The most common suggestions are to:
> Raise the Power Limit to +20
> TDR trick (which you've tried)
> Disable Crimson Power Saving
I didn't find the first two suggestions helped personally - couldn't try the third - instead I...
...reverted back to Catalyst 15.11.1
The Crimson drivers since their introduction appear to cause black screen crashes in a variety of game titles with 285/380(X)/Fury cards & possibly other models, at least under Win8.1 & Win10:
If the driver doesn't recover a hard reset is the only way to restore the display ='(
It's especially irritating as it can occur on any game title, at any given moment even when all card indicators (temperature, usage, clock rate, etc) are quite normal.
At this point I believe either:
> That there's something wrong with the Crimson drivers (as the cards work normally with Catalyst) OR
> The GCN 1.2 cards are inherently flawed *in some way* by design. The R9 285 was the only card to suffer from the Witcher 3 combat crashes & GTA 5 cutscene ghosting. A R9 380 is essentially a re-badged R9 285.
I wrote about this problem back in December '15:
I believe the issue is still being investigated - you're not alone:
I haven't tried the most recent Crimson 16.4.1 driver myself - I don't have much confidence in those - I can't use Catalyst forever though!
This is a great post, thank you. AMD should be working on this, but they're not.
I'm glad to see that this is still an issue for people other than myself.
Great post! This problem accurs on different cards and different systems and it persist already for half-year, i believe. This must be solved but i dont see much work going on. =( i using drivers version 15.301.1201.0 from 23.12.2015.
Yeah from doing a bit research it's not looking good. From my take it seems there must be a problem with GCN 1.2. and any Hawaii related card. I do notice the "white dots" that people complain about. Hopefully AMD gets the drivers right to solve this. The only game that crashes on me so far right now is Verdun but that might be the game itself? I did another clean install and it seemed to fix Hitman crashing. Pretty awesome game now that it works. shakree28 Try doing another clean install of driver. Also look for amd clean install software on AMD's website: AMD Clean Uninstall Utility.
its your Graphic card driver problem
Obviously its the graphics card drivers... it's still a problem no less....
The card I bought was over clocked out of the box, I have found that
'underclocking' it a bit has stabilized my issues.
I had same problem - crimson always caused TDR and had to use 15.7 Catalyst to play games without black screen error - but I managed to fix it. My cpu is Intel i5 3470 and if I turn off intel turbo boost inside UEFI -> no TDR.
So I suggest if your card is works with older catalyst and you only have problems with crimson, try this out.

Ah, crap. Today Dark Souls 3 crashed (black screen). So turned off turbo boost only saved me some more time, but overall it's not a solution..
I am also having this issue. I too have a r9 380 4g msi and two games so far I noticed crash for me, Verdun and Hitman WOA. Verdun crashes in game (started happening when Verdun had that big update and one of the more current Crimson driver updates) and I can't get past the tutorial in hitman without crashing in dx 11 or dx 12. I can post my output_log. Interesting stuff on the GCN 1.2.
