Edit: I tried downloading the 17.2.1 recommended update manually after AMD Settings failed to recognise the hardware after an automatic install.
Edit: I'm now assuming that the slow download might be due to issues with the update.
I've stuck with AMD for years.
But recently, I had the privilege to get a full 100Mbps fibre connection.
I get 96Mbps actual connection speed with peak download of around 12 MB/s
It's bad enough that the AMD driver package has blown out to nearly 500MB but, why is it drip feeding so slowly?
Windows 10 64bit
XFX R9 295x2
- Rebooting my router
- Isolating the ethernet connection from the modem
- Checking my firewall and antivirus settings
- Rebooting windows
And I cannot get over 110KB/s average speed.
It's like a 2 hour download...??
I put up with that for decades on a 500KB/s ADSL2 connection, and just had to wear it.
But why, with a 100Mbps fiber/ethernet wired connection, am I getting such a horrendous drip feed of drivers?
