Installed over 15.11.1 betas and seem to be working OK for me. Newest game I tried it on was Dirt Rally and it worked fine. Tried Mordor worked fine so looks like I'll be keeping these for now. New GUI is so so tbh not very impressed.

I've reverted to the 15.11.1b's. I was shocked to discover that there is no way to change screen resolutions from within Crimson. The basic functionality of resolution switching has been removed from the drivers! I have to actually leave Crimson and go to Win10 Display Properties change the resolution! The systray icon no longer provides information and the functions it used to, either! Unreal. This thing seems like a console program for the xBone or PS4--it's nothing like a Catalyst release.

I've monkeyed with the custom refresh option--can't get it to work. But the ancient CRU works fine!

I thought sure that this release would add screen res & refresh control to individual game profiles, like it added fan control and overclocking--had no idea that Crimson would strip them out. This thing had to be meant for consoles. Doesn't make sense anywhere else.

Edit: Not so hard to solve this--install the 15.11.b's and then use the Device manager to install the 15.30xxxx Crimson drivers into the most recent CCC--instructions below for whomever might need them:

Install the 15.11.1b cats, then open up the Device Manager select your GPU driver under "Display Adapter." Right-click on the name of your driver, then select "Update Driver Software" and then select "Browse My Computer," and then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer," and then select "Have Disk" and then point the program here: C\:AMD\Radeon-Crimson-15.11-Win10-64-bit\Packages\Drivers\Display\WT6A_INF\C02969567.inf and select Open--and the 15.30xxxx Crimson drivers will be installed into the 15.11.1 CCC *and* you will also get the new Custom Refresh Utility--assuming you can get it to work--as well. You should have all hotkey function back, etc. Everything seems to work fine--haven't tested everything, though.



This gives you the Crimson drivers and solves all control problems with resolution switching & hotkeys, etc.



Note: The specific driver numbers above may vary a bit from your own unless you have the same card that I do--an R9 380 4GB.

The only option I ever change is now buried in the CCC remnant that is the Additional Settings of the Display section.

The Use EDID option is an effective way of limiting my display's gamut to sRGB that I usually switch off to play games, and back on to browse the web.

Instead of opening right to the last settings page I last used I have to click through 3 different buttons to get where I want.

Also opening the Additional Settings dialog resets the vlut forcing me to open another program to reload my calibration.

same here, real pain in the butt and highly unprofessional from AMD. Can't believe such issues still show up.
Totally unimpressed so far

Total garbage.

Crashes flashplayer, fan goes to 100% and the radeon control thing is fubar.
Glad I did a image on my C: drive before I installed this poor excuse of a driver.

Waited 4 months for this....?

All of my Steam games have showed up and, per the notes, AMD has autoset a profile for each game.

What criteria is being used to set that profile?

I prefer to use my own profile for each game according to my own preferences.

Is this, essentially, AMD forcing the Gaming Evolved on us?

can someone explain me why both RAIDXpert and chipset drivers installers do not show the relevant packages?
I launch the installer, select 'install' and the packages window only shows HDMI audio, control panel and drivers, but no SATA, AHCI, RAIDXpert to be installed. If I do choose to install anyway, nothing happens

No... They are default (Global Settings) unless YOU change them.

If you actually look at them they are all using the global settings.

No they will not change anything at all because they all have the same settings as the global.

Change a global setting and you will see that all of the profiles will also change to match the global, its only when you specifically change a profile will it keep its settings independent and it will say Enabled.

Well, I will post this because it may help some of you who also had a bad experience with those drivers.

Rig is in the signature and in the "System Specs" to the left too.

My first contact with "Crimson" was not utterly catastrophic, since my computer still booted after installation, but pretty bad since I lost 1000 (yes!) points in 3DMark11 and over 10 fps at exactly the same spot in World of Warcraft.

I had installed them over the previous drivers (Catalyst 15.11.1 beta) like I always do.

I then tried several things, like completely uninstalling the driver and reverting to the 15.11.1 and even the 15.7 WHQL... and dang, this time I was getting pissed, because I wasn't getting my performance back. Even with older drivers, my WoW framerates remained pathetic and my 3DMark scores even more. Also, when I went back to the Crimson drivers, the new control panel was regularly crashing and unable to be accessed unless I reboot.

At that point I was about to give up, and was even starting to think about reinstalling Windows to get my original performance back.

