Well they don't wanna release it with issues, do you? If it were released earlier with faults you'd be whining all over.
True; the thing that annoys me though is that they claimed quite a few times to have it released in January.
Don't give ETAs if you can't meet them... Or at least give a larger window of time.
(or at least release the Linux driver since I doubt that's causing the holdup )
Edit: The article says at least 36 hours away, which puts the release outside of the January window (in my timezone anyway; it's 4AM currently). It could be possible AMD would just decided to release it today, but I doubt it.
I wonder what would happen if we simply changed the driver INI and reg entries to "AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta" and selected mantle in bf4 settings lol...
Edit: Plug2k just put his hand up to take one for the team, go fella go!
+1. Rushed drivers are never a good thing
According to friends playing BF4, it' patch added some new nice to have functionality. But introduced some sound related bugs, which were different server to server.
Maybe custom servers need to change some things in configs with this update.
Yeah some stuff needs to be re-setup on some servers with each update i'd say, i've seen the disappearing name tag bug still on some custom servers and not on others.
And i think Plug2k is no longer with us, may u rest in peace big fella.
A lot of websites reported the same thing yesterday, but with less detail. I hope they can fix the bugs that they found... maybe it is because of a tweet that I sent a day or two ago
Yeah looks like you raped his twitter feed good and proper, one reason why i never use twitter.
Yeah I know, it sucks.
Yay, they found a few issues and decided to fix them before releasing the driver and that is a BAD thing? It's not like there's a whole lot depending on Mantle out there at this particular moment.
Chill, be patient, good stuff comes to those who wait, santa loves all children, peace on earth etc. :infinity:
It shouldn't have been rushed. They had two months.
meh, I'll happily wait. didn't expect it to come this month anyway
well the article says 36 hours, it's not too much of a delay. And it's funny to say "I didn't expect it to come this month" if it'll come on February 2, lol.
It says "at least 36 hours"; could be longer.
In any case, it's not meeting the January time frame. Companies need to learn not to give ETAs they can't without a doubt meet...
I totally agree with that. But they know that ETA's cause hype and that's exactly what they want. It's not a problem for them to delay a release, all it does it create more hype and get people more excited... even though most of us are bitching here, we will download the driver immediately when it is released.
Yawn I stopped caring about 7 weeks ago
