    DX9 game?

    Freesync was not available for dx9 games until recent driver builds.

    Maybe it's not working perfectly in this case, try if it works fine in other DX9 games.

    it's dx9 but the flickering is new with this driver. I've been playing it on this setup for a while.

    You already could use FreeSync in DX9 games. The problem was that CrossFire wasn't supported.

    For anyone interested i've just done some runs in The witcher 3 Novigrad using gpu Z log with crimson and ccc

    15.11.1 CCC gpu-z log - maxed out no HW in 1080P and 4K@30hz

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0N...JWb0ZXUVFOMHc/

    Crimson gpu-z log - maxed out no HW in 1080P and 4K@30hz

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0N...1rV2JaeXFEOUU/

    With the CCC drivers in 1080p I had a couple of slow downs to 45fps for 1 sec, in 4K i had a solid 30fps no slowdowns

    With the crimson drivers, in 1080p I had alot of slowdowns to 30fps, in 4k i rarely hit 30fps, stayed in between 22 and 25 fps

    Can someone confirm what the Max resolution the 290x can do now with Crimson regarding downsampling is. Is it still 3200x1800 officially?

    I've seen 3360x1890. Not sure you can get much higher.

    That's an odd number. Still no 4k so not very happy about that.

    I have this problem in the past, turning up the power limit fix the problem for me.

    Has there been any word from AMD about the next driver release? The hotfix left a lot of things unfixed...

    The prehistoric NVIDIA GTX 650 i use in a HTPC have 4K downsampling option using Nvidia drivers.

    GeDoSaTo has only support for a very few titles who are not DX9, i.e Pillars of Eternity (DX11) is one of the few.

    A 4K monitor defeat the purpose of downsampling.

    Downsampling is a feature who has his use in some games where there is margin to increase quality using it cause you have enough GPU power.

    Gaming in a 4K monitor at 4K without a pair of flagship GPUs is useless for the last couple of years AAA demanding games, 4K gaming is still a dream or even worst: a multicard stuttering/flikering nightmare.

    Buying a 4K monitor to only play at 30 FPS with medium settings or tetris at max (lol) is a nonsense for a gamer.

    In fact single GPU use to have problems even to play latest games at 1440p/60 FPS using better graphic settings.

    In this aspect AMD is like Pepsi ads target and Nvidia is like Coca-cola ads target:

    Only the crazy people (very last GPUs) can have access to 4K downsampling buying AMD.

    Everybody around, even polar bears (all GPUs) can have access to 4K downsampling buying Nvidia.

    You should have tried installing CCC onto the Crimson drivers to see if that will improve performance.

    I would be surprised if that changed anything, this "feature" is on a driver level, nothing to do with a control pannel... and it's not so much a performance issue as it is a clock issue which affects performance, the performance is fine if the clock is at the right speed, clockblocker works for me, and of course i've seen immediate gains (well running as it should be) and even better than with 15.11.1 CCC

    Forget about Crimson for now, guys. It's bugged. Clocks are flutuating for every r9. Go back to CCC or use workarounds to lock full clock (RadeonPro and Clockblock).
