[AMD] CRIMSON 16.1.1. HOTFIX - Page 8

post #71 of 97
Seems to have improved performance along w/ my other tweaks to super smooth on FO4 from previously really jerky in intense areas on my R9 290X.

I do not think Microsoft have anything to do with the missing Vsync support in AMD's driver.

It seems to me this is just our typical AMD problem that they didnt went out their way to improve their driver features.

it is 16.1.1 already and the driver Vsync support are still sup par when compared to the competition.

Well that's odd. "Hotfixes" are not usually considered beta updates. I do not agree at all with the way AMD does stuff. From their odd CPUs, to complicated driver updates. AMD is just a strange, weird, eccentric company.

Not sure how it is weird or in any complicated to go onto a website and download a beta driver

Its not complicated but its very inconvenient. Especially considering the fact that every time you are pretty much forced to do a clean driver install.

Let's examine the ways:

1) AMD releases a driver update, cool.
2) Go to Radeon control center. (see advertisements) Click update.
3) No update.
4) Go to AMD website (see more advertisements)
5) Search for updates. No updates found.
6) manually search for updates.
7) Updates available.
8) Mind blown.

After 1 hour of searching...

When they next do a WHQL driver that will be the one it will auto update to as that is the stable certified by windows driver.

The beta drivers are basically the same driver with improvements for individual games. If you play the latest games then it's best to keep up to date with their latest beta driver. Most people don't play the latest games though and don't care as long as the driver works with what they are doing

Can I just add I have been using the last two generations of AMD cards and I have never once done a clean driver install

I had a 7950 and now I have a 290X, I have done numerous clean driver installs.
