Got 'em!

Installed without a hitch. So far, so good.

Eyefinity works with these. Unless you're looking for something specific. I just did get my 3x1 configuration setup to confirm that it works.

It's actually 2013.0905.312.3832.

skrybe Sep 6, 2013 07:44 AM

Nice. These fix the poor performance after sleep problem the 13.8 betas had - at least in WoW. Tested it and FPS is very similar after resuming from sleep to what it was before.

Jaillum Malord Sep 6, 2013 08:52 AM

No custom resolution tool for unlocked pixel clock :(

badsykes Sep 6, 2013 09:40 AM

The driver version seems the same as 13.8 beta 2 only the CCC is different...Where those performance modifications resides?

well lost my 120hz resolution, can only do 60hz now for some reason.
not so impressed.
Back to 13.4 since that driver works.

I had the same issue with 13.8B2 driver, no 120 hz in eyefinity. Going back to 13.6 betas solved the issue. I guess this problem still exists with 13.10 betas? Have not tried them yet.

I'm getting an Event ID 7000 with these drivers

Description:
The AODDriver4.2.0 service failed to start due to the following error:
Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.

There were no errors during the install though.

Also, did a clean install of these drivers (uninstall drivers, driver sweeper in safe mode, etc.)

Oh?! Then mine hasn't updated. I installed ontop of 13.8 Beta 2; maybe my CCC hasn't been updated that way.

I'll uninstall/ reinstalll tonight to be sure.

clerick Sep 6, 2013 03:39 PM

Do these have dx9 frame pacing?

joe3000 Sep 6, 2013 04:45 PM

good & bad
 
The 13.10s are good performance wise, and AMD fixed color page under video settings, big thanks for that! :)

But for GTA IV & Episodes From Liberty City it's not good news, old problem with "very high" water still persists. On all highest settings in both games water looks like this:
http://postimg.org/image/3wbwye2iz

And this is what it should look like:
http://postimg.org/image/aeqpf5jqb

This is on Asus Radeon 7870 V2, AMD FX 6300, Win7 x86.
So please AMD can you fix this too?!
Thanks in advance!

And you were right!

Thanks smp26 for paying attention! :up:

This time i first uninstalled (normal way + using AMD uninstall tool), then reinstalled Cat 13.10beta.

DarkFoss Sep 7, 2013 09:41 AM

So far so good. They knocked a couple seconds off my tpf on FAH's 8900 & 7811. Watching some season episodes with Amazon prime the video playback was noticeably smoother. Will try some games later.

I still hope to see those drivers with the memory improvements soonish :p

casnin Sep 7, 2013 12:25 PM

no surprise
 
And just to add this since no one has said it yet....

These drivers still do not fix the 'alt-tab crash' issue with every game if you are running win 8.1 build 9431. Gimmie the final build already MS! Cmon.

bobmitch Sep 7, 2013 11:18 PM

These gave me the ability to overclock my 7850 to 960 / 5200 with no issues at all. More headroom and better overall performance...

Hmm, I'm going to have to re-evaluate my overclock with these. See if I can break 900 core with crossfire again. :D

Got my 7850's running at 1000/1320. How did you get 5200 out of them? Mine maxes out at 1450.

Peace

Spyhawk Sep 8, 2013 03:35 PM

Bummer... another driver update with hardly any single gpu improvements. I guess there's no performance left to find with Tahiti. Its cool. I will either upgrade or go cf.

He's just using the QDR number for his vram. Your 1320 overclock is running at QDR 5280, which is higher than the 5200 mentioned in the previous post.

vipernig Sep 8, 2013 08:08 PM

Well this works well. Except now crysis 2 on ultra with directx11 enabled has rendering issues with outside scenes. The textures are a gulp of yellow. Was working fine WTF. This is on 7970hs in XF.

Blín D'ñero Sep 8, 2013 09:09 PM

It's a tesselation issue: AMD Optimzed does not work anymore in Crysis 2 DX11 Ultra.
You get yellow? I got flat white (outdoors) and black (indoors), at all spots (piles of rubble, brick walls) where tesselated textures were now totally absent.
If you use the AMD uninstall tool (like i did) before installing Catalyst, your previous settings are erased too. Hence in CCC, Tesselation will be set at factory default, which is "AMD optimized". Just set it to "Application controlled". Problem solved!

magemaster Sep 8, 2013 10:59 PM

Anyone else had problem on watching videos using HDMI?? The sound works for a while then starts muting , crackling.

vipernig Sep 9, 2013 12:41 AM

Thanks. Made a profile for that an now it works fine. I am now getting problems with Crysis and Sleeping Dogs giving a black screen on the extended monitor. I have to disable fullscreen and the reenable it in Sleeping dogs for it to properly display on the main screen and have the extended screen show normal. So here goes another new bug.

I'm so glad you brought this up because the only way I could fix it was to set the game to dx9. I've now made a profile in RadeonPro to set tesselation to Application controlled for Crysis 2. Thanks :)

...btw my textures were light blue lol

I'm not seeing any alt-tab crash..I use it all the time to switch between 3 instances of EverQuest.

vipernig Sep 10, 2013 05:31 PM

I tried skyrim today and I don't know if this is new or not but I am having issues with flickering water and the sound buzzing for a second or 2. I did not notice this problem before but I haven't played it in a while either.

So I have the 1.9 update and again crossfire with 2 7970. I erased my ini file and started the game again to make sure that it is not due to some disabled vsync. It only happens with crossfire so I don't know if it is a 2 second microstuttering occuring. But when I enter a place I hear pans flying around. I open a chest and when I close it the stuff on top flies off. And most importantly I see water buzzing. It is not really flickering but more like the water buzzing or strobing with an a buzzing sound. Very annoying.

Anyone has a clue what is going on?
