I have been a member since 2001 and have beein using ATI then AMD since 1999. This is the first time ever in my life I hate AMD so much and the first time EVER I have non-functual drivers for so long.

Any 3x1 eyefinty users be cautious but let us know how you go if you try

back to 17.11.4, though I might go back to 17.11.3 as that is the last driver that could reliably detect all monitors.
All drivers since 17.7.1 for my R9 290 caused system to freeze when enabling Eyefinity or Bezel Compensation and AMD never mentioned it. The only time they mention it now with 17.12.1, it works fine for me!

The new drivers are 100% unusable for me because of 2 issues:

1-Youtube videos freeze PC when Eyefinity and Bezel Compensation are active and even videos on my PC like MKVs also freeze the system and I have to hard restart.

2-The horrible problem of the 2 side monitors not fully going to sleep.

AMD broke a very simple functionality since 17.7.1 and never cared to fix it with side monitors not sleeping.
