Ready...set...give us your questions!
UPDATE 12/18: Thank you all for asking great questions about Radeon Software Crimson Edition. Each and every one of your questions below have been passed on to the driver development team. Over the past few days we’ve received many inquiries for specifics fixes and requests for new features to be added. We would love to talk more details about what the future hold for Crimson, but we are not able to answer any questions about upcoming releases due to development roadmaps and timelines. We will continue to pass any new questions to the team and keep you up-to-date on any changes to the driver.
Are there any plans to incorporate a 'Clean Install' option into the install wizard? I believe this would eliminate the need for some users to rely less on DDU and other third party driver removal software for when some PC's do not cooperate with newer drivers.
Will we see (free-)synced video playback? Especially for 23.976.. fps videos this would be killer... eliminated stutering, no need of 3:2 pull down or whatever, just framedoubling, sync and go!
Is there a chance of Overdrive implementing a custom fan curve option, as well as displaying GPU clock values in raw numbers instead of percentages above/below the stock?
Has any thought been put into SteamOS support, specifically some sort of controller friendly interface for tweaking settings from my couch?
Could we please get an option to manually set the length of flip buffer queue for DirectX 9, 10 and 11 applications?
It's best when users have control about this, as the current solution is untransparent and sometimes not optimal. Nvidia has this option in the driver and it's popular.
When can we expect CPU driver overhead optimization for DX11? In CPU limited scenarios, sometimes Nvidia is quite faster.
