Awesome! I will report back on VR performance as well as impact of Radeon Chill on VR as soon as I get off work.

Great job w1zard. Don't you think this software needs one of your highly recommended review badge? :D

Gonna check it out when I get home, though I have a feeling some (if not most) of the new features won't work on my HD7870 XT.
Definetly a step up with their software, keep it up AMD.

Something like this introduced alongside this year's "Polaris" hardware launches could have helped AMD in a big way.
Or - or - AMD could have delivered Polaris hardware that didn't leak power like a sieve. You know, the hardware they promised? Instead they have to fall back to what is essentially a hack (a clever hack, but still a hack) to lower power draw.

Reminds me of Barcelona and Bulldozer and their TLB bugs that could only be fixed with a BIOS update that kneecapped performance. Now Zen is rumoured to have a similar defect. This is a disappointing pattern from AMD.

Good stuff. Pretty tempted to grab an amd gpu (7770 sadly died on me after a short lived revive) and get back to pc gaming.

Get mad at GloFo for that one. AMD has a good design that is let down by their fab yet again.

that crimson relive is useful, I usually used OBS for recording but if relive can do just as good a job then thats great. It sucks that they did not put back the plethora of video options that the old catalyst had though, guess they moved on.

Green wattman though ha

Pretty sure they didnt abandon the 290 just yet, havent tried the new driver yet, but switching from Catalyst 15.7 to 16.11 do brings improvement to Witcher 3 (the only games that i play)

so maybe you might be getting minor improvement like they said

my 7950 clocks down to 500 mhz (my 2d clocks because of 75hz monitor) core clock in full load in WoW, instead of the OC profile amount I set at 1100 mhz, the memory clock does go to the OC'd 1450 mhz and stays there. So the profile is being applied.
I did a clean install of these new drivers.

Pretty evil bug in my book.

Did anyone get the System Info to show in ReLive? I was hoping to see FPS, temps, load, etc. but nothing seems to be there ... Otherwise the recording seems to work fine.

Thanks for the info - my 7950 goes around 1200/1700 and i'd like for it to stay that way. I guess I'll wait with changing drivers.

Did You have the Chill turned on?

Shadowplay was a defining feature and one that basically forced my hand. This is great news for AMD.
