    Did you sleep under rock for last few months? Demos are available since first day of published v1.0 of specification of that API.




    On the driver... installation went fine which is normal to me, just tested in 3dmark, just for you guys.

    16.4.2:
    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/11786208
    last vulkan beta driver score:
    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/8255272

    Since some time something odd is happening with 3dmark firestrike. Second half of demo is working slow, with extremely low framerate like it never did before but tests work fine as they usually did.

    the division still broken on my setup.

    negative scaling, flickering is gone but now everything is out of sync, has this jumpy/shaky effect of frames not being rendered equally so its just headache inducing in 5 seconds. . its worse than it was.

    "The Division™ may experience flickering in AMD Crossfire™ technology mode."
    "We changed it to be shaky/blury/vomit inducing while flicker free!"

    This driver package uses Vulkan 1.0.3.1 vs 1.0.8.0 from Vulkan beta. If you install 16.4.2 over Vulkan beta, the vid driver remains from the vulkan beta, and you will have both Vulkan runtimes installed.

    The Division crossfire profile is **** poor. Flickering gone but I get worse fps on 2 cards than on 1 card, and the scaling is a joke. Plus, there's a constant stutter to the game now. Bravo everyone involved, you did great at teasing us with a half baked fix.

    I actually got the corruption in FO4 without crossfire, so hopefully it's fixed for me too. Since there are not DS3 fixes, I will assume the frame rate issues people are experiencing are at the game's fault.

    +200k drawcalls in dx 12 with this driver. AOTS dx 12 benchmark same fps as before, ROTTR dx 12 benchmark became a stuttery mess.

    For me vs 16.4.1:

    Ashes of the singularity better CPU utilization in Dx12. Much better framerrate from 23 to 30 on same test.
    Rest of games i tested are smoother less frametime I think, not too much...
    Clocks are estable when gaming now, bit less driver overhead I see here.
    Temps are 2º-4º higher on idle.

    Good to know amd is improving performance for everyone, except for fx owners. I'm glad I only have to keep this thing for 2 more weeks max.

    Yeah The Divisions CFX profile is useless. At least AMD tried, so I won't complain. I will be using just one card though.

    I think this driver might fixed some DVI/HDMI audio related issues. Although the HDMI Audio drivers have the same version numbers and build dates (both the codec and system device), so may be it was simply the re-installation process (I also used DDU this time, I don't always do that).

    What are you upgrading to... and why? ;o

    Is it bottlenecking? I'm asking cuz I was thinking about upgrading too, but I wasn't sure if i "NEEDED" it.
