    I cant check im not home. But i think theyre talking about how they have finally added the new ui similar to the other drivers for non workstations gpus. But you do realize you can install enterprise drivers on any gpu. I use enterprise drivers on my rx 570 all the time.

    Witcher 3 is working good, it is DirectX 11.

    BTW, for OpenGL/OpenCL Capture One 21, Photoshop and Topaz Plug-ins are OK.

    Yeah, it's not a "new gui, it's just the one available for months now on the "gaming" cards.

    Finally, the PRO VII shares the same driver as the other cards......

    Well I'm back home, testing out the 21.Q1. Performance wise is fine, stability is fine, image quality is fine, no problems. Here's the issue though lol. 20.Q3 vs 21.Q1, 20.Q3 blows it out the water in terms of overall gaming performance/framerate. I'm not going back using 20.Q3 on my W5500 though because watch dogs 2 does not record using relive , so I'm going to continue to use the newest drivers. Will be using 20.Q3 on my W7100 on my second rig.

    Just my views though on my set up, the 20.Q3 is the best driver as for performance. 21.q1 is fine though :)

    I wonder why that is, more driver overhead?

    Not sure, I'm just speaking for myself though with my setup and cards. But testing the RX 570 8GB, WX 7100 and my W5500, 20.Q3 gives me the best overall performance in games that i am testing. 21.Q1 performance is not bad though, games run perfectly fine, fps just fine, and more importantly these drivers are more stable than the 20.q3. I'm sticking with the 21.q1 though, because its more stable.

    Nah i don't see it. Seems like they just copy and pasted the new UI and that whole thing about redesign ground up is a lie hahaha. Good drivers, but laziness when it comes to the control panel.

    I am thinking of trying out the enterprise driver , what do you think about the adrenalin vs enterprise driver in terms of stability.

    Well for pc gaming games , emulators like bluestack.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Cheers

    I made a whole thread about it a while ago
    https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/h...-amd-adrenalin-drivers-check-this-out.432500/

    Enterprise drivers overall are faster in performance to me vs Adrenalin. But adrenalin drivers are great too, nothing wrong with them. They seem to keep up with enterprise drivers, but the best enterprise driver IMO and testing is the 20.Q3. But i have a problem recording watch dogs 2 with it, which is why i don't use it.

    As for stability, i never had any issues with any drivers whatever its enterprise or Adrenalin. Gaming is fine, enterprise drivers with emulators are just fine. But i don't use bluestack, but when i tested it there was no issues. I use LDPlayer and GameLOOP which is the best IMO.

    I use enterprise drivers on my RX 570 8GB, never had any issues. Using 20.Q3 with it.
