    Wow secondary card not entering low power state. That's bad even for a beta driver. lol. So we have to wait yet another month for a driver that's most probably also going to suck.

    BTW have anyone tested this with BF?. Does mantle actually work on crossfire gcn 1.0 cards without massive stutters after a while making mantle 90% worse than directx? if mantle doesn't work good with my cards this time then mantle is a load of BS. Mantle is a good concept but badly executed and i though ok mantle will come and i got a pretty sweet deal on my cards but ATM it doesn't look like it was a good deal on the cards.

    If I have learned anything in 10 years of using graphics cards, it's never use a multi GPU setup because it sucks A$$. Better performance in benchmarks and synthetic environments but a pain to play you usual games with.
    More tearing effects, driver problems, artefacts, flickering, BSODs and obsolete in 2-3 years anyway when a newly released single GPU card will reach the same performance.

    Yeah but there is no card in the world that will give me 120fps 2560x1440 anyway.

    Maybe in 10 years time from now multi gpu will be much better but yeah. For now single gpu is better. I've learned it the hard way. AMD can say what about mantle and how good it is cause on many systems it still stutters like crazy. I still have to test this drivers out in BF4 cause I'm at work so can't test now. Will test as soon aas i get home. I hope this will help as I'm about to sell my cards if at least the next 2 drivers don't solve the issue. I tried everything from unparking cores to running windows 8.1, resetting bios back to defaults, changing cards around, uninstalling drivers using DDU and checking dpc and nothing can solve the stuttering with mantle. With Directx i'm getting almost 100% cpu usage in BF4. After a months wait they still have to many issues with it. i know it's in beta but still it's a pathetic attempt AMD.

    Same thing here in BF4 like in the previous versions of Mantle crap. Uber low performance with mantle enabled on a HD7850. So, yet another no HD7xxx driver support for mantle, I guess.

    WTF. No gcn1.0 driver support. This is unacceptable from AMD. I have the feeling AMD will not be here much longer. I know mantle is like free performance but if it worked right people will be like screw Nvidia we get much better and smoother performance. I know I'm crying a lot but i spend a fortune on my 2 cards and so far having a bad experience.

    Oh and I've checked no new mantle version in the driver so i suppose just added support for thief but still not old GCN1.0 cards.

    Confirm, no improvments in Battlefield 4 Mantle mode, on HD7870.
    Still no HD7000 correct support.
    I suppose, I will still wait another 3 month for drivers...

    What's bad? ULPS doesn't benefit you anyways. (If it does, then I apologize).

    What do you mean no improvements? What's the problem?

    What's the problem with you who say mantle doesn't work? Multi gpu users are understandable but single gpu should work.

    Mantle works fine on my 2x7970s...

    "No GCN1.0 driver support" lol. Right.

    maybe my issue is related to the amd pixle clock patcher or 2560x1440 or both. But can't wait to test mantle on my pc at home now. Is there any thing you did to make it work better?

    I'm using 2560x1440 110Hz.

    Nothing, just clean uninstall previous drivers.

    cool. Did the previous drivers work fine for you or did this actually fixed the issue? maybe your i7 is helping a bit due to more threads
