Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2 is optimized to support this exciting new release.
    The SteamVR Performance Test: we are pleased to report that our Radeon R9 390, Nano, and Fury series GPUs are all able to achieve 'VR Recommended' status, the highest achievable level of experience possible. In addition to that, our affinity multi-GPU feature is already showing significant performance uplift over a single GPU on Radeon cards in the aforementioned benchmark
    Performance and quality improvements for
    Rise of the Tomb Raider™
    Ashes of the Singularity – Benchmark 2
    Crossfire Profiles available for
    The Division
    XCOM 2

    Resolved Issues

    A black screen/TDR error may be encountered when booting a system with Intel + AMD graphics and an HDMI monitor connected
    Choppy gameplay may be experienced when both AMD Freesync™ and AMD Crossfire™ are both enabled
    Display corruption may be observed after keeping system idle for some time
    Fallout 4 - Flickering may be experienced at various game locations with the v1.3 game update and with AMD Crossfire™ enabled
    Fallout 4 - Foliage/water may ripple/stutter when game is launched in High/Ultra settings mode
    Fallout 4 - Screen tearing in systems with both AMD Freesync™ and AMD Crossfire™ enabled if game is left idle for a short period of time
    Fallout 4 - Thumbnails may flicker or disappear while scrolling the Perk levels page
    Far Cry 4 - Stuttering may be observed when launching the game with AMD Freesync™ and AMD Crossfire™ enabled
    FRTC options are displayed on some unsupported laptop configurations with Intel CPU's and AMD GPU's
    Radeon Settings may sometimes fails to launch with a "Context Creation Error" message

    DX12 multi-GPU in AotS, eh? :gape: I don't have the time to test myself right now, but if anyone has a chance to do it I'd love to hear how that performs.

    Affinity multi-GPU for the SteamVR test too, that's something I'm curious about as well. These drivers look quite interesting.

    Performance on 3DMark and API calls is the same as before.

    Not only partnered for the benchmark...partnered for the whole game.

    It's an AMD showcase to expose what we can get in a game when AMD GPUs performance is not broke by game devs focused in giving a better performance in the GPUs of the 80% market GPU maker.

    I can't blame game publisher to accept that fact (Nvidia "supporting" game devs), after all game publisher sell games and 80% of market target is more important than 20%.

    So a lot of problems are fixed for Fallout 4 but there are still problems with CFX profile because it's included in know issue section and the best solution is disable it as usual.

    :3eyes:

    3 months and a gazillion hotfixes later we still don't have a good CFX profile.

    AMD please add an option in GPU drivers to disable your mandatory "ultra mega power saving feature" for ppl who want performance over cost even if that means some cents or even some dollars in the next power bill!

    If you do that you will see that magically solves the problem and AMD GPUs will be able to maintain clock speeds when the driver is not downclocking them at the worst time.

    Seriously crossfire profiles for a benchmark and a game that isn't out, but they can't unlock crossfire for siege after how many months?

    Like i said in another thread, poor AMD suffer "Greedy customers syndrome" whom continuously ask for new drivers AND at the same time expect them to do something different than simply breaking working features.

    :D

    It's more like they're unhappy about things that don't get fixed.
    They probably also don't care about AotS benchmark and The Division.

    So, yeah, they can be happy about something, but AMD just haven't delivered.
    Ask FunkyMike how much effort the community took just to get AMD fix the black screen / Intel+AMD / HDMI error on laptops.

    First off, sorry for the double post.

    Tried the legacy for my laptop and Radeon Settings still has a non-working per-game profile setting.
    Ended up just updating the driver via Driver Manager to this set and installing CCC from 15.7.1; profiles work fine again.

    And yes, I did use DDU in Safe Mode.

    Same here, my Idle temps are 32C. But there can be so many elements that affect that, your tower, fans - airflow - Room temperature etc. But eh, he might wanna update the profile card under the avatar since its listed as "KFA2 Nvidia GTX 670 ".
