Seriously though AMD really, really needs to get their launch drivers in order. First impressions count and are long lasting. Thankfully RTG under Raja Koduri seems to be heading in the right direction.

to be more specific i meant the first 6 months of GCN:
2012 AMD Video Card Driver Performance Review (in the conclusion)
Quote:
Towards the middle of 2012, AMD stopped releasing WHQL drivers every month. We were getting new Beta drivers for each big game launch. AMD followed this up by doing another series of price reductions on all Radeon HD 7000 series video cards. AMD spent a lot of time launching the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition video cards while providing good driver support for the new hardware. This is where AMD turned the year around. The drivers started giving the HD 7000 series hardware more performance. The Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition was performing with, or better than a GeForce GTX 680. In the Fall 2012, AMD had a new or updated Beta driver with support for each popular game being released. The drivers at the end of the year were consistently improving with performance updates and new game support. AMD did not slack off for the rest of the year. Hopefully AMD will continue this hard work and have a strong 2013 from start to finish.

i mean look at the 7950 (which got the most increase)

on a side note - this is why i laugh at these kepler getting gimped theorists when they compare GCN cards to kepler. they can apply the same logic here and conclude kepler was getting gimped when GK104 was still the flagship GPU!

this was right after i was looking hard at HIS 7950 Ice-Q turbo that were ~$230 on newegg. but life happened and i had to sit on my 570 for another year. mad.gif


wow i'm really sorry to go this far off topic. redface.gif

mister you have to understand how gpu architecture work. Kepler was a different gpu from fermi it had a lot weaknesses (less performance per "core") due to the green program but it had advantages as well, some games perform better others worse depending how they were made(the last tomb raider is a good example or games that require cpu power like BF).
the 7xxxx family had poor performance and bad support back then, it could still compete with nvidia because they still had the fermi, also the lack of crossfire support and crazy amount of stuttering that took more than a year to fix improve.
after that driver update they fixed so many issues that made them look "good", if you look at benchs they had to release another card (overclocked) to compete with nvidia again.
for me tahiti was an excellent overclockr and that was it

im not attacking\defending anyone just being realistic
nvidia probably sneak there somewhere in these last years but there s no proof.

anyway
i hope amd brings something new to the table with this program coz they need it

the entire GPU division is basically ruin by the software driver team. Had the GCN driver are decent at 7970 launch day, it would have destroy all the Nvidia GK104 GPU from the start.

their driver's feature is a hit or miss, there is never a smooth launch. It is always broken a few months first then they... finally fix it. sigh.

Also, doesn't ARK have a DX12 mode already, or is that still cooking?

The makers of ARK are still working on DX12. They initially planned to release a patch with DX12 in fall 2015 but ran into problems (i.e. DX12 performing worse than DX11 on some systems) and therefor decided to postpone until fixed. Still waiting...
