    Ok so i took the time to benchmark a pCars replay before and after the updating my drivers.

    Conditions :
    - Full grid
    - BRNO Circuit
    - Rain
    - Replay - TV cam
    - 60 sec Fraps benchmark

    Settings :
    - Visual FX all enabled or maxed out
    - Resolution : 1440p
    - Windowed : False
    - Texture resolution : High
    - Texture filtering : x16
    - VSync : Off
    - AA : MSAA
    - FXAA : High
    - SMAA : Off
    - Reflection : Medium
    - Environment Map : Low
    - Car Details : Ultra
    - Track Detail : Medium
    - Motion Blur : Low
    - Render Frames Ahead : 1 (WTF is this ?!)
    - Detailed grass : Low
    - Particle Level : High
    - Particle density : High

    PC :
    - i7 960 @ 3.9 Ghz
    - 12 GB DDR3
    - R9 290x

    Before update

    Run #1
    Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg
    2478 60000 20 58 41.3

    Run #2
    Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg
    2489 60000 21 59 41.483

    After update

    Run #1
    Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg
    2573 60000 22 63 42.883

    Run #2
    Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg
    2636 60000 22 65 43.933

    I am seriously wondering if upgrading to 390x is a smart move.
    At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter how powerful your card is if it's not supported by game developers.

    So is 10% improvement for single GPU what you get from this driver in the best case?

    Crossfire scaling is fantastic as usual. Can hit 50FPS average at 4k now.
    HOWEVER.
    Frame times are a complete mess. It bounces around from 9ms to 37ms(!!!!) constantly, and is utterly unplayable.

    Back to a single 290x and 1440p I guess.

    9ms frametime with average of 50FPS? You can't be seeing 9ms very much :) 30ms is normal for around 30/40FPS.

    If it's average and have a fps variance from 4 to 120 it's possible....:(

    Is posible that the root cause is something like in GTA V? some advanced settings, AA?

    How is the GPU usage for you?

    With this usage how is the scaling over single GPU?

    70-75% with same graphic settings?
