I have this model of graphic card "R9290-DC2OC-4GD5", its a model from ASUS and AMD but I can't find the appropriate drivers for it. The ones in the CD that came with the package are outdated and can't be updated directly. And the ones I find in AMD site aren't compatible.

 

With the original drivers from the CD/Asus I don't get BSOD or crashes/freezes during games, but the performance is low and some game won't even open because the drivers are outdated.

With the most recent drivers from AMD site I can start the games and get good fps's but I get BSOD and freezes all the time.

 

It seems like the ones AMD delivers are not compatible with cards made in partnership with ASUS while the original ones have not been updated since 2015.
