Been testing many games with the new drivers and nothing works as it should im afraid.
Crossfire is still not disabling properly or fully for any game. The gpu disabled still gets usage happening though not the same as when its enabled but does still get usage, and the 1st card fluctuates up and down from 0 to 100.
When crossfire is disabled the card core clocks downclock and fluctuate constantly. The sometimes are down at 2d levels. Clock blocker keeps them at full.
Using windowed mode causes the core clocks to downclock.
Using Boarderless windowed mode causes the clocks to downclock
Every game has minor stutters and hitches which werent there before. most dx 10 and 11 used to be perfectly smooth. The catalyst drivers still are the smoothest and don't have the same hiitches like the Crimson drivers do.
DX 9 games do not work properly, all stutter and hitch and become unplayable.
The r9 295x2 on Windows 10 is a disaster.
Is this to do with how the r9 295x2 has auto power settings and not the power effeciency settings that other cards do?
Is it the fact that the card is two cards in one and the drivers are causing crossfire to be broken and not enabling or disabling fully.
Something driver based is screwing with this card big time, I have tried every driver since windows 10 came out. Nothing works properly.
Windows 7 and 8, the card ran amazingly well, even crossfire was great in many titles.
Even using Vulkan in the Talos Principle has hitches and stutters just the same even though the fps is very high. The drivers are just not keeping the card stable even altering power settings and ulps has no effect.
