Mine has a huge cluster of dead pixels dead center in the screen and the entire right side light-bleeds so badly along the edge that I can see it on white backgrounds let alone black.
Now I get to decide if I want to drive all the way back with it or send it to AOC to get replaced instead.
Ack, sorry to hear this. Would be nice to be able to try out a monitor in store at places like MC or Fry's Electronics.

I'm sorry but I do not have stuttering using Crimson but I also don't have dFallout 4 or COD BlackOps 3. Only games I'm actively playing is StarWars BF, CSGO, FarCry4 and a little SOM. My next game is most likely Metal Gear Solid: Phantom.
I only tried CCC 15.7.1 for a SOM benchmark and did not game on it to compare actual gaming. I came back to AMD on Crimson release. I thought Crimson 16.1 was an improvement from Crimson 15.2 when I saw FPS go up in SOM. Only I learned it wasn't improvements but was more of a fix to bring back performance levels of CCC 15.7.1.Shadows of Mordor

I'd suggest Crimson 16.1 based on improvements from Crimson 15.2 and if one encounters driver issues Crimson 16.1, best bet is to just roll back to CCC 15.7.1 until next release.
