Power Control set to +max% in Crimson? High Performance set in power settings?
By my experience with modding skyrim since the 2011, the Skyrim is a lady which needs constant care.
Never use FPS limiter because it will be vorse and without vsync skyrim will behave weird ( ini vsync and setup your vsync in driver to application controlled).
Can you please send me your Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini so i can look it up? Send it here as a link or send me to email@example.com
Also revert your drivers to old ones before Crimson . Windows 10 unfortinetly has problems with some older games like Skyrim and i've seen already simmilar issues by couple of friends.
xenonix The ini files are default as its a fresh install no mods or ini file edits at all. The game just does not perform properly since windows 10.
My system is always set to high performance and power control is set at 50%
With the latest crimson beta x rebirth now crashes and actually looses the signal to my monitor.
AMDMatt, the pre Crimson drivers are the same for directx 9 titles as the Crimson drivers, all are either underperforming or stuttering and hitching in windows 10. Did not happen in windows 7, 8 or 8.1
I am finding many of the drivers all have flashing screens when windows loads. The screen will have a flash of pink with tearing. Loading many games jump in and out of full screen, still get black screens with displayport that must be a hardware design failing as its been there for so long.
Still have the clocks fluctuating at fullscreen, but only when you disable crossfire in profiles. If you leave crossfire at default the clocks stay at full when gaming.
Directx 9 games all have problems. They will stutter, hitch and sometimes have to be alt tab in and out to have them perform as they should.
I must admit I find each new Crimson driver makes my r9 295x2 more and more of a problem and displays new issues. With directx 12 hopefully coming into play more my I should not have to invest in a new card for a while the r9 295x2 should be more than capable of playing many future games at max.
I noticed the last issue in the new drivers notes is fluctuating clocks. To me if the driver still has these issues it should not be released at all. Fluctuating clocks is a pretty big issue not just some game glitch that can be ignored until it is fixed. A card should not have its clocks dropping for any reason when you are gaming. especially if you are having to disable crossfire you need the single card to be performing at its best to compensate for the other card not being used. As I have said before the clocks only fluctuate if crossfire is disabled for a game.
Using 15.7.1 the crashes in X Rebirth are gone but stutters and hitches like all other directx 9 games in windows 10 are there.
V-syncs never work properly in any of the drivers. The fps can fluctuate anywhere between 58 - 63 when on a 60hz monitor. Using v-sync in the ccc panel never works for any game.
This is all since windows 10 non of these issues were there in previous windows. My graphics card worked almost perfectly with all games in windows 7, 8 and 8.1. There has to be driver issues for the r9 295 x2 and windows 10. It may be to do with directx 9 and how windows 10 now uses memory which has changed for directx 9.
All of my drivers for my system are up to date including chipset and motherboard for windows 10 so there are no new drivers or bios upgrades I can do.
The fluctuating clocks are a separate issue to the directx 9 problems.
All the visual ++ files are installed.
I know my way around windows and my pc
That's exactly the same issue i had on all crimson drivers randomly in applications or just idling my gpu "loses" signal with monitor and fans go 100 %, idk really seems that AMD should revert to catalyst with better ui only, though i never had any critics about the old ui...
My advice go back to win 7 and gg...
