Liking the change so far thumb.gif

I've been using nVidia and AMD cards at the same time on two systems for over a year now (since last spring, one's been upgraded with GTX 670 and then stepped down to a GTX 660 Ti and the other upgraded with a 7970), and I've not had problems with either one. Both computers are used daily for games and such, and I honestly don't see any difference in driver stability or general performance. I've increased contrast and digital vibrancy on my nVidia system, and it looks great like my AMD system. If you look at the nVidia beta driver thread (latest), you'll see people having problems. It's been a pretty even experience, in my opinion, where both camps have overall good drivers and some issues here and there.

The flicker has been around for a few versions. John says its an old bug, but no one else has complained about it in the thread.

The newest version also re-introduces the SMAA/Sweetfx overlay gamma over saturation issue.

I assume he made some changes to that code for people that were having lockup issues, and broke it somehow.

Id go back several released to avoid those bugs...

Mmm, latest RadeonPro 1.1.1.0 Preview I used(19 december latest revision) was wonderful with SweetFX(1.2, 1.3 and 1.4, although 1.4 new settings like curves appeared with a # before the name, but worked nonetheless).

It was when I upgraded to 1.1.1.0 13April under 13.3b drivers when it started flickering, and couldn't launch a single game. In my case, reverting just one release to 11April fixed everything. Gonna test with 13.4 WHQL to see if everything is still gold. Come back in 5 minutes wink.gif

I have no problem with Nvidia aside from price versus performance. But after reading all the crap about AMD drivers and crossfire issues I half expected the devil to possess my computer after installing AMD smile.gif

That's the problem--misinformation and prejudice interfere with objective decisions and influence people in wrong directions--that happens in many different areas.

I don't know who Asder00 is or why the drivers he posted are legit so, yes, more information is required when installing software onto my computer without a source to back it up.

 

Thanks.

You have to put it in perspective.

People with issues are the vocal minority.

Also the issues we tend complain about tend to be 1st world problems. Only people who are really in to hardware/benchmarking are going to even care.

99% of the buying public will have no perceivable problems whatsoever.

on both the red and greens sides.

Since this driver gets released today, I can now comment:

13.4 WHQL is the Microsoft-certified version of 13.3 Beta. Aside from the addition of HD 7990 support, it offers no additional improvements.

If you have an issue with Catalyst, please do me a favor submit it to THIS FORM.

You will release the new betas too like the 13.1 WHQL and 13.2 beta situation?

Ryzen is a joke to the vast majority of the market who would consider buying their product.

Thanks.

hes been here a lonng time and gets us leaks long before anyone else does.

Believe me, if its from Asder00, its as legit as it gets.

that having been said, these leaks generally come from hardware vendors and reviewers who were given early copies to test their hardware which is why they tend to be in .zip, or .7zip format.

As a side, i wonder why we havent got a leaked copy of 13.5beta2, as the review sites/vendors have had them for some time....Perhaps AMD is getting better at plugging their leaks.

lol
