    Can you not just hack drivers to push it forwards yourself.

    And still not working on windows 10 :p Waiting for a proper fix for that :)

    @asder00 could you insert my Card device id in a future modded release ?

    I have been trying myself but my knowledge is too little i Guess :(

    Code:
    "%AMD6939.2%" = ati2mtag_Tonga, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6939&REV_F1
    Thanx in advance

    Did anyone get "Frame Rate Target Control" (FRTC) to work on the R9 200 series with this driver (15.15)? I assume this can be done with a registry hack. Anyone?

    Any idea when we'll see the 15.20 and 15.30?

    In case I haven't repeated it enough, what AMD is doing with the 300 series drivers is disgusting and horrible.

    No idea about a possible release from a 15.200 branch, except that AMD should probably have a "Catalyst 15.x" package from this branch ready on or after Windows 10 launch which is July 29.

    15.30/15.300 branch is completely made up by me, last year AMD used 14.500, 14.501 and 14.502 as branch versions for "14.x" releases.

    There were always "launch" driver releases limited at new cards only.

    Older cards might use the exact same GPU, but they are still different SKUs, with new hardware revisions, different memory configurations, etc., so they at least have to go through the usual round of testing - which is not something you can afford when you need to come with a stable polished driver in time for reviewers to benchmark.


    This release from the 15.150 branch is actually a slightly modified 14.501, if you consider individual driver versions. It was probably tested and declared feature complete at least 2 months in advance of 300-series release, just as production started. It's primarily meant for reviewers to test and benchmark the samples, and to be packaged on in-box installation CDs.

    Meanwhile new important features are being added to the "beta" 15.200 branch, which is going to be the "stable" release "15.x" at some point and will be supported across the entire range. Diverting resources for 200-series support in the 15.150 branch would only further delay the important 15.200 release.


    BTW I am not an AMD representative, so I am not really able to pass your feedback further, Frankly I don't think any number of forum posts or support requests would help speed up their driver development for the 15.200 branch. If you have relevant skills, you might consider applying for a programmer/tester position at AMD driver team. Nothing else will help with bringing the driver to the release status.

    Again, a dude with a text editor can port them to practically everything, and if his friends are in the mood, he can digitally sign them too. Whatever restriction is completely artificial. This driver branch has been running on cards from the 5000 series on, since January. Not a SINGLE new card from AMD has even a newer GCN revision. Their only "new card problem" is how to feed a GCN 1.2 core with 4096 shaders. There is no excuse. They tried to pull it with VSR, and now they do this until their stock on the new cards goes down. It is disgusting, please don't excuse it.

    ^ This is a driver discussion thread. What's the point of posting it here?

    No, it's not disgusting, and please don't tell me that the world will end because AMD skips a driver release for some cards in order to concentrate engineering efforts on a newer driver branch.

    95% of owners update their drivers once in a while or just never and won't bother installing a new release until specifically told that it will fix their particular problem.

    If you think otherwise, just buy a 980 Ti and move on to the GeForce drivers forum.

    Oh, "porting" binary executable with a text editor... that's cute. Port the Catalyst driver to my microwave owen please. I really need it a new profile to fix my roast beaf program.


    HD5000 series are TeraScale2, not GCN.

    Well, to be honest I don't see this as a problem, as we who care can always uses modded driver for extra performance :)
