Any chance of those coming soon?
Yeah, with some good crossfirex profile as well.
This thread > Fallout 4 Bad Anti aliasing Bug
That's not really related to this. I'm just asking for drivers with some general performance improvements.
Well, we did get a beta driver for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, so maybe we'll see another beta this month ?
Really do not want to wait for the December "Crimson" release for this AAA+++ game.
Seeing some benchmarks over the internet, AMD need some extra performance on a driver level alone.
No problems for me so far, 6 hours up, all settings ultra on my 7970.
Fraps showing fairly constant 58-60, some drops to 52(deathclaw fight).
There are graphics settings to play with, might lower some/turn some off.
Edit:- Ultra was fine for wasteland/small settlements. Back to high/med for the big towns/cities.
Yes, it's a much more optimized game than other recently launched games.
The requirements are also fair, despite the 8Gb RAM recommendation, so it should play well with a lot of older (like mine) or newer gpu cards.
Weaker cards in crossfirex would benefit a lot from a crossfirex profile though, but i am a patient man.
Same for me. The game detected my graphics setup and elected for Ultra. I didn't alter any settings.
The game looks very nice. Solid 60fps.(V-Sync on) I see an occasional flash of white but not bad at all.
i7 2600k @ 4.0ghz/ Sapphire 390X. Windows 10x64Home.
edit-- I'm using the 15.8 drivers.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
Dropped back to high/medium settings as some outdoor areas in the bigger cities get too much stutter.
I did mod the FOV to 100,maybe now too much detail to take in.
Back to wandering the wastelands.
Ya, same here. Occasional drops to mid 40's. It was fine at the beginning.
Maybe the next driver set will cure it.
I've tried every trick in the book for cf on fallout 4 and no luck will not spool any more then one gpu up like its running in border mode even though that option is off , for now anyway I just drop resolution to 1440 and use half of my gpu " r9 295x2 " holds a good 60 with some dips here and there ,lowest I ,ve seen is 38 , but ofcource with amd freesync on , butter smooth .
a decent cf profile would work wonders , as ultra settings "except aa " @4k and half my card holds a 30 fps average and drops in the teens at times while freesync makes it smooth , not exactly ideal combat situation .
Its AMD. Wait 3-4 Weeks for a Driver.
But i dont think there will come one.
Yourself and OP don't post any system specs.
Who knows if driver problem for some.
The forum is very quiet(at this time), regarding game problems.
Will add I5 3570K @ 4.5(24/7), still on 15.7(not .1) driver.Win 8.1.Pro.
It's probably quiet because Crossfire owners have bashed their heads so veemently on the desktop trying to make it work they are all comatose. I myself just woke up from that. Performance isn't optimized at all: i don't blame this on Amd, it's probably Bethesda laying discontent among PC gamers (again).
Amd cards struggle with this game, while Nvidia cards get Cpu and for god's sake even Ram bottlenecked!
That's why i hope AMD will include game optimization in the next Catalyst beta, and my letter to Santa this year is devoted to a crossfire implementation that actually RAISES fps and doesn't HALVE them
Best reply on the new AMD forums so far !!!
You Sir just made my day.
It is actually not that bad for a game that has just launched, considering other recent 'AAA' games.
Multi-gpu support is rather low at the moment though, and it spans the whole game industry at the moment.
With me, I'm getting an annoying, frequent stutter. It automatically set my graphics to ultra, but whether it's at Low, or Ultra, the framerate's about the same, but there's a frequent stutter. It happens the same amount no matter the settings.
Two things to try:
1. ULPS: How to disable
2. Overdrive enabled and power limit setting @ +20 (or +50, whichever is highest for your cards)
As silly as it sounds, have you tried disabling Controller Support in the in-game menu settings? I tried every fix I could find with different drivers, V-Sync settings, editing .ini files and a large range of graphics settings and turning off the controller support is the only thing that fixed the Micro-stuttering.
I am hoping so as well. Here is my setup
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz
AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB Video Card
I would say that every hour or two it will crash to desktop saying that my display processor has crashed. I have the latest driver installed. I am able to play on ultra, but I set it to low to disable the godray and then bump everything back up. Obviously I do not have any mods running. I also monitor any heat issues, but with 6 fans and water cooling I do not have any overheating problems. It is most definitely a driver issue, unless I am missing something that is.
I did just find this article. http://www.kotaku.com.au/2015/11/if-youre-playing-fallout-4-on-pc-youd-better-have-a-nvidia-card/
played for 6 hours straight , not a single issue , this game like seems to be all games anymore , has several issues , and the link you posted , we call that advertising .
the fact it was an NVidia game should of been a heads up its gonna need work to play decent , cough batman ....
I'm honestly getting sick and tired of this crap...! Witcher 3 still has flickering problems in Crossfire, my cards doesn't max themselfes out in it either... running like 110% activity combined in borderless windowed mode, and like 160% in fullscreen (but fullscreen makes flickering)
Then there's the small issue of Carmageddon not working decently in Crossfire either, but it's a small title, so I understand it's not a major issue for them...
But now this also?! Really???
