Do you know where to file bug reports?
Since i rolled back from crimson to latest catalyst aswell I'd like to ask a simple question:
On crimson drivers - Is there a way to create two separate global profiles and place their shortcuts (for web browsing and for gaming) on desktop to activate one of them just by double click ?
Because I'm using my PC for gaming and for web browsing (aren't we all? ) ... and sometimes alt-tabbing games for quite some time I'd like to have features that are present in Catalyst but i can't seem to find them in new crimson drivers.
In Catalyst i'm using AMD overdrive settings like:
Desktop (lowest possible):
- power -20%
- GPU clock 300MHz
- Memory Clock 150MHz
Gaming (default settings for my R9 270X):
- power 0%
- GPU clock 1100 MHz
- Memory Clock 1400 MHz
Both are placed on my desktop as shortcuts.
When I'm just web browsing, downloading from steam etc I'm using desktop settings since I don't need my graphics card to be used at all.
If I decide to play some games I just double click my Gaming shortcut - settings are changed for performance and everything is fine... I don't want to create a profile for every game - i use Gaming profile for every game. When I alt+tab from game - because I need to do something else for say 15-30 min away from PC - i just double click my Desktop shortcut, switch off my display and do stuff. Before switching back to game I just double click Gaming and that's it.
I don't find it too comfortable when i need to open the crimson app everytime i need to change some settings. Don't really care if it's looking great... I need it to be functional. If it was working fine in catalysts then why it has been disabled in crimson ?
Is there a way to create two global profiles for overdrive, and place their shortcuts on desktop ?
I looked to make a new Global profile also since the AMD provided one didn't work properly but it was a fruitless task.
To do what you're wanting I'd stick with the latest catalyst driver because Crimson is seriously flawed.
I have this wee program that I wrote to execute different profiles dependent on the game running (see image) but it would be no good for you because it is looking for the programs process to be either running or not.
I'm having serious issues of my own with Crimson. May I ask how you rolled back to the latest version of Catalyst? It appears the link on the AMD website to download previous versions of the software is dead.

Because of AMD's rep for flaky drivers, I always keep at least the last 2, the last beta and the last released drivers.
I'm assuming you're meaning 64bit Windows 10, 8.1 or 7 drivers
If you're after the last beta then you can get that by clicking on the "Latest Windows Beta Driver" http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/latest-catalyst-windows-beta.aspx
If you after the last released driver then go here https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/Drivers/AMD_Catalyst/
Thank you very much. I'll do this right away.
