Afterburner reports 300MHz on the VRAM for both cards on desktop 2560x1080 144Hz Mini DP. RSC 16.2. Always has done with every driver release. Except 1 driver, which ran it at 500MHz.

Oh right. So the issue is with multi screens?

With MSI AB, disable power play and set new minimum clocks.

At least you can force MSI AB to run at reduced clocks by disabling power play followed by setting new min clocks.

I'm not sure why. Maybe b/c of 2 monitors, maybe b/c one is 144Hz, one is 60Hz, one is digital, one is analog. But it's been happening since Crimson was released I think

I had that with my 290x ,

If you ran a youtube video on one of the screens the GPU would run at 100% , which is not ideal

I disabled hardware accel. and my usage and clocks remain low during a Youtube video.

Probably, only by having 2 monitors. I know it puts more strain on GPU. I remember when I had 580, it didn't even d/clock core clock, b/c GPU couldn't handle it. Maybe AMD decided that 2D VRAM clock is not enough... or maybe it's just a bug.

Have they finally fixed the Crimson software?

It doesn't save settings for specific profiles or even global profiles.

It does not disable crossfire in games that don't support it like the older software used to. For example, if I want to play Rocket League on a single 7970 it doesn't disable crossfire, even if I create a custom profile for the game, and thus I need to go into additional settings and physically disable crossfire.

Zero core does not work.

Fallout 4 with crossfire takes ages to load.

Amongst other issues.

The last good driver for the 7970 was 15.11.1 beta.

It's obvious that performance with Crimson is better but the software is absolutely broken and needs to be fixed. This is ridiculous.
