Constant Driver Problems is unacceptable

You know what? I am incredibly fed up with your lack of ingenuity AMD.

I have invested a lot of money into your hardware but always seem to be left short changed and plagued with conflictions and driver malfunctions.

What should be an enjoyable experience turns out to be a mammoth pain in the back side.. and it is all down to your hardware and software..

I paid good money for you "flag ship" 7990 dual gpu card, around £700 - £1000 and guess what ZERO support..most games didn't know what the hell it was and jesus, it took nearly 8 months after release to get the drivers right for it, by that time I had sold the damn card to some one who wanted to bit mine!

 

I later made the mistake of purchasing the R9 295x2 at no small price and although by then you had just about managed to get your drivers working to at least play battlefield without a hick up, everytime you updated crimson it threw something else out.

 

right now if I want to play The Division with out developing epilepsy I have to downgrade my crimson software to 15.11, which and this is laughably reduces fluidity on battlefield 4..

 

I am sick and tire of your inconsistencies, you never get it right and my experience of gaming on the PC is not a happy one and I have to put this down to AMD hardware and software.

 

My question is this... Are AMD ever going to get their act together and if not sometime soon, is it not a good idea to go to a product that doesn't seem to have as much issues, IE NVIDIA,

I am sure I am not the only person out there that thinks your sucking right now....and have been for a long time.

 

When is there going to be a driver that deals with all games without a hitch...to be honest PS4 gives better gaming experience due to the fact that they use NVIDIA now doubt.

 

if there is no definitive on a driver release that looks after the hardware that gamers like myself are prepared to spend £1500 a go on then let me know. I can sell this garbage and move on,

because it looks like the best thing anyone can do is switch to NVDIA at the moment because AMD seem to have their heads in the sand.
