    Oh I was so excited after the leak and the install. And then the more or less only game I play, STO, crashed. :-/
    I had several drivers installed lately so I used DDU and manually checked some places for leftovers and did a clean install.
    Still, crash to desktop. With and without CF. Fullscreen or windowed. There is an unplanned maintenance later, I will wait till after that until I go back.

    [Correction: While writing and playing around with the options, I started one time in save mode screwing up all the graphic settings. Manually adjusting back to my original ones and it's running now :)]


    Other things so far:

    Edge-Detect-Anti-Aliasing is gone

    Power-Play-Settings for notebooks are gone, at least in my case.

    Startup is not faster here: For once it's not in the auto-start(not even a deactivated entry in the task manager) and second it does not open on first try. I have to double-start it.

    The new settings app itself is better sorted and fast, but I'm a bit disappointed, that the old CCC is still needed for a few things, hope they get that done until December.



    So for me, this is a feature decreasing driver and I hope this is because of it's beta state.

    Amazing!
    Can't wait to try it.
    I'm at work, through TeamViewer.

    BTW, where is Overdrive? Can't find it.

    Just to tell you all that I will be installing these and testing them later. I know everyone wanted to know whether or not I intended to do it.
    Also, stay tuned to see me post no feedback on drivers whatsoever.

    Well what did you expect.. You are already at max gpu usage in both cases ;)

    250mb vram difference can also mean less streaming, I personally rather have alittle hihger vram then more swaping..

    RIFT mmo is such example, game engine or was it driver changed to lower allocation - end result was more hitching.

    So Vsync only seems to work for me when I set it globally, not when I set it per game. Anyone know if it's just me?

    Now my Fury X is actually lowering it's core speed in cpu bound situations. Was there something about this in notes?

    Kinda proves also that there is no overhead reductions.

    Wondering about the same, though the official release is also tagged as Beta 7 and the display driver version is the same in both (15.300.1025.0).

    Nothing really, i just posted that cause some users wanted to see if
    witcher 3 had any difference and i happened to have it on my pc.

    BTW does anyone know how to use the custom resolutions? Cause once
    you verify them, they don't appear anywhere

    One difference so far is the installer for Beta 7 contained CCC still and the official release does not.
