doesn't list my 7950 as 12.0 feature level in dxdiag :nerd:
Your 7950 doesn't support feature level 12.0
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.
Got the drivers installed but no catalyst control center?. Never had so much bother installing drivers.
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
Of course you're gonna have bad FPS in your games. Vram is broken !
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.
This is true. But good luck if he wants to play project cars etc etc etc on amd cards.
Driver works for me without any issue.
What i need to do to replicate the VRAM leak bug?
Open GPU-Z, sensors tab.
Launch a browser, watch vids, resize windows. Check the memory usage (dedicated).
Jeez...their QC department sux balls. They need to hire more Russian nerd programmers...or Indian at least.
I got BSOD using these on YouTube then Windows virtual memory change from 1.90gb to 7.92gb due to this error.
Firefox and MGS5 both hosed with these, back to 15.8... worst betas in years.
Ok got it. LOL
Need to kill/restart DWM.exe
