Re: Have amd abandoned R200 users? There is still no target fan speed control in wattman. This means I can't update past 16.11.5, the last good driver.

Chill don't work with crossfire. AMD refuse to tell us if they are going to implement it.

"We don't give out information on future features"

They don't particularly care about "old" graphics card or users with crossfire.

If you do care AMD, why don't we have chill in crossfire or at least an explanation to why we don't have it???

Your drivers are sometimes good, but not so good that we don't have to use 3rd party software like MSI after burner or SAPPHIRE TriXX.

Now not even those work as they used to thanks to you. Yes, you broke the code somewhere.

Thanks AMD.

I see from one of your earlier posts, that you have target temp. available.

Are you posting here to offer OP some assistance/insight re the topic, as to why you have it, he doesn't.?

You have no problem with MSI Afterburner with newest driver? Fans spinning up and down with no reason or program just stops working?

I used SAPPHIRE TriXX for a cool card in and out of games. That won't work now 😕 And Crimson just won't do as it told. So a hotter R9 290 is what i have to live with even in idle.

And yes, same for MSI Afterburner.

Are you?

I don't know why he is missing target temp. I think AMD needs to get back to work and then perhaps provide an answer.

MSI Afterburner works correctly with Crimson 17.2.1 on my system.

Is your target temp automatically set as high as possible?

I did not set the target temp.

I set up my own fan speed curve (picture below)

afterburner-user-fan-curve.png

and enabled user-defined fan (the green border around fan speed in the picture below)

afterburner-user-fan-on.png

When the GPU is fully loaded (Battlefield 1 multi-player) the temperature is around 85°C, room temperature is 25°C.

I think the problem is with AMD. Over the life time of this card I'd say I've had good performance on about 50% of games. Now with these new drivers I'm experiencingredients almost 100% crash to play ratio. Truly awful. I've contacted support and haven't gotten a reply. The 200 series is being abandoned. As a customer who has a r9 290 xfire setup I expected it last longer than this. I will be replacing my amd components with more reliable hardware in coming months.
