    system and compressed memory


      Hello, since latest driver update i experience the following problem.

      While scrolling through Facebook the loading of the videos cause my pc to freeze. "System and compressed memory" process is taking about 30% of my CPU.

      If I continue to scroll, the problem gets worse.

      I am aware about a temporary fix to this problem - disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome.

      I must point out that the issue does not appear in Microsoft Edge.

      I am using Windows 10 64b, driver version 16.7.3 for my 7970, and Google Chrome.

      I already performed a clean install of the driver, also using the AMD Cleanup Utility.

      Any suggestions ?

      Thank you for your time

          Does this issue occur on older drivers?


          I am using Chrome and i have noticed some temporary lockups of my whole system for up to 5 seconds when using Chrome with hardware acceleration enabled. However this has only occurred since i started using the Windows 10 Anniversary edition.
