    Has AMD been dissolved? Is their staff comprised of only volunteers? For a company trying to stay relevant, they're really doing a ****ing terrible job.

    why amd still doesn't have adaptive vsync option in CCC. Is it really so hard to code such feature? I went from nvidia to amd and this is the biggest downside for me.

    I just want a new system of updating crossfirex profiles, without updating whole driver. And i'm happy to see, that driver team have a new standart of quality.

    Absolutely this driver is amazingly good and I have no issues at 1400p with crossfire so stable and great, really great experience and smooth gameplay with minesweeper and solitaire. :banana:

    I had no issues using it with my HD 7950 crossfire before getting this R9 290.
    Only reason I want a new driver is too see if vsr works with mixed mode eyefinity.

    It works on all 3 monitors individually, but not in eyefinity.

    Still not having custom resolutions like nvidia, geodasato not supporting DX11 really sucks.

    Drivers are so overrated. We should just buy a new graphics card when a new game comes out (cards should ship with custom drivers). Easier for the likes of AMD and NVIDIA.

    Can already imagine the chaos of driver confusion and unofficial drivers now :p

    Then there's glorious Linux where you don't even have to worry about doing massive driver updates (when not using proprietary drivers anyway). My graphics stack updating includes typing two commands and rebooting. No previous-driver cleanup regiment, no downloading 200MB+ driver packages, no re-setting up GPU stuff after an update, and best of all, no waiting weeks/months for driver updates (daily updates ftw).

    Process isn't as fun when you get AMD's proprietary driver involved though, but there's little reason/scenarios to even use it for the most part.

    And just in-case anyone's confused by that; there's basically two means of graphics support under Linux (for both AMD and NVIDIA). Can either use the open-source drivers/stack (nice and easy to maintain, can have lower performance in some scenarios), or proprietary drivers (the main AMD driver or aka fglrx). There is no real cut-and-dry answer as to which driver you should use (fglrx is actually rather problematic in some scenarios, whereas open-source is fine), but non-GCN hardware should probably ignore fglrx entirely.

    To compare it to Windows; it's basically the difference between using the out-the-box Windows driver (in cases where your GPU is supported and works well) vs Catalyst. Although on Windows, in most cases you'd want to install the proprietary driver.

    Could go on even further about this and some other graphics-stuff on Linux, but I'm not sure if anyone really cares :p

    This driver works fine. Windows Update does provide a newer driver though; so if you do install this driver, make sure to keep an eye on the driver version in-case WU updates it randomly; or alternatively, just disable automatic driver updates.

    Hope next driver will improve CPU utilisation.

    I'm pretty sure not.
    They were trying to employ someone the other week for that effect.
    That work isn't done in 1 week.
    I expect to see results in 1 year or 6 months

    They were waiting for you to complain on Guru3D forums, now they'll probably get released within the next twelve hours.

    You know what, I'm going to agree, it's taking AMD an awful long time to release these drivers. But what's the point of complaining now? Maybe the wait will be worth it? Maybe they've finally fixed a lot of the issues we have had over the past and are adding a few new features and need to make sure they're polished and working.

    Complaining now won't make them come out faster, but if and when the drivers come out, if they turn out to be some random ordinary drivers with barely any improvements and fixes and are dated end of January or beginning of February. Then I'd be one of the first people complaining. But complaining now isn't going to get them released faster. I think our reactions should collectively be saved for after the release. They wouldn't take this long for no reason, there must be a reason for it.
