Crossfire Profiles available for
  • The Division
  • XCOM 2

Resolved Issues

I wish to know the ROTR improvements for a single cards. Sadly I think no site is going to do a benchmark on this game anymore comparing old drivers and new drivers frown.gif

Good news is I am VR ready...bad news is, it only uses two of the three GPU's for the test...

Daft question, as this is my first foray into the crimson drivers. How'd the hell do you globally turn crossfire on/off? Google tends to come up with the "Global settings > additional options" but I don't have that option, unless I'm missing something?

Performance is still very bad with 3x 200 series cards in ROTTR.

I have some stutter/pause with 2 cards, but it's not as frequent as 3 cards.

I must be running out of vram on this game. frown.gif

Tyvm for that, I found it. Although I don't have the additional settings on the right-click menu.. infact disabling Xfire locks up my PC, every time with a new driver this happens it's the only problem I ever have with AMD cards.

I'll have to check my vram usage tonight when I have more play time on these drivers.

In certain places outside the Soviet Installation, if I'm standing still the frame rate drops down to 10-20fps and stays there with 3 cards. 2 cards doesn't have this problem in the same area. Most drop I see on 2 cards is in the low 30fps range. It feels like the game is hitching and waiting for things to catch up when I have 3 cards enabled.
