R9 280 Driver Problem with Windows 10

My system consists of the following components FX8350, M5A97 Evo R2.0, Crucial ballistix 8GB Ram, Powercolor R9 280 3GB, CX750M PSU, 240GB Sandisk SSD.

I am previously using Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, i can run AA games 50-70fps max settings @1080p. Last week i give the free upgrade to windows 10 a try since i am looking forward to DX12.

Everything was fine until i start to play game, BF4 become 30fps max, Far Cry 4 25fps Max. I am using fraps to check my game FPS.


I clean uninstall, then reinstall Graphics driver to the latest Crimson 16.6.1 for Win10 64Bit, even updated motherboard driver but to no avail, none of these solve my issue. I am about to rollback to Windows 8.1 but for last try, i decided to check Radeon App, in the overdrive, i found that my clock and memory was set to lowest. I change it to preferred speed but didnt change the game performance.


I downloaded MSI Afterburner and tweak the settings from there, save profile and set to apply the speed everytime i restart, and all FPS goes back to normal.

This is not the fix that i am looking for, i know this is temporary. This is the reason why i decided to post in this forum to get a permanent solution. It personally think that this is driver compatibility issue with Windows 10. Why do i need other software to make things work?


Thank you in advance for those who will respond to my post.
