Re: R9 380X black screen

Hey! I am using 16.8.3 for 3 days and i am happy with it. Performance is better than 16.7.3 and it is stable. Btw, since 16.7.3 there is no more black screen. Crashes continue (much less than previous drivers) but display drivers are recovered instead of black screen and you can continue to use your pc without hard reseting it. Hope this helps.

Edit: I returned back to 16.7.3 as 16.8.3 seems like crashes more than 16.7.3 unlike my previous comment.

Re: R9 380X black screen

Mostly nba 2k16, other games are running fine on both 16.7.3 and 16.8.3. You can try it btw. To be honest, I am still not sure which one is better. I keep changing my drivers but 16.7.3 seems like more stable maybe because it is whql.

Re: R9 380X black screen

I'm tired of waiting whenever i can i will buy and Nvidia card. This situation is annoying. I payed for my 380X and i have crashes, frame drops, stuttering etc. One year and this problems persists. If i can i will never buy another AMD card.

Re: R9 380X black screen

Ok. After detailed benchmarks I am sticking with 16.8.3. Seems like crashes are related to the game not driver. You can install, its performance is much better than 16.7.3.

Re: R9 380X black screen

I have random crashes on 16.8.3 for example in GTA V.  On 16.7.2 i played over 20 hours without any crashes, black screens etc. It's funny. People get pissed off and AMD released stable driver. After month everybody forgot about this issue and they started releasing faulty drivers again.
