    any improvement over the 16.2 release or it's a Far Cry Primal profile driver?

    Seriously? They should really think about the sanity of their version numbering templates.
    How can you possibly have a "hotfix" version of something which was never even released / how can you have several hotfix versions in a row while the base number also changes (or how can you spend several months with publishing hotfix versions without a stable release...)?
    If you do this, it should be v1-hotfix1, v1-hotfix2, not v1-hotfix and v2-hotfix in a row without v2 (nothotfix) between.

    May be the driver package should be called Radeon Hotfix Software™ to be done with it and use the numbers for real versioning like x.x.x

    The betas are considered release,they specify non-whql-64bit..well long story.

    Why do you even bother?
    It's just the numbers, would you be happy if it was 16.3?

    I can only assume it's their new release name (non WHQL) as people tend to fear betas. It doesn't bother me. They could have used a more appropriate naming scheme.

    don't, please...

    AMD components naming scheme... and hunting for something to compare with on their official website, fires me up quickly
    then 2 days later we get the driver with the same name, but different package, whatever the *** that means... :cussing:

    present in which driver??

    Some little D3D12 improvements:

    Goodish (C):
    - OK, finally I am able to display correctly some particle effects. Hurray!

    Improveish (C):
    - Looks like borderless window error are no more randomly thrown from a random code-line. Still better then before

    Unknowish (C):
    - Frame-rate is still discard-synched even when it should not (it is still more fluid and responsive the v-sync for those are not aware). I need more accurate results from more complex applications and read the damn complete WDDM 2.0 programming guide related part. Personal opinion: I prefer tons of tearing on 60Hz screens (and this is why I do not care abut adaptive-sync/g-sync on 60Hz monitors).

    Still badish (C):
    - 4K small textures alignment is still broken. I hate wasting memory, I want this fixed.

    EDIT: this is compared to 16.1.1. I did not install the 16.2 package before.

    Geez. People whingeing that there aren't frequent drivers, then they whinge when there are! I'm very okay with them calling them hotfixes or betas, there really isn't a more appropriate term. If these were WHQL'd in which case they could get a proper driver moniker and not 'beta' or 'hotfix', you would be waiting at least another 4 weeks minimum for the same driver. This is because WHQL takes time. It also takes money.

    Just be grateful they are releasing drivers out of the WHQL cycle, stop your whingeing, and enjoy! FFS.

    It looks about the same as the 16.2 (without .1) list.

    Oh wtf... That looks exactly like changelogs for Farming Simulator. The POS company decided to include all previous changes to the changelog for a new version so that it looks like they did something during the 3 months since last patch, when in fact there were like two absolutely minor new things.

    Not all changes made to drivers are brought up in the light for public. Those changes that are announced always only consist those that effect the end user. But they can also provide many fixes for developers.

    Alessio, does IHV's actually have some internal patch notes for developers only?

    Core clocks may not maintain sustained clock speeds resulting in choppy performance and or screen corruption.

    I can't actually remember a time my crossfire setup didn't do this.

    Then you have games like tomb raider using 100% of gpu 1 and 0% of gpu 2. You make me sad AMD (and game devs.)
