    If REDs deliver proper downsampling, possibility to create custom resolutions within driver software like NVIDIA does...I will eat my socks.

    hmm is that still possible with nvidia after implementing DSR in control panel?
    I don't have any issue with VSR tbh, works like a charm.

    Add in high quality and properly supported onboard video encoding, and I may jump ship back to AMD again, after I see how things go, in a year or so.

    Main problem VSR is inconsistent support, and inconsistent resolutions for different hardware, and really poor documentation about it.

    So long as you have something fairly new, it works fine. Anything that's not a R9 285/Fury/R9 380/290/390/things based on those, the support is spotty and the documentation tends to be super wrong in some cases.


    Far as I know, DSR works in steps of up to 4x native resolution on practically any videocard that's still getting driver support from Nvidia, and if it doesn't, custom resolution options are fully built into the drivers, and have let people manually downsample for nearly a decade now.

    The lack of the latter is one of the most jarring things I had to endure when going to AMD last year. The fundamental lack of options, honestly, was just disappointing.

    I'm going to post this again: I want the old WIN32 Control Panel back, .NET GUIs need to GTFO.

    Great news,I hope will be a great tool.

    But I dont like the interface,too much Win10 style and too much grey&black together. :D

    No one will ever be happy with the design. Taste us subjective.
    as long as it easy and functional then it's a win. The UI will grow on you.

    Why not go with a design that actually matches the rest of the UI? There's a reason why apps that use the design elements already in the OS perform much better than custom ones. Btw just look at that first page - 90% of the space dedicated to advertisements - is that really something you think is going to add anything positive to the experience? And as someone already said: social links :puke2:.

    I am not going to judge a book by it's cover. I launch the current CCC once after a driver install to get my settings right, then it is removed from startup and I never touch it again until the next driver. I could not care less what the interface looks like as long as the settings I need are there.

    Only benchmarks and testing will show if real work was done under the hood or if it is just a fancy coat of paint. I will remain hopeful. My little mid-range card could always use a few extra FPS.

    Did they fix the frame limiter to also work in DX9 games or i should keep using riva tuner?

    The performance is already 10 times faster. So that's a step in the right direction.

    Looks awesome! I'm glad they are done with Raptr. This means they are slowly bringing Raptr functionality to the Radeon Software suit. Full per game settings including OC is a good start. Next I hope is video capture and streaming and other most wanted features.

    Some of the things on the GUI I liked, some not (horizontal 'lists' of settings like AA and the likes). At least they are doing something.

    Glad they're moving on from the weird .net implementation to something more modern with QT. Hope it's not a background memory hog as well, though the speed increases give the indication that it will not be. QT is cross platform so we should also at least see the same interface on linux too. All in all ... looking forward to playing with it!

    Well i'm happy they are doing something.
    Altough i hope the Dynamic Framerate Control is now well made, cause the last iteration of it was very bad.

    Another thing that i want to point out, its the fact the auto-update only checks updates in 2 weeks. It should check updates on every boot, or every 24 hours, because for that we will always download updates through website cause its faster.

    The good things i like is the overclock per application, and ofc the interface and the fact that is faster.

    I get you are simple mocking everyone who do not have Fury series gpu's.
