    I was trying to say they were done and released by the companies who produced the software and not by independent reviewers. I can't wait to see those but it seems there's no driver available yet.

    To delay a beta driver, the issue had to have been catastrophic. AMD released beta drivers every few days during the end of last year, and even though those semiweekly releases had major issues all their own, AMD still released them.

    I want frame pacing support, yet it gets tied up due to an issue in Mantle and delayed again. But what's another 36 hours after waiting 3 months past their promised date?

    Press gets it 24 hour ahead of public. Some sites already have the driver.

    Some time today it should be out for all of us.

    Redundancy is important.

    Let me get this straight.... This patch was to be released in the middle of December. First it was DICE that was at blame for the delay of implementation. DICE finally launches their patch and all of a sudden AMD finds a critical bug at the very last minute? WTF was the driver team doing the last month and half? You would think a reputable company would actually have some foresight into such issues considering they were afforded an additional month and half to implement these drivers...
