    This is CPU dependant.
    I have 3 and in BF1
    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 3

    If you have good CPU then 2-3 is a must.... rest will get better FPS in 1

    Yes i'm in the Software Vanguard program but early driver are buggy and crash my system so I stay with the stable ones that come out from AMD. also yeah the web page show a blank page which means today the driver comes out.

    All those "Not Authorized" hits get logged and the Website Manager prolly got sick of his Error Log getting pounded with hits to that page, so he stuck a blank page there so that there is no error generated.

    I'm a bit worried about this driver. It took a long time to show up and now they're having last minute issues with it, it's probably going to be released with a ton of issues but with the State of Decay 2 support.

    Well hopefully the known issues are listed in the release notes, having some AMD engineer popping up on the Reddit section or AMD's own forums and chirping in "Known issue!" when someone asks about something with the driver and it's nowhere to be found in the release note documentation is never fun.
    (Updating said notes until the next driver rolls around as more problems are identified wouldn't hurt either.)

    That used to bother me a lot -> issue never get listed under KNOWN ISSUES, so you are left thinking you're the only idiot in town, and then BAAM - it gets listed under Resolved issues

    Yep, or when they fix something but then in the next driver it breaks again and they don't say anything about it, only when they fix it again 2 drivers later while you stay like "but this problem was fixed, right? must be my rig"

    I wonder if they do that so no one can complain (and point to a reliable source; driver changelogs) )that it took them months to fix a particular bug.

    I think they have to confirm/test that something actually is bugged..for them to put it on the patch notes...
    Same as the fixed bugs...they test them and confirm its fixed on their machines..
    They can't put in the known issues every bug they see written on the internet...its not logic.
    There are a lot of people out there just post ''bugs'' but its not actually a driver problem..its something else on their OS.

    The pre 18.5 driver had issues BSOD and problems with DX 11 games that close at random in games. I learn my lesson not to install them due of the bugs. hopeful the driver comes out today fix Samsung CHG70 random black screen with Freesync 2.

    They can say that something is a "known issue" up until the last minute. Of course they have to test things, but that doesn't mean that they have to be honest about the timings.

    *That* is interesting, I was wondering about Far Cry 5 randomly closing and then a couple of crashes in Watch_Dogs 2 however I couldn't really find a way to reliably replicate the issue.
    Will be interesting to see if 18.5.1 will make a difference, however Watch_Dogs 2 is a known game to have various stability issues and Far Cry 5 can bug pretty easily so it might have been specific to the pre-release version for all I know.

    Still interesting information though. :)

    So can you explain why AMD never added the 100% GPU usage in the release notes when it got acknowledged by an employee as a known issues?

    He gives you a workaround. So really a not an issue:

    AMD_Kyle RTG Engineer 100 points 3 months ago

    Hey just to let you know we do know about this issue - and it turns out to be pretty complex to resolve.

    As a workaround for now you can kill the AMDDVR process which should return the GPU utilization to the correct levels.

    I think he says a lot more then most times.
