  • [INFO] AMD users: driver testing

    As a request, I would ask that this is kept out of the tech section for a while, as I would like to see people's response...

    Guys, keep an eye on the upcoming AMD catalyst 14.1 BETA. When the BETA hits, MANTLE and DirectX 11.2 will finally be supported for HD 7000, R700, and R200 cards. Claims by AMD indicate that in some cases there are up to a 45% increase in performance in games such as BF4, which apparently supports MANTLE.

    I am going to try testing out the BETA when it becomes officially available for download.

    Anybody have thoughts on this?

          no idea, but what I later read, we need to wait for the bug that is coming out for BF4 later this month

            Wow that's a massive gain in a game. It's like jumping up 3 generations in video cards. I'll be curious to see your results

                  think it was my typo... R7 and R9 or whatever the two new card series are

                    By the way, you AMD HD7950 users out there, it looks like you can unlock them to the HD7970 the really are.

                          Re: AMD users: driver testing

                          I have the 7950. My card is overclocked to 1120ghz and 1575ghz on the memory. That is basically a 25% improvement alone. If Mantle gives just 20% that will be a nice improvement. I was going to go crossfire with the 7950 until they discontinued the card. AMD needs to add a setting that locks in the OC in a gaming settings tab. Sometimes the cards throttle down to 850mhz, my card is a 925mhz boost card. I monitor the frequency of the core and the memory on my Logitech G15 gaming keyboard OSD. For cards like the 7950 and above, people are not paying to save power. I have an i5 3570k running at 4.5ghz 24x7. Who needs throttling or turbos?

                          I built my current system with a few recycled parts simply for BF4. I am looking forward to Mantle and the next drivers.
