the tweaks with 15.11 so it could be just the driver, rather than the tweaks. Maybe a combination of both.

    :)

    One of the maps has me get from 19fps to 30fps at most, but other maps has less increase in frame rates, overall the performances are better from what I have experienced. Oh and by the way I am playing with all graphics settings topped.

    Another confirmation that there is DX11 API Overhead improvements with these drivers. But for you it's opposite to my results; in that ST is +6% and MT is +2%, while mine was the other way around.

    So as it stands:

    3 people have noticed +
    1 person has noticed no difference (within margin of error).

    Yes. Same as previous drivers. Stutters all over the place.

    Wouldn't you be the perfect tester as CrossFire has more hiccup than one card setup, so I'd imagine you seeing the difference at Witcher 3 more clearly.

    Been holding myself to test in case someone Furious shows something, but I doubt I can wait much longer.. :nerd:

    And all three people who've noticed improvements use GCN 1.0 cards.

    My 3d mark dx11 score with a old i5 760@3.8Ghz and a 7950 :

    15.10 : ST= 867 582 / MT= 722 464
    15.11 : ST= 877 539 / MT= 859 995

    I have to found why 3Dmark run only at my gpu stock speed , not at my oc.
