      Experiment 1

      20180518_000128.avi - http://ge.tt/7k4l1qp2

      Good performance.

       

      Experiment 2

      20180518_014357.avi - http://ge.tt/7gEc3qp2

      Low performance. Slide show.

       

      Resume:

      Old HD4670 (2009 release) in the 2D mode has 10 times higher performance than the R7 360 (2016 release).

      It's buulshit!!!

       

      Please, correct RADEON driver 2D performance on the classic Windows 7 theme.
