    That´s what I meant.

    Very Impressive.

    And that mag is the leading german plattform for gaming benchmarks.

    Oh my god! Performance in Project CARS isn't fixed yet. When it was in early acces people think that it's an unstable alpha or beta, but now... Well I'll buy it when it will be fixed with a patch or a driver.
    But how about Witcher 3? I preordered it in august 2014. I can't wait a proper driver for 6 months. If it will run like Project Cars, 980ti is mine!

    I don't believe that CDProject is that kind of company. We'll see.

    So this driver is only crossfire profiles for GTA5 no other performance improvements for GTA?

    Just wondering if I should bother with it if I don't use crossfire.

    Last official news i read is there is no official ETA to add Freesync crossfire support.

    Maybe they are delaying the next drivers launch due to this problem.

    BTW Matt, is any driver coming to fix the Project Cars, or it is Slighty Mad Studios that is going to release a patch for the game fixing AMD performance?

    Matt, any reason for non-freesync users to update?

    Alright, but this improving of performance, should already been done while the game was in developing.
    The game was in early access for more than 1 year, i guess even more.

    Its bad for AMD to let a game being released with this performance.
    Even worse when in the first day, people are more demanding since they buy it at full price.
    Even worse is that websites do benchmark the game at day one, and usually AMD comes very bad in those results.

    Its not your fault Matt, and i don't want your answer for this.
    But this keep happen over and over and over again.
    The fact that this game was in early acess is even more shocking when AMD had access to it since the beggining.

    We've had a Crossfire profile in our drivers for Project Cars for a while now, so it's not as if we've only just started optimising for it. We'll work with the dev to see what other improvements can be made.

    Anyone suffering from low performance issue in project cars game, rename main executable file to "Dirt4.exe". I've seen reports mentioning that this change improves performance a lot on radeon gpus.

    Look Matt i understand, i just find it odd.
    And not saying that its only AMDs fault, even more the SMS have a very big parternship with nvidia, we are all aware of that.

    But still its bad news.
    Not sure if it was AMD or SMS that let this being released in this state.
    But for the good sake of AMD, this can't continue to happen.

    I don't care of waiting for a fix, but many people maybe will eventually spread the word everytime a game is not playable on AMD.
    This type people don't care if it is AMD or the dev team or gameworks fault.
    And AMD have bad reputation already, everytime something happens on PC, people usually tend to say.. "ho its AMD drivers fault", even when they aren't XD

    With things like this happening all the time, many people will avoid AMD, its an avalanche getting bigger and bigger.

    Take this as an outflow, Matt.
    Thanks :)
