just a curious question why AMD didn't release the driver officially yet ?
...why would you make a thread without a question mark, and why would you ask on a forum where the only speculated answers can be given? :bang:
Edit: Just noticed the post icon had a question mark, but still, why not have one in the title? This thread can be easily misinterpreted as being a 14.4 release thread.
Probably as its just a very minor update of the 14.3s.
considering it fixed the power limit, id say it was more than just miinor...
Yeah, also, the driver branch/series is completely different:
14.4 = 22.214.171.124
14.3 = 13.350.1005
I just hope we get those GCN 1.0 Mantle optimizations. Come on AMD.
The current 14.4's are for 295x2 support. The real next released driver should have more significant changes.
These 14.4 (whatever you want to call them- beta's or pre release) gave my 2 x HD 7970 a noticeable improvement in BF4 running Mantle. Only had a chance for 2 quick looks at 2 maps so far. Will test more today, but seems like my cpu spikes have abated and my gpu output is a hell of a lot smoother.
Got the New Drivers off 14.4 all good but every time i restart my pc i get a pink screen and if i unplug the HDMI Cable it will fix the issue. Using 2 x HD 7970 Asus