Fallout is a huge freaking title that should be taken seriously (just like your costumers and Witcher)
Why isn't Crossfire even almost supported... if we just at least had a half working driver so we could wait for a decent one to show up, but NOOOOO... we have to run it on one GPU only... The game seems fairly good optimized, but that doesn't make me less pissed off... I haven't thrown money after 2 cards to use only one. I knew there was gonna be issues and bad scaling.
But the fact that it actually runs WORSE in forced Crossfire is despicable to say the least
If the costumer service doesn't become better very soon, I'm jumping to nVidia in the future... Not only has AMD not been able to keep up with the performance development and most games these days are optimized for nVidia.
BUT... the least you could do to keep yourselfes desirable is to give your loyal costumers the support needed to run the games in the most optimal way as fast as possible.
While i understand your frustration, since i personally rely on crossfirex to play many games on max settings with decent frames, before jumping to nvidia... just take a look on their forum , or any other game/ software/ hardware forum, and see for yourself if multi-gpu support is any better, even for Fallout 4.
I know... I just feel by now that if I'm supposed to have bad support from the graphics company, I might as well choose the better solution of the two.
The better of two evils, I guess.... Just know I'm sick and tired of this
FreeSync (for later, don't have a monitor with support) and HBM has kept me here for the last time I've spend here...
And HBM IS amazing, but when they concentrate all their effort on that alone and don't provide it with a GPU that can make use of it, then my trust in their competenses is fading...
Been kinda tired of AMD for a while now, and it sucks, because I do think they're the nicest acting company of the two (that stuff also matters to me, which is also why I don't own a PS4) and I've just generally been loyal to them pretty much since I've started building computers something like 15-18 years ago.
I mostly agree with everything you've said.
A word of advice though.... just forget about multi-gpu as it stands right now.
I know it is really needed for some extreme 2k and 4k gaming, but the harsh truth is that it is not really supported nowadays by most of the developers in the first place.
I hope DirectX 12 gaming will improve on that, but in the meantime... no go.
Better get a single very powerful high end gpu, like the FuryX or the gtx 980ti to last for about 2 or 3 years, than spend on two cards that could last for longer but get you more pain.
And, you know what will eventually persuade me to get a PS4 ?
Quantic Dream's next exclusive game...'nuff said
I am sick of it too. I bought the 295X2 and am SOOOOO sick of CF not working. Fallout is horrible, without a driver. I have supported AMD for YEARS too and I am done. I am probably going to list this thing on Ebay and go Nvidia. I am so tired of fighting to make the damn thing work. I really got this card in hopes of Star Citizen and thinking that their Mantle support would make this a card to run it but damn I just give up. I wish AMD had never bought ATI!!!!
Because it is difficult sometimes to distinguish who is patronizing you, who is trolling and who sympathizes, i will give you my evil-sided recommendation for flawless gaming before you go buying an nvidia gpu card:
Get the gtx 690...better yet, 2 of them in SLI... and set quadfire, sorry, 4-way SLI.
He he he.
Get the point ?
I especially think it's despicable when they sell cards with 2 GPUs on 'em...
I know it's not entirely up til AMD to get the multi GPU support from developers, but if they can't promise that their dual GPU cards works as it should, then they shouldn't sell it.
It different for me with people buying two cards to put in their machines (like me), these people are usually more into stuff and whatever... many people don't even know they can put more than one card in their machines... but selling a "single" card with 2 GPUs that needs crossfire support to work properly is just wrong... some people just buy the most expensive they can find and expect their machine to be a beast...
I know it seems like it's the same, but it's not... In my world anyways.
Tell me about it.
I owned both an HD5970 and an HD6990 dual-gpu cards.
I enjoyed both at the time of release, and for the next few years, because most games had a decent crossfirex profile back then (remember frequent CAP releases along the gpu drivers ???), and when that wasn't the case, i could run most games on 1 gpu core on high gfx and 50-60 fps. Always at 1080p, of course.
It is not exactly the same nowadays, cause even if 1 r9 290x can drive most games in high-max settings and 60 fps at 1080p, multi-gpu support is dropped by many developer studios. The second blow is that 2k and 4k 60 fps gaming are becoming more popular, although no current single gpu solution can maintain 60 fps on higher gfx settings at these resolutions.
So, an r9 295x2 dual-card is almost always overkill, but for all the wrong reasons, you know ? It is redundant. It's a useless overpriced hardware that becomes obsolete sooner than you'd wish for or than it should according to the potential raw power.
The only serious difference between a dual-gpu card and 2 separate adapters in crossfirex, concerning gaming, is the added choice/ option to disable crossfirex in a hardware level when using the latter configuration. At the end of the day, both setups become irrelevant if no or poor multi-gpu support is implemented on a software level, and consequently, on a driver level.
That is my experience on dual-gpu cards and game support for this technology, and it covers BOTH CrossFireX AND SLI.
So, while i can personally confirm how bad is multi-gpu support right now, i urge users with similar setups to please stop posting threats about switching gpu brands cause of multi-gpu issues, because, frankly, it makes no sense whatsoever.
Either avoid it in the first place or take the chance and deal with it.
