    3dmark fillrate is also very synthetic, so perhaps better memory management won't show real differences. Could you test starswarm under win 8.1 and 10 in dx mode.

    Star Swarm is very dynamic. Tests aren't conclusive.
    I use the overhead test to compare drivers as it's quick and effective.
    I could run the GTA V benchmark though.

    If we can install WDDM 1.3 drivers for win 10, that could give good comparision between WDDM 1.3 under W8.1 and W10. To see if extra perf comes from 2.0 or W10 itself.

    So in running GTA V on my 295x2 at bezel compensated Eyefinity res of 6052x1200 on Normal to High settings with FXAA and no MSAA I get game crash issues when pausing or pressing Esc. However if I bump the res down to the 1050 bezel compensated range in Eyefinity I get no game crashes. I am not exceeding the 8GB of vid memory GTA V says I have. Any one else?

    Funny thing is when playing mantle on low graphics on 1 card on my 2560x1440 i get drops into the 80fps and 100% gpu usage. How come I get that low fps on lowest graphics settings. When I play with dx11.1 I get a nice 95fps constant.

    Hate to break it to you but that is 4gb per gpu on a dual gpu card. 4gb is usable..not 8gb.

    I been hoping flash to die for years. Every other version is either crashy or has some security flaws :bang:

    Hoping more sites follow youtube example and go for html5 or other technicues. Tho html5 youtube still has few issues @1080p60fps, but its mostly OK novadays.

    Sadly I doubt we get completely rid of flash for a while. And so we will see driver incompatibility issues. Hard to even know wether problem is browser, flash or driver or combination of some or all of them

    What we really need is updates in "solved issues", we have already enough "know issues".

    This will solves the need of an update in the "patience" shrinking resource... :)

    Its called consumer frustration, when you buy something that does not work as intended for a year, People usually lose their mind especially when you pay the full launch price.

    Official, you mean WHQL? Probably with the R3xx series or when Windows 10 is officially released.

    Weird thing: I try to play Fallout New Vegas with 15.3 Win7 x64 drivers and I get this error "Failed to initialize renderer".I know old win7 x64 drivers,forgot to update them.I play most of the time new games on Win 8.1.
    No other option remain so I reinstall 14.12 Omega drivers and finally manage to play the game.

    Did anyone try to play Fallout New Vegas with this 15.5 beta drivers? Thanks. :)

    You can also try to use the trick from this thread:http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=399547
    and download the 14.12 DLL's and put them in the games .exe folder. Then you shouldn't need to reinstall drivers.
