    Well, it'll be interesting to see if this even further improves AMD's DX12 performance.

    Can anyone compare performance between the 15.8 driver and the previously released 15.20.1062.1005/15.7.1? With the API overhead test for example?

    I think it nerfed my performance in AOTS... ROFL

    Edit: But I have to do some more testing, because it's a little bit confusing.

    I am loving this tiger team, they are popping driver updates like rabbits. :D

    Just two months ago we were crying for a driver, and now they come and go with most not knowing a damn thing about them :banana:

    I don't think so. But we'll see in 8 hours :)
    It's strange that we have no benchmarks yet :nerd:
    BTW, no mention about MAD MAX?
