Hello, I'm a new one here. If I want to install your modded driver. What do I have to do?
Hello! I just found out about this modded driver, looks great, but I still do not understand..what benefits will it provide to my r9 380x?
I am using an official driver, last updated a month ago I think.
Oh and does enabling shader cache to always on have some downsides/cons?
Don't ask silly questions, just read the first post on first page.
Support for R9 380x has ended few solid months ago, those drivers let you use newest fixes, and let you play newer games.
I think the user was just asking for a bit extra help, some people do genuinely need it, to be fair it is at first a complicated procedure and if your not confident with it you best leave it
to be fair, it is hard to read the original post, V3 v2 then v3 of somthing else, i understand the OP is not an english native speaking man, but a one link solution would be appreciated, but i understand the OP wants to help most of the old video cards users.
It kinda depends of what GPU do you have, but the foolproof steps would be:
1) First check what generation your GPU is (Terascale, GCN or Polaris/Vega/Navi).
Now, head to the corresponding section here:
2)a) If it is Terascale it's simple. Just download the first driver from the list, unzip and install.
(I don't have much experience with Terascale, but I think that's it).
2)b) If GCN, Polaris or later:
Download the drivers from here (in this example, I choose GCN), and also a dependencies file. Just one of each.
You don't need to worry about the additional addons for now.
Regarding the dependencies, you can choose either Classic or Windows Store (WinStore) edition. Both should be basically the same, but when in doubt I would go for the classic.
And about the driver release, the best is usually the newest one. (Last one in the list. In this example it would be "( 21.10.1 V3 )")
3) Now unzip the downloaded file wherever you want, and put the dependencies file you downloaded into the "Dependencies" folder.
4) Now you can run NzSetup.exe and start the installation.
Note: If this is your first time installing one of these mods, I suggest that you download DDU, and delete your current video drivers first.
The installer is quite explanatory then, but if you feel lost, just choose the first option both times (AMD Driver Installation, and Begin Install AMD Radeon Drivers)
Remember to choose "Yes" when the system asks you if you are sure you want to install these drivers, and do not choose "Restart" when it finishes installing the dependencies.
"Don't ask silly questions, just read the first post on first page."
Gehts noch?! Whats up with you, dude?
Sowas geht gar nicht! This way you make new users run away.
i'm having this message from War Thunder a few days installe the drivers, idk how fix it.
in some games like APEX, i see some errors trying to open the game, but nothing important
Try WHQL Fixer on NzSetup
Install driver again....I have the very same problem the thing is that you probably have some program like Advanced System Care installed on your system and after a week or so when you run it to check your system and delete the "junk" it will also delete some of the driver packages in Nimez drivers....
How is the GCN Driver performing in Windows 11? Has anyone tested it? I'm not sure whether to upgrade to Windows 11 or keep Windows 10? My PC doesn't have TPM 2.0 (Xeon E5-2630 V2, X79), so I didn't want to test it yet. But if there are performance gains, I'm in.
W11 would perform worse (Windows on launch day, anyone? lol - Also more bloatware, probably), best to give it some time
It performs fine even a bit better then win10...I also have X79 platform with the Xeon 2697 V2 40Gb Asus Sabertooth mobo and R9 Fury...I installed Win11 22449.1000 devs.build(and after that I blocked updates via Zub) also you will need TPM hack and you can install win 11 over yours win10 and keep all files&programs....In short under the hood system is almost the same as win 10 but apparently for newer and this latest Intel CPU's that will arrive soon it supposed to perform much better.....
Is it possible to use old ui switcher addon for choosing which app should be on power saving (integrated gpu) or performance (dedicated gpu) mod? Current adrenalin ui version failing to automatically use dedicated gpu in some cases with my APU dual graphics (both gpu GCN 1).
Time to upgrade to AMD
but yea, upgrade to W11 since its at least giving a small performance boost.
driver eta of 21.10.2?
Sure, it can. I just tested.
Installed on my R9 380 4GB from powercolor, seems ok until now. It managed to fix a regression which caused stutters in some games, it doesn't makes the driver UI glitchy, which is also a plus comparing with the latest official driver. I didn't have it long enough to say driver time outs are gone, but at least this is on par with the best experience I had before with any driver.
Really strange that we haven't heard from @mylipho15 for several days now.
Hope everything is ok.
Was thinking the same. He changed the title but never gave a feedback which is strange hope he is ok.
