Re: Whats up with these new Fury cards, Video Tdrfailure, Atikmpag.

Re: Whats up with these new Fury cards, Video Tdrfailure, Atikmpag.

I'm seriously thinking of going green...  This has really put a bad taste in my mouth for amd cards.

Also I'm running a 2k monitor right now with future plans of going up to a 34" monitor so I need more than the r9-390x, then you look at the less than stellar driver support we are already experiencing with these new amd cards, I can see no plus in going with a 390x

Re: Whats up with these new Fury cards, Video Tdrfailure, Atikmpag.

I have verified both of my old gpu's, which are an Gigabyte HD6850 and a MSI r9-290 run flawlessly in my new system...

My new system:

I5-6600k@4.4ghz

GigabyteGA-z170x-gaming g5

16gig Gskill ddr4 3000mhz

samsung 850evo m.2

Windows 10

I installed both my old cards exactly the same way I installed the failed Fury and any other gpu I would install, and have pretty much done it this way for the last 10 yrs..

Download CCC, DDU and Latest AMD drivers..

System on with old card installed, I go to ctrl panel--Progams/uninstall program-- highlight AMD install manager--- click uninstall/change---make sure everything is checked and accept to uninstall..  Then I run CCC and DDU, power down the system, turn the psu switch to off and unplug.. open case, remove old card, insert new card, close up case, plug in psu, turn psu on...  turn system on, after it gets booted up and install latest drivers.

Both old cards installed perfectly..

Now over the years of using AMD cards, Why hasnt AMD made it a default action to remove everything when you UNINSTALL AMD DRIVERS with AMD's uninstall utility, instead of having to use CCC and DDU as an added step, this completely amazes me, this is 2016, not 1995..

Why not include it within the default uninstall utility?

I even ran Unigine Valley at default install settings with the hd6850 and r9-290 in both systems, quite a bit of boost in fps between the two, lol...  Actually the fps difference between my I5-6600k@4.4ghz and my FX8350 parked and locked @4.2ghz with the r9-290 was quite a bit..   The I5-6600k saw a 27fps increase between with the fx8350 running with a 1680x1050 monitor and the I5-6600k on a 2560x1080 LG 29um55 uwhd monitor..   That was a fun test..

It also voids your warranty if you had one.

You should not have to flash your vbios to fix a new gpu, thats ridiculous, but wouldnt surprise me being its an amd gpu.

For anyone else reading this forum, its surprising that most people have no problems updating the BIOS on a motherboard to 'fix' issues, like the Kaby Lake compatible Z270 I just bought which had 3 BIOS released inside a month. So why not on a GPU?
