    Yea. One might argue that they must be very buggy considering the amount of bugfixes in every changelog with quite frequent releases, but honestly, they are fixing bugs I have never noticed or didn't even know existed so it's a pretty good driver. It's been good since december 2015 aka. Crimson release. Very happy with the additional features in ReLive update as well. Good work AMD. It took a lot of time to get there (remember 3-5 years ago?), but you did it.

    There are no bugless drivers.

    Sure! That applies to most software in general actually, not just drivers...

    Being using AMD Drivers for 6850, 6950, 7950 and Rx 480 (win 7 to win10). Honestly I have no issues, I like the Crimson edition very much.

    Wow AMD have beaten Nvidia on this driver update for these two new games. Nothing as of yet from green. If that's a sign of things to come that would be awesome...keep it going red team! Really hope Ryzen and Vega stick it to the current 'powers that be'.

    AMD/ATI has historically been lacking when it came to drivers and usually made up for the unoptimized performance by just using a more powerful GPU. Meanwhile Nvidia has been known to use slightly weaker hardware with excellent drivers. Personally, I'm not sure what I'd prefer - Nvidia's way of doing things is theoretically better, but, only if their optimizations aren't application-specific. Otherwise, AMD's approach is more generic and future-proof, but makes the product inherently less efficient. Anyway... It seems lately both brands are slowly drifting from their stereotypes. I'm not saying Nvidia's drivers are bad by any means, but they are becoming very bloated, Vulkan support leaves much to be desired, and their Linux drivers are getting very far behind (they used to be on-par with Windows).

    AMD still has a long way to go but it's nice to see drivers are a big priority to them. Crimson is a solid milestone to separate themselves from their Catalyst Control Crap past. Kind of like what MS did with Edge (except I actually prefer IE11...)

    AMDGPU Pro is better than the NVIDIA model by far for Linux.

    From what I recall, Nvidia still outperforms amdgpu-pro in most tests. But, I would have to say it has a very promising future, and AMD's Linux efforts are tremendous (especially when you consider what they accomplished in such a short amount of time).

    It's a better approach as the parts of the driver that touch the kernel are open source and they follow changes like new kernel versions and Wayland much much faster.

    RX 480 Mouse Corruption

    I'm still getting the mouse corruption with my RX 480. The mouse will turn into a line with dots and a reboot is the only fix. Why can't they fix this?:bang:

    Which Windows version are you running? This never happened to me after I used 280x bioses.

    Is this a WHQL Driver??
    Of course I always use latest DDU before installing.

    ESO Grass flickering bug from last driver is still present.

    This driver is not WHQL, DLL's and SYS's are with incorrect names in this driver, I think AMD uploaded a wrong version.

    As Warkratos pointed out to me on Reddit and here these are indeed not signed...

    As he said there also can check them in DXdiag