I went for dinner, took a welcome break, and when I came back, I tried a "last ditch" thing and downloaded "Display Driver Uninstaller". I wiped the whole thing, rebooted to a nice (=P) 800x600 VGA desktop, and installed the Crimson drivers from scratch.

And there the magic worked. Performance in WoW was back to normal and more. I gained performance in 3DMark11 and 3DMark too. The settings APP is working. My system is nice and smooth again, with improved performance and the nice "shader cache" which reduces my loading times.

So guys, if you had a bad experience with those drivers, I recommend doing and complete driver cleaning before reinstalling them. It's definitely worth a try.

Not only is the compass in Fallout 4 messed up with these drivers, but the Pip-Boy is completely invisible after a bit of playing, randomly. So I need to save and exit to the desktop, and restart the game periodically.

Whenever my weapon or pip boy hud disappears, I just to go 3rd person and back again.

It's a bug of the game.

There are really only two choices...install the 15.11.1 Cats and use the device manager to load in the Crimson driver (as I outline above. Works perfectly with the Crimson driver), or uninstall the Crimson driver and reinstall a previous Catalyst driver version of your choice. That's it. The Crimson interface is far too broken and incomplete to be of any use. (I am amazed this got released--they had to know how bad it was.)

AMD has plenty of marketing fluff...what they need to concentrate on now is substance. Marketing with no substance is worse than no marketing at all, imo.

Works fine, but only when installed on a clean system.
I didn't have the interface crash on my a single time since I did my last, clean install, as told in my previous post.

I uninstalled using the Beta driver uninstall - when it rebooted I had CCC again but no version was in the info page . I assumed it was Win10 default driver.

Installed Crimson without issue, same issue with FC3 and CFX which will cause a crash on a save (single card works the same as before without issue), Black Flag still crashes on starting a saved game.

I do like the interface better, it is more intuitive. The game settings is awesome with individual OCing settings if desired easy to do. With FarCry3 I have a desktop icon to start the game since it will not start from Steam, once I launched it from the desktop the desktop icon showed up in Crimson so I can custom set it - very cool!

As for driver optimizations I will have to run more tests.

I had installed over the top of the 15.11.1 Beta drivers and came across some problems.

First, my HDTV via HDMI wasn't being detected at all.

2nd, I could only activate two of my three Viewsonic 24 inch monitors at one time.

I've since completely uninstalled the drivers, cleaned the registry, rebooted and installed them once again.

I can now, at least, activate my HDTV once again.

I still, however, cannot seem to find where you can ARRANGE your monitors like was in the CCC. Instead, I'm going through the Windows Display options to get this type of thing done.

I'm sure a lot of this is simply from it being new, but, it's not that intuitive if you ask me.

Installed these with the Nano and noticed that there are virtually no video settings like Dynamic Contrast. Looks like it is missing from the interface. There are some but really lacking the full gamut of AMD options of the past.

Looks like the UI is not ready for prime time, it is missing some very key parts as in video options (different processing filters), positioning of monitors, resolution selection . . .

In addition to the problems mentioned previously, I just attempted to set up a 3x1 Eyefinity group on my three Viewsonic 24 inch monitors. But, the app INSISTS that my 47 inch HDTV via HDMI HAS TO BE SELECTED as part of the group. Totally insane! My HDTV is mounted on the wall and can NOT be part of an Eyefinity group.

This new design needs serious re-working.

EDIT: I did, finally, get it to work. BUT, first, I had to completely turn off my HDTV and change the connection away from the HDMI cable. (If it was kept connected to the GPU, it would automatically turn on again.)

Then, I was able to configure my three Viewsonic monitors in a 3x1 Eyefinity group. BUT, I then had to turn ON the HDTV again because all of the apps getting open were showing up on the HDTV....even though it was turned off and not actively connected.

So after a few days of gaming, zero problems. No quirks, no weird messages, no crashes, etc.

BTW, I ran the AMD uninstaller before installing these, maybe that was part of the success? For those that installed over old drivers then ran to the forums to immediately complain... try other things.

I'm going to check when I get home, but I am fairly positive that all of those options are still there. I actually remember setting the resolution on the HTPC for the TV right after install.

Also, for positioning and resolution, isn't that built into Windows anyway? And isn't just as convenient as getting into Radeon Settings (right click on desktop)? I get the convenience of having those within the AMD UI, but I hope people aren't pretending its the end of the world...
