Same issues here and 2nd GPU is not active at all.
AMD 9590 BE + Corsair H105 CPU cooler
Asus Sabretooth Rev 2.0
16GB DDR3 2133MHz
Sapphire 8GB VaporX R9 290X x 2
256GB Samsung 850 Pro + 3TB HDD storage
AMD Crimson 16.7.3 and Hotfix 16.8.2
Both GPU logos are lit one changes to yellow 2nd never changes from blue and I get 34.8 fps max and 3.8 fps min with crossfire disabled but only 32.6 max and 1.2 min with the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (DXMD.exe DirectX) crossfire profile enabled.
Tried all crossfire profile options available and no change.
For an AMD Gaming Evolved release someone SERIOUSLY dropped the ball on this and I'm gonna be after compensation (from Square) for having to wait YET AGAIN for support for mature tech to be in games on LAUNCH DAY for once instead of days, weeks or MONTHS later.......
Why are AMD endorsing this denial of access to their highest paying customers I have no idea... They should be INSISTING that AMD Evolved Evolved titles have full support at launch. Or at least SPECIFY whether Crossfire and multi monitor/VR support will be enabled at lauch or not.
I paid £3500 for my PC and can't play yet! £250 paying console players are able to.... WHY AMD?????
So could I get anyone from AMD to provide me some feedback with this issue? I'm trying to be patient but the game has already been out for a week and I have not seen any driver released specifically for DX MD. Just a simple "Hey we have a driver update in the works which will be released soon" would be acceptable to me. Better yet, an actual fix.
There will be a new driver released for that title soon(tm)
Thanks for your response. I was glad to see the 16.8.3 Driver released. I uninstalled my old driver with DDU and then installed the 16.8.3 driver. I played DX MD and it still stutters and the game pauses frequently...maybe every 3 seconds. When it does pause I see the activity lights on my two Fury X cards go to one red led. My game settings are on high, contact hardening off, motion blur off, temporal AA off, MSAA off, and bloom is set to off. I first ran the game with MSI afterburner and it didn't pause during the game play but it did still stutter. MSI Afterburner did show erratic GPU 1 and 2 Usage. The core clock for gpu 1 stayed mostly steady at 1050 but gpu 2 was very erratic and not staying consistent enough on any specific mhz. In My crimson settings are power efficiency set to off, FRTC at 140 since my monitor has 144hz, frame pacing on....I have also tried the default crossfire profile and the amd recommended profile for DX MD. Any feedback or recommendations for me?
I didn't say it would be the 16.8.3 drivers which had this fix, just that there is a fix coming. We aren't allowed to say which drivers have the changes just in case the fix doesn't make it into them.
New AMD CrossFire profile added for DirectX® 11:
- Deus Ex™: Mankind Divided
- Battlefield™ 1 Beta
I think this drivers had the solution.
unless Nixes release a new fix today or tommorrow. I hope.
So you're saying you would add a new crossfire profile into a driver release, knowing that there is still a separate issue present that causes severe stuttering in X-fire that would prevent the profile from being usable? How does that make any sense?
The 16.8.3 crossfire profile is confirmed as a complete stutter-fest...
Any news on the new driver release to fix the stuttering then?
en9dmp and srs13rastus both have good input for you all at AMD. It would be great for a little more feed back besides "we can't say when, just that there is a hail marry that might address the crossfire stuttering issue". I will say that I visited the overclockers UK website and someone else posted that we should force enable shader caching for DX MD .... so I did and it seems to have improved a lot. Not perfect but very playable now. Also stating before a game is released that a game will have crossfire enabled at launch or not would be nice.
