if finally errored out and fixed itself.
ended up with 800kbps or so.
Checking out the Linux driver now; seems like AMD finally started supporting Kernel 3.14+ at quick glance.
Curious to see how the driver does on non R9 285 hardware though, but I guess I'll find out soon enough.
Edit: Works on 3.14+ ,does not seem to support other hardware (no detected adapters on 7660G + 7670M laptop). No idea where to even begin with trying to modify it to work on other hardware :/
Correction; you can't generate a new xorg.conf on unsupported hardware. If you have a pre-generated xorg.conf from a previous fglrx installation though, this driver works fine.
The MEGA link provided times out, fails.
They were annoying me with this 3.13 kernel support... By 3.14+ do you mean 3.16 and maybe 3.17 too? By default or requires patching?
It installs on 3.16.1 without any modding; the firegl_public.c mod that was needed before was already done when I checked.
So far, it seems to work just fine on my laptop, although Chrome still does that shift to the right a few pixels thing when maximized with HW acceleration enabled.
So i will check them later also on my machine, i wonder if they would run on kernel 3.17.
No more artifacts on State of Decay, and heat issue is gone... :rock:
The downside: Eyefinity Bezel compensation don`t work with this driver... :wanker:
Installation went fine with these.
Tested with BF4 and D3.
BF4 seems smoother than with 14.8.
D3 seems to be as terrible as ever but I blame Blizz for this.
I´ll use them for a while.
i can confirm vo!d says!
bf4 run better then 14.8
Leaked drivers!!! YES!
Like the golden times!
I think I'll skip these. But it's good too see an update.
Actually, no it didn't, it just had broken links leading to 404s and people guessing what it was with no real answer.
I have a feeling I'll install these and a day later AMD will release something official... So yeah I'll wait, no biggie.
First thing I've noticed? These drivers made the RPM counter (tachometer) work again in MSi Afterburner!!!
I'm gonna play some Deus Ex, Assetto Corsa and other games later and tell you my impressions!
Edit: Assetto Corsa is just fine with these... Played for an hour and it's fast and stable! Not much fps improvements though...
I hope these don't give me bad surprises...
Also, I believe these are the "14.30" people were talking about in the launch of the Radeon 285 series...
During install, there is the ACP application and the AMD USB filter shows for me, I don't recall them in the install list before. Of course, once installed you can't see if it shows on the older driver because it will automatically be listed as it is installed (if that makes sense). I installed them anyway, and it seemed to install fine! The USB filter thing probably installed because I lost the use of my mouse for a second or two during installation (because of the installation of the USB filter).
Even though the only thing AMD on my computer is the graphics card, it may not necessarily mean the USB filter driver won't work, since it is audio related and probably universal spec?
ACP is True audio, which the 280 doesnt have, and you dont have a AMD chipset for the usb filter, so neither of those will actually do anything.
That's what I thought . I guess no harm installing them for now, I'm doing a reinstall in a few days once I get a new SSD. I would have loved to have bought a R9-285X (depending on price) along the way, I guess I have to wait a bit longer for that .
the sammy 840 evo 1tb was on sale at the egg for $390 a few days ago, might still be...
