Installed both versions of the Crimson drivers for my R9 290x card, both versions are riddled with bugs.
Almost every game i play CTD's after a while, when playing, i get all kinds of graphical glitches, messed up UI's,
shaders don't show correct in-game, problems with alpha drawing etc..etc..
When i revert back to the old Catalyst beta drivers 15.11, everything is fine.
Crimson drivers are a real mess.
Is there any ETA on properly functioning Crimson drivers ?
I have to admit, this has been going on for years with AMD, a lot of new driver releases break functionality, and it often takes more then half a year for them to solve the problems.
If i had realized this when i bought my latest card, i would gladly have payed a little bit more for a NVidia card, cause they have a very good reputation with coding drivers.
AMD has not, it seems to me that they are in dire need of capable driver programmers.
I wish i could get a refund because of this, but i suspect bad drivers is not a reason for the vendor to take the card back.
