SB indeed nothing... 'cause otherwise Windows NEVER would boot biggrin.gif has its own default drivers, really i don't know what that app does.... never used the usual uninstall from AMD, always Driver Fusion or DDU

Yes I know that. And it's funny how it uninstalls USB drivers yet doesn't use Windows drivers so no USb devices work... Luckily my keyboard is old school PS2 so I have to use Tab + alt Tab+ arrow keys+ enter key to install the 14.3 drivers to get USB devices working again.

I even used the amdcleanuputility a 2nd time today still no USB drivers whatsoever. Still memory leak in BF4... I give up, defeat accepted.

Well I used that tool in Win7 x64 and that 'uninstalls' the drivers for all AMD - but pretty I had no issues, with 'devices' once back in windows without the drivers. Surely it's the same as a fresh windows install, or is this a 8.1 issue?

Can you guys recommend if I should do a driver reinstall?

I just switched to 14.3 and from 14.2, and on 14.2 BF4 mantle was very smooth, even at 4k maxed settings. On 14.3 there's noticeably more stuttering especially when shooting and in Thief, the game with the option "Use Mantle" checked will not even fire up. The screen goes black for about half a second the same way it would on DX11 but then it goes back to desktop and that's it. Also in BF4 it seems like every other time I start up my computer and try to play with Mantle, I'm getting an error along the lines of mantle mgpu error unknown gpu (AMD Radeon R9 200 series) or something along those lines. I feel like I should just go back to 14.2 since I can wait to play Thief and BF4 on that driver was the best at least for me.

try reinstall over the top with 14.3. Don't uninstall. See if that works. Some,early on,had to reinstall 4 times to get it to take.

if you are on Intel then it may add to my theory that these drivers on install are a bit more problematic than on AMD based systems.

The issue with the AMD catalyst beta Mantle drivers and Intels is it causes conflictions with the Intel IGPU on the Intel CPU's disable the IGPU and usually the issue is gone other than that something causes issues with the Mantle beta drivers sometimes corrupting some of the Mantle / DX files when you install one driver over the other driver version or vise versa.

The best option is remove the AMD catalyst software / driver and the AMD radeon device itself via device manager all together in safe mode and use a driver wiper like DDU then reboot back to safe mode with the driver / catalyst suite you want to install on a USB thumb drive the reason to use safe mode is so internet network connection is off otherwise windows will automatically try to find driver online if necessary and install it without your ok to do so which can cause a issue of not doing a clean driver install again corrupting the before said files.

Testing this out right now.

Edit: Still shoots past my card's 2GB. The VRAM usage even increases during map loading.

MANTLE
-Mantle now requires Catalyst 14.2 or later drivers.
-Fixed multiple crashes.
-Fixed memory leak when switching between windowed and full screen.
-Optimized memory management which can reduce amount of performance stalls when video memory is overcommitted.
-Improved performance when vsync is used.
-Fixed bug with offset mouse cursor when using full screen and horizontal windows taskbar.
-Multi-GPU: Added initial support for frame pacing for smoother frame rate in full screen mode, enabled by default. Can be disabled in console / User.cfg with “RenderDevice.FramePacingMethod 0”.
-Multi-GPU: Fixed black screen when starting on machine with multiple GPUs where the weakest GPU has the display attached to it.
-Multi-GPU: Fixed intermittent crash when switching between windowed and full screen mode when having multiple GPUs

I didn't think the 7000 series was supported yet.
