I tested CrossFire with R7 265 on drivers Crimson 14.7.1 and others versions and it didn't work. I had crashes all games, freezing OS with black screen, etc.

Then I installed AMD Catalyst 15.7.1 and it's ok.

So, maybe anyone AMD's programmer will see this topic and fix this problem. I hope, but not sure.



Asus R7 265, HIS R7 265


Windows 10 x64

Catalyst 15.7.1

LG L227WT, 1680x1050, 60 Hz, DVI

Asus Z87-A


Aerocool Strike-X 600W

Kingston HyperX Fury 2x4 Gb 1866 MHz


I just install second video card with any versions Crimson drivers and I have a problem. OS often freezing with black window, but if it isn't freezing then neither games not runs. But with the Catalyst drivers it's ok. That would not be a problem, but Windows every time updates the drivers.
