    but seriously. We can't accept such things. Cards should run and perform well at stock speed. Where is this leading at when we have to downclock our cards.

    I can confirm that Left 4 Dead 2 is having a bad time struggling with these drivers with random squares in 2D (10x10) instead of proper smoke when shooting zombies or whatnot.

    Dear n00b,

    1) Did you ever take the ambient temperature into consideration when you suddenly noticed the jump in your temperatures? Most people downright ignore it, and suddenly starts yelling that their cards are overheating due to drivers, which simply isn't the case.

    2) I can clearly see that you don't know how to read, and in my post I have clearly stated that I am apologizing to those who own legit games and are having issues, and I even went as far to say that the issues do exist and that something else could be triggering them. I did read that by reverting back to an older driver, the issue seemed to have been fixed for some. But while owning the same GPU (HD 7850 in this case, you seem to own one from your gadget list) if a certain driver combination causes issues for one user, and works perfectly fine for another, then it could only mean that it's not the driver, but something else is triggering the issue for the user who's experiencing glitches or artifacts. And I think I have stated this too that I have played through some of the titles that were claimed to be affected by artifacts from numerous sources, and didn't face any!

    3) The piracy thingy is indeed a concern, when you see folks flooding the forums complaining about a game that runs choppy on AMD GPUS while the game is yet to be released officially (like Watch_Dogs, the forums were flooded with complaints before the game was even officially released) AMD's drivers aren't the best, but aren't as bad as some people make them out to be. I have seen people moan about AMD dropping support for Windows 8 in their recent drivers, now why would you still be on Windows 8 if you have a free upgrade path to Windows 8.1? Guess I will never know. :nerd: Too lazy to download a torrent, maybe?

    And one more thing, I think I have used PCs way longer than you to be called a n00b, I still own a fully working Pentium II 450 Mhz coupled with an AOpen 440BX motherboard which works flawlessly with Windows ME and Windows 2000 and is mostly used to teach kids how to use the MS OFFICE and the other basics. As I have said, I am a part time miner, who is also focused on gaming. While you are busy ripping AMD a new one by cursing their driver team I brought home two more cards, A Sapphire R9 280X Vapor-X OC 3GB, and a Gigabyte Windforce R9 290 4GB, running on a freshly installed OS with all the updates on a system coupled with a Core i7 950 and a Gigabyte X58, and I have no issues on that pc with these cards whatsoever with the same games people are nagging about, because unlike some of the ignorant n00bz that fill their PCs with bloatwares, I keep my system clean. 3rd party GPU tools, often cause more problems than you could ever imagine, even AMD's savior Radeon PRO makes gaming unstable at times.

    And just for the record, I am just one person. I can't be noobs

    Or like having 2 girlfriends, but can only handle 1 at a time.
    EDIT: You didn't provide any numbers to compare or GPU/CPU usage stats so I can't tell.

    Just wanted to say that the 14.6 and 14.7 beta drivers definitely increase GPU temps.

    I've had a Gigabyte Windforce R9 290 for about 2 months now and when I installed it I first installed the 14.6 beta drivers. Then the 14.7 beta drivers. Both gave me about the same GPU temps.

    Yesterday, I ran a driver cleaner and did a clean install of the 14.4 drivers. My idle temps are now about 5 degrees lower and my load temps are about 8-10 degrees lower. I still score identical numbers in benchmarks (except in the Tomb Raider benchmark where I lost 1 fps off my average compared to 14.7).

    Going to be sticking with 14.4 until AMD can remedy the heat issue with their newer beta drivers.

    Recently purchased a reference Sapphire R9 290X, coming from SLI GTX 550Ti's. 14.4 was giving me all sorts of hell with blackscreens and BSODs.

    Uninstalled cleanly and reinstalled into 14.7 RC3 and it seemed like every bad thing went away.

    Can't really explain why, and it certainly doesn't speak for everyone else's accounts.

    That's just my two cents.

    Oh on side note, for Sapphire owners, if you update to 14.7 RC3, you'll notice your TRIXX software fan profiles start to work better, even though MSI Afterburner uses the same API and the performance for it didn't change.

    In my case, I didn't have any problem with the drivers, but I still had to copy the dlls to GTA Vice City folder to play it without the rare stretching textures that seems to appear in some games, especially DX9 games.

    These drivers work good for me.
    I tested with Sniper Elite 3,Risen 3,Civ V,Sniper Elite v2.Only issues are in Nfs Rivals:mountains have some glitches and insane flickering.
    In 14.4 i have problems in Civ V when at any refresh rate after playing about ~10 min the screen has "restarted" and apear screen tearing.
    But by far the best drivers for me(i never be a beta drivers fan) are 14.3 beta_b22_march12.

    Actually I had the Origin In Game on, so after disabling it my numbers are back to similar to the single card setup I had earlier.

    98-200fps, which is +10fps on both ends.

    Overall, they're an Ok driver... a couple of FPS gained on watch dogs, AC4 and lichdom but they reintroduced the 'black screen after sleep' for me.

    I am having BSODs when watching youtube flash videos. Not sure if it's driver cause but it started to happen after 14.7 RC3.

    Error code is 0x00000124

    that is VERY interesting. I got a 0x124 some weeks ago while using 14.4 i never found out where it came from. I came to the conclusion that it was due the fact that i tried 3 different GPU-OC Tools the day before because my System is/was rock solid without overclocking for over 2 years. So it might be some bug in the driver.
    However keep in mind that 0x124 also could be CPU overclocking or bad ram.

    Yeah I have OC'ed my CPU and tightened latencies of my RAM. I have always running iTurbo at background. But it happened two times in 30 min when watching youtube videos. I have now disabled HW Acceleration. Let see if BSODs come back again.

    Edit. So far no BSODs :)
