[CHW] Mantle in BF4 up to 45% more performance - Page 36  

post #351 of 365

Hopefully you can see this. Still no mention of DX9 but 4k and eyefinity. So you can stop your whining.

Point being, there are a TON of instances where the AMD drivers are just flat out busted and they are neglecting to fix them. Instead, they are focusing on Mantle, even though right now, no game supports it, and ALL games support DirectX.

Battlefield? I played Battlefield3 in crossfire and I had no issues. Which Battlefield are you talking about? we have members that play BF4 in crossfire and have no issues.

Anything 306.97 works well for me. Just that for many 306.97 is known as the official last good driver for BF3. I do play some DayZ and Deus Ex and get lower FPS. If I decide to give BF3 a two day break, I just uninstall 306.97 and install 314.07. I have probably installed and reinstalled at least 20 times this week alone lol.

Have you tried using a RECENT driver ... like 331.82? I don't see in your list of things where you have.

Further, it sounds like you are having an issue with certain drivers getting better FPS than others for certain games. That is totally different than "Just not working at ALL" like people have with Crossfire in ANY DirectX version in Windowed Mode. Then there is the whole stuttering issue that doesn't work, and screws up performance, even in Fullscreen Mode with multiple monitors or very high resolution single monitors.

But at least you have a solution to get your games to WORK at maximum FPS. It doesn't matter HOW FAR BACK a driver you go with AMD, THEY ALL have the same issue ... ie there ISN'T A FIX ... even if it is inconvenient.

That is completely untrue. Please educate yourself on things you don't own if you wish to comment on them accurately without spreading misinformation/ lies. Thank you.

You say fix but as far as I have seen AMD never claimed that CF worked in windowed mode. So what are they to fix exactly. Implement a driver maybe so it can work but since they have not claimed CF works in windowed, your claim of fix is invalid.

Very interesting indeed. We know when we should see Mantle for BF4 then. biggrin.gif

that was a NVidia owner who found it funny doing it.

you are so worried about issues in the amd side when there are issues in the NVidia side that are just as bad.

do you even play games?

Ok, that's a fair point if you want to look at it that way.

So you could argue that AMD doesn't need to "fix" it because it isn't broke. That just means that nVidia's SLi system is technologically superior to AMD's Crossfire system in that respect.

Yes, in fact, I am playing Rift as we speak. I have it up in Windowed Mode on my main monitor and I'm typing here on my second monitor.

Why do you keep saying this? Window mode is something crossfire has openly never supported. It is not broken. Why do you want/need to play in window mode anyways?
