    15.9.1b Driver Crash - R9 390x, Windows 10 x64 Pro


      I bought a 390x (XFX Double Dissipation) on launch day to replace my now-broken 290x. Everything was going great until I switched over to Windows 10 (x64, Professional). Ever since then I've been getting messages in intensive games such as GTA V or the Star Wars Battlefront Beta claiming that "the display driver has crashed and recovered," or something along the lines, while my game freezes. I saw online that a number of users reported that 15.9.1b solved this problem, but this isn't the case for me.




      This is obviously incredibly frustrating for someone who spent as much as I did on their graphics card. It isn't even necessarily the fault of AMD since I'm seeing a lot of Nvidia users with similar issues. Any help is very welcome.

      Thanks in advance.

              I've also noticed artifacting on The Witcher 3. Flashing infrequently like it's going to crash. Not dissimilar in look to an unstable overclock. Any one else having this issue?


              I've tested with other profiles, and experienced no similar artifacting (albeit poorer performance.) Which leads me to believe that the default profile is bugged in some way?


              Definitely playable, just detracts from the experience.


              Edit: Disabling VSync seems to have solved the artifacting - Could also have something to do with Frame Pacing - Unsure

              Only remedy I've been able to find is running games in full screen mode. It's highly annoying, but no choice.

              If you are running Raptr/Plays, then even full screen mode wont help.


              On my rig, borderless windowed mode will crash the display drivers in all recent games: StarWars Battlefront, Metal Gear Solid 5 TPP, Black Desert Online, FF XIV Heavensward.

              MGSV is more stable than the others, but driver still crashes sometimes.

                Yep! unfortunately, the only way to remedy this issue for now is to run all the DX11 games in full screen mode. It's annoying for a person with a multi-monitor system like my self, but it's not a big deal really. Regardless, this has been a know issue for a WHILE now, and AMD has done nothing to fix it. THAT is not Ok. you hear me AMD? That is not Ok! I'm all for team Red and all, but get your stuff together damn it!
