    On a positive note, I have gained an average of 45fps in Rainbow Six: Siege which is huge. The massive frame-drops experienced from previous drivers has vastly improved across all games, I've gained 250 points in 3DMark and the crossfire notification is a welcomed bonus. I think AMD are heading in the right direction.

    Huh, 45FPS is absolutely massive. I see you have a 295x2, have AMD by chance enabled CF and not mentioned it in the release notes? I can hardly see how you can get such a huge performance boost otherwise.

    I don't own the game and one of the main reasons I don't is because CF doesn't work.

    DDU and re-install. Seems to work after that for most people, as far as I remember.

    Just installed them in my R9 280.Power efficiency IS or should i say WAS there for me, until i turned it from Off to On and then disappeared.Restarted PC and still gone.Is this a bug or something?

    Also i can confirm that the library scan is broken.I have 50+ games installed and only about 10 of them are in there.It can't find the rest of the games.

    something really wrong with these drivers when it comes to unplugging your display and plugging it back in or changing resolutions

    display driver will completely crash or not recover properly, that goes for using VSR resolutions not working or working or settings vanishing or running 4k resolution with CRU if you turn the monitor off then back on during detection the graphics card driver crashes and disables and you have to reenable it via device manager and even then sometimes it will not reenable and requires a reboot.

    they changed something compared to the previous drivers to do with the way displays are detected or freesync is detected ect.

    Yeah, I think they messed something up with FS as well, as I've said it's completely broken for me in 16.3. FS is reported to be enabled and working however and the correct FS interval is shown.

    Is anybody with a 200 series card actually LOSING performance because of the power optimizations? Nothing changed about that for us, right?

    That's what I mean. So every clock fluctuation 200 series users get, was what they were already getting anyway, right?

    Maybe someone could check clock behavior on them post and pre Crimson? I don't believe there will be any difference whatsoever.

    Correct, nothing will have changed for us, other than general optimizations or powerplay improvements.

    but good luck isolating performance issues, it could be just about any thing.

    lol

    Zero chance, and I've seen no improvement with these over older drivers in siege. Still 60 min 90 avg 130 to 180 max

    I have this only when using Effects on Ultra, both on DX11 and Mantle. Drop them one step below and this will go away. Can be triggered/checked very easy in the firing range if you take the attack boat next to the gun range, close to the shore, zoom in and fire a lot of cannon rounds or rockets at the ground just after the shore.

    I am not getting any display corruption anymore since 16.1.
