    So Driver Fusion is not doing the job any more? I did notice that upon loading CCC the Texture Quality Preset was already on HIGH whereas normally its on normal. I did have it set to HIGH manually previously.

    How does one know whether this driver contains mantle support or not? I heard a rumor that mantle in BF4 comes out today - probably not true though!

    These have frame pacing as an option, these the first WHQL with frame pacing enabled?

    If you go on the sapphire website, you can download it for all of the AMD cards.

    I knew it, you allway's can count on AMD for these kind of jokes..
    :bang: :rolleyes::cussing: Only possible with AMD software...it's unbelievable,.. where these guy's are with their heads, in fact, they aren't gamers for sure...

    They break the most elementary things which where solved just past the stoneage...

    And with this we have to do it for another month? Well defenetly not...if I see no proper driver before X-mas holyday's, I get rid of this trash (only due that incompetent driverteam)...

    Same for me, but the driver has the right build number so I really don't think that it matters.

    I'm just waiting for mantle man, and I'm sure that will improve BF4 at least quite substantially, especially in crossfire since it can use each card independently.
    But yeah I just switched from NVIDIA and the AMD drivers are worse in literally every single way. Windows feels laggier, games have stuttering problems and Vsync is FUBAR. IDK what to say...

    You can send the cards to me. I would be glad to free you of "this trash". :)

    Same here, is it just a typo or are the driver number BS?!
    Maybe Sapphire mistake a Beta as WHQL?!

    Cheers!

    What a shame. The last AMD cards I had were 7850's in Xfire, it was a stutter fest. Got rid of them a long time ago for 2x EVGA GTX 670 FTW's and now I have 2x MSI GTX 770 Lightnings. The 670's went to my twin boys. The new R9 290's had me curious but reading your post confirms my biggest worry.

    Many Catalyst versions in the past had the same display ver problem, even after a clean OS installation.

    The solution
    1.regedit
    2.search the following "catalyst_version"
    3.change it ;)

    It still doesn't make sense.
    Probably a typo... but we will never know until it's official.

    I was really exaggerating a little in that post. Many games run much better than before (with nvidia) and perfectly, it is just some bugs in the drivers than I'm sure will be fixed later which are the problem. There is no microstuttering with crossfire that is perceptible to me - rather there is just a problem with vsync and crossfire on the hawaii cards at the moment which causes this stutter and audio distortion on anything past the 13.11 beta 9.2 driver, so it is obviously just a recently-introduced bug. This makes games with forced vsync like skyrim run crappily. Other games also have some problems like AC black flag, which nvidia obviously paid them to cripple on the AMD cards because there is no reason why it runs so much better on my 680s than these r9 290s. I also had many problems with NVIDIA drivers in the past though, as well as the fact that their cards simply have too little VRAM when playing at 1440P upwards.
    Anyway yeah, I'm sure the non-reference cards would be amazing after some driver updates, and the release of mantle :p

    True, the only real difference I´ve seen so far is that the smoke-flicker
    I had until now in 3DMark`s Fire-Strike is gone in CFX and since BF 4
    is broken for now I can`t comment on that!

    Cheers!
