    I always do benchmarks with fresh driver intall and after I let windows for ~30min to make his internal tasks. :)

    This 18.2.3 for Win7/8.1 is not good in terms of DX11 or Vulkan perf vs 18.1.1.

    Oh I forgot to mention that. Yes, JonasBechman that's correct. You do need to run it at least twice.

    I use to do that as well. Benching becomes more of task then anything in this regard.

    Well, although you are of course correct--I was speaking of backwards-compatibility with existing games. My 12_0 (feature level-RX-480 8GB) DX12 installation of Windows 10x64 (version 1803, build 17110.1000) has no trouble at all with d3d9 games...(or older, actually--I've got some d3d6/7 stuff hanging around that still runs well.) I was speaking of DirectX moreso than just a particular d3d version as an isolated API. Sorry if I wasn't more clear about that...;) All versions of DirectX are indeed backwards-comptable, all the way back to d3d7, I believe--but certainly, as you say, the d3d12 API itself is merely a subset of DirectX12 as it exists inside Win10 atm.

    Have you tried to alt enter before pressing the shortcut? It might not work in true fullscreen.

    Edit: Nvm, just tested it and it's the opposite. On my 7870 it'll only show if in true fullscreen by pressing ctrl+shift+o (beware that control+o will also throw you to the pits). When it's not in true fullscreen, only the radeon overlay (alt+r) works.

    Why does this file get left behind and why is it in use?

    I've only noticed this with 18.2.2 & 18.2.3, I don't recall this happening before, I have uninstalled drivers and cleaned using ddu.

    ^^ TrueType font for .ttf? It seems to me your qtquickcontrols is out of wack, it should not highjack your system fonts. Also, to force it without fixing underlining problem with 3rd party thingy, kill explorer, delete this file manually, start explorer.
    (Is this even in safe mode - doesn't look like it to me.)

    You need to detele the reference from registry, once you remove it system will allow to remove that folder.

    font has to be uninstalled from within the font folder, then system restarted and folder can be deleted. no need to fiddle with registry, it's the way fonts work.

    Since AMD stopped releasing drivers for Windows 8/8.1, is it okay to install Win7 drivers on 8.1?

    Updates the Vulkan driver component from 9.2.10.14 to 9.2.10.18 and the .JSON files though the only difference here is the reported API version from 1.0.65.0 to 1.1.70.0 :)

    The other components from 18.3.1 are likely going to be newer. (Version 23.20.15027.x against 23.20.15025.x)
    (Also includes the new 1.1.70.0 Vulkan runtime of course.)

    No its not a mistake.

    There were probably working with vulkan 1.1 on 18.2.3, whats why they released it like that.

    I will wait for 18.3.2 in 2 weeks.

    Probably promoting 18.2.3 to full WHQL and having a WHQL Vulkan 1.1 supporting driver I would guess, newer drivers should have it bundled in eventually so yeah maybe even as fast as 18.3.2 when that comes out. :)
