Nice AMD! You just got the worst company medal !
After all the "clock stuck" thing, now the "stupid installer that can't even install the stupid drivers", really nice guys ! Well done !
I'm tired of your amateurism.
Um, this is probably a troll post, but can you at least give us some info about your system, so that we might actually be able to help you get your driver installed.
No it's not a "troll post".
I Have a "Dual-X R9 270X", Windows 10 (64 Bits), Intel i5, 8GB ram, just a basic install...
The new update is broken, look how many people just on this forum have exactly the same message, about "components being already install", the installer get stuck at this point, no buttons at all, it's grotesque...
I try to uninstall the previous driver, hoping that can solve the problem, and it's not, the new driver installer always say the same nonsense message.
Even when all these people have troubles with their driver installation you will probably understand that it is simply not possible to test all probable configurations and get them to work in time, so most likely all these issues will be resolved soon enough as this is the point of having these types of forums that let's people post their driver/gpu problems to other people so that we can give other people a heads up on the issue and even get the chance to talk to people who works at AMD who can send the problem up to the driver programmers at AMD and fix the issue faster. Also the grass is not always greener on the other side
You must remember that those people who complain about issues with drivers is like not even 5% of all people whom have downloaded the drivers as all other people who are happy with the driver is just not posting so it looks like this driver is a huge problem, but when in reality it is just a few people ( in comparison to those who have zero problems at all).
I can count on one finger how many came to the forum to say "Great Job". There may be more though...
All I can say (for me) is the new software is meh.
I'm back to 11.5.
When people aren't having problems they almost never post in a forum like this--a trouble-shooting forum. However, the drivers are working fine, here...;)
That is what I meant by it, those people who has no problem just plays games or watches youtube (or any other activity) and does not post here being successful in their driver installation, that is like a person looking for healthy patients in a hospital.
Actually long Youtube clips (e.g. 30min+) can be a massive problem - driver resets galore (cf. here: Uninstall problems with 16.9.1 and 16.9.2 under Windows 10 64bit - R9 390 )
Games are a doddle by comparison ;-).
Ironically, 16.12.1 at least so far is behaving quite well. Watched some longer Youtube clips and no problem with driver resets - I hope it stays that way - however, AMD Settings keeps crashing if you have a look at the WattMan stuff - but I prefer it that way as long as the driver as such does what it is supposed to...
Try cleansing your system from any display driver remains with DDU (after telling DDU to reboot your system in safe mode) - I suggest that you do it for all three: Intel, Nvidia, and AMD. Then you should find that installing the AMD driver actually works.
Not a really good suggestion when AMD, who some people have praised here, specifically indicate NOT to use DDU to clean up 16.12.1 or for it as it's probably not 'aware' of the new stuff required in Relive package.
So yes, there are plenty of people out there who also have the problems of Memory clock stuck at 150mhz and other oddities from this drivers and just rolled back to 16.11.x and never said anything here either. I know until now I did. But was kind of expecting a hotfix by now. Some probably did not notice the RAM speed locking like that but hard to miss a 100fps drop in game, so they too rolled back.
In fact, 16.12.1 is one of the few drivers in a while, for me, that is totally a bust that I had to roll back and clean up. Using two different brand of R9-290 on 2 different system they exhibit the same behavior of memory locking at 150mhz at some point until you restart computer and it then relock at 150mhz.
Actually I did go back and edit the post I had made recommending users NOT to use DDU.
The developer has updated the utility and it now works fine with the Crimson ReLive drivers.
DDU has been updated to handle ReLive finally, but I am not having any problems with my HD 7870
Had no memory clock stuck, or lost 100fps in any game.
Perhaps you should provide more details on your issue ?
I had to roll the driver back to because of odd 9-10fps stuck in all my games, some even lower. Tried several things but ended up with latest crimson edition. System a R9 290 on win 10 64bit platform i5 Skylake 6400, 16GB 2667MHz DDR4 and two EVO 850 500GB.
Hey, thanks for your suggestion about "DDU", but no thanks, first of all, I don't know anything about this program, so next time try to explain a little more about it, and do you really think it's a normal procedure to make people install some program, wrote by some guys on a review website, a program that tell you to have your "real password" because he need to restart your freaking computer in safe mode and the Windows PIN code is not working on safe mode, seriously ??
I don't have time for this crap, and it's not my job.
And by experience, the use of programs like this just tell me I'm going for troubles bigger than they are already, tweaking things in safe mode etc, just no.
Don't know if this still applies to installing the new amd software, but it's what I followed(never had an install fail).
This was required for the old update from CCC to Crimson last year.
Anyway. I have gone back to 15.11 (report your issues).
You are free to use the AMD Clean Uninstall Utility available here : AMD Clean Uninstall Utility
Definitely try DDU !!! ;-) - I also was sceptical but apparently it really is the only option for doing a really clean uninstall (no, AMD's own software uninstaller is a worse alternative)! Uninstall the driver debris then run DDU (and tell it to reboot your system in safe mode). After rebooting in safe mode cleanse your system from any AMD driver remains (clean and reboot) - in case you used to have an Nvidia card before, it also would be very advisable to cleanse any Nvidia and Intel display driver stuff as well (in this case without reboot - afterwards cleanse any AMD driver remains and this time with reboot). Afterwards you can install the driver version of choice.
Just to make one thing clear again - DDU really is the only option if you really want a clean uninstall of AMD's graphics drivers. Their own utility apparently does not do the job properly.
Well, here I decided to go back to the previous driver, because you can not play without the second gpu fan working properly. But when using the AMD install manager to remove Relive, the uninstall hangs and does not complete, needing to reboot the pc and then use AMD cleanup uninstall or the DDU to uninstall the
