AMD 7870, 16.2 crimson hotfix = crashing every 10 minutes playing.

me nothing happens to 15.12, but with (16.1 hot fix, and 16.2 hotfix), always fails every game when I play 10 or 15 minutes. "Video controller has failed and has been restored" but the game is closed.

I repeat, this does not happen to me with stable 15.12.

Thanks for the post. You can submit a bug report here.

What games are crashing whilst using 16.1 or 16.2 drivers? You did not provide any information.

Re: AMD 7870, 16.2 crimson hotfix = crashing every 10 minutes playing.

I tried only 2 games before returning to the previous ones, dying light and street fighter v.

I have:

64-bit Windows 10 pro

AMD hd 7870 oc versión.

Motherboard: gigabyte technology co., ltd. Z77-D3H

hd philips 1080p @60Hz HDMI

Intel Core i7-2600 CPU 3.40GHz (8CPUs), oc to 3,8GHz

8 gb ram

AeroCool Templarius Imperator 650W 80 Plus bronze

I do everything right, remove the old and install the new ones, I've done 3 times but the problem remains.

in about 10 minutes playing appears "video controller stopped working" or something like that, and the games closed.

this does not happen to me with stable 15.12. The problem is only in 16.1 and 16.2 .

I understand, thanks for the report. I would keep using 15.12 for now until we release a new driver update.

Re: AMD 7870, 16.2 crimson hotfix = crashing every 10 minutes playing.

I have encountered the same problem. When gaming on heavy games like Black Ops3, screen freeze in last than 10secs. Have to end task at windwos10 desktop screen.

But able to play NBA 2K16.

After I reinstall everything from Windows10 Pro then Crimson 16.2, everything works fine. I am running Crossfire Asus Strix R9 390.

But I encounter another problem. The second GPU activity usage almost always stays at 0% and temperature always remain cool at 40degree.

I have seen lots of reports of dual Radeon cards that are not working in CFX mode right. Eventually AMD will fix the problem, keep in mind most are using one card.
