    How does Unity run on one card?

    I really want to buy it, but i'm afraid my performance will be horrible.

    No VSR support here either, running 1680x1050 monitor. :(

    This was the only thing that i was hyped about.

    You misunderstood me. The 90% are those that don't have the new R cards that support the new features. I don't want a new CCC GUI every driver update, but they are bragging like Omega is something brand new and fantastic, when in reality, it's nothing like that.

    They probably finally got around to removing support for Windows 8. You best update to Windows 8.1 because if you select Windows 8 from their driver selection menu, it shows Catalyst version 14.4...

    With my system, it went from 24-28 fps to 44-60 in the same scene with the exact same settings. I was actually amazed. It was a very demanding scene at that, with hundreds of people protesting.

    The settings were:

    Environmental Detail: Very High
    Shadows: High
    Ambient Occlusion: HBAO+
    Antialiasing: OFF (I have FXAA ultra through Radeon Pro)
    Bloom: On

    It's playable for me with everything on ultra and FXAA for AA. No VSync, of course...

    They do it because they put a lot of work into code and improved their testing method for different HW configurations.

    I personally do not know why this name (omega), and why now. But that is none of my business anyway.

    Even if those improvements/fixes are not touching you and me, we can still appreciate work done for others.

    That s why I want to see APU and APU+dGPU tests.

    That's my point. It's just another driver.

    The R9 285 currently is the only card with GCN 1.2, and the only card which fully supports VSR.

    The GCN 1.1 (R9 290(X)) cards only supported limited VSR resolutions.

    The GCN 1.0 cards currently do not support VSR.

    And we know the GCN 1.2 got an updated hardware video scaler, and was also updated to VCE 3.0, GCN 1.1 has VCE 2.0, and GCN 1.0 VCE 1.0. UVD was also updated with every GCN release.

    So as I said, I suspect it has something to do with the hardware scaler also used for video display/encoding.

    Well Far Cry 4 does not run a single fps better, just the same..

    35-44fps, and sometimes up to 55fps.

    Same. Far Cry 4 handles the same with 1.5 and Omega.

    Hey AMDMatt,

    Are the chipset drivers included in this package, or do they need to be downloaded and installed separately? If so, in which order?

    Thank you.

    I believe Hilbert has explained the differences on the previous page.

    Thank you both for bringing this to my attention.

    I performed few very basic tests on my pc to compare performance between 14.11.2 Beta and 14.12.

    Config, in short, is fx-8320 at stock clocks, r7 260x 1GB and 16GB of DDR3 1333MHz. Sorry for tests at such low resolution (1280x1024, still higher than at most games on next-gen consoles), just temporary i'm using old CRT display.

    14.11.2 Beta
