    All DirectX9 games I play (Half Life2, Mass Effect series, Skyrim, Oblivion, etc) run flawlessly.

    I don't know about this problem you guys have. Maybe you're overclocking too hard or something?

    Funny thing is while I had a Nvidia card I had nothing but different driver issues to deal with. Certainly, some games ran better on that card than its AMD counterparts but I also had some that were completely unplayable for weeks until Nvidia sorted them out. Grass is always greener and all that.

    The one driver problem I continuously had for years when on a 8800GTS SSC edition card and continued on a GTX 460 card was display driver stopped and has recovered crashes.. while doing nothing more than using a web browser.

    While I understand people getting frustrated with driver problems, both brands have separate issues of various sorts relating to different aspects of the video card...

    If you are having a hard time with one brand, by all means try the other, no one is stopping you from doing so.

    -----

    And a question.. of sorts..

    These 14.8 WHQL's are still not up on the AMD website, it is still showing 14.4's

    Is there a reason for this?

    Theoretically, they are APU drivers.

    Can someone that plays Diablo 3 tell me how their performance is with this driver? I swear it makes the game even more of a stutter fest.

    Looks like it is the launch driver for the new R9 285. Maybe it is in the box with card?

    Here you go:

    ht t p: //support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/R9-285-Catalyst-Software.aspx

    PD : When going to find it, this drivers is in a exclusive category for 285, for the rest of R9 2XX it still appears 14.4 and 17.3

    I wonder if linux version, after patching, would work with kernel 3.17. I will try to patch it later xD

    Downloading now windows version and will install it within seconds.



    After quick test: i tried to install this driver but it appears to be supporting only tonga gpu, nothing more, nothing less, at least that's what i've found in its .inf files. I think after modification it might be working with other gpus as well. Could someone modify it to add support for other cards? I have been modifying drivers years ago but i have no idea how to make mod properly working with windows 8.1 :D

    I wish i would get this infamous youtube bsod xD I'm testing every driver and never get this.

    Martin, try to update your adobe flash to latest beta, available here:
    http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html
    and check if you will get youtube bsod again.

    Flash player bluescreen is an old ancient AMD bug, not just from these drivers

    Disable Hardware Acceleration in flash player, job done

    I wonder how many more weeks will it take to get an official driver.

    In my experience mantle can already bring significant benefit even with a cpu thats not 'low end' too, particularly when it comes to minimum framerate:

    I've got an i5-2500 (not exactly high end these days, but still pretty decent and a lot faster than an amd apu), and I get a huge boost in minimum framerates in battlefield 4 when using mantle. In DX11 bf4 seems to hit draw call bottlenecks pretty quickly even with an intel cpu, and I get huge framerate drops just looking towards certain parts of the map, here's a quick video comparison I made, hanai resort 64p multiplayer:

    DX11: Framerate plummets to 40-55 simply by looking towards the tower in the middle of the map, and gpu usage also drops significantly to ~60% https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aX-RttfiI2o

    Mantle: Framerate stays smooth at 70-90 fps, gpu usage remains consistent 98-100% https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hw6aT2IMeI

    This is with a single gpu (amd 280x)
