Depending on games. But at least game or system crashes reduced a lot better
you won't notice any improvement on these snakeoil drivers.
These aren't "snakeoil" drivers.
If you would've done some before and after benchmarks, you'd see improvements across the board from NimeZ drivers. Not 10% improvement or anything, but small improvements nontheless.
snakeoil is snakeoil, your performance improvements are a lie, only way for a person who absolutely isn't an amd employee or has access to kernel service source code is to toggle driver cheats that drop quality.
one word comes to mind Astyanax bridge, if you think drivers are so bad why come here to rant
All You can do is to drop DLL from faster drivers into this and voila
This is same as ATI Omega back in the days -> Good moded driver.
You'll need group Hug
Hey guys I also installed this modded driver but just with a bit different method maybe even more easy for some people that could not figure how to do it and seems like it's working just fine....so here how I did it:
I installed first 21.3.1 Driver normally then after that I installed over that this modded driver via NZSetup.bat and seems like everything working just fine also you can install moded driver via device manager/update driver/have disk/your directory with modded driver
Ok here is the picture bellow where you can clearly see the differences in open GL,Vulkan and actual driver version
Suggestion turn off all overlays seems that it can be messed sometimes
Tested in Time Spy and played War Thunder seems Great also no Free Sync issues like in 21.5.2
BTW not sure if anyone mention this before but FSR working even on older drivers in fact working also on older Nvidia cards fine..I tested FSR with R9 Fury in RiftBreaker and working fine it's seems really good in 4K where you not loose that much in image quality and gain a lot in FPS but in 1080p looks a bit messy....
FSR works on any GPU capable of DirectX11, Shader Model 5.
if you don't like it, why you still rant this drivers?
also, rant without providing real data like benchmarks makes your rant useless.
Thanks For the driver support. Works on R9 Nano.
Keep up the great work
Well there is a difference between snakeoil and this.
You don't need the source to modify AMD drivers, since most tweaks are registry ones, which enable some tweaks that AMD had them disable for compatibility reasons (which now aren't even used), plus you can also change DLL-S, and stuff to make some changes into it. Plus, the GCN one is awesome, if you say it's snakeoil, why "we" can still use latest drivers even with HD 7750? That's right, changing only some drivers and things meanwhile the kernel is the same. Ezpz
Work fine with HD7850 and HD7950 ! Great work thx !
I wish If there is a way to OC HBM again on R9 Fury Series maybe OP can figure what locked the memory to work always on 500Mhz...I mean it's certainly something in the drivers..
what last "working" driver you can overclock the HBM?
Thanks for this !
16.12.2 i believe, i was going to ask the same question.
17 drivers is when they screwed it over.
What your R9 Fury vendors? Sapphire, Gigabyte, ASUS, XFX?
Mines Asus nano with modded bios t-mod etc
Hey first TY for doing all of this.....
Yeah I didn't tried that driver but searching on the net many people claim that is 16.12.2 the last driver where is possible to OC HBM.....btw I am using R9 Fury Sapphire Nitro and just for your info it is possible now to use Sapphire Trixx or some other OC program and change HBM speed but the problem is even if is registered on higher clock in Gpu-Z or any other programs the actual GPU memory will still work only on 500Mhz so it is definitely locked via drivers......
Looking at the Fury OC dedicated thread here on Guru3D looks like Fury owners were OCing HBM even on 17.x.x drivers.
