    I noticed too that when shutting down the secondary screen via win+p, the windowed(fullscreen) game on the main screen freezes. If I restart the secondary screen, image recovers. I thought it was a Radeon 290 issues, as the 6950 I had before (and with old drivers) worked perfectly.

    Been playing and benchmarks all day not had any issue here. Driver is simply stunning, the best r9 driver yet I would say.

    I have a Sapphire hd 7790 dual X-OC , and I had problems with 13.9 , 13.12 drivers before, I recently installed the 14.4 and no issues so far.
    this driver version has more performance for Watch Dogs?
    No BSOD while playing?

    I found the reason for the yellow error (At least I think) after using DDU stay tune for an update

    I'm unhappy with this driver in BF4 and Mantle. I have more lags then with the 14.7 RC3. Not playable, going back. Suxxx!

    Exactly! AMD gives me mental disorders with their rubbish support on GCN1 cards!!

    I have Hd 7950 crossfire. So this is awesome to hear that crossfire is working good now in Watch Dogs. Only game I have crossfire issues with.

    Mantle works good for me, and my card is GCN1 :) Sure, sure, optimizations can be always done but it's pretty fine for such a new API. Most of it will be in DX12 anyway.

    Mantle works fine here and gives a very nice improvement over DX11 in BF4 for me on 7970 GCN1 card.

    1080p Ultra settings 0xAA and locked fps to 65fps using commandline gametime.maxvariablefps 65. It never drops at all even in 64 player conquest games. Only a couple of maps have slowdowns to 55fps when looking into the distance with tons happening on screen. When I use DX11 same settings my lowest fps is 40fps. That's a pretty big improvement.

    Yeah, I like Mantle too, but not with this driver. The older one appeared to manage video ram better for me. With 14.9 I had heavy stuttering, most likely the Vram was exhausted. Guess why they introduced with the R285 Vram compression!?
