    i havent had to use DDU since crimson was released.

    right over the top of the last one, never an issue.

    Could someone please check Tomb of the Spiderqueen in Heroes of the Storm?
    Boss lair looks like this for me (also with previous 16.7.2 driver):

    It looks right on my brother's PC with GTX 780 Ti.

    Edit: Looks less broken without forced anisotropic filtering:

    But it's still a bit corrupted, the reflection shader is broken.

    Just got 2 BSOD in R6:Siege, after installing this driver (used ddu before installation)

    Chromium based browsers get unbearable flickering if #enable-gpu-rasterization is enabled.

    Yes and 1138mhz give me more graphic score with 16.300.2311.0 , the problem is cpu score not Graphics Score ( and 4mhz are invisible in graphic score ) ..

    its a profil issue .

    3dmark11 profil deleted in crimson and now cpu perf ok :

    Wattman is still very unstable for me, it's about 50/50 whether I get an AMD Radeon Settings crash when I click the Wattman tab, been the same since the first RX480 drivers.

    I have a VSR issue with these drivers. In Windows it works OK, I can scale up to 3800x1800. However no game sees any resolution above 1080p anymore.

    I never use DDU unless I have an issue or am setting up hyrbid physx.


    I always install new driver without uninstalling. Honestly, dont ever have an issue.


    Bout to run ROTR and see the difference in DX11 and DX12 with this driver.

    Performing a task switch with two cloned displays during full screen gaming may cause flickering on the extended display.
    Ah, I forgot to report that but it got fixed anyway. :)

    The 16.7.3 drivers with my laptop's 2x Radeon HD 7970M video cards make Windows 10 1511 crash during the shutdown process for me every single time and cause disk checking to run on startup, no matter if I do a clean install or over the top of the previous ones. Going back to 16.7.2 fixes the issue.

    I just got my very first ever driver crash outside of games with this driver. I was literally doing nothing when it happened. Looked like others are also experiencing crashes/hard-locks with this driver:

    Overclocking can do that. A new driver can use the gpu more efficiently, even if ever so slight, but it could be enough to trigger instability. You need to consider maximising standard hardware is in mind, not high overclocks. The method of increasing the overclock until instability occurs then backing off slightly is only good for finding absolute overclock and bragging rights :). Running high overclocks could also mean a reduction in longevity.

    The 75 percent rule is a good basis. From maximum seemingly stable overclock work out 75 percent of it by diving the increase in clock over standard by 4, multiplying by 3, and adding it to the original clock. For higher overclocks you could go 90 percent for both gpu and video memory. If standard clock is 1.0 GHz and you found a maximum stable overclock at 1400, it's a 400 MHz difference. 90 percent of that is 360 MHz, so the maximum 'stable' overclock is really 1360 MHz. This allows a small speed buffer for future drivers. At 75 percent it is 1300 MHz, which should be considered the 'safe' upper limit. The difference in speed will not change a playable game to an unplayable one. It could even help in some instances as I have come across stutter caused by otherwise seemingly stable maximum overclocks. This also includes CPU overclocking.

    Hey @thatguy91, that's great info for everyone but I believe you misunderstood what crashed.

    It wasn't the system but only 3DMark after conclusion of the API Overhead tests. Do you have 3DMark to replicate?

    Similar problem with me, 3DMark just froze and didn't show the benchmark score.

    So a fun experience with 16.7.03 update install failed as I mentioned previously, so I downloaded them from the website and installed them, today I'm playing The Division and doing a High Value Target (basically a boss battle for those that don't have the game) , I get through the first three waves and the boss arrives, boom back to desktop so AMD can tell me there's new drivers, except they're the same version number just Crimson is telling me they're WHQL certified, I mean WTF how can the AMD website be letting me download a different version of 16.7.03???

    Dude, played 3 hrs last night on R6 siege, vsr 4k (R9 390) without a single issue...

    Did not clean install, Stacked (updated) the driver instead this time... Maybe that made a difference?

    Peace :thumbup:


    BTW, this driver appears extremely stable for my setup...

    Max stable OC without perf degradation (based on 90% of max stable clocks achieved) is up from 1130/1680 < 1156/1693 :eek3: ...

    Power target is +50%, Aux +6%, Gpu voltage +75% (no change over previous voltage settings)...

    Will bench later today... ROTTR DX12 bench is rock stable though with everything maxed at 1080p producing 59 -64fps (gets better scores after cache routines complete).

    Thought I would inform, given the number of posts globally regarding instability of this driver... The Division also runs without issue for me at the above clocks...

    My Gpu Vrm1 (gpu) runs at 97 - 100c under serious load (ROTTR maxed, Division, Doom vulkan maxed, Dying Light maxed etc).

    My Gpu Vrm2 (Pcb, ram etc) runs at 73c...

    My Gpu cooler is a RaiJintek Morpheus carrying twin 120mm AlpenFohn Wing Boost 2 fans (unbelievable silent cooling perf which helps immensely)...

    Seems to me that this driver is extremely good for AMD systems built with an R9 300 series Gpu...
