    15.5 screentearing

    yvonio

      Hi,

       

      Downloaded 15.5 couple of days ago, to optimize the Witcher 3. However, it gives me a lot of screentearing. In all games, even in youtube vids I get screentear. I am 100% sure this was not the case with previous drivers.

       

      Any word on this issue? I kind of feel like going back to the previous version...

          Have you tried reinstalling the driver? which driver did you have before?

              Just reinstalled. I'll reply back later to see if it helped. I was on latest 14 version, not sure which one exactly, but I'm sure it was the latest.

                Welp. Still have the same issue. Became apparent right away that reinstalling did not help.

                 

                Ah well, I'll just reroll and wait for 15.5 to leave beta... The Witcher 3 ran fine before anyway.

                      Well, if ever I've seen a passive agressive reply. Anyways. It's the driver, I rolled back to 14.2 and the screentearing issues were gone. Answers:

                       

                      1: Desktop

                       

                      2: Windows 7 (64-bit)

                       

                      3: AMD Phenom II X4 965

                       

                      4: AMD Radeon HD 7870

                       

                      5: Well that's sort of the point... It was fine on 14.2 and when I installed 15.5 beta screentearing started.

                       

                      6: 8GB RAM

                       

                      7: Cooler Master GX Lite 700W

                       

                      8: No overclocking whatsoever.

                       

                      9: See 5, first appeared when I installed 15.5 beta.

                       

                      10: Roll back to 14.2 and reinstall 15.5: did not work. Roll back to 14.2 (not reinstalling 15.5): worked, issue is solved.

                       

                      Settings: Maxed out every game.

                       

                      That should do it.
