    Yes looks like driver issue, since its nvidia game and all..:nerd:
    Well it played fine here, it used all my vram 3050mb as well, then settled ~ 2.9gb, no stutters. Ok I saw 1mini stutter at beginning and that was it.

    Wow this is totally strange....id been stuck on 13.12 for a long time now as every 14.x set (beta or whql)i tried has had one or more issue that's always forced me back to 13.12,some times after a few days sometime within just a few hours,those issues have been either one or all of the following (ive bitched about & reported to AMD them all more that once)

    Blank screens on cold boots/restarts
    Blanks screen on wake from sleep
    Increased heat in idle/3d
    Dx9 poly/texture corruption
    Dx9 stuttering
    Flash HW BSOD
    Sticking 3d clocks
    Lower stable max OC's

    But ive been running these 14.9.2 BETA for over a week now and i haven't seen a single one of the above issues....I installed them no differently than any other 14.x sets (safe mode/DDU/reboot install reboot reset AB) and all my AB clocks/voltage/fan profiles are just the same as they been for all the other 14.x drivers i ended up uninstalling to roll back to 13.12.

    Only issue i have so far that's not present in 13.12 is that these wont allow me to OC my monitor to 75hz under 2560x1080,it now blanks out at anything over 60hz (native res is 2560x1440 60hz which i can still OC upto 120hz using atikmdag-patcher-1.2.7/CRU)

    2560x1080 isn't a res i use a lot (not a lot of support for it i find) so these are keepers for me atm,i just wonder if i'll be stuck with these for almost another 12 months like i have been with 13.12.....

    AMD drivers.........Voodoo magic man.....F**kin Voodoo magic......

    well except the 14.7 betas and temperature rise problem, no other problems whatsoever with AMD drivers, 14.9.2 is no exception

    after about a week or so, i also got the strange issue of monitor not waking out of monitor-sleep. Oh well, back to 14.4 again.

    In case anyone is wondering, it's on win8.1 pro x64 fully updated.

    Haha Yep ive fallen fowl in the past of making posts saying everything is golden only to have it spazz out an hour later ;)

    Ive even walked off AMD's well beaten benchmark path trying many games well outside of there tweaked/fixed profiles and still haven't come across any problems (just finishing up Marvel lego running with GeDoSaTo at 4k)

    That said i don't have any of the current batch of A-AAA titles yet (AI/Ryse/SOM ect) that's because i

    1. have a massive backlog to get through
    and
    2.since returning to AMD 2 years ago and knowing just how slow they can be to fix issues/optimize i no longer buy anything until its been out for 8-10 months and has been patched/driver fixed. 9/10 its also in a sale by then

    Ive pissed away to much money in the past waiting for fixes/patches only to see the same games reduced to 1/2-1/3 of the cost while they've been unplayable.

    If these Drivers do fall over i can just roll back to 13.12 to clear some of my backlog,by then hopefully the 970ti (or what ever full fat maxwell will be called) will be out so i can get some 4k DS working outside of a 3rd party DX9 only fix....doesn't look like AMD are going to play ball with official support DSR/DS any time soon.

    Nvidia just brings 344.60 WHQL for CoD Advanced Warfare and WHERE IS AMD? Why the hell AMD is always so late with everything?

    Does it not run on your card? Have you even tried it?

    Do you have a CF setup? If not, and the game runs, they why complain. Sure there may be some performance fixes down the line, but that doesn't mean that AMD needs to release a driver that specifically names CoD Advanced Warfare.

    Perhaps Nvidia needed it whereas AMD did not:banana:

    I think the game itself needs patching for some things, but overall runs great on a single 7950.

    Triple buffering helps a lot with Skyrim.

    I gave up on them after a few months when many of the driver versions seemingly became arbitrarily assigned and i couldn't tell new ones from old ones.

    Newer versions with older dates, older versions with newer dates.

    it was a mess, i got tired of playing wack-a-mole.

    You talking about the repackaged catalyst ones? Yeah I don't get them, mainly other stuff like asmedia firmware updates etc.
