I dont think so, the problem is not even in the Known issues....UNREAL.
I don't imagine they want publicise that 3 or more models of cards are completely busted stability wise with Crimson drivers.
Nothing else would quite say "avoid these cards like the bubonic plague" than a damning inclusion on the known issues section.
I can remember buying an early model Sparkle Ge 4600 Ti which would overheat and artifact/glitch. Fixed with a design revision i.e. beefy heatsink and phone call off their head technical chap.
I thought the problem would've gotten top priority to be honest.
I still don't know the root cause but it's been there since Crimson 15.11.1
I do know that it works fine with Catalyst.
The card just gets shut off abruptly when all indicators appear normal.
Mine's a Sapphire R9 285 with a dual bios but I've seen complaints from ASUS, XFX, etc too.
An issue with older motherboards?
Partners straying too far from reference designs?
A schoolboy error in the new drivers?
A flawed card?
If the RX 480 should come out and put our slightly older cards on life support I won't be a happy camper.
380 is very good card, but with that problem....damn....!!
i heard alot of people complaining with R9 280x and R9 390x crimson drivers. Most of them downgraded to earlier CCC Software. i think there is away to use crimson software but older catalyse drivers.
Either way the issue must be addressed by AMD, i am starting to get the impression AMD wants all of us to move to the green team, so they can close shop and focus on console market.
Have you even tried 16.6.1 drivers?
i installed it yesterday , and got a slight improvement while running Unigen. Everytime a new driver comes out i run Valley benchmark and note down my scores.
