    AA is unusable if you are sensitive because it seems like its alternating frames, one frame with AA on, one frame with AA off. So its kinda like on/off switch pressed on the keyboard. Tested at night and it seemed like the screen was pulsating.

    during the day with AA off, walking and slow scenes are fine, just riding the horse you can tell its flickering every few seconds. After testing for 2 minutes cant tell how annoying that will become, will test tomorrow while continuing my walkthrough.

    15.4 I had a steady locked 50 fps in Witcher 3. Now it's fairly steadily around 45 fps. :bang::bang::bang:

    So, these are EXACTLY the same ones as the leaked ones?
    Can anyone confirm if the binaries are newer/different, please?

    Gonna pass if so, because the leaked driver (15.200.0.0 May 5) are wonderful for GTA V which is the only game I'm playing right now (besides POSTAL 2)
    And the leaked 15.5 was a MESS for that game. Stutter and framedrops out of nowhere to single digits.

    Ah yes the panacea to crossfire issues, just disable it®
    Can anyone make a Nike-themed AMD crossfire poster with "Just Disable It®"?
    And lower down the tessellation to ridiculous level to get mediocre performance.
    Yaaay..

    man, it must be painful to post garbage like this.

    Roy@AMD should delete his twitter account. This is a damn joke. It really is unbelievable. As much of a scum company Nvidia is, AMD is just pure trash.

    How could you do this to yourselves? Are you purposely trying to ruin the company you guys work for?

    AMD's image at this point is irreparable.

    Is there a way to extract the app profiles and put them in the W10 drivers?

    In my opinion it isn't bad, tough i need to test them.
    The big problem was the delay between the release of Project cars especially and Witcher 3 Wild Hunt.

    AMD needs to be more fast, i could even say that they are working with the Windows 10 etc etc, but thats excuses, and people want things that work in day one.
    If i hadn't Windows 10, i wouldn't ever had decent performance on project cars until now.

    Thas something that AMD needs to fix, the timings.
    But ok, we just have one more painfull Gameworks game left to release now, its Batman.

    ingame options used please? I get 50 fps avg without hairworks, and 38 with hairworks. With everything set to ultra, hbao+, high sharpness and 1080p. Unless you got some settings off, no way you are getting 60 fps all the time with hairworks on with this driver.

    Sigh...just tested it in W3 and GTA5...in short, 1023 mucho > 15.5 ...lower FPS much higher (5-10), less dips, less stutter (with 1023 I don't have any stutter). In GTA5 I have awful lod/ texture pop-up bugs...something like this -

    [​IMG]

    Verdict for me: Revert back to 1023...

    EDIT:

    I feel like an idi@t again...apparently those testing of mine was incorrect. Don't know why but my cpu clock reverting back every time I install a new driver or change power options related to cpu in OS...don't really know why...didn't happened to me in win 7...and I just installed win 8.1 for the first time. So that's why I've got lower fps in GTA5 and W3...at default 3.2Ghz cpu speed it barely playable. Even if it shows at bios post 4.6ghz in windows my cpu running at default clocks...very frustrating. I have to re-enter to bios and hit F10 every time after driver install...

    Shame on me! I guess with age I'm getting neglectful and too lazy to check everything proper. I hope AMD can forgive me for misleading...I hope there is still love for me from Red God. Is it there, Matt? ..after all you are his preacher...you should know :( ..is it?

    So...with 4.6ghz oc clocks I've got all the different (who would doubt it) results...

    Those 15.5 are superior to 1023/ r9 300 drivers for me...both in GTA5 and W3...slightly but better.

    PS. Sorry again, dudes...I f@cked up on this :(

    Have you tried http://forum.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=399410 yet?

    For GTA V it's amazing.
