    It could run at 200FPS for all I care, it will still micro-stutter like Far Cry 3.

    Oh god, FC3 did in fact micro stuttered like there was no tomorrow.

    SSD or not, it hitched like crazy.

    Yeah, i noticed today that my friend with 670GTX have alot less fps than my 280X.

    Stuttering is present but game is kinda playable with this driver.

    I think the stuttering in NBA2K15 is gone now.

    I just started playing FC3 a couple days ago.

    I didn't notice any stuttering so far except at the cinematic part at the very beginning of the game.

    I thought it was going to be horrible, but once I got out of the cage it was just fine.

    I'm having "Display driver has stopped working and has recovered" messages constantly with this driver, I can't even play Hearthstone because it crash when driver resets.

    I haven't tried many games yet but FC3 also crash randomly, I'm having more and more problems with every new driver.

    Great drivers as usual AMD. Still memory leak in BF4, and it now even crashes after a while.

    I've had it. Going to get a 970 tomorrow.

    any link that mirror driver? here 10kb/s ....

    understand something
    game optimized for amd = game works well on nvidia and amd
    game optimizer for nvidia = lag, crashes, nothing works right

    Could this mean there'll be a general improvement in crossfire for all ubisoft games? When I played assassins creed 3, I don't think I ever got much higher than 50% usage on each card, while hovering around 45 fps.

    Drivers running fine so far.

    Why every time there is a new driver thread, there are always many new posters saying they are going Nvidia or AMD sucks. Every single driver thread.

    It looks suspicious now.

    I guess if Far Cry 3 stutters, Far Cry 4 will. They do here. No idea what causes it or how to fix it.

    Because people expect new drivers to fix problems, not to make things worse.

    With 14.11.2 I added ACU.exe to the 3D settings under application settings and under AMD Crossfire X Mode I clicked on use AMD pre-determined profile and scrolled down under I found BF4 and used that profile to overwrite the existing ACU profile. This changed my frames on untra-high with 2x7970's from 15 fps up to 60-80 fps.

    so far with triple 29" Uwide with 2x 280x's, my experience isnt horrible...not ideal either..but thats also due to support from the SWare companies too, the odd driver glitch, nothings perfect.

    and no, reading this thread, I'll avoid this driver. :) anyone suggest a good driver that works well with Xfire?

    I havent played FC4 or AC because I knew they were gonna run like poo. DA I runs great on my system. No crashes or memory leak.
    Very happy so far.

    Changing the settings isn't the problem, unoptimized games is.

    Unfortunately I only had time for a round on a Final Stand server and 3 rounds on vanilla maps, two of which on the same map. Mantle CF clearly beats the s**t out of DX11 CF: on Siege of Shanghai after the building collapsed it maintained a constant 90+ FPS whereas DX11 would drop to 50 FPS with the exact same settings. Also the frametimes were really smooth, with no rough variations like DX11. Will need some more testing to determine if it is really fixed or not, I would say at least 4 different maps on the same server, preferably more as the memory leak is triggered after 2-3-4-5 map loads.

    DA:I really eats a ton of RAM when running Mantle CF, with Ultra settings and 4x MSAA when increasing the internal rendering resolution via the console command above 2400 x 1300 it would eat up all 4 GB of RAM (as displayed by Render.DrawScreenInfo 1). More than this resolution and you are screwed, the RAM fills up and massive stuttering begins. With render scale 1.0 on Ultra there is still some stuttering even though the RAM usage is about 3.6 GB. BTW, most BF4 console commands also work in DA:I.

    As for FC4, only played the first mission with the 1.3.0.0 patch and it seems semi-decent on High w/ SMAA, there is still some minor hitching, probably when stuff gets streamed from HDD to RAM. Installing to SSD might lower it but for the moment I have it on HDD. Not as bad as FC3 but CF is not yet on.
