Thank you for NOT fixing again the flickering in The Division, totally ridiculous.

Re: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3

So, tested the 16.3 drivers for one week. Results are shocking.

Constant stuttering with shader cache on or off. Random crashes with the driver. Low gpu usage. Massive frame drops. This is a mess with all due respect.

Re: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3

What exactly is this Qt5Core.dll activity?

Also why is this dll randomly crashing out on idle? The task manager shows Radeonsettings.exe memory fluctuating like crazy for no apparent reason(6,000k to 90,000k)? The unit is on idle and this process shouldn't be churning up memory like this.

Re: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3

This driver as all Crimson tested on my R9 290 with WRC 5 Rally game got system freeze and black screen. There is a problem with that game, i put last updates and nothing on Win 10 pro x64.... And i got this problem with dying light and crysis 2 some times... random.

Re: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3

Hi.

I updated to 16.3.1 and just tested Crysis 1 and Crysis Wars. All the problems from my last report persist.

Unplayable I am afraid.

I already filed a report.

No more time to test it myself.

Please take a look at it.

Thanks.

Re: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3

I tested Crysis on 16.3, it plays like crap but doesn't crash. Maybe try downloading Natural lighting mod for Crysis 1.4.

Crimson is a poor job still to this day.

Re: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3

i will buy next gpu from nvidia after this bad exp. with R9 290... and all the black screen is because i got stock cooler not an aftermarket, and some games overheat the card, and some not. to no get black screen need a profile fan speed all the f... time... i use sapphure trixx right now... no black screen at defaut clocks, if i go OC ... my card go black screen... very bad cooling forma stock cooler... i hope Polaris will be better because R9 200/300 series from this point of view is a big fail... so i`am stock using default OC witn fan speed profile till next gen GPU`s.
