    I don't understand... The date for the drivers has been announced for 19th of March and confirmed by Matt... The question keeps getting answered twice every page as to when they're being released. People don't even want to read the page they're on or the last page or so before commenting these days. But yes, clearly, we're the "trolls".

    Be cool, just had tuesday´s crazy minute when posting ;)

    I already :puke2: ´d my opinion on the delay in terms of CFX, now I´m waiting patiently for AMD to rock my gaming experience by magic HW-SW translation power, and prevent me from using my second card as a pinball.

    I hope the new driver improves performance with Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition. Right now I get much better performance using a GTX 670 than with a R9 290! o_O

    That ain't right.

    No, it's not weird at all.
    That there are people looking for a release date who will not bother browsing through 64 pages of thread called
    AMD Catalyst 14.12 Omega WHQL (14.501.1003.0 November 20)

    I remember seeing 19th somewhere, and also I'm reasonably satisfied with current driver.
    But if I wasn't, I'd drop a question here, why not.

    Yeah.. Something it's not right for you, but I have 50/60+ fps all the time at 1080p and all ultra settings including smaa/aa..

    P.S. When the new drivers will come? lol I'm joking, I know it's March 19, but it's just so much time between 14.12 and 15.3 :3eyes:

    I get a rock solid 60fps at 1080p using a GTX 670 all setting maxed AA on normal. With the 290 performance is shocking but only in the day time. At night I can max the game and get a completely solid 60fps at 1440p but in the day not even lowing the res down to 720p can help. All other games are fine, including regular Sleeping Dogs, all other benchmarks are giving me the correct numbers. I tried a fresh install of Windows. Something's up with the driver optimization.

    I don't have Sleeping Dogs, but have you tried to use RadeonPro to spoof another game profile?

    No. I do use RadeonPro but have never done that.

    Wouldn't a software solution work and isn't that kinda how Nvidia does DSR on older hardware?
    (Would also help the GCN 1.1 cards like the 290/290X to go above 2560x1600 on 16:10 and 3200x1800 on 16:9 with VSR, or so I guess.)

    Unsure how that scaler works though or if it's for performance reasons or something else as it seems a bit limited on older hardware though apparently the R9 280 does have a few upgrades over the 7970 so those will be supported but again it's down to that scaler thing in the GPU.


    EDIT: Still it would seem that the March 19th drivers are more focused on FreeSync than VSR with this being FreeSync phase 1 and in April they hope to release phase 2 for freesync with Crossfire support.
    (Unsure what's planned for VSR but besides VSR and Freesync there's probably several Crossfire profiles and other bug fixes but that's also just a guess as we won't know until it gets released next week though I hope this somewhat longer development period has been worth it in terms of driver quality or how to say.)

    The same old story again. You should always buy AMD cards for the future benefits (when the software side grows up enough to unleash their potential), not for the present if they happen to fall behind the competition at the time. Then a few years later your future proof AMD card proves to be equally or even less future proof than those from the competition which were supposed to be doomed by then or sooner.
    My last favorite: Fermi gets DX12 support (even if it comes with certain limitations and some delay) but the HD 5 and 6 series don't, thus buying a HD5 shortly before Fermi or a HD6 after Fermi was indeed a bulletproof choice if you wished to live in this future.

    Was never murky as far as I know. AMD has mentioned VSR would be coming to other cards, others being some R7 cards I think. There was never mention of it coming to 7xxx series from what I can recall.

    In my opinion it was a "financial" reason for not including DX12 support for the HD5/6 series. Sure the architecture is different to the 7 series but something tells me that this gen was just discarded in conjunction with the driver team that stayed behind from the ATI days.

    Hopefully AMD sorts out the current issues for Windows 10 and their drivers for 5xxx/6xxx mobility devices. The constant back and forth between 15.2 and 14.8 is getting tiresome.

    So I guess software vsr is not possible with older cards:puke2:

    it's possible but they made sure that that software doesn't work anymore so they would gain exclusivity and control over which product gets what.
