My 10.12 Experience - Horrible and Kinda Scary

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 
Well, from what I experienced, those drivers made my slave core essentially dead. I noticed that my framerate was almost half of what it used to be in JC2 and BC2. Then I thought maybe Catalyst AI was disabled but it wasn't. I fire up MSI Afterburner and FurMark and I notice my slave core is stuck on idle clocks (400/1010) with 0% utilization and my master core is doing all the work.

For a sec I thought that my card's core was dead. "Hooray, I now have an expensive, down-clocked 5870." All I did was update to 10.12 from 10.11. I thought I'd have to RMA. I checked device manager and windows could detect both cores. I checked GPU-Z and it could detect both cores. I tried several restarts but that never helped.

Rolling back to 10.11 was another headache (to the point where Driver Sweeper was failing me) but I finally got everything working especially my slave core.



So my question is: WHAT HAPPENED WITH 10.12 AND MY CARD?!?!?



TL;DR : slave core acts dead on 10.12. rollback and works fine on 10.11. what happened?

Seriously, all these ATI drivers stories scare the hell out of me. If ATI happens to smash Nvidia next GPU series I might be afraid to switch.

10.12 has been a nightmare for me as well.. Screen tares all day long. Laggy alt tab. Low FPS. Its like they let a kid write the driver and say UPLOAD this now. sad. :/

You and me both should be scared.

This is what I think when I think about AMD making new drivers.

guys which one is the 10.10e that so much people talk about?

what that "e" means?

and hmm, could the driver cause artifacts? or somehow make an OC unstable?

Yeah I'm having similar problems with 10.12a.
Hopefully the next driver fixes them.

I noticed you mentioned Driver Sweeper.

My opinion: you're doing it wrong.

I never have a problem with drivers as I just do a fresh format and have a fresh install
