I can second this. Really nothing to report, it just works and well.
Bad driver for me, caused serious instability issues while playing high definition videos using gpu assisted madvr, also serious instability issues with some games...
the 13.4 whql release, however, is very stable. I went with the modded version you can find on this forum
The 13.5 B2 driver breaks my second monitor with Crossfire enabled. 13.4 WHQL works perfectly.
Using 2x MSI 7850 OC cards, with both monitors plugged into card 1. Monitor 2 is plugged in via HDMI and Monitor 1 is plugged in via DisplayPort with a VGA adapter (this is the monitor that breaks).
I honestly haven't felt a big difference between any driver since 13.2 beta 3. These are fine so far.
I actually switched back to 13.2 beta 6, never tested beta 3 tbh. There is a difference, at first I thought those are better, but after some longer testing, I found that 13.2 beta 6 don't have stutters in some parts of the games I play compared to those new one, they have, and 13.1 have etc. So, back to perfection with 13.2 beta 6 for me.
got some problems in black ops II cursor flickering 7850m
I got this also, but only when using radeonPRO...
Removed it from PC solved the prob. for me
There is a fix for this. Check the radeonpro thread
Sometimes when launching Battlefield 3 (Multiplayer) through Battlelog, the drivers decide to crash and recover, this happens very often, and it's the only game they fail at ... Sometimes Arma 2 as well but that's VERY rare.
Does anyone get this as well with Battlefield 3? Once I get into the game I can play just fine, but sometimes I have a hard time opening the game without a driver crash.
I have the same problem.
Good to know I'm not alone, anyone else?
I was afraid one my 7970 could be faulty, but it works fine in-game and other games too, it just fails at launching BF3 sometimes... :wanker:
Thanks for replying!
Welp, it looks like us AMD users were left in the dark in the new Metro: Last Light game. Performance is utter **** for AMD users based on preliminary benches that have come out. *facepalm*
Let's see. This is an TWIMTP game and the only card that can hold 60 fps maxed out at 1080p (not really maxed out mind you because that's with SSAA off) is a Titan, Nvidia's 1000 USD offering. Also, a 660ti edges out a 7970GE? An OC'ed 7970 should be getting at least midway between the 680 and the Titan.
Saves me having to buy it then. I'll wait till it's on offer on Steam.
Its most likely a CPU stability/ram problem unless you are getting a display driver crash.
Metro is more of an Nvidia benchmarking tool anyways. It's not even that good of a FPS.
Besides, since it is a TWIMTBP game it's going to take AMD a little longer for their driver team to optimize for it. When the game is 10 bucks, I'll pick it up.
looks like il only get 43.9 fps, il probaly end up locking the game to 30fps.
Yeah, it seems that AMD have more 'fair' approach with Gaming Evolved, but again, this is first time I see Nvidia with such a big difference.
I'm not talking about BSOD, I'm talking about a display driver crash, and only when LAUNCHING Battlefield 3, once I get in-game I can play fine for hours.
