  • Experiencing FPS drops for a minute or so, it will go very slow and stuttering, CPU spike definitely still happens just not as severe as previous drivers. VRAM Memoryleak seems to not be the reason as it stays well under 2000 VRAM from all Low Settings. You must be running the R9 380 2GB in order to reproduce this issue.
  • Battlefield Hardline and Battlefield 4, Started playing Hardline when I purchased the R9 380 One year ago, game updates have no effect for me this past year for both games and I never played BF4 until a month or so after I started playing Hardline. Mantle acts the same for both games.
  • 1080p All Low Settings except Mesh Quality is set to Ultra
