[MEGA/Uploaded] AMD Catalyst 14.4 - Press Driver - Page 8

post #71 of 187
I am getting around 70-120 FPS on Mantle BF4 with a single 290X @ 1160Mhz core and 1500Mhz VRAM. This is on Ultra settings with AA turned off at 2880x1620 (150% reso scale of 1080p). Very very impressive.

Game also feels really responsive where on these settings on DX11 FPS would dip into the 40's now and then and the game, regardless of FPS, would feel unresponsive and sluggish.

Hitreg also appears to be miles better with Mantle strangely enough.

Really though, we all know AMD is absolutely atrocious at making drivers so none of this should be a surprise.

I feel bad for the guy here that decided to go for quad fire. What were you thinking? I love AMD, but if I wanted a multi-gpu solution I would not even consider AMD.

AMD is amazing for single cards and nVidia, because of their superior drivers, is the king of multiple card solutions.

I love how AMD said they would be able to deliver more and better drivers to us through having a beta process and not committing to a monthly release schedule. This has resulted in months at a time with no official release of a bug free driver. Again, I love AMD although their driver team needs to be fired or at least the project manager of the driver team. Just the worst support, the worst coding, the slowest release times and major bugs go unfixed for months.

Doesn't mean that it works properly for everyone. 14.1, 14.2 and 14.3 makes BF4 on Mantle run WORSE than it should. Which is why I really want to know for sure that 14.4 solves that.

In order to get mantle to really work well for a GCN 1.0 GPU you need a few things in your favor. A powerful GPU (7950 or 7970), a mid range CPU, and all low settings in game.

You need to force the bottleneck off the GPU and onto the CPU. Once you do that then mantle will truly fly.

I was able to get 120fps constant on my 7970 by using low settings with Textures, and mesh quality on ultra.

In BF4 i now get a solid fps with vsync on with mantle on. No more occasional dips =D

You keep telling yourself that, My quadfire setup works just fine with this.

with your sig. like you said, does not work for everyone. 14.3 works for my 290 with mantle just fine. i can even put my i7 to stock and HT off.

I retract my previous post, it was 85 FPS with a mix of Med/High @ 1440P. Sadly I am back to the 14.3s due to constant system hangs.

I'm not sure why you'd want this driver with all the risks included of it being pre-Beta. Heck, if you can't wait a few more weeks, take a vacation biggrin.gif

keep in mind though, that this months driver (which may or not be these drivers) is supposed to be a WHQL driver, NOT a beta driver.
