A few friends of mine are experiencing Artifacts with there 7950/7970 cards with 12.8. they never had this problem with 12.6 I am not sure whats going on but it seems that 12.8 is causing artifacts or black screens. Looking all over the net I am seeing there are alot of users who switched to 12.8 and are now getting artifacts, driver crashes and black screens. 

 

What is with AMDs drivers honestly. AMD needs to get there act together and put some decent drivers out

We have an AMD Driver representative here on the forum, and he is making note of all problems that he see's here on our forums in regards to the issues people are having.

It also helps when we, as enthusiasts, report the problems to AMD as well. www.amd.com/report I believe is the website, Thracks knows for sure though thumb.gif

Yes it does. Thracks said that he goes through every single report and tries to get to the bottom of them all as well. The guys that work on the drivers are just gamers like the rest of us.

I also have a feeling that a lot of the so called "driver problems" are usually user error long before its an actual driver problem. Crossfire users, yeah they get odd bugs...so some of those problems I can see being legit. But I have personally NEVER had a problem with any AMD drivers to date (note, I have not used 12.8 as of yet just been too lazy).

12.8 is pretty solid for me, but I'm just a single 7950 user smile.gif

I rang PCCG about 45 minutes ago to see what was going on.. The guy said that they hadn't got them in and probably won't tonight, he asked me how I paid and when and he was like "oh, we ran out of stock on Saturday".. Then he was like "well seeing as you got the email you were just lucky"

I checked back just then to see..


Yay! biggrin.gif

I feel the same way and I've been using almost every AMD driver since August 2009. Even Crossfire had no issues for me. But everyone has different usages and it's possible that there is actually something wrong with their cards. *shrug*

BTW, I went from a Sapphire 4890 Toxic > 2x MSI 5770 Hawks > 2x Gigabyte 5870s > MSI 7950 OC.

I actually experienced the black screen + 100% fan speed with 12.8 drivers. But mine was worse. I went out with friends, 5 hours later when I came back, black screen and fan was running 100%, was very loud. I reverted back to 12.x - july 19 drivers right away. Sometimes I go out on a 2 day short trip, If that happened then, my card would have been smoking when I got home.
