    Anyone else getting green screens during video playback on these drivers (on W10)?, for me on these drivers if i play Netflix (for example) on a web browser (tried on edge, IE and Chrome) after a while the video stops and my screen goes green.

    On older drivers this doesn't happen (I've tried a few and a re-install of these), this is the 1st time I've ever had this issue.

    I wonder why the DxDiag utility does not show 12.0?

    I tested D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_12_0 and it's work http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=401411

    Code:
    HRESULT hr_12_0 = D3D12CreateDevice_(nullptr, D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_12_0, IID_PPV_ARGS(&device_12_0));
    HRESULT hr_12_0_1 = D3D12CreateDevice_(nullptr, D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_12_1, IID_PPV_ARGS(&device_12_0_1));
    for R9 390
    hr_12_0 is S_OK (D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_12_0 support)
    hr_12_0_1 is E_FAIL (D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_12_1 not support)

    Both camps seem to be having the same problem with feature level detection.

    I tracked down my display driver crashes with this driver to atidxx64.dll.

    It hasn't happened again since going back to regular 15.7

    This is untrue. People with GF series 9 are reporting DirectX 12/12.1 feature level when they run dxdiag.

    I have annoying problem with this driver and Windows 10 64bit. I get Black screen about 8 seconds before login to windows. It is driver related because I did uninstall the driver with DDU and problem disappeard.

    It's CrossFire related, you have to disabled ULPS. More in this thread: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=401366

    For me it is normally visible and I had to select it myself. Make sure you have enabled freesysnc on the monitor.

    So today I decided to do a format and install the latest drivers for my motherboard and gpu. So i tested api overhead and results are really low.

    It's about 100k lower than before the format.

    I ran the disable ulps tool after disabled ulps in MSI afterburner and check out this. After the boot i get this results but it looks a bit high for me

    DirectX11 Single thread definitely saw improvements. The rest are withing the margin of error.

    Can you please restest and give back the results? My DX11ST tends to vary so much. As you can see as much as 400k+

    Run them @ 1080p not 720p

    Also that single threaded DX11 score of 1.6M+ is probably the highest I've ever seen on an AMD Card posted here in the forums...

    That's the point. It's inconsistent and I don't see how. Maybe a windows 10 issue. sometimes i can see it doing a bit better on the test but results will show other wise.

    Anyway I tested firestrike and performance is better but not by much but better is better even if half a fps it's still better than before.

    I will restest 1080p twice and 1440p twice just to confirm results
