    Im having trouble installing thew 15.9 drivers i download, i install as normal once everything extracts etc nothing at all!. It does not go to the amd catalyst setup.
    So unistalled everything using ddu again then installed 15.8 the same way and it works fine.
    Any idea why 15.9 won't install?

    Don't bother installing them, they're broken right now.

    Very broken to me, rolling back. From 100 FPS on Unigine Heaven I went to 5 FPS, hahahahahha... Ok that I'm on na old CF setup of two 7970 Ghz but they still do the job very great on Full HD and everything on ultra in all games... Witcher 3 it normally it does 45-60 with v-sync on, but with this driver 15.9 beta, I went to virtually a frame per second = 1 FPS literally. Rolling back fast.

    Substantially lower FPS in Battlefield 4 (Mantle) @ Siege of Shanghai, 64 Players - tower building C destroyed.


    15.8 Beta: 90-120 FPS
    15.9 Beta: 50-75 FPS

    I installed the 15.9 cleanly (removed the old driver with DDU before).

    On Windows 10 AMD64
    GPU: R9 290 4GB, (OC to 1080/1300)
    CPU: FX-8350 @ 4.5 Ghz (NB Clock 2.4Ghz, Memory clock 2133Mhz)
    MEM: 32 GB DDR3-2133 (CL10 - CR1)



    I rolled back to 15.8 Beta

    Any ideas why the catalyst control center won't open in 15.9? need it to open to adjust my monitor color correctly.
    Was going to wait till next year to buy a new gpu but now im seriously thinking im going to get a nvidia gtx 980. Ive had it with poor performance in certain games and crap drivers. Not saying Nvidia is perfect at all but certainly better than amd at present.

    Fix when you have crash in all Source games:
    This problem is also on W7. Random crash is on all Valve Source games in native resolution and other.
    1. Click PPM mouse on "csgo.exe" or other Source game and go to "Compatibility" tab.
    2. Click "Change settings for all users".
    3. Check options "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" and "Disable desktop composition"
    4. Click "Apply" and "OK" and "OK".
    I have Gigabyte AMD R9 270X and random crash is on all Source Games, but this settings solved this problem. 0 crash and all is ok.

    Lol yeah. Have a friend that switched from a 970 to a Fury X for the same reasons. There are issues everywhere, people have to deal with it. These drivers are BETAS.

    Same story here, FireFox is crashing hard.
    Going back to 15.8, better luck next time AMD.

    Open GPU-Z, sensors tab.
    Launch a browser, watch vids, resize windows. Check the memory usage (dedicated).
