Some people have reported a memory issue.Yes i have experienced it as well with this driver.However this is also a different topic but yeah this driver could use some touch ups.In Fallout 4,i have had experiences of lighting on particle effects causing crashes.Like standing too close to a flame or fire causing a system shut down.I know this may be related to mods.But i cant think how.But i also noticed a performance drop when near them.An i do not mean a minor drop.I mean major drop in performance.


     During the benchmark fps in 3DMark06 i saw Fps drop from 119fps ( note 144Hz monitor using HDMI leaving 120Hz performance) to 42fps.The same thing i found happening in Fallout 4.I thought maybe this could be related.Maybe the driver has issues with lighting.So after running this test i figure id let you guys know an see if this and the memory issue can be addressed.


Also some odd things.Profiles still remaining after programs have been removed.Like games you played an uninstalled.Issues where audio would go low an would not go back up.Using DTS this became an issue when i could not get the volume back up.So i had to uninstall the driver an reinstall it.Issues with temperatures going up to 60 using this card.Just on start up.Then temps dropping down to the lower teens again.Don't know whats going on there.


        Other issues with setting FPS lock.Now this one is very problematic.OK I have fallout 4 and 3DMark06.I set the Global settings all settings are affected.But when i do an individual setting the settings will not respond.A little help on getting that to work properly would be appreciated.Now like i said this is odd.Because i set the FPS limit on 3DMark to 62.3DMark runs at 62fps no problem.But fallout 4 is running at 1556fps.


With vsync off.OK. Clearly there is something wrong.Other programs are working correctly but Fallout 4 is the exception.No setting in the Gaming section seems to work for Fallout 4.So i requested this before an im requesting this again.Some more support for optimization for Fallout 4. Even if you have to make a mod that we can download.Or a tutorial.Or better yet an program you can create to optimize functions for Fallout 4.


     I would like to point out that base game performance like with Vsync [Fallout4Prefs.ini] [Display] iPresentInterval=1

You can find the game locks at 39fps on a R9 390 regardless of settings.Which tells me Nvidia optimized it to not run on AMD which could be why when its iPresentInterval=0 the game crashes. If i can get some optimization here so i can set it to iPresentInterval=0 an still run the game without crashes.That would be very appreciative. (not in money) but you know thankful.
