    Ok here the idle bug continues.
    I mean the memory clock continues to work as if it is on load at 1200MHZ
    Core clock is working well, it gets to idle and load state when needed.

    About the Overhead API, DX11 the results stays the same, altough on DX12 it recieved a massive improvement. from 7 851 820 to 8 277 381

    Comparing the profile file between this and the Vulkan branch driver (16.xx.xx whereas these are 15.xx.xx) shows that it's missing most of those changes ( http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=5233625&postcount=61 ) but there's a profile for The Divison (Which will be useful when the full game launches in two weeks or so.) and there's also a profile for Far Cry Primal.

    Not too surprising though since this is basically a continuation of 16.1 and 16.1.1 with some further fixes but unfortunately also some new known issues.

    EDIT: Oh and yeah the Ashes of Singularity profile was updated but that's part of the release notes already.
    (Interestingly the profile for Rise of the Tomb Raider that was in the Vulkan driver was not in these, maybe it needed further tweaking.)

    Core clocks may not maintain sustained clock speeds resulting in choppy performance and or screen corruption.
    At this point I don't know should I laugh or cry...maybe a little bit of both.

    Well they are acknowledging it so hopefully a fix won't be too far away now, though it's been like what almost seven months or so since it was first brought up?

    For now though the Clockblocker program found in one of the pinned topics in this forum section works pretty well to maintain full 3D speeds for GPU's that have that downclocking or clock fluctuation issue. :)
    (Curiously in my case the screen corruption bug disappeared entirely when I switched monitors, so far I'm leaning towards it being a issue with Display Port 1.0 or 1.1 or whatever my previous monitor was using as the current one uses version 1.2 but there's definitively more to it than just that.)

    (Only ever triggered on certain web pages though and never in games though a few games - Arkham Knight and Assassin's Creed Syndicate in particular - were prone to crashing the display driver when run in fullscreen mode but borderless has resolved that issue and if it was a clock fluctuation issue then Clockblocker should have that solved as well until AMD effing fixes the damn thing properly which they really should have by now, it's not exactly a minor issue. :p )

    Tested on my laptop with newest Intel .4380. I should say that some games are choppy and screen has some artifacts.

    Witcher 3 avarage 28 fps with vsync.

    In Ashes of the Singularity(DX11) Avarage 4 fps.
    DX12 avarage 14 fps. I see some improvments.


    p.s. I installed CCC from 15.1.1 like OnnA said.

    Like I said, some people just wanted a fix for their problem(s), not The Division profile they probably don't care about.

    I also have no other issues other than per-game settings profile not working, but that doesn't mean others' problems are less valid.

    Me too :)
    lol they still need to upgrade Crimson CCC Functionality.
    I need it for my CRT to play with Gamma. New Games are very Dark on CRT (LCD lol)
    So in Tray I have Gamma Profiles:
    Desktop 1.2
    Gaming 1.5 & 1.65
    Then its OK :3eyes:

    I still need to Test it in Games, some say 3-4% Better Gaming than last One.
    I think they improved Fiji more.

    But Temps are lowered by 2deg when surfing Net :)

    Something strange... Vulkan driver has full compability with OpenGL 4.5 on my R9 270, but this driver have 91% again :) After replacing a few files: atig6pxx.dl_, atig6txx.dl_, atiglpxx.dl_, atio6axx.dl_, atioglxx.dl_ i have 100% again... interesting, it's realy works or not :D

    OpenGL® Version - 6.14.10.13430 :p

    it's proly fan control, broken ever since Crimson

    I don't notice it, because of my bigass sink
    40ºC while watching youtube, fan stays at 20%=600RPM

    as opposed to 90ºC with stock fan(i**** u not)

    indeed.
    Core clocks may not maintain sustained clock speeds resulting in choppy performance and or screen corruption <- sounds bad, but not acknowledging it, is far worse.

    Do not rely on Automatic Update.
    I had it download hotfix 1(which was already installed!), at the time when hotfix 2 had already been a week old.

    I can confirm that this driver does not contain the OpenGL/Vulkan versions of the Vulkan release driver. My guess is that it will take them another release to merge the branches. I'm uploading the DLL as we speak.

    Custom resolutions work fine here , or I mean I can press accept.

    Try reinstalling, or try to chance it to english and see if it makes difference.

    That problem happens only when using Overdrive?
    I've noticed the same with a 7870 only when it's enabled with previous crimsons, but if OD is never enabled after installing the driver and clocks are set with MSI AB, clocks will be OK in idle.

    8166 points in firestrike (9631 graphics). AMD is pushing GCN 1.0 to its limits. With every new driver slight increase.

    Yes and bluescreen in metro 2033 redux after overclocking. It's time for buy Nvidia, because AMD don't support their Graphic cards
