    15.200.1036.0. Windows Update refused to give me 1040.
    I did try 1040 manually, but didn't notice any difference.
    Still, might just be placebo.

    1040 is still the overall leader here :)

    1040 was the buggiest mess of a driver i ever did use and had less fps then 1023.5

    I might well be about to remove the 1040 DLLs from pCARS' root folder for the last time, because I think these new 1023.10s by themselves give fractionally better frametime when driving solo for me and they are at least an equal in terms of fps. :)

    These drivers are a bit fasters than 1040 driver for me. Though 3dmark api test can go to margin of error. Games are working smoothly.

    I'll delete my 1040 dll's and give the entire driver a whirl.

    Get your device ID from device manager. Find it in driver INF file.
    For Fury it is like:
    "%AMD67B0.1%" = ati2mtag_Hawaii, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_7300&SUBSYS_0B361002

    Bold is code/settings used. Fury X proper one is ati2mtag_R7000.

    At bottom of driver is another interesting section with settings:
    [ati2mtag_Hawaii.GeneralConfigData]
    MaximumDeviceMemoryConfiguration=256
    MaximumNumberOfDevices=4

    [ati2mtag_R7000.GeneralConfigData]
    MaximumDeviceMemoryConfiguration=128
    MaximumNumberOfDevices=4

    Wonder if that does anything or just says that it can address 128GB of virtual memory.

    My guess is that you refer to Device Strong Name in the Device Manager properties of the card.

    For mine I get this:
    Code:
    oem26.inf:cb0ae41405cb194b:ati2mtag_R575:15.200.1040.0:pci\ven_1002&dev_6798&subsys_3001174b
    
    So If you wish to change driver path, how do you actually go about doing it?

    There was talk yesterday of a 15.20 Catalyst release for Linux at Phoronix. They had info that release is imminent. Fingers crossed.

    Anybody taking bets on the greek alphabet letter they will use?

    In your case just look for 6798, it will find line like this:
    "%AMD6798.1%" = ati2mtag_R575, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6798

    Change bold part for something you see at same place around.
    Then take AMD6798.1
    And look for it at bottom of file for actual naming:
    AMD679A.1 = "AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series (Engineering Sample - WDDM v2.0)"
    Change Magenta name to something distinctive as you want to do manual installation of driver and pick that corresponding name.

    There are likely to be many 6798 devices/revisions listed at top of INF file and many corresponding names at bottom. If you have trouble finding your custom name during driver installation or other more compatible device ID is overriding yours, then you can safely remove those other names and similar device IDs from INF.

    And btw, benchmarking:
    Dead Island:
    15.200.1040 - Hawaii code path (Tahiti path did not enable me to get downsampling from 2160p.)
    Maxed out. Texture LOD settings "-1" enforced via RadeonPRO.
    1080p: 120fps (limit set in RP)
    1440p: 107~115 (locked by game, even main menu before loading any geometry runs on that fps)
    2160p: 107~115 (locked by game, even main menu before loading any geometry runs on that fps)
    In all resolutions fps was limited by software and GPU not fully utilized. DirectX 9 game.
    ----------
    W10 Driver 15.200.1023.10 Fiji code path:
    1080p: 207fps+
    1440p: 198fps+
    2160p: 124fps+
    What a change.

    Thank you man! Just installed on windows 10 10162 and Sapphire r9 280...

    Did a clean install using DDU, But just as a heads up, OpenCL doesn't seem to be enabled acording to GPU-Z.

    VSR and frame limiter working good.

    Thanks for this. I'll try my card with the Fiji codepath, because why the hell not.

    Ok peeps :)

    So I installed 15.200.1023.10 on my GCN 1.0 MSI twin frozr III r7870 OC...

    They give me virtually the same performance as 15.200.1023.7 (which I received officially via WU)... The difference is 7 points faster in heaven benchmark and 22 points faster in HeavensWard FF benchmark...

    The trade off is micro stutter introduced back into GTA V (15.200.1023.7 run my games perfectly with improved performance, latest & last gen)...

    So for me, the only Win10 driver to work correctly & boost GPU output for my GCN 1.0 card is 15.200.1023.7...

    Cheers peeps :thumbup:

    Thanks for you post, this info is golden.

    Now more work with 15.7 WHQL.

    Good times for test junkies!

    Another benchmarking:
    W10 Driver 15.200.1023.10 Fiji
    1080p: 128~205fps
    1440p: 130~202fps
    2160p: 95~192fps
    Improvement on lower resolution is notable. At 2160p card is quite utilized, so no improvement there:

    It is 3times same section of game where hordes of smaller orks are sieging camp on ground, and then at end there is 1st ground boss fight.

    Well on initial testing these seem to be running nicely, and my core clocks are sitting happy compared to some of the older Win 10 drivers where they seemed to fluctuate more.

    Within stones throw of my best Firestrike run with these (which was on 1040), only ~70 marks difference, and everything seems to be working so far :)
