I'm waiting for your answer.
Will there be fixes in the new version of the driver?
Windows 7 does not support 2D fully, is an obsolete system and is no longer supported by Microsoft. For your task, it is more expedient to use Windows XP in conjunction with the latest official drivers for your hardware, which you can get from the link:
That's right, on Windows XP in 2D mode is much faster.
I need the same performance for Windows 7.
Discrete graphics cards NVIDIA and integrated INTEL - work great in 2D mode also in Windows 7.
Unfortunately, the problem low 2D performance is present in AMD cards only.
Please correct the performance in 2D mode in the newer versions your drivers.
Most of the software is no longer supported in Windows XP. In this regard, you need to add support for 2D-acceleration in the driver OS Windows 7. Your competitor (Nvidia) does not have problems in 2D on Windows 7.
You can contact the reseller or under the warranty obligation to return the card you bought earlier from AMD to the back. Buy, or exchange, for a similar product from NVIDIA, which does not have similar problems in 2D, or do not use Windows 7.
Сorrecting errors in the driver for the system 10 years ago, developers (AMD) do not plan.
Since the AMD drivers do not implement basic 2D functions,
then remark on the official website that Windows 7 is not supported by your graphic cards.
Your information is not correct, Windows 7 is still supported by both Microsoft and AMD. The level of 2D support has never changed (yes some antiquated API's were discontinued in Vista & 7) as it is supported as well as Aero. While whether or not XP would be better at a certain function, really doesn't much matter as it is unsupported by all parties, and the cons for using it at this point would far outweigh any pro. Only someone with a very proprietary, dedicated functional need to do so, should use XP and I pray that they don't connect to the internet. It absolutely may be that some other company supports a need function better than AMD, not going to challenge that one bit, just wanted to point out the what is actually supported information was wrong.
OS: Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate
Graphic card: ASUS Radeon R7 360 2G (2016 release)
Driver: Catalyst v15.7.1 .. Crimson v18.4.1 (any version)
Downloads (2DTest32.exe + source code)
"Windows AERO Theme" - 5..8 msec - good performance
"Windows Basic Theme" or "Windows Classic Theme" - 130..170 msec - bad performance. Very low performance!

Please, fix this bug in Radeon driver!!!
P.S.: In addition, on the old graphic card HD4670 (2009 release) with Catalyst v13.9 there is no problem.

I really do understand what you are asking and that it is frustrating. Just want to make sure you understand. You are not telling any of what you have said here to AMD personnel. We in this forum are users (PEERS) just like you not AMD employees. I doubt they will be doing anything to fix your issue ever as Windows 7 is unfortunately nearing it's end of life. The number of people that would have issue with what your issue is, is so small that I doubt they would allocate any resources to change anything. They have so many issues they are trying to fix for new hardware on current operating systems I just can't see it happening. This is my opinion only, as I don't speak for AMD, and absolutely wish you the best of luck. If you need to speak to AMD follow this link and open a support ticket please: Email Form
Sure was a great video! Good Luck!
In the classic theme Windows 7, 2D acceleration there are no problems:
- with any discrete Nvidia graphics card
- with any integrated Intel graphics
- with old AMD cards, for example HD4670 + Catalyst v 13.9
Low 2D performance is available on new AMD video cards only.
For example, the old HD4670 (2008 release) in the 2D mode has 10 times higher performance than the R7 360 (2016 release).
I never disputed there was an issue or that another companies solution was good. I only stated I doubt AMD will do anything about it ( but hope they do for you) as it is something so few would have issue with anyway, again not saying you shouldn't expect something better. I sure as heck think their stuff should work the way it is supposed to out of the box. The reality of things in the real world is that it's a "Wish in one hand an blank in the other scenario". The shear number off issues they have going on, in drivers right now would have to put this issue at about rock bottom on the priority list. Good luck though.
