    Try the GameTime.MaxVariableFps 59.94 This gives me pretty much straight lines on CPU and smooth GPU frame rates.
    It is advisable to delete the 2 MantlePipelinecache files from the BF4 folder in your 'Documents' folder when you are upgrading the Mantle version (or a GPU upgrade). These files are initially created on first startup of Mantle in BF4. When starting the BF4 game after a Mantle version update, the new Mantle version is loaded using the cached files from the old Mantle version. Could be incompatibilities/corruption causing issues. Best to delete the old cached files and let game recreate them using the new Mantle version.

    You do realize that the your number 1 fastest consumer gpu brand did the same thing when they released their own VSR you twat. It was only available for high end cards, just as AMD is doing it now

    Before you come trolling these forums how about you do a little something called research!

    VSR will be supported by the entire R-series in future driver updates. Today's Omega driver only supports "Stage One" of VSR, and there will be more functionality added in the future.

    http://www.pcgameshardware.de/AMD-R...pecials/Catalyst-Omega-Test-Download-1144699/
    (German)

    Google translate:

    "With VSR can now activate comfortable in the driver and AMD users downsampling. The technique differs somewhat from Nvidia DSR and is currently still therefore with some restrictions. Thus, the maximum resolution is so far determined by both display and graphics card settings as for the filter are not (yet) available. On request AMD insured against us, however, that these restrictions would be eliminated with upcoming driver updates. VSR in the Catalyst Omega should be understood as "Stage One", that is the first stage of development. For example, 4K downsampling to be supported for all Radeon R models in the future"

    They need to fix VSR

    it only supports all resolutions in 2 aspect ratios
    and completely ignores people with ultra wide monitors or 21.9 aspect ratios.....
    and there is no way to set custom its pretty **** at the minute so those people without it need not worry as its not doing anything infact its doing less than what you can do with CRU and its been out for ages. and also no 4k resolution pfft.

    Its becoming playable for me with this driver. 30-40fps Ultra, fxaa on a single 280X. First time i tried ACU it was in low 25's.

    Ugh. Horrific drivers for R9 285 - Alien Isolation still crashes with DoF enabled (works fine on the HD 5870 with the same drivers), Evil Within is completely unplayable (all menu options invisible) - I have to roll back to the 14.30.1005's to run anything reliably - very disappointing. When did AMD get so bad? My 5870 gave me years of gaming bliss..???

    You need to understand I'm not a hater. Three out of my last three cards were/are AMD.

    As I said, I shouldn't be that mad about it, but it is touted like a major upgrade for everyone, and in the end the only thing we get is not even a registry toggle.

    It's just kinda disappointing.

    I've completely uninstalled the driver with DDU in safe mode and rebooted.

    Still I have flash player crashes on youtube with hardware acceleration, Civilization crashes with Mantle, I don't see any of the new video enhancing options(I did toggle the force checkbox a few times) and I can't make use of the virtual super resolution option..

    Any idea what to do to get this thing to work on my 290? or should I just reinstall Windows again :/

    what OS? check the file you downloaded and make sure it matches.

    When was the last time you updated your creative drivers? they have a reasonably new beta.

    most of the new video options are only for 285, only a couple are for 290.

    980/970 owners can only brag about power efficiency cause perf is barely better than cards over a year older

    what a deal, i can't believe nVidia's prices are so competitive!

    You are the kind of dick that makes people like me with legitimate complaints look like asses.

    Give these settings a try in your userCFG if you haven't already.

    RenderDevice.TripleBufferingEnable 1
    RenderDevice.ForceRenderAheadLimit 1

    I use those with vsync on + limiting fps to screen refresh rate.. also using mantle and it is smooth as butter for me.

    I hope you are correct. AMD reaped benefit by rebranding those cards R9. I hope they realize that they now have some responsibility to those of us that bought these "new" cards.
    I've read where they said they are going to support this feature on all R9 cards. But I also see where they try not to mention the 280 and 280X when they talk about R9 cards... :) Same for 270 and 270X.

    AMD stated in one of their new video's on youtube that VSR is releasing "first" on the higher end cards.. which implies it will come later to some of the lower end cards.
