Drivers are obviously beta or pre-beta state at this point, or they would not have been pulled. I'm willing to bet they will support all GCN cards, at the very least (and probably the 6000 series as well), in their final incarnation, even if all features won't be fully enabled on older architectures.

I have an R9 290X, amongst other cards, by the way.

As I was saying about unfinished driver releases...don't let the level of support included in a leaked build color your opinions. There have been AMD drivers that eventually supported the full spectrum of remotely modern cards started out only supporting a handful of APUs, or a single line of FirePro cards upon initial release/leak.

Are you a console player? If yes then 1080P is going to be the present and the future for you.

Also, since when did the 280 become a "low end" GPU? The 280, 280X, 7950, 7970 are mid-range GPUs, with enough power and VRAM to push high settings at 1080p.

1080P is history.
and why do you think AMD and Nvidia released VSR and DSR wink.gif

To make 1080p look better.

So sloppy that they deliver a competing product versus Nvidia's offering every generation rolleyes.gif

They should add custom resolution to CCC and it will be golden.

How about I quote AMD directly ...

http://i.imgur.com/XzPWNU3.jpg

"AMD also focused on improving the driver experience by fixing a MASSIVE AMOUNT OF BUGS" (Last page, in AMD's own words.)

Massive amount of bugs? Shouldn't a good set of drivers NOT have a massive amount of them to fix? ESPECIALLY the RELEASED versions that this beta release supposedly fixed? And lets face it, the ones they list in the text after that direct quote ... are pretty MAJOR ones.

I'm just saying.

Bingo!

4K will remain largely a novelty in 2015. Maybe by 2016 or 2017 when the 1080p TVs and monitors start failing after 3-5 years, people will replace them with 4K, but most people aren't going to run out and drop another $1000+ for a 4K 60Hz+ monitor.

Virtually all drivers have massive amounts of bugs. Just look at the NVIDIA driver release notes, specifically the known issues, and the list of issues they never intend to fix.

I have plenty of drivers that work plenty well enough for my purposes, but I don't think I have drivers for anything that has few enough total bugs for me to be able to argue about which driver may have more or less. A forest doesn't have to be very large for you to not see the edge when you are standing in the middle of it.
