    AMD 18.5.2 and 18.8.2 artefacts?! R9 380


      Hello guys,

      I got artefacts in games on R9 380 after new updates (18.5.2. and 18.8.2.). I cleanup everying with DDU (following every step) and still doing this thing. With 17.1.1 is working fine. It might be a corrupt driver for my graphic card? BTW graphic card temps are fine! (if your gonna ask me this)


      FX 8300

      MSI R9 380 4G

      Corsair VS650

      Gigabyte 970 Gaming

          This is the latest AMD Driver for R9 380 GPU card: AMD Radeon™ R9 380 Drivers & Support | AMD . (version 18.8.2)


          Follow this basic installation procedure to make sure you are installing it cleanly:

          install AMD driver:


          1) Download the correct AMD Full Set of drivers from AMD Support. Make sure your Windows is fully updated via Windows Update. Windows Must be fully updated because the latest AMD Drivers requires all the latest "Optional" and "Recommended" updates to be installed.


          2) Use Windows Uninstall to uninstall current AMD driver and software and disconnect the internet from your computer. Then use DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) from Wagnardsoft  Forum in Safe Mode. This will eliminate all traces of the AMD driver and software from your computer.


          Delete C: \ AMD folder from the Root Directory. Reboot


          3) Go to Device Manager and click "Display Adapter" and make sure you are on the MS Basic Display Adapter. If not, uninstall the AMD driver using Properties.


          4) Try reinstalling the AMD FULL SET OF DRIVERS that you have downloaded manually. Make sure you disable the Internet to prevent Windows from installing a newer version. So configure windows to prevent it from updating drivers via windows update. So it has been mentioned to disable any anti-virus programs before installing AMD Drivers.


          5) If the new AMD drivers installs and works correctly, delete again the C: \ AMD folder from the root directory. To save space on the HDD.


          6) Enable both the Internet and Anti-Virus program (if applicable).


          7) Go back to Device Manager and check your GPU card driver is working and identified correctly.
